What is eFoiling?
EFoiling is one of the most fascinating types of watersports and can almost be deemed the “future of watersports.” It provides surfers with spectacular experiences on previously unrideable waves. EFoiling can be done on any body of water, including the ocean, lakes and rivers. You don’t need waves to propel the eFoil since the motor does it for you. Discover rare maritime creatures, explore new rivers and surf ocean waves with your eFoil.
How Does an eFoil Work?
Starting from the bottom, the eFoil has two foil wings — a front and a rear wing. Respectively, these wings create lift and help stabilize the board. Next, the fuselage is a bar that attaches perpendicularly to the mast and wings, creating stability. The wings and fuselage mimic the shape of a paper airplane.
The electric propeller mounted just above the wings and fuselage propels the board over the water. The mast holds and connects the bottom components to the board, creating enough pressure underneath to lift the board in the air and out of the water.
A rechargeable battery, kept in the board itself, and a virtually silent electric motor powers the eFoil. A handheld wireless remote that connects through Bluetooth operates the eFoil.
Flite are continually innovating and developing new technologies that, when scaled, have the potential to create a future of quiet, clean ocean enjoyment and water transport.
Fliteboards are able to carry an 80kg human at foiling speed using less than 700 watts of battery powered electricity. They are quiet above the water, and have an underwater acoustic profile that is significantly less impactful than even the smallest petrol marine motor. They are manufactured to commercial grade and built to last.
‘Fliteboards are possibly the world’s most efficient and environmentally friendly powered marine vehicles.’ – David Trewern
