Fly over water


Fly over water with Lift hydrofoil surfboards!

No wind? No waves? No problem. Check out Lift, a family-run business operating out of Puerto Rico dedicated to building hydrofoil surfboards, both powered and non-powered. Lift uses high-tech lithium battery packs and carbon fiber hydrofoils to surf over the water and make everyone feel that they are flying. 

Cofounder Nick Leason, an engineer and avid surfer, came up with the idea for the original eFoil. He applied the technology from smartphones, electric vehicles, and even drones into a board that would let its rider fly above any body of water without needing to be propelled by wind or waves. Nick and the designers use Rhino to develop the boards, hydrofoils, motors, and tools and use RhinoCAM for CNC operations.
