I figured I would create a new thread for my second board build.
After testing my first build by ratchet strapping and duct taping everything to a SUP foil board…
I ended up just buying a Lift 4’4" board which I retrofitted to house my custom battery, electronics, and slingshot foil.
The DIY Lift board is amazing. However, because it’s so small it’s really hard to learn on. And it’s really hard to have a passenger (girlfriend, dog, nephews). So, my second board needed to be bigger.
I don’t have a SUP foil board, so I came up with the idea of making a board I could use as a SUP foil board without the battery, electronics, and motor, or have a e-foil board that I could stand on while stationary.
I am also interested in inventing the new sport or SUP efoil surfing! Where you have a SUP paddle and just use the motor to get to and from the surf, and get on foil, then you use the paddle to catch waves with the prop folded!
We will see how this build progresses, but these are the ideas that guided the direction of this build.
New board is 5’2" long, 24" wide, and 5.5" thick. Buoyancy calculated to be 240lbs.
I owe it to my friend Keizo for making this board to my design specifications. Thanks Keizo! I can’t wait to help you build your e-foil board!
