Looks so easy.

So what about this :

Any information on this ?

Do you think efoiling can be dangerous ?

Sweet, Piros. Separating the trigger from the speed control should be game changing! What I noticed when I demoed the Lift is that it was all about trigger modulation...

Frenchfoiling these guys are just the Aus distributors , so no more info. The trigger itself is 2 stage to start it . You roll the wheel back to 1 then pull trigger then roll the wheel to start it . I cannot understand how he got his fingers in their with power . No I don't think efoiling is dangerous and it's actually less chance getting hurt than normal surf foiling, plus it's a very fast & safe way to learn in calm water.

Don't forget Fliteboard is modular with a range of boards and wings (designed only for eFoiling) so you can start off with the Air (175 litres, super easy to ride - 2 hours ride time with new XL wing) and then swap the unibody motor system onto a Pro board (69 liters) add your Flyer wing, remove the duct and you'll be doing 48km/h!
We were the first to develop our patented cruise control system that separates the trigger from 20 gears via thumb press. So you don't need to use the trigger (but you can as an advanced rider). And of course Fliteboard has a number of unique features - GPS, App, safety features, and very high end construction, and of course... Designed, assembled and supported in Australia.

Definitely compare all three before you buy an eFoil then decide for yourself. But get on one of them because they are more fun than you think!

Cheers - David, (Fliteboard Founder).

Hi David

Can Fliteboards be used to power into swell using the motor but then switch the motor off to ride the swell? Sort of like a tow in but without the jetski?

Yours, Dom

I doubt it, they are way to heavy, but that will be when I buy one as that will be the game changer.
