The choice of putting a surfboard up top is more a matter of convention than necessity, since it won’t actually touch the water for more than a few seconds: once the Jetfoiler’s up to speed, that surfboard will be several feet above water. Following up on their Airfoiler motorized trimaran concept, the Jetfoiler e-foil puts an electric motor and hydrofoil wing under water to lift the board above the surface of the water and reduce drag. It’s evidently not depend on wind or waves so anyone can surf on one, and its low profile design cuts through water effortlessly. No word on availability just yet, though, so sign up to their newsletter to keep updated.
