Lift eFoil

Lift eFoil

If you’ve been wondering what those flying boards are popping up (literally) out on the water, they are an eFoil. eFoils are part Surfboard part Hydrofoil part Hoverboard. We’ve enjoyed bearing witness to the innovation that has taken place in the board culture. The love for the lifestyle combined with ingenuity continues to invent new ways for us to get out on and experience the water (and air). There is a board for all of us – wakeboarding, surfing, SUPing, foiling.

Lift produces a complete line of boards and wings to fit your needs. The company is family owned and has been producing eFoils in Puerto Rico since 2010. In 2013, co-founder Nick Leason, a mechanical engineer and avid surfer, came up with the idea for the original eFoil and has shipped thousands of boards since.

Electric foiling lets you always be up and do some real exploring as you glide above the water. No more trying to find that wave or bum a pull.

The board is made of carbon fiber and is controlled via blue tooth wireless hand controller. The lithium battery has a 2 hour recharge time and gives you a ride time from 60-90 minutes at speeds up to 25 mph.

A Lift board with surf foil runs $14k-ish. Go choose and order your eFoil now to experience the dual fluidity of water and air yourself.

The Lift – An Electric Hydrofoil

Marty McFly’s hover board on water?  The Lift eFoil allows riders to fly over water at up to 25 mph, no waves or towing required.  The eFoil uses a state of the art lithium ion battery, a hydrodynamic, torpedo designed, electric propulsion unit along with custom electronics. It also features a high performance carbon fiber board and hydrofoil to give users the ultimate smooth and responsive riding experience.

The company is based in Puerto Rico and Austin, TX and  just started shipping pre-orders after 10 years of R&D.  You can order yours for $12K with a $6K deposit here.  They estimate shipment to be 4 months from order.
