What the FAQ?

Because safety and understanding are important!


How safe are Fliteboards?
Extremely! Check out the video below to see just some of the technology designed around your safety. Fliteboarding is an incredibly intuitive, safe and fun sport.
Do I have to go 45kmph to eFoil?

No. In fact, eFoiling is entirely possible and much more fun at slower speeds. Generally, eFoiling occurs at around 15-20 km/h. Our instructor is with you every step of the way and you can find your own comfortable speed.

What if I am not the best swimmer?

Our instructor is with you every step of the way. Life jackets are provided. Fliteboards are also very buoyant and are easily used as a flotation device when stationary.


Will I get exactly 1.5 hours ride time?
Ride time varies from person to person. Generally, depending upon the person’s body mass and skill level a rider can ride up to 1.5hours. Sometimes longer for experienced riders and people who are very light.
Do I have to bring anything along for the Flite?

No. Everything is provided. Only a towel, some sunblock, and a sense of adventure is needed!

Can I Take Photos or Videos?

No. You cannot bring any devices with you when learning to Flite Board. It is very important that your focus is on the learning and the actual experience of foiling. 

What if the weather is terrible?

At the instructors discretion, a reschedule of your Flite session will be offered due to bad weather. A member of our customer service team will be in touch to arrange a more suitable day and time.
