i know the wavejet sound very well even with pretend paddling I know what is going on lol A few surfers around here with them - they absolutely kill it when there is a really bad sweep to paddle against!

you have to wonder how little extra power is needed on a sup for just assisted paddling up on teh foil - being that batteriesa are so heavy - - hmm actually you will need a long paddle!

So when you fell at the beginning is it just because you were getting used to the throttle?

I assume you already kite foil?

Affirmative and one more factor as I am a kitefoiler - that was a new sensation to me not to be connected to anything.
Strange in first minutes. Does not help!

They tested out the Lift eFoils on this vlog the other day:



The girl riding it with her dog on board 9:26 is pretty impressive. I don't think she has any foil experience at all.
