Electric hydrofoil surfboards are clean alternatives to jet skis. Electric hydrofoils generate no noise, wake or emissions in comparison. Electric hydrofoil (e-Foil) boards are fun to ride and have low environmental impact. Due to the electric power source they are not dependent on weather conditions how sailing, wind surfing and kite surfing are. Commercial implementations of electric hydrofoils are expensive. The goal of this project is to construct a electric hydrofoil at a reasonable price point. Our approach involves building analysis software to provide data-driven design insights and to build o of the work of the online DIY electric hydrofoil community (
