The Lift eFoil is a motorized hydrofoil unlike anything we’ve ever seen before. The hydrofoil allows you to glide effortlessly above the waves. By surfing above the waves instead of right on top you gain an incredible amount of stability.
The hydrofoil design has existed for decades as a favorite of watermen in Hawaii. A typical hydrofoil design allows the surfer to ride waves with more stability. Or, it allows them to surf long distances with less effort than paddling. The Lift eFoil has an attached motor powered by a waterproof lithium battery.
The Lift eFoil is currently available for pre-order on their website. If you have $12,000 to spend on a new toy then this is what you’ve been looking for. You can cruise along the water at speeds of up to 25 mph, and the entire outfit only weighs 30 pounds.
As the rider, you will control the motorized hydrofoil’s speed using a handheld wireless controller. Pull the throttle all the way down and you’ll speed up to 25 mph in no time. The wireless controller also displays data like remaining battery life. There’s an automatic kill switch that shuts the Lift eFoil off if the controller falls underwater (it’s waterproof) or is 10-feet away from the hydrofoil.
