Videos of electric hydrofoils around the world

Hello, every week I see another video from a happy e-foiler. I propose to post here every new link you found.

Do you have another one?

I just found this one: https://youtu.be/kDv8TfkHSPM from @superlefax. Hard on that small board but looks like you are very close!


#4

And we have to include the very first electric hydrofoil project from 2008. The Evolo University Project, Naval Architecture at KTH in Stockholm.

A total classic. Amazing work! Guys, if you are reading this forum, please say hi and share more of this pioneering effort with us. That was almost a decade ago and here we start again… what happened? :smile:


#5

Yes that’s me :wink: I already stood for about 5 seconds until the ESC meltdown. The board has a lenght of 1,6m and is pretty narrow. Now it is getting bloody cold in Germany. I need two weeks for my second version of my system. The goal is to ride this year until flying.


#6

How about Solar boats?


#7

#8

Flying on lake VELENJE :stuck_out_tongue:

Hey, that’s me! Many thanks to my friend Dan who has been working on this board and is letting me test it for him.


#10

cool! Fun to see many DIY bords around the world.


#11

Still bummed that I lost my GoPro when I was riding a couple weeks ago with @Windchaser. I was curious where that happened and I just watched the video #15 again… sure thing, I can totally see it flying off, I must have knocked it off during the fall. RIP GoPro. Thx @tylerclark for getting me that floatie to keep a future cam afloat. We will see how that helps because I didn’t realize the cam was gone until after the session :smile:

#1 - Pre-crash, GoPro still attached on the nose

#2 - GoPro last seen flying off

#3 - Board aerial, camera gone


#12

Wow! How crazy you caught it on video! Time to break out the scuba gear!!!


#13

For those interested, I bought one of these for myself and @pacificmeister to prevent such tragedies again! lol

@Hiorth, great video, looks like you can foil in low speed, me like, du you know what speed you have on the video? :star_struck:


#17

No idea. Will bring my phone to check. its only about 1/3 throttle.


#18

Great results!! What kind of wing Do You use for this one?


#19

Another video:

Large SUP wing. really nice and stable. Kite foils are normally not designed to lift 20+kg boards and rider, with no pull upward (kite).
