Once you are stable on the board, your next move is to try to ’pop up’
Start-Up Difficulty: Getting the eFoil board up and running smoothly can be tricky. Managing the throttle and weight distribution correctly to lift the eFoil out of the water without nosediving or rising too quickly can be challenging.
Balancing Act: Start by gently engaging the throttle to begin moving forward slowly. Keep your weight centered on the board. Gradually shift your weight forward by leaning slightly forward. This helps begin planning. Avoid sudden or aggressive movements, as they can cause the board to nosedive.
Maintain Speed and Lift:
As you increase speed, continue to lean slightly forward to maintain lift on the foil.
If the board starts to nosedive, reduce the throttle and shift your weight backward lightly to level it.
Conversely, if the board rises too quickly, reduce the throttle and shift your weight forward.
Practice, Practice, Practice:
Expect that your first attempts might be a bit wobbly. Practice is key to mastering the balance and control needed for smooth eFoiling.
Gradually increase your speed and experiment with weight distribution to find the sweet spot where the foil maintains a steady lift.
Turning and Maneuvering:
Once you’re comfortable with straight-line riding, practice turning and maneuvering by gently shifting your weight to one side while using the remote control to adjust power.
Be Patient and Persistent:
Learning to eFoil takes time and persistence. Don’t get discouraged by initial challenges. With practice, you’ll improve your skills and confidence.
