We’ve known the Whimsifoil brand since 2018 with their inflatable boards. They are based in France.
They are now launching their latest product in a kind of “self crowd-founding mode”: the Plume efoil for 3800€ or 3165usd (excl vat export price) close to a DiY price.

Can we buy the Plume board separately ?
This motor looks much better than HISUN and clones in 2018.
