Learn the amazing new sport of eFoiling

Coronavirus COVID-19, Given the announcement by the Government last night to stop all non-essential work and to remain at home, FoilRide is closing until further notice. https://www.ribride.co.uk/coronavirus-covid-19/

Here in North Wales we are surrounded an awesome seascape and the beautifully sheltered Menai Strait. This makes the area a perfect location to give you the best efoiling experience as you fly above the surface of the water.

The eFoil is an electric surfboard that flies above a hydrofoil wing. The eFoil is near silent and is charged with power from renewable sources. It is a great way to interact with our environment without imposing on it.

Do I need to be a super-athlete?

No, all we need are people who can swim 25 m in open water, are happy for their head to go underwater and can kneel and stand on a slightly wobbly surface.

Will I fall in?

If you don’t, you’re not trying!

It’s quite expensive, why is that?

Battery technology like this still commands very high prices. Add to that the high cost of using carbon fibre to manufacture boards, mast and wings. The equipment is all handmade, as are all the electronics. You can then understand the high value of this amazing new technology.

This is an unashamedly expensive sport however we feel lesson prices are great value and the experience is exceptional.

If I like it can I buy an eFoil?

Yes, in fact you get a chunk of your lesson £’s back as a discount. In a couple of days we will ship your new efoil directly to your door.

What kit do I need to bring?

You will need a footwear, and a towel. Due to the time of year, you might even want a wetsuit hat and gloves during shoulder seasons. We will provide the wetsuit, buoyancy aid and helmet.
