What is E-Foiling?
Election foil boarding is a battery-powered way to appreciate the beauty of Maui from the water. You pilot your own e-foil Fliteboard with a handheld Bluetooth remote control.
The trigger allows the lithium-ion battery to spin the propeller that is at the bottom of the mast. Speed is controlled by the ‘+’ and ‘-’ buttons on the remote control. Once at higher speeds, your board will start to lift off of the water’s surface and you will start foiling aka flying. Once your board is off of the water’s surface you will no longer feel the water or be inhibited by the water currents. You can foil while on your feet, knees, bottom, or even your stomach, which makes it an activity that everyone can enjoy!
