THE EFOIL DOCTOR ... Repairs & Maintenance


Your Electric Hydrofoil (eFoil) 

Your powered Hydrofoil is a substantial investment and as such requires maintenance and care.
Electric Hydrofoils are a combination of the latest electronic technology, Bluetooth communication, Central Processing Units and Battery Management Systems. This is combined with a full Carbon Board, the best in the world.

Even if you’ve had months of trouble-free enjoyment, accidents do happen. Repairs will require specialized service. A mechanical check-up could potentially save you $1,000’s of dollars.

Qualified and Experienced Staff – Vasco Vellez

Vasco Vellez, our eFoil Doctor started Foiling in 2013.
He founded and operated eFoilgc in Australia in 2020, pioneering the introduction of Liftfoils and eFoiling right here on the Gold Coast.
In April 2018 Vasco received his first and still favourite board, a red 5’0 Sport aka Cherry Ferrari – she was the first board off the Liftfoils factory floor. This board it still used every day, 4,5 years later.. History
