About the Lift E-foil
As the creators of the original eFoil, Lift is the leader of this new sport. They have combined the modern technology of electric vehicles with a decade of hydrofoil design and expertise; the result is an elegant and sophisticated ride. The eFoil is no longer a dream or a prototype- they have been in full production for over a year and have delivered over 1,000 units around the world.
How does an E-foil work?
Basically the hydrofoil wing creates lift in the water as the speed is increased from the propulsion motor. The motor is powered by a large lithium battery that can last up to an hour and half. The speed and power is controlled by a wireless bluetooth remote you hold in your hand. Once basic throttle skills are acquired, the speed creates enough lift for the board to come out of the water. Basically its a magic carpet! Come take a ride.
We teach students on the 5’6″ Cruiser with the large 200 or 250 wings! We also have a 5’0″ to demo once proper skills are acquired. We can teach you all about the boards, wings, remote and batteries.
- All-carbon fiber hydrofoil
- Advanced lithium-ion battery to power a silent electric motor
- Wireless Bluetooth hand controller
- Over an hour of ride time at up to 25 mph.
How does your experience on the Lift eFoil transfer over to Surf or Sup foiling?
There is no question that riding an eFoil has helped my foiling in all other disciplines. We all can agree that no matter how many Youtube videos you watch or forums you read, there is no substitution for repetition if you want to advance your skills in pretty much anything. In my eyes, riding an eFoil is exactly this! It has the added benefit of being incredibly fun in itself. The eFoil provides the foiling experience for an extended time while allowing your body to create the necessary muscle memory. It takes away the element of having to catch a wave or harness the wind. You are in control of your speed. The weight of the battery and board is different than what you may experience on a prone or SUP, but this makes these lighter boards feel even more lively when switching. I kind of look at it like a baseball player swinging a weighted bat prior to stepping up to the plate. A good example is when I was learning to wingsurf, I struggled with riding the foil on my switch stance. While doing some eFoil lessons, I started playing around with it. After a couple sessions, it started to feel natural. This was a game changer. My next wingsurf session was much smoother as my body just seemed to know what to do. Although it may not be exactly the same as riding a wave, the body movements and sensations are extremely similar and overall foiling is foiling and riding an eFoil will definitely help all other hydrofoiling disciplines.
