November eFoil Gathering

We are planning a hydroflight competition event in the UAE the first week of November this year.

What are the thoughts of doing a electric foil meetup/gathering/event at the same time? We are pretty confident of getting the permissions, waterway is part of the venue, conditions are good. The UAE has hosted several other such events in the past and it is an ideal audience and location for something new.

The initial idea would be more of an efoil gathering than a competition, although it might be interesting to have some informal metric, timed slalom gates or similar.

Let’s discuss if there is interest and the timing is good.


Ill come if Emirates invites us : )

This is as good as we can do for now, I would not expect a personal invitation just yet in the dawn of this future sport:grin:. According to the officially stamped letter of permission, (and this is 100% real and significant):

“We are glad to inform you that we have received the approval of His Highness Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed bin Sultan Al Qassimi, Crown Prince, Deputy Ruler of Sharjah and Chairman of the Executive Council of Sharjah, to hold the championship under the patronage of His Highness”


Why not, could be great, and also good season for foiling in uae

I will definitely come what an awesome idea

Nice idea but isnt it very hard to travel with the batteries required for the efoil? Maybe emirates can make an exception?
