Yes, thank you. It was an omission on the drawing.
I had cabratec before but it somehow sticks to the water before lift off… Now I got a www.elevate.rocks inflatable board. It runs much easier and does not stick to the water surface. They told me, it`s a special rockerline and some small changes that make big difference in terms of drag…
Got it just a few days ago but already love it…My friend has a liftfoil… Looks like engine is same…but biggest difference: elevate fits in my car within 1minute & weighs about 5-7kg less than the lift… .
That’s a lot. Would you have some pictures of the Elevate especially the box opened and closed ? Which ESC is it delivered with ? Could you give us a few dimensions:
- Waterproof box :
- Board innner cut out, board inflated:
- Board innner cut out, flat (board deflated):
Hi @yargaroo. Thanks for the info. I’ve noticed that some of the inflatable boards appear to have a front end that is lower than the back, almost like it’s concave. If this is the case, there will be an area of lower pressure under the board that will cause it to “suck” to the surface. Maybe I’ll give it a bit more rocker to try and avoid this happening!
Any photos and measurements of the electrical box would be a great help!
What does everyone think about the 30cm x 60cm opening for the electronics, etc? Big enough?
If you thinking the boards look concave while someone is out the water on the board, its because the board is flexing down under the weight. In the water the flex should come back to a convex shape. Ultimately they will always have some flex.
Size should be fine. My hatch is 500x350 and it has ample space.
Should be OK, I haven’t built the box yet, but the opening of my board is 29 by 68 cm, with “round” corners. It is quite similar to the gabratec easy goat.
Cool. How are you going to build your box?
The plan is to 3d print segments that build a “ring” inside the opening. I would then use a 5mm alu plate at the bottom and a carbon sandwich lid with a 8” hatch at the top. The bottom plate and the lid will be screwed to the ring (inserts). The 3d printed ring will be laminated with carbon.
Old thread but i’m looking in the same direction.
I’d think the rocker on the front should be more than 3cm, double this would be nice and a spec how far back it will go.
I wonder if the opening could be placed further back without loosing contact to the rest of the board, the boards i’ve seen on ali sites look like the opening is almost centered which i don’t think is the best,
I’d like to place mast even further to the rear, opening could be smaller.
@Jezza : have you got something along these lines?
Nice board! I’ll have a look at these but i had a hard time finding them first, finally found them on facebook. What did you pay?
This is what mine looks like:
That’s the carbon infused version (no logos yet obviously). There’s also a normal version which would be a bit cheaper.
Non-china manufacturer (actually same factory as mala).
@Jezza : Interesting! That’s about what i’d hoped for, I’d buy one if price is not too steep
You all speak about “Mala” but I can’t find any link or website when googling it
Vlastik tosa on facebook. 800eur for a board, don’t know if it’s the carbon version or not. Too steep for me unfortunately, they look nice
hello for me it is already the better évolution for means transporting . The box is at max at rear and specialy on this model who was very nice, is it flex carbone ? I have a question is if all the weight is in the box and the rear foot on top of the mast, and front foot After front of the box did have you enough weight on the front of the board to dont ride in weeling with standard wing set like gong foil or other?
The mast will be set as far back as possible. The battery will sit roughly just behind your front foot in the perfect place for a perfect centre of gravity. This will enable you to get the best performance from the board and foil.
