After a friend sent me a video from an e-foil rental in Spain, I was convinced: “I can build this myself!”
With loads of free time due to corona, and it being winter so no other outdoor sports, here are my first plans… I don’t need to end up with a high performance board, as long as it foils and I can surf it ill already be happy…
Maytech kit with motor(MTI65162-SF), remote, 300A esc, ubec and pump
2X Turnigy High Capacity 20000mAh 6S 12C Lipo Pack w/XT90
Shaping one myself out of (probably XPS) foam and glassing it with fiberglass and epoxy. The mockup is below. It has a volume of about 105L, but that will probably be reduced a little after shaping and making cutouts.
Any suggestions about glassing shedule? which mat weights and how many layers?

So, first thoughts from more experienced people? Any bets whether this can work out?
