When we conceived the eFoil, we wanted to create an entirely new experience for watersports, using all of the modern technology we had seen applied to vehicles on the road, in the air, and in the water over the course of the last few years. At the same time, we wanted to make sure we could meet the performance and quality standards of our foil products. We knew it would be challenging but ultimately worth it.
Fast forward to 2018, and eFoils are shipping to excited customers who placed pre-orders, and we’re proud to be the first company to produce electronic hydrofoils in quantity and deliver them. The challenges to get there were serious – mastering battery tech, waterproofing, electronics integration, ensuring reliable Bluetooth connectivity, getting global certifications, developing an app… the list goes on. But after close to three years from our initial concept, our team in Puerto Rico and a network of partners worldwide have produced an experience we’re not just proud of, we are completely stoked to share with the world.
