Efoil convertibile in Esurf

Postby Brucecreations » Thu Apr 02, 2020 7:48 pm

Hi everyone, I would like to show you my interpretation of the concept of E foil.
I build an electric jetsurf that is convertible to an Efoil simply unscrewing 4 screw.
For the wings profile I choose a box wing because I'm loving it. :D

This is the results:

Congratulations. Two questions though:
1- At startup, is the board self priming ? Is the electric engine OK to vacuum all this water along the mast to build speed up ?
2- What's the max speed you've reached so far in jetsurf AND in jetfoil version ?

Yes, there are no problems. When you start the jet is submerged.
2- What's the max speed you've reached so far in jetsurf AND in jetfoil version ?
It's difficult give you an answer because of I tried only three times and without gps. I planned some dedicate trials but for the moment.... isn't allowed :cry:
If I have to judge with my feelings I could say around 16-18 knot in both versions. But I'm sure that 20-24 are feasible.
What I disliked is the accelerations, isn't so good I'm wondering so I'm doing some change.... :evil:
