The HydroFlyer Aptly named “The HydroFlyer” for its ability to fly over water at top speeds, the designers have incorporated several new riding and safety features that now make eFoiling safer and easier for all skill levels.
The HydroFlyer When asked what inspired him to create The HydroFlyer, McArthur said “I became obsessed with e-foiling several years ago, but I was hesitant to teach my friends and family after seeing some of the horrific accidents watching other people learn. I wanted to find a way to make eFoiling safer and more accessible to everyone, without taking away the feeling of speed and excitement of flying over water.“
The HydroFlyer “My background of riding dirt bikes and snowmobiles led me to adding handlebars. Adding four points of contact makes eFoiling easier to learn and balance. This enables a safer learning curve, more control, and a faster ride. This design of The HydroFlyer is easier to learn for beginners, while also allowing advanced riders to perform more extreme maneuvers. There’s only upside to this improved layout.“
The HydroFlyer The designers at Unifoil Hydrofoils were tasked with designing “the elevation” and underbelly. Having to adjust for the added speed and force of an electric motor, while minimizing the drag and reducing strain on the battery was a task, and they were more than up for the challenge.
The HydroFlyer Matthew O`Rourke, Unifoil´s global sales manager made this comment, “We are excited after so many years of R & D to finally bring The HydroFlyer to market. With the addition of our patent-pending detachable handlebars, stabilized board, and safety foil features, we have reduced the eFoil learning curve from several days, down to under 15 minutes. It’s a game-changer, but we are not done yet. In the coming months, we will be releasing more board and wing models to suit riders of all sizes and skill levels.”
The HydroFlyer How Does the HydroFlyer Work?
The HydroFlyer is like riding a hoverboard, a jet ski, a surfboard, and flying all in one. With speed settings that range from mild to wild, the HydroFlyer was designed for beginners and professional thrill-seekers alike. It’s the perfect balance of speed, excitement, usability, and safety.
The HydroFlyer The HydroFlyer is powered by a supercharged lithium-ion battery that lasts for 2 hours of riding time at speeds of up to 35 mph before a recharge is needed. The battery can be recharged using a standard A/C power outlet, with recharging taking around two hours.
The HydroFlyer The HydroFlyer eFoil is a 100% electric carbon fiber craft, which means it requires no fuel, creates no fumes or pollution, and requires no maintenance.
The HydroFlyer The HydroFlyer uses a wireless controller built into the handlebars to control the speed, the controller feeds a signal to the onboard computer to power on the silent motor built into the waterproof mast. Once the rider reaches a speed of around 4 knots, the power of lift and thrust begins to work its magic and the foil comes out of the water.
The HydroFlyer “That’s when it feels like flying. There truly is no feeling in the world quite like it. It’s environmentally friendly, no gas, no fumes, no wake, no noise, and requires no towing or trailers. The HydroFlyer has solved many of the issues facing the traditional watercraft such as a boat or jet ski.“
