So whether you’re dubious about this concept or you really see it working for you …its innovative !
E-foils are great …but the whole unit is heavy and after your battery is run flat …you cant exactly use the board for anything else
Enter the Foil Assist concept of Foil DriveA retro-fit electric paddle assistance kit for your existing hydrofoil surf board gear!
The intended uses are:
SUP Surfing | Down Winding | Wing Dinging.
Foil Drive Assist is just that, it provides paddle assistance to the rider. It is not a flat water e-foil.
The primary objective is a light weight, minimalistic, low drag design that is as least obtrusive to the amazing feeling of foiling.
3kg | 21kg thrust | 10 min Install | 1-2hr Surf Time* depending on throttle usage
Wireless throttle control can be handheld ,mounted to SUP paddle or wind handle or boom.
The mounts come in both left and right hand specification, indicating which side of the board you paddle blade goes into the water. Generally, natural stance requires a "right" and goofy stance needs a "left".
Single tool installation with no modification to your existing gear
Removable in less than 5 mins to use your gear for other disciplines
- Wing ding riders are using their Foil Drive Assist on low wind days where there isn't enough power in the wing to get their board out of the water but there is enough to keep on foil. Using the controller on the included wrist lanyard, use full power to get up on foil, then wing ding as usual.
- Down wind riders are loving motoring/paddling that bit further offshore to line up longer runs! With added thrust you can run smaller, faster wings and link sections, resulting in longer rides. If the conditions change, you’ve also got the added of peace of mind knowing you don't have to manually paddle all the way back to shore.
Foil Drive Assist is not designed to be used on a Prone or Tow style, low volume Foil Boards. Due to the wireless connection, the box must remain above the waterline during useage Therefore SUP and Wing Boards are much better suited.
