After about a year of step-by-step learning and building, here is my first efoil build.
Firstly, many thanks to everyone on this excellent forum for sharing, explaining and helping – with a special mention for Pacificmeister for creating the forum, Volker who inspired my board design and Taylor who, together with PM, developed the amazing parametric propellor and duct design for Fusion360.
