Videos of electric hydrofoils around the world

Ha ha it will leapfrog through the air if the jet is out the board and not out the foil.


#42

Speaking of leap frogging, I’m looking forward to seeing someone jump, and successfully land, an efoil.


#43

Haha. I just hope I get to ride mine for 10m straight!

Jumping a heavy board is fun until you don’t anticipate its pull back down! I was towsurfing a lead-weighted tow board once and did a backside air. Going up was great and then the board changed direction and I didn’t anticipate how hard it would pull your legs back down (strapped in)…hello strained groin…queue physio on groin…

BUT

I cant deny it would be pretty epic to see a backflip on a efoil!

I remember seeing air chair riders doing crazy flips at Sea World many years ago. Check this video out…insane.


#46

Nice idea to intake water at nose section of foil and spray it out at the end of the board. Will work, tested it once with small tube/pipe but we needed massive power, drawing massive KW…:wink:

I tore a few muscles just watching that video! That must take some serious core strength!

Thanks, it’s based on a Hiorth v1 with a SSS56104 500Kv and 5:1 Neugart. Top speed 22 Knots with a basic 3d printed prop.
