What is Gidrofoil (Hydrofoil)Gidrofoil is nothing more than a hydrofoil. The concept of hydrofoil is not new, more than a hundred years ago, hydrofoils tried to install on boats and yachts. The results of such experiments turned out to be quite impressive; we managed to achieve unprecedented speeds and high stability of the courts at that time. Since then, gidrofoyly try to attach to everything that moves through the water, including on surfboards, and in our days, and on surfboards with an electric motor. Structurally, the classic hydrofoil is very simple, it consists of a long keel and fins attached to it, one carrying, the other stabilizing. Materials use the most different, from plywood to carbon fiber. But the electro-foil is not so simple. Let’s try to figure out how everything works, whether a big interest in such boards is justified and what is on the market today.
Особенности E-FoilThe difference from the classic foil surf only in the presence of an electric motor and battery pack, otherwise the principle is the same. Electro-surf with a hydrofoil is driven by a propeller-type motor. On moto boards without hydrofoil, water-pumps are installed more often. Water jet type allows you to achieve greater speed. For an electro-surf with a hydrofoil, a speed of 20–40 km / h is considered normal, and boards on a jet-cracker easily accelerate to 50–60 km / h. However, do not rush to draw conclusions. The electro-foil perfectly shows itself at low speeds and even 40 km / h does not seem to be enough, do not forget that the rider is about a meter above the surface of the water during skiing. The hydrofoil provides greater stability, but no one is immune from falls, and now imagine what it would be like to fall from a meter height into the water at a speed of 40 km / h or more. Electro-surf with a hydrofoil is more suitable for walking with the wind, but not for racing. Other qualities of hydrofoil compensate for relatively low speed, for example, stability. On a board with a wing, the rider feels equally comfortable both on large waves, and with complete calm and even strong river flow. A regular motorcycle board transmits all vibrations from the water surface, thus requiring a certain skill and constant attention from the user. Electro-foil allows you to relax and enjoy a walk, hovering above the water. You can ride almost anywhere, the main thing is to be sure that there is an adequate supply of depth. Entry into the water with a hydrofoil differs from the start of riding on a conventional electric board. The rider needs to go to a sufficient depth, holding the board with one hand and the other wing. Accordingly, completing the ride, you have to get off the board in advance. As for the rest, surfing on a hydrofoil is just as exciting as riding an ordinary electro-surf.
РыE-Foil todayOn the Internet you can find dozens of projects one way or another connected with hydrofoils. Most of which are experimental projects of enthusiasts, so to speak, do it yourself. This is due to the great interest in such electro-surfing and the novelty of this sport. The greatest interest is caused by commercial projects, in which not only experienced surfers take part, but also engineers, and the best materials and equipment are used. To date, there are two companies that are ready to offer electro surfing with a hydrofoil, worthy of the attention of a wide audience. It’s about company products. Lift & Flite
Flite Electric SurfThe Australian company Flite relies on customization, apparently to attract as many surfers as possible. As it is known, the style and convenience of skiing depends on the board, so Flite in 2018 presented three electro-surfers with hydrofoil, under the Fliteboard brand. First of all, the differences are noticeable in size and shape of the board itself.. Стандартная версия электро-сёрфа Fliteboard Suitable for beginners and experienced riders. The board is wide enough to easily stand on its feet, even at low speed. Its dimensions are 172 cm long and 72 cm wide. Версия Fliteboard Pro the smallest and most maneuverable of the three. This model of electro-surfing is designed for experienced riders, because keep balance, the more difficult the smaller the board. Its dimensions are 152 cm long and 62 cm wide. Fliteboard Air has an inflatable body and this is significantly different from other models Fliteboard. This electric power is great for family recreation and training. The ability to release air makes this model the most compact during transport. Its dimensions are 198cm long and 76cm wide. All three models are equipped with the same electric brushless motors. This engine allows you to accelerate to 40 km / h. When buying, you can choose one of two batteries, FLITE CELL SPORT or FLITE CELL EXPLORE. They differ in capacity, power and weight.
