Let’s get started with the best electric hydrofoils first!
Top 5 Electric Hydrofoils – efoils
Number 5 – Pwrfoil
Pwrfoil is a promising french foil by Redwoodpaddle
The electric foil is separated from the board, which will allow the board to be adapted according to its weight, but also the possibility of changing boards according to the evolution of one’s own practice. A beginner will easily start with a large inflatable board, for example, but will be able to move on to a small rigid board overtime for more maneuverability.
Number 4 – e-Takuma efoil
Takuma efoil is a new high quality and affordable foil from Takuma
Concept, a famous French brand that is producing traditional hydrofoils and wings. It features a modular system and should let you ride up to 75 minutes, gliding at a speed of 35 km/hour.
Number 3 – Flying rodeo
An exciting efoil from Slovenia, the flying rodeo foil was developed by the talented
engineer David. We had a chance to meet David and his team and test the board last year, so make sure to check our full video review. The board should be lightweight, sturdy, and provide over 1 hour of exciting foiling. Unfortunately, the board is custom made so it will ship only in small amounts.
Number 2 – Liftfoils
Liftfoils is one of the oldest original electric hydrofoils which was first to actually ship it. Lift is a product created by Nick Leason and his team from Puerto Rico. Currently, Lift is one of the market leaders shipping a big amount of high-quality efoils around the world and developing new models of wings and styles. You can watch a detailed video review on our channel to learn more about this exciting product.
