Greetings Efoil builders!
I’ve been lurking here for a couple of years. I started a new foil zone login linked with my youtube channel just recently. I spent the fall building my own version of an E-Foil board using a Cedar strip and fiberglass method used for Kayak and Canoe building. I painstakingly documented the whole process and just posted my first two videos on the build with the following links:
I look forward to constructive criticism on the build and guidance in selecting the propulsion system and battery components in time to launch the board this spring. I am offering the challenge to the group to suggest the safest and least complicated build components for a true beginner to E-foiling with basic cruising performance and ride time of up to 20-30 minutes.
Question: Is the Maytech E-Foil kit a legitimate option? (motor/ prop/ waterproof ESC/ remote for around $1200) If this setup is truly plug and play, I would consider the cost worth it to simplify build time and engineering.
I extend my sincere thanks to you all well in advance for your help and good advice.
