All About Flite E-Foil Boards
To someone who hasn’t seen an E-Foil board before, they may think they are witnessing something supernatural. They look like they are defying gravity floating above the water on what looks like a surfboard zooming by. Underneath the water however, is a high powered but small motor that propels the E-Foil board while keeping it balanced. A foil board or a hydrofoil board is when a hydrofoil is attached under a board that extends the board above the water. As soon as the board builds up enough speed, the hydrofoil will naturally start to lift the board out of the water. The increased speed will create a natural lift of the front wing like an airplane taking off the runway. An E-Foil board works in the same way but it is also powered by an electric battery to go faster and on longer rides. The Flite controller is strapped securely around your wrist to control the power and your ride. The Flite E-Foil board is the top of the line E-Foil board on the market.
