A nice invention from the kitefoiling scene: the Remora !
The story: http://www.kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=196&t=2399694
Product presentation and tests: https://www.facebook.com/RemoraProducts/
Web site: soon http://remorasucks.com/
Availability: probably August 2018
Suitable for any foil activity with a 165 x 90mm screw pattern plate including efoil.
If used with an efoil, and if you don’t want to modify the integrity of your board, a solution that connects the motor cable going from board top to mast is still to be found.

We are making progress with @Gobbla 's project: http://www.efoil.builders/t/french-build-born-in-lyon/2197/19. The next step is now the electric box maintained on the board with suction cups :grin:

I would prefer foot hooks on suction cups, like that your ankles are safe in case you fall :grin:

Retro fitting SupFoil boards is a huge market ( @VeFoil one for you in 2019)
Imagine a company that would provide a dismountable plug and play efoil kit:

  • electric box on suction cups to fit to the back of the board
  • cables hidden inside flush rails (from electric box to board tail, from board tail to mast plate, from mast plate to pod).
  • pod

Nice and easy, totally hidden complexity : no hole in the board or mast (1), no visible cable, no screw just sticky tape (rare or none), five (100 to 150 mm according to mast chord) adjustable (+ 0 / +10 mm) pods with sticky foam to adapt to any kind of mast :sunglasses:

(1) possibly a notch (but not a hole) on the mast trailing edge to maintain the pod vertically.
