I say bravo to Anthony for being pioneer in France (first owner of an eFoil from Takuma, French brand) and for his cool video. :clap3: For sure we are now many guys wanting to test such a board. :D

Carving all year long, snow or water, that's perfect life! :silly:

@Anthony: you learned in 2 hours only, right? At maximum speed of 35 km/h, is it possible to make short turns and incline a lot?

This subject makes me think to another one:
Inspiring video: SUP foiling, performance with rotation technique

Hi Patrice

Sorry to answer so late here but I was more on the French forum where the post raised some interest.

But let me answer here for our not French speaking friends.

Quickly you can stand on the board and make short uncontrolled flight.... but took a bit longer for stable and controlled fly. I would say around 3h.

I'm still enjoying this stuff a lot :bravo: and still on the learning curve...

Hello Anthony,

Could you progress recently? Carving more and more? :twisted:
And what is the autonomy of the battery?

If you dont like pumping, then with small wind you can skate-wing
