Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg does it. Now you can do it too. Hydro-foiling that is. Lift Foils, a 2010-founded family-run company headquartered in Isabella, Puerto Rico, has just made it easier. The company’s latest Lift3 F, which debuted at the Miami International Boat Show in February, is the easiest board to ride to date. This means the world’s smallest personal watercraft is destined to become an even bigger favorite among water toys. While traditionally Lift Foils’ boards have been made of carbon fiber, the Lift3 F features a proprietary fiberglass blend crafted in-house by Lift’s engineers. It offers a stable ride that newcomers to the sport and casual riders can enjoy, and its lightweight makes it easy to transport while walking down the beach or even on a cruising or charter yacht.
“The Lift 3F has a lot of advantages for charter yachts. Crews can use them as an activity highlight and attract new guests. They can serve as a theme for the trip; ‘learn how to fly over water’. The eFoils offer an opportunity to explore new areas away from anchor. With a long-range of almost 20 miles, think about the beaches that can be explored. The Lift3 F is also a very durable construction to hold up to the abuse that one typically sees on a charter boat,” says Nick Leason, Lift Foils’ co-founder.
Leason adds, “The Lift eFoil has a wide range of uses in the Caribbean. They are perfect for exploring the coastline, surfing, and spending time with friends and family. We’ve seen people taking their snorkel gear to explore hard-to-access reefs. We’ve also seen people using it to go out and spearfish.”
The Lift3 F comes in two sizes. The 4’9” model offers a mix of performance and stability and is ideal for entry-level riders who want to grow their skills. The 5’4” model is stable enough for the whole family to ride, while still being compact. All Lift eFoils are powered by a lithium-ion battery, resulting in a virtually silent experience that allows riders to be one with nature as they glide across the water, without any harmful environmental impact. Prices start at $9,995 (Light battery) or $10,995 (Full range battery). A full battery can last up to 2 hours. liftfoils.com/lift3f/
