Available for individuals, couples, and groups, the recently announced e-foil sessions are ideal for summer breaks, corporate bonding, and special occasions such as birthdays and bachelor parties.
Electric hydrofoil surfboards (e-foils) are water boards equipped with a mast and an additional hydrofoil wing, allowing the rider to glide above the water as if they are flying. Powered by a battery and propellor, e-foils do not require waves for propulsion, unlike traditional surfboards.
Producing minimal noise and no emissions, e-foiling is fast becoming a popular, environmentally friendly water sport. “The experience is like none other. With the electric-powered engine, e-foiling doesn’t pollute our beautiful waterways with oil or gas, and you don’t need a buddy to tow you,” says Foil NW.
The coaches work with GetFoil – a company that builds and assembles e-foils in the USA. GetFoil’s FOIL board boasts direct drive functionality and is made from hand-molded carbon fiber for optimized performance.
All of Foil NW’s lessons include the use of a life jacket and helmet. Wetsuit, drysuit, and action camera rentals are also available.
In addition to lessons, they also have supervised e-foil experiences. Riders who have passed a skills test can book a daytime or sunset tour to enjoy Portland’s lush scenery.
For customers who want to purchase a FOIL board, Foil NW offers demos that include board assembly and equipment testing tutorials. Contributions from lessons and demos can be applied to board purchases as well.
