Learning to eFoil is very safe. During a lesson, we require all participants to wear a lifejacket and helmet, take a safety briefing at the start of each lesson, and always will have an instructor in a boat by your side. You’ll learn how to fall properly into the water as needed, to let go of the throttle, and simply swim back to the board, climb on, and keep going! Conquering the eFoil is also the safest way to learn how to fly in a hydrofoil.
Incremental Lesson Plan – We have developed a step-by-step lesson program that we coach you through until you attain flight! Our goal is to help you build a strong base and confidence, as well as minimize crashing.
If you are a brand new eFoiler, we’ll start by teaching you how to control the throttle and have you ride around on the board on your stomach. When you’re comfortable riding around on your stomach, you’ll move to your knees and ride around like that. Once your confident on your knees, we’ll get you to your feet with your hands still on the board for stability (This is also known as the Table Top pose). Then you’ll move to taking your hands off the board, standing tall while riding with the board still in the water. The next stage is to break the board free and begin getting short flights. Finally, we teach you how to fly in a sustained and relaxed manner, as well as to execute turns on the board.
We’ll have your equipment, but you may want to bring:
