Fliteboard: eFoil Surfing
Surfing? So 1960s. Standup paddling boarding? Very 2020. Fliteboards...now we're talking.
Foilboards are surfboards with a piece of hydrofoil attached to the bottom, allowing the foiler to zoom along at serious speed by entering and exiting the water.
Byron Bay-based company Fliteboard make eFoils: Foilboards, but electric. And fast. And awesome.
It means you can surf regardless of wind or swell.
The board has a motor beneath the surface of the water, and speed is controlled by a wireless handheld Bluetooth remote, a somewhat dangerous feature in the hands of a madman.
Check the video below for an explanation of this absolutely wild piece of electro-powered awesomeness. And ah, if anyone from Fliteboard happens to see this, I'd um, be happy to test one out...
