I am new to efoils, but luckily I have worked on many other DIY projects like electric skateboards, onewheels, FPV quads, etc. So I am pretty ok with VESC, battery, motor, and the wiring/ electronics.
I do need help with the rest of the stuff though.
The goal is to make it as cheap as possible but also with as little ‘manufacturing’ work invovled. I dont want to make any enclosures with fiberglass or carbon fiber or molds. 3D printing is OK tho. lol.
So after researching the forum and other places, I came across the inflatable board, like the one elevate.rocks is offering. That seems like a good option. Its cheap and easy to carry.
The issue is designing the box that will fit inside and the mast (is that what its called?)
- Is an inflatable board a good option? Any cheap links for it? What size is best?
- What design/size of the mast/rudder (the stuff underneath) should I go with? I saw a couple optoins on Alibaba:
Different Models Surf Hydrofoil Full Carbon Surfboard Hydrofoil Wing Foil Surf Sup Foil - Buy Kitesurfing,Windsurfing,Foil Wing Product on Alibaba.com
Which one would you guys recommend?
