Hydrofoil, Stories

Electronic Hydrofoil

I recently posted some video riding an Electric Hydrofoil.  Of course lots of peeps sent me questions like: “How is this possible?”,  “Where is your kite?”,  “Where is the boat pulling you?”

The answer is pretty simple, there is an carefully engineered electric engine mounted inside the board and running down the foil mast.  Right above the wings, there’s a torpedo type propeller that lets riders experience flight over almost any body of water at up to 25 mph, no waves or pull required.

My friend Ronald Tremblay is one of the first owner of this technology.  I felt really grateful & lucky that he let me spend a bunch of hours getting use to this new technology this past week.
