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 2.5 hours. 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. Its a magic carpet!
There are NO Prerequisites for taking an E-Foil Lesson besides being able to swim. Riders with board sports experience will learn quicker. However, eFoiling is surprisingly user friendly and pretty much ANYONE can learn rapidly without any previous water sports experience.
Your instructor will meet you at the scheduled place and time with the appropriate gear for your lesson. We start with a discussion about how to safely operate the eFoil in the surrounding area and go through the controls, operation, and eFoil components. Next we'll practice on the beach/shore everything you will need to know to get up on the eFoil and ride, Then we'll get out on the water and put what you just learned in practice: mounting the board, controlled riding in the prone position, transitioning to you knees, sitting up, moving to your feet, and touch-and-goes flying the foil. All while your instructor moves you along at your own best pace, including sharing best practices and techniques to improve your ride and experience. For a look at the process scroll down to the bottom of this page and see lesson photos under PROGRESSION.
We provide lessons at a number of different launch locations throughout the area, chosen to provide you the best possible opportunity to ride and progress. Whether you are a vacationer visiting our beautiful beaches or are a local looking for a fun new water sport, we can also bring the eFoiling experience to you at your location for a small fee.
Generally what you would normally bring for a day at the beach. Your instructor will have everything needed to make your experience great. A helmet and life jacket are mandatory for all lessons and are provided. No exceptions.
Sunglasses with a leash
Booties/water shoes (bring you own or ask for a loaner set)
Helmet (if you have your own, bring it!)
Wetsuit or a rash guard (if needed)
Be ready to share the stoke!

Lift was the first company to design, build, and market the eFoil back in 2017. Lift continues to lead innovation, providing better, stronger, easier learning on progressive model releases. The first model (Lift or E1) had a squared off front that comes to three points instead of the newer rounded front. It was offered in white and clear gloss showing the dark carbon fiber construction. The second model (Lift2 or E2) was available in white and blue with stripes running from tip to tail; and a gloss black finish. The Lift3 or E3) was available in a carbon fiber construction in brushed blue, brushed white, and a matte black with carbon flake. The current generation eFoils include the Lift4 all carbon fiber board and Lift 3F fiberglass construction, along with a host of new accessory front and rear wing options, battery size options, folding and standard props, etc.
