SAFETY & FUN FIRST
All students are fitted with a radio helmet and a life vest , so your coach is always in constant contact with you and you feel safe and confident out on the water.
We provide all students with a radio helmet so that your coach is in constant contact with you. You will be fitted with a life jacket and whistle. Most importantly you will have the safest available eFoil equipment. And step by step instruction starting off with a comprehensive land lesson. Followed by safe step by step instruction out on the water. All our instructors are CPR, AED, and first-aid certified, and trained in ocean safety and boating safety.
Stage One: Practice on Land
Your land lesson begins with balance board and remote / safety practice. This gives you a real feel of being on an e foil and helps to accelerate your e foiling progression.
EFoil lessons begin with a comprehension land lesson and safety class.
Where you learn on our balance board “eFoil simulator” how to control your center of gravity and maneuver the eFoil in the 3 riding positions: belly down, knee riding, and standing. During this time we also teach you how to operate the bluetooth eFoil remote and how to safely fall away from the board if you fall. We review water safety and boating safety guidelines and fit you with your CGA approved life vest and radio helmet so your coach is always in constant contact with you.
Stage Two: Get in the Water
Now you practice on water in 2 of the 3 riding positions and do some Knee ride e surfing and e foiling!
Your water time begins when you go out on the water and stops when you take breaks on land to rest and get further land training between runs. If you book 30, 60, or 90 min of water time we guarantee you will get what you pay for. Practice on water begins with you doing belly rides and practicing using the remote, turning the board, doing some emergency stops. Next we get you to practice some knee riding turns and get you to accelerate to eFoiling speed. At eFoiling speed we have you shift your center of gravity back and do a short knee eFoil ride before moving the board back down to the water.
Stage Three: Stand on the Water
Now you practice, your pop up and 3rd riding position standing. E surfing with your board on the water.
Your next step in the progression is a slow pop-up to your standing position. Just like we practiced on the balance board eFoil simulator, you slowly get to your feet and do some board on water eSurfing. You will practice turns in both directions and we will help you find your proper stance on the board.
You will practice turns in both directions and we will help you find your proper stance on the board. So far, all our students are able to get to their feet and ride the boards around in the ‘board on the water’ position from our youngest 13 year olds to our seniors as old as 76. This step is a real joy and will be the longest ride you have ever done standing on top of the water!
Stage Four: Fly Over Water
Your final step in e foil lessons is to start e foiling with small touch and go foil rides progressing into long extended e foil rides !
After you have mastered maneuvering your board on the water and controlling your speed. We progress into touch and go foiling. Just like we practiced on the balance board eFoil simulator. You will slowly shift your center of gravity back and your board will slowly rise up out of the water onto the eFoiling position ! Once you have mastered touch and go foiling. We will begin practicing long sustained eFoil rides ! Most of our students are able to do small stable eFoil rides by the end of their first 30 min lesson. Some students on their first day will begin long sustained eFoil rides while others will get those long extended eFoil rides on their second day of lessons. It’s most important to learn at your own speed and skill level. Have fun and be safe!
After you have mastered the e foil you’re ready to begin your training in all the other great foiling activities.
