At TAKEOFF® Luxury Toys we were the first to bring this electric hydrofoil to Spain. It’s a product with optimal performance and that will allow you to conquer any nautical scenario.
At the end of the article, you will find out all about the Fliteboard eFoil, and how its settings can provide you with a great experience on the water. Keep reading!
What is Fliteboard?
Fliteboard is the Australian company that has developed this surfboard with an electric turbine and a hydrofoil. The latter gives the board enough lift to fly above the water.
Having spent many years competing in kitesurfing championships, its owner David Trewern identified the potential of powered flying and created the brand we know today.
Unlike other boards, the Fliteboard eFoil doesn’t need waves or wind to work. However, it’s recommended for use in calm waters or in a stable sea. It is a modern, fast and ecological board prepared for any aquatic surface.
This yacht toy is controlled via a wireless controller that works with Bluetooth technology. In addition, it has an exclusive app that allows you to modify more than 35 parameters and record the activity of the board.
How to configure your Fliteboard eFoil?
One of the most attractive features of the Fliteboard eFoil is that you can configure it however you want. This electric surfboard doesn’t have a single configuration, so the experience on the water is even more personal.
Next, we show you all the steps you must take into account when buying a Fliteboard. Are you ready?
1. Board choice
Flite boards are made of PVC and carbon fiber. It’s a very resistant product thanks to the fact that they have a layer of wood coating.
Also, the brand has three models for sale: Fliteboard, Fliteboard Pro and Fliteboard Air. Each offers different performance to meet specific user needs. Let’s know their differences!
The Fliteboard AIR is the lightest and easiest to use of all. It has a large capacity (175 liters), and you can even stand on it without having to move. It’s ideal for beginners.
In addition, despite its large volume, it’s easy to transport, configure and customize to suit your style.
The Fliteboard is the first hydrofoil model created by the brand in 2018, and has dimensions of 172 cm long by 71 cm wide.
It’s designed for intermediate level users (weighing from 50 kg to 90 kg), and has a capacity of 100 liters to operate for 90 minutes.
The Fliteboard PRO is perfect for veteran surfers who want to navigate calm waters at incredible speed.
Thanks to its design, this electric surfboard provides excellent control and agility. It has a capacity of 70 liters, but it can go about 25 km on a single battery charge.
2. Board finish
Only the Fliteboard and Fliteboard PRO come in three finish options. You can choose from an elegant hydrofoil in black, white or a wood look to match your style.
If you are a beginner and want the Fliteboard AIR, your only option is white, but you will have the opportunity to combine it with two different colors of eFoil.
3. eFoil mast length
If you have a Fliteboard or Fliteboard PRO, you should know that there are two types of eFoil and that they differ in size.
The standard measures 75 cm and is perfect for making turns and providing a smooth ride on the surface of the water.
By contrast, the other is 60cm and fits all Fliteboard models. This eFoil is perfect for beginners because it reduces the chances of falling off the electric surfboard. In addition, it’s designed for shallow water surfaces.
4. eFoil finish
The finish of the eFoil is also customizable, since you can choose between two colors: silver and black. In this way, you have the option of choosing the eFoil of the size and color you want.
5. Wing choice
The Fliteboard engineering team has created various types of wings to attach to your electric hydrofoil and sail at the speed you want. The types of wings available are:
If you want to buy an electric fliteboard to sail smoothly and stable, you need the cruiser wing. This accessory will help you make sharp turns at lower speeds.
On the other hand, if you are looking for more adrenaline on the board, you will need the flyer wing. This is ideal for exploring and making sharp turns at high speed, as it will allow you to go up to 45 km/h.
6. Flitecell choice
Depending on your needs, Fliteboard has created two types of batteries to ensure that everyone can have access to the experience they want. The well-known “Flitecell” are responsible for providing energy to these incredible toys.
The Flitecell Sport is ideal for experienced surfers who want to practice a new kind of extreme water sport.
This battery has a capacity of 30 AH/1,65 KWH, which allows the surfer to do more maneuvers at high speed.
On the contrary, the Flitecell Explore is designed so that the surfer can navigate on the surface for longer. It has a capacity of 40 AH/2,1 KWH and a duration of 90 minutes.
7. Flitecell charger
The Fliteboard removable battery is charged through a specific charger that comes in two models.
The first is the 20A fast charger, which charges the battery in 3 hours, and the other is the 25A premium charger, with a charging time of 2 hours.
