This electric hydrofoil surfboard is capable of accelerating up to 24 knots. Constructed from aircraft-grade carbon and aluminum, the Fliteboard guarantees a breathtaking flight through the water, even in total calm. It is set in motion by a propeller under the control of a hand-held bluetooth remote control, and hydrofoils raise the surfer above the water.
The flightboard is fast and quiet, with 2.5 hours of battery life. Three models are available, including the Fliteboard AIR, an inflatable compact option ideal for smaller yachts.

Beginners can ride it with a regular dagger-type centerboard, while adrenaline seekers should replace the centerboard with a T-shaped hydrofoil.
Body length The Flying Mantis is 4.2m, but its modular design allows outriggers to be removed for easy on-board storage.

The perfect alternative to the onboard gym. The Manta5 has three modes, Low, Medium and High, so you can choose your own pace. Thanks to its modular design, it folds easily and does not take up much space.

Slingwing Is the perfect accessory for your hydrofoil board. Part windsurfing, part kiteboarding, this inflatable single strut wing has created a completely new sport on the water - wing surfing, or "wing surfing".
Absolute beginners should, of course, master the board itself before installing the wing on it. We also recommend pairing your slingwing with the Slingshot 2020 Levitator paddleboard.
Price: about 750 €
Hyperfoil Is a new level of paddleboarding from the SAP specialists of the Starboard company. New for 2020 features a short, compact silhouette and thick profile, making it ideal for beginners.
Notches on the bottom guarantee stability like a trimaran. The wide tail provides a solid pushing pad to lift the board, while the wide nose helps to easily disengage and rise above the water. A ridge behind the rear allows the surfer to stabilize, and the center insert makes it easy to find the middle of the board.
