2017 will definatly be remembered as the year of Electric foil board and electric surfboards
This year was all about E-Boards ( Concrete ones and Ones let u take your game on Sea Waves )
WHAT IS ELECTRIC FOIL OR ELECTRIC HYDROFOIL ANYWAYS ?
It is a combination of an electric surfboard with a hydrofoil. Because surfboard postion above the water ; the person surfs on smaller contact surface and therefore uses less electric power than Electric Surfboard to maintain the speed. Design of foil wings under the water, keeps the person above the water.
noun 1. a watercraft equipped with hydrofoils that uses an electric motor or motors for propulsion.
There are few options on the market now : The Jetfoiler and Lift foil ( before the clones come)

EvNerds conclusion :
While we respect the companies behind this and love products like this; We dont like the fact that none of this 2 companies state the exact voltage of battery, motor power, etc…..They lack even the normal info like max speed etc. But they dont lack the price tag. For us as product makers, thats not a nice move from a company. Besides, in like 10 minutes of GoogelDoodling u can find out what kind of battery should be uses , power of motor etc. So we dont get the price and Info, but we have all eyes on their boards and would like to ride them someday !
