The Ultimate Guide to Powered Surfing and Foiling
What’s an eFoil?
An eFoil is a hydrofoil with an advanced lithium-ion battery that powers a silent electric motor that’s mounted on an all-carbon hydrofoil. Electric and gas-powered boards float over the water, just like traditional surfboards, but eFoils turn the experience up a notch by allowing you to surf above the water. They weigh between thirty-five and sixty-five pounds, and are controlled by a wireless bluetooth remote. Prices start at $5,900 and go up to around $13,900. Most of the key players on the market, however, are between the $10,000 and $12,000 marks.
How Do The Experiences Of Powered Surfing And EFoiling Compare?
As with all water sports, the powered surfing option that you choose depends on what you’re looking to get out of the experience. This invention allow you to explore previously inaccessible places on a surfboard: lakes, canals, and waveless oceans, working as a sort of hybrid between a board and a boat (or a jetski).
The eFoil provides a similar experience to the other motorized surfboards but as we mentioned before, it comes with the added bonus of allowing you to fly over the water. When the board is going fast enough and the majority of your weight is on the back of the board, the board lifts up out of the water so that you’re gliding balanced only on the foil. This makes for an exceptionally weightless and agile ride that not only allows you to explore places you could not explore before, but also to ride new waves in ways that you couldn’t with any traditional surfboard, motorized or otherwise.
The eFoil also comes in a variety of models and sizes to be able to accommodate all levels of athletic expertise. It is also easily disassembled and reassembled so that the toy itself is a lot more portable and storable than the other contenders in the powered surfboard field. The length of the ride depends on your body weight, but on average you can get around an hour of flight time before you need to recharge (a full recharge takes about two hours).
