The motorization has arrived to the surf world with the eFoil, a surf table that includes an electric engine that propels it. This table was invented by the Australian David Trewern in 2016, a man that used to practice surf, windsurf and kitesurf, and decided to add an engine to their table. This gadget has arrived to United States and some European countries.
This is a good object to the surfing lovers, but the person that want to get one have to be careful, the engine permit it reach the 50 km/h, so the beaches that rent it used to give a previous class to teach how it works. The battery of the engine permit to use it between 60 and 90 minutes before charging it again.
This surf tables, that has been called “flying surf tables”, wears a submerged hydrofoil that allows it to raise the table from the water when it is going very fast, getting the feeling that it is flying on the water. The table can be controlled by remote control connected with the table by Bluetooth. Despite of it has an engine, it is electric so it is quiet allowing the driver to have a pleasant and noiseless ride.
The marks that have made this tables secured that its produce the same emotion than ride a common surf table and have the same stability than a paddle surf, so for the surf lovers have one of this new eFoil could be a good option. There are a lot of surf table brands that are selling this product, but it used to be so expensive depending on their speed and the brand, the cheaper are priced in over 5,000€ and the more expensive could cost more than 11,000€. The good thing is that in some beaches are renting this tables to experience it.
