The Original. Now in the 3rd Generation. The Lift Foils eFoil e3 from the electric hydrofoil pioneers.
Enjoy flying above the water with the Lift Foils eFoil which was the first electric hydrofoil shipping in volumes since 2018. No other eFoil offers more options to fine-tune the experience and was sold more worldwide.
The eFoil electric hydrofoil uses an advanced high energy density Lithium Ion battery to power a silent electric motor in a hydrodynamic torpedo design; all of which is controlled with a wireless bluetooth hand controller. Since the eFoil is electric, noise is eliminated and maintenance becomes incredibly easy compared to gas engines. Not only can you ride the powered board on nearly any surface of water, you can rise up on the hydrofoil to literally fly above the water for an incredible experience, with ride times up to an hour at speeds of more than 40 km/h or 25mph.

It also features a high performance carbon fiber board and hydrofoil to give users the ultimate smooth and responsive riding experience.
We recommend eFoil usage for riders ages 16+ and less than 120 kg or 270 pounds, and have found that users of any adult age and experience have been able to have fun and rapidly learn on the eFoil.
Lift Foils eFoil Lithium Ion Batteries
Lift Foils worked with top engineers in the USA to create a custom lithium battery built for rugged marine environments. This battery offers performance, convenience, and the most comprehensive safety components on the market. It lasts up to an hour depending on rider weight/speed and is enclosed in a rugged, IP68 waterproof housing that allows it to be transported and installed safely. The eFoil battery is also easily replaceable and rechargeable with charge times less than two and a half hours.
Battery Management System (BMS)Our battery is equipped with a highly sophisticated BMS that protects against overcharging, overcurrent, excess voltage, deep discharge, short-circuit, and overheating to say the least. All safety related components are redundant and our battery has the ability to automatically disconnect itself from the system when needed, constantly protecting the board and user from any undesirable situations.
Waterproof Our battery is fully submersible to IP68 standards to keep internal components protected from moisture and corrosion.
High Energy Density Our battery lasts approximately one hour.
Easily Interchangeable and Rechargeable Recharge time is 2.5 hours.
Both Lift Foils and the Electric Hydrofoil Shop from E-Surfer care about battery safety.
Lift Foils eFoil Wireless Hand Controller
Our hand controller gives the rider complete control in his or her hand for an effortless, smooth ride. By pressing the throttle, riders can go up to 40 km/h or 25 miles per hour and automatically shut off the engine just by releasing the lever. Key information such as speed settings, alerts, and battery charge percentages are displayed on the screen. The controller is waterproof, floats, and comes with a strap to keep it secured to the rider’s hand.
Wireless Bluetooth TechEvery time the rider presses the lever, the controller gives a wireless signal to the board, and the motor then reacts instantaneously to adjust speed without interference.
Magnetic Actuator The lever uses magnets and a hall effect sensor to control throttle actuation, leaving the internal components sealed and completely waterproof.
SafetyThe hand controller commands the motor, which will automatically shut off if the lever is released, if the hand controller is submerged in water, or the hand controller is greater than 10 feet from the eFoil.
Display Screen – Speed settings, alerts, and battery charge percentages are displayed on the screen.
Automatic Power RegulationIn the event of a low battery, the controller will automatically throttle the rider back to a lower power setting as a signal to get back to shore safely.
Lift Foils eFoil Motor & Propellers
The motor was designed to be an extension of the rider. Unlike gas engines, electric motors have no lag and deliver maximum torque on command. This instant response allows riders to have complete control over speed – there is no delay from rider input to motor output.
Computer ControlThe motor leverages the eFoil’s built in computer, which is programmed to set the perfect accelerations, decelerations, and speed outlets so rider gets the most stability and control on the water.
SilentHigh energy in a compact space allows the board to travel swiftly through the water without the irritant noise created by gas engines.
Submersible in WaterEvery component is double sealed against the elements and uses high-end corrosion resistant materials.
Hydrodynamic Torpedo DesignPierces through the water smoothly with minimal drag.
Ducted PropellerOur ducted propeller offers the best thrust to energy ratio over a variety of speeds. This helps conserve battery power and maximizes thrust for an ideal riding experience.
Board & Foil
Lift Foils goal over their decade in the market has always been to create the best high performance foils, period. The knowledge gained from designing several generations of foils through refinement and innovation has led to the new smooth, easy to use hydrofoil featured in the Lift eFoil. It strikes the perfect balance between stability and maneuverability so riders of all levels can lean, carve, and edge with ease. The foil is what provides the unique feeling that combines the sensations of surfing and flying all in one.
Depending on the rider’s weight and performance preference, we offer multiple boards to choose from: Larger boards offer an easier ride, especially for larger or less experienced riders, and the smaller boards are easier to manoeuvre for more experienced riders who want the best performance.
