VeFoil Motor Propulsion System

Help us design and build the next eFoil.

Our goal is to redesign the eFoil to make it safer, durable, low cost, simple to build, and easier to ride.

We are a crowdfunded project (Kickstarter), and partially crowd designed by backers of our project and other DIY forum community members.

VeFoil researches and develops with its supporters who Donate Funding to help further the project and bring it to life.

Continuous improvements in efficiency and safety.

Safety is our #1 concern and we know everyone wants to keep their fingers and toes we are developing a direct jet drive system with the impeller fully enclosed – Untouchable

The small, sleek design provides big thrust, and easier riding by allowing the board to glide through the water with very little drag vs a large prop or duct which acts like a brake as soon as you ease off on the throttle.

Manage speed, power, and map your adventures with an advanced motor controller and real-time data logger.

Electronics perform their best when kept cool, and that’s why we are integrating a custom competition grade ESC that can easily handle any current we demand – Overheating is no longer a concern!

With three types of throttle acceleration (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced), and with the additional throttle curves (Logarithmic, Linear, Exponential) you can customize your eFoil propulsion system to fit your skill level and riding style.

Custom Transmitter

Floating waterproof transmitter.

No one like the look and feel of riding their eFoil with the remote in a lunch bag, which is why we are developing a colorful, waterproof, floating remote control that is comfortable, sleek, and affordable.

With the additional second channel in the transmitter we plan to test additional add-on features in the future. Goals, to design and test a small gyro system that will instantly auto correct minor movements in the pitch of the board. One you are up on the foil activating this feature will allow your board to stabilize and hold a relatively level flight during straight runs and will also hold your altitude during turns. RC planes and airliners us gyros stabilization systems so why not try taking advantage of this to reduces our chance of porpoising the foil out of the water, and/or noise diving.

Compatible with your favorite board – Propulsion system attaches to most hydrofoils, any surfboard & SUP.

Hydrofoils, Surfboards, and SUP’s can be boring when the conditions aren’t just right,
BUT not anymore — With the VeFoil Propulsion System that mounts to any board with our low profile stick on mount, you don’t need the perfect conditions to seize the day!

VeFoil Propulsion Parts to be Designed and Built

The goal of VeFoil is to be a Crowd Funded and Crowd Designed Product.
This allows for an unlimited amount of skills, knowledge and funding to be amalgamated
to create an end product that exceeds users expectations.

Help support VeFoil in creating a unique extreme sport experience – Share your insight, donate,
or help build!

We are working with over 80 builders and are in touch with other builders in forums, so we have a good handle on what is working and what does not. Currently we are waiting on our next set of parts to arrive, which if all goes well our two new designs will generate the thrust required and well. After that we just focus on tweaking things for minor improvements.

Anything parts you buy now has a big risk of not working and you will waste $150-$800 on parts you’ll wish you didn’t buy, if you jump the gun and start building now. This is the whole point of VeFoil’s crowdfunding and design project… We move fast, everyone pitches in a little money and insight and we all get something great in the end.

At this point design only uses two small 3D printed parts with most parts being plug-n-play out of the box. We have been able to eliminate the use of 18 parts from our last design, which means, lower cost, less parts to break, and a smaller, ligher propulsion system.

If you want to go at this alone with a few others on the forums and spend the time and money trying to figure it out, we get that, its fund to build and create, heck that’s why we are doing it!

If you have been following our work for a while please understand that once our new parts arrive for our two new propulsion systems, the building videos and updates will no longer be public as this is only for those who support the VeFoil project. We should also mention that as a paid backer you will have the option to buy a VeFoil System a cost once we have a completed design and product as a THANK YOU for helping us along the journey to safe and affordable electric hydrofoiling.

Support Us Now During Development Stage and Get One At Cost In 2018!

Getting support and feedback from like-minded individuals from all around the world is priceless. If you help support us financially during our design and build phase now, we will offer the VeFoil system at cost to you once completed in 2018.

Are you interested in a DIY electric foil or surfboard?

The VeFoil team from Canada is developing an electric propulsion system, which can be mounted to Hydrofoils, Surfboards and SUP’s.

Electric hydrofoil surfboards look like one of the greatest transport methods ever.

DIGITAL TRENDS.com

It means that you no longer have to worry about the perfect conditions to use your existing hydrofoil, SUP or surfboard; simply find a patch of water, fire up the craft, and hover over it like Marty McFly in Back to the Future Part II. (Except that, unlike McFly’s hoverboard, this one works over water.)
