hello guys, I decided today to build something completely new. first the question what are my wishes? : As before, I want to have an e-foil with a fast wing and 80 cm mast and a slow beginner wing with 65 cm mast. I already have that with my board. I would also like a board for the beginner wing that has about 160 liters of buoyancy and is very wide and longer than the base board. but I don’t want to build a new board because the electronics etc. is then used extra. what is the solution? quite simply I build molded parts that are precisely molded on the base board. you can imagine it like this: you pull a thick jacket over another jacket. Since I work a lot with carbon and GRP as well as a mold maker for rigid foam, this is a child’s game. The new shell with a floating body is placed over the base board from the front. and holds with 2 velcro strips. so that’s now the 2 variant. what is the 3 variant? I would also like to use the board to sit comfortably on the lake like driving a boat and sometimes standing like a power surfboard just slowly. I am building a motor unit which, like the mast with wing , is simply screwed to the same adapter on the board. for the board, the additional cover is used as for variant 2. there is also another variant, the “rear”, which is then also molded onto the basis board and is pluggable. the important thing is that this tail ends like a kayak. so i have even more buoyancy and save electricity when driving. I don’t use foil here.
Conclusion: I then have 3 different concepts: foil for speed, foil for beginners, e-boot & e-surfboard (slow)
for this i use for all concepts of the base board with all electronics and battery. there is also an additional motor for the 65 cm mast. and 1 additional motor for the boat concept. I will add a sketch of what it looks like soon. Best regards
