What is eFoiling?

EFoiling is one of the most fascinating types of watersports and can almost be deemed the “future of watersports.” It provides surfers with spectacular experiences on previously unrideable waves. EFoiling can be done on any body of water, including the ocean, lakes and rivers. You don’t need waves to propel the eFoil since the motor does it for you. Discover rare maritime creatures, explore new rivers and surf ocean waves with your eFoil.

How Does an eFoil Work?

Fliteboard in action

Starting from the bottom, the eFoil has two foil wings — a front and a rear wing. Respectively, these wings create lift and help stabilize the board. Next, the fuselage is a bar that attaches perpendicularly to the mast and wings, creating stability. The wings and fuselage mimic the shape of a paper airplane. 

The electric propeller mounted just above the wings and fuselage propels the board over the water. The mast holds and connects the bottom components to the board, creating enough pressure underneath to lift the board in the air and out of the water.

A rechargeable battery, kept in the board itself, and a virtually silent electric motor powers the eFoil. A handheld wireless remote that connects through Bluetooth operates the eFoil. 

Why Fliteboard?

Experience the Freedom

Flite are continually innovating and developing new technologies that, when scaled, have the potential to create a future of quiet, clean ocean enjoyment and water transport.

Fliteboards are able to carry an 80kg human at foiling speed using less than 700 watts of battery powered electricity. They are quiet above the water, and have an underwater acoustic profile that is significantly less impactful than even the smallest petrol marine motor. They are manufactured to commercial grade and built to last.

Overall, a Jetsurf works by combining a small engine, an impeller, and a handheld remote control to create a thrilling motorized surfing experience.

Origin of Jetsurf

Jetsurf is a brand of motorized surfboards that was founded in 2008 by Martin Sula, a Czech engineer and entrepreneur. Sula had been involved in the development of various watercrafts, including motorized canoes and kayaks, but he was looking for a new challenge.

Inspired by the idea of combining surfing with motorized propulsion, Sula set out to design a motorized surfboard that could deliver the performance and excitement of traditional surfing, while also being easy to use and accessible to a wider range of riders.

After several years of research and development, Sula and his team unveiled the first Jetsurf prototype in 2008. The board was an instant success, attracting attention from water sports enthusiasts and investors around the world.

Over the next few years, Sula continued to refine the design and performance of the Jetsurf boards, introducing new models and features that were tailored to the needs of different riders and applications. Today, Jetsurf is recognized as one of the leading brands in the motorized surfboarding industry, with a reputation for innovation, quality, and performance.

While Jetsurf was originally created by Martin Sula and his team in the Czech Republic, the brand has since expanded to include dealers and distributors in over 60 countries around the world. Jetsurf boards are used by recreational riders, professional athletes, and racing teams in a variety of settings, from calm lakes and rivers to open ocean surf.

Jetsurf in Malta

Jetsurfing is gaining popularity in Malta, a small island nation located in the Mediterranean Sea. With its crystal-clear waters and stunning coastline, Malta is an ideal destination for water sports enthusiasts, and Jetsurfing is no exception.

Jetsurf was introduced in Malta by Steve and Ryan Rizzo (father and son) who are both engineers with a passion for the sea. They went on to form Ritz Marine (coming from their nickname Ritz which is short for Rizzo) who are the sole and only authorised dealers for Jetsurf on the island.

One of the advantages of Jetsurfing in Malta is the range of conditions available. Depending on the location and time of year, you can experience calm, flat water for smooth cruising, or more challenging waves for a thrilling surfing experience.
