The amount of time we spend on the water has increased thanks to Hydrofoiling technology, also known as Foiling. Previously unaccessible / unsurfable waves are now within everyone’s reach.
Existing watersports also evolved rapidly into new disciplines such as:
The direct progression from surfing where you paddle onto a wave and pop onto the board, just like surfing. Then the Surfer guides the board just above the surface and rides the undercurrent, not necessarily the face. Half a foot waves can produce rides up to 1km. A new avenue is emmerging called Downwind Prone Foiling .. to ride endless open swell. n
A Foil board travels over the surface propelled by a kite. This sport combines Kitesurfing and Hydrofoiling.
Adding a Kite-style Wing and removing the need for a bar and lines quickly evolved to the fastest emmerging and most popular of all Foiling sports currently.

The next stage in evolution was to motorize Foiling. Nicholas Leason created the eFoil by adding a 48v battery, an ESC and remote control. His company LIFTFOILS is the World's leader in innovation and product manufacture. I am proud to say I own the first eFoil that came out of the factory in April 1018.
My name is Vasco Vellez. I have been Hydrofoiling since October 2013 and love it with a passion. I started Kitefoiling way before anyone on the Gold Coast, then SUP Foil and now Wingfoil as well. My first eFoil, model 5'0 Sport, is my pride and joy. Handcrafted by Nicholas Leason from Liftfoils.com, the undisputable inventor of eFoiling, commissioned with a custom metalic one-of-a-kind paint job that earned its name "Cherry Ferrari" - It has never failed me. Laird Hamilton, Kai Lenny and I were on the VIP list so we received our boards on the last week of April 2018. The Cherry was the first eFoil in Australia and is still my wave go-to board of choice.
