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 two 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 with corrections, including best practices and techniques to improve your ride and experience.
We can do lessons on the beach, the Intercoastal Waterway, or on inland fresh water. The best learning experience will be provided at a location with adequate water depth, smoother water surface conditions, and lighter crowds. Naturally, these can be driven by weather, but good conditions can be located in most bodies of water as long as you are flexible about the exact time (so we can plan around weather trends) and location (so we can plan around crowds). Your instructor will consider your location preferences, and will send a location pin or address you can enter in your favorite cell phone app for where to meet.
Generally what you would normally bring for a day on the water. 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 (if needed)
Be ready to share the stoke!
Lift eFoils are built to provide many years of safe, reliable, fun as only a magic carpet that flies on the water can! A complete eFoil setup runs around $12,000. Now in the 4th year of production, there are many options available, including board sizes, front foil wings, and rear wings, to tune the riding experience to the rider/owner's preference. We will work with you and set up to your dream configuration in a shopping cart ready for checkout online. Remember $250 of your lesson will also be discounted to your Lift eFoil purchase!
