Esea Foil delivery can take up to two working weeks and is shipped direct from the manufacturer.
Esea Foil’s Boost or Cruise are retrofitted to your existing foiling set up. Mount the pod and propeller on your foil mast at your preferred height, affix the mounting plate and battery to your board and you’re good to go.
The Esea Foil Cruise is the most powerful retrofitted foil assist on the market! Increased thrust, longer run time, efficient drive and ultimate performance make this so. Designed and tested in the UK by a team of dedicated, experienced engineers, the end result is what you see with the Esea Foil Boost and Cruise models.
For performance foiling, where it’s only the foil assist which is needed we recommend the Easea Foil Boost. The pod sits higher on your foil mast and literally boosts you on foil. As your foil lifts the pods exits the water leaving you, the rider, to ride off foil as you would do naturally. No drag and that real foil feeling! This gives endless possibilities in terms of the low end threshold of what conditions you actually need to foil and what gear you can use. E.G: smaller hand wings and foils are now accessible in even lighter airs for every day riders.
If you’re wanting the Esea Foil to give you some eFoiling fun then we’d recommend the Cruise which benefits from a bigger battery and longer run time. Note: Eesea Foil’s foil assist isn’t an eFoil as it doesn’t have the same range. But it’s still possible to enjoy some foiling fun in this guise on flat water. For beginners, looking to take their first flights, this is also a good option. The Easea Foil’s aluminium folding prop then helps eliminate drag once flying.
The Esea Foil Boost –
Best for SUP foiling, low wind wing foiling and prone foiling.
- Average 2-3 hours Surf Time
- Peak Thrust: 26kg
- 28-32V Lithium Battery
- Weight: 3.7kg
Esea Foil’s Boost operates with a 28-32V battery system, which hosts a battery enclosure of just 7.5cm tall. The full system weighs 3.7kg.
The Esea Foil Boost system uses the revolutionary tailor-made Esea Foil mastgrasp, providing interchangeable connections with a secure and streamlined fit to your hydrofoil mast.
The Esea Foil Boost has a smaller profile controller with a higher trigger position well suited to upper handle positioning when fitted to a paddle for SUP foiling.
While the Esea Foil system can be used for eFoiling (when used with appropriate foils) it must be appreciated that it’s designed as a lightweight retrofit foil assist first and foremost. It’s not a full eFoil and has limitations due to battery size and method of cooling of the electronics.
A dedicated eFoil has a significantly larger and heavier battery (circa 8-10 times), with a much greater capacity and operating voltage.
The Esea Foil system should not be used for extended periods at 100% throttle. If used at high throttle for extended durations the electronics automatically reduces power to keep within the operating temperature parameters of the system.
Use of high throttle percentages for extended durations will significantly reduce run time due to high power consumption, the figures stated for surf time are based on short bursts to push you onto a wave, these do not reflect eFoil time.
The Esea Foil Cruise –
Best for everyday performance foiling.
- Average 2-3 hours Surf Time
- Peak Thrust: 29.5kg
- 36-42V Lithium Battery
- Weight: 4.4kg
The Esea Foil cruise operates with a 36-42V battery system, offering increased power and run time over the Eseafoil Boost.
The battery enclosure is 10cm tall (vs 7.5cm for the boost) and the full system weighs 4.4kg.
The Esea Foil cruise uses the revolutionary tailor-made Esea Foil mastgrasp, providing interchangeable connections with a secure and streamlined fit to your hydrofoil mast.
The controller that operates the Esea Foil Cruise has additional benefits of a larger colour screen, GPS (showing live speed and distance covered), multi-level power options and additional display information.
With eFoiling in mind please read the text above to fully understand the Esea Foil Boost and Cruise limitations in this guise.
