 The eFoiling summer is coming!

The weather is improving, so, naturally, many people are heading toward the water. We offer the water sports sensation of the moment: an eFoil clinic!

During an eFoil clinic, you will learn to experience the magic of eFoiling. Efoiling may seem difficult at first, but it is surprisingly easy. It is very accessible, and almost anyone can do it within the hour. An eFoil lesson is an ideal activity for you, your friends, family, or colleagues to have lots of fun. 

The biggest bonus? You get to know a new skill in the process!

How does this training work?

We at Flying Fish eFoils have recently added a 3-week eFoil group training. After this training, you will be a pro eFoiler. 

The first lesson will serve as an introduction to the board and your first attempts to stand. You learn to get up and stay upright. This lesson also acts as a theory lesson. You receive a detailed explanation of the best eFoil techniques, information about the material, the possible dangers and how to avoid them. 

The second lesson is about getting out of the water, building confidence and surfing the eFoil. In this lesson, you will experience the feeling of flying over the water! You will learn how to gain speed safely and stay in the air. Sharp, good turning and steering is also taught here.

The third and final lesson aims to improve and perfect your eFoil skills. When The eFoil clinic is over, you will receive a unique eFoil certificate. This certificate allows you to eFoil at all Flying Fish schools in the Netherlands for a reduced price. An eFoil clinic is suitable if you want to become the best in eFoiling.

We want your first experience with an eFoil to feel magical, so how do we go about that? 

Let’s start by picking a location. We have schools all over the Netherlands. Take your pick! You can choose from Amsterdam Nieuwe Meer, Amsterdam IJburg, Utrecht, Loosdrecht, Heeg, Alkmaar or Rotterdam. One of our experienced instructors will be waiting for you there. Pick the right size wetsuit, and let’s hit the water. Your instructor will help you get to know your board and teach you the proper techniques of eFoiling. 

You can finally try and eFoil on your own. The sun is shining, and the water feels good while you try the board while laying on your stomach to get the feel of your board. The next step is your instructor explaining to you how to balance on the board and stay standing. You learn how to gain momentum and lift yourself out of the water. Once you’re standing and able to lift yourself out of the water, you learn how to make turns. By the end of your eFoil session, you may realize your legs have become sore, don’t worry. It means you were doing it right. 

After your lesson, it’s time to relax by the water and have a beer. Maybe even plan your next session?

Why should you get a Waydoo eFoil? — Flying Fish 24/03/2022

 

 

We at flying fish are proud to be part of Waydoo’s journey, bringing revolutionary eFoil technology to the masses. The team here is so enthusiastic about Waydoo’s Flyer one eFoil, and we want to talk about why you should be too. Getting your first eFoil may seem daunting, but the Flyer One won’t break the bank compared to some of our competitors. 

 

Our EPP model starts at €6.399,00 and is considered the perfect entry-level eFoil for anybody, but even veterans would have a great time flying over the water on this state of the art eFoil. The Flyer One EPP board is made from high-density expanded polypropylene foam.

The aluminium alloy frame is embedded inside to give the board more rigidity. It is easy to clean and maintain, and the dampening properties of the foam material reduce the risks of injuries from body-board contact.

 

The Waydoo Flyer One’s brother is the carbon model. It has a stunning carbon fibre design that gives it a more eye-catching and premium look. The solid carbon fibre build makes the board perfect for high-speed gliding and performing cool tricks and manoeuvres. Our premium Carbon model starts at €7.599,00 and has been designed for people ready to get serious about e-foiling.

 

Both models have the same internals with a battery that lasts up to 85 minutes, and a top speed of 35kph allows for long and thrilling rides. The plug-and-play design allows for fast charging (only 2 hours for a full charge), so you’re back on the water in no time. Waydoo’s custom application allows you to track your rides and see your performance on the water. Your boards’ firmware updates will be executed via a separate Waydoo application.

The boards have a modular design, so transport is super easy! The total weight is under 28 kilos, so don’t worry about being out of breath when you reach the water.

 

Flying Fish Foils is excited to be the head of European distribution for Waydoo eFoil boards. We have access to all the parts for your Waydoo eFoil and can guarantee quick delivery. Our sales process is quick and easy, so don’t be afraid to jump in! Flying Fish Foils offers a great after-sales service. If any problems occur with your new Waydoo eFoil we are more than happy to help you out.

It produces no gas, no fumes, no wake, no sound, and no pollution. It is easy because you can hold tight on the handlebars in front. The Hydroflyer uses a Bluetooth controller attached to the handlebars to control the speed. Once the rider reaches a speed of around 3-4 knots, the Hydroflyer starts to lift out of the water.

What are the technical specifications of the Hydroflyer?
The total weight of the Hydroflyer is between 29 and 35 kilograms and is fully electric. The total ride time of a Hydroflyer is 120 minutes and has a range of 40 kilometres with a top speed of 55 kilometres per hour. The Hydroflyer only takes 3 hours to recharge.

 The best places for e-foiling in Belgium — Sam 21/02/3022

Most Belgians probably have no idea what the hell you’re talking about when you mention efoiling, but a growing number of people have begun the conversation, and interest is rising quickly.  

Social media is full of videos of efoils and similar water sport activities, and of course, Belgians want a taste!

Where can we go efoiling in Belgium? 

Honestly, nowhere? There are very few opportunities for efoiling in Belgium right now, but an abundance of awesome locations to make it happen. 

Where should efoils be introduced in Belgium? 

Ostend

Ostend is one of the most famous surfing spots in Belgium. This is a big one because it has a ton of cool spots to hit the water, but also allows for people of all skill levels to join in on the fun. There are a few spots with a consistent beach break, where the waves break from left and right. 

Knokke-Heist

The only spot in Belgium that offers some efoiling at a limited capacity is situated in this coastal city in the West of Flanders. This is another famous surfing spot and also a great place for beginners. The waters are calmer here and could serve as a great spot to learn to use your efoil once we get them there. 

 When will we get efoils in Belgium?

We at Flying Fish Foils are busy looking for opportunities to introduce efoiling in Belgium and other neighbouring countries. Our schools in the Netherlands have been a massive success, and interest in efoils and learning how to ride them is rising steeply. 

So, maybe soon we will see you on one of our Waydoo Flyer One’s or the Hydroflyer in Belgium.

Light Festival Amsterdam – Flying Fish 17/01/2022
Efoil in Amsterdam

It was a special sight last week: a luminous, floating UFO flew over the Amsterdam canals past the artworks of the Amsterdam Light Festival. It turned out to be a stunt of Flying Fish eFoils by Titus Vriend, who travelled the route on his eFoil under these cold conditions.

With temperatures below five degrees and with waterproof LED lighting taped to his eFoil, Titus braved the cold. The aim was to generate attention for the new sport of eFoiling, but also for the Amsterdam Light Festival. “Every year I am very impressed with the festival, so to see the artworks on an eFoil was special,” said Titus. The Amsterdam company Flying Fish eFoils has been the largest eFoil platform in Europe for three years now. The company name already describes it; An eFoil is an electric surfboard that comes out of the water through an innovative fin, a so-called foil. This allows you to fly over the water, as it were with the imposing artworks of the Amsterdam Light Festival, this resulted in futuristic images.

Would you like to learn how to eFoil in Amsterdam? Flying Fish eFoils offers group lessons, private lessons, team events and more. Anyone can efoilen! Experience shows that you can get up and running within half an hour. Together with our instructors, we make sure the lessons are safe and an unforgettable experience. Book a lesson through our site and who knows, you too may be flying over the canals.
