E-foil Lessons and training – Groups
Contact us for exact pricing, but group rates are generally $125/hr.
Travel rates may apply if we are meeting you at your lake.
We love to travel.
Groups rates apply if committing to a minimum of 3 hours of lessons.
Join the E-foiling revolution.
Riding above the water on a Lift E-foil is an amazing experience.
If you have never foiled before, the best analogy is similar to riding in powder all day long.
Of all the foiling disciplines (kite, wake, surf, sup, wing, etc.) learning to foil on a LIFT E-foil is the easiest of them all by a LONG shot.
It’s not uncommon to have first time riders foiling well in the first session.
These state of the art powerful e-machines are just plain fun to ride.
We’ll spend a short amount of time going over some basics on land, then it’s time to hit the water.
What to expect in your Group lesson/training session:
- Proper throttle control.
- How to get up from you stomach, to your knees and then standing.
- You’ll learn basic foiling from your knees and/or standing.
- How to safely handle and operate the Lift E-foil.
- You’ll have a lot of fun learning how to E-foil.
- Everyone learns at a different pace. We’re here to move you along quickly if you learn faster than most. On the flip side, we also take time where needed to ensure riders are learning and understanding the basics.
- Groups lessons are a minimum of 3-4 hours.
- We typically get around 2-2.5 hours on 1 battery during lessons.
What we offer:
- A fun, light hearted experience while learning from a trained professional.
- Training sessions using a 2 way headset/helmet system.
- You will progress much faster being able to get instant feedback and tips (even if you are 300 feet away).
- The BBtalkin’ system is fully waterproof and a must have for lessons and training sessions on the E-foil.
- Life jackets.
- Shorty wet suits if needed (most sizes).
What you should bring:
- Suit and towel.
- Booties if you have them.
- Wet suit if needed.
How long are lessons?
Most single person lessons last about an hour and a half to 2 hours which is the length of one full battery plus a little dry land training.
If we are training more than 1 person or groups, the lessons are typically longer.
Most new riders really want to run through a full battery on their first lesson.
Group lesson and sessions are typically 3 hours or longer.
Length of lessons may be determined on how many batteries we have.
Lighter riders will get longer sessions on the batteries.
What are your rates?
1st time riders = $150/hr.
2nd time riders = $125/hr.
3rd time riders = $100/hr. (Same rate for 3rd, 4th, 5th time, etc. etc.)
***Rates are per hour and you can split it with multiple people.
Group rates: Call for pricing.
How long does a battery last?
A single charge will last about an hour and 20 minutes (1hr / 20) for an average sized rider.
Really light riders can get much longer sessions.
We had a group of 9 kids that rode for 3 hours on 1 battery during the training sessions.
Is there a minimum or maximum age?
Yes and no. We have trained a lot of younger kids from age 10 on up.
It’s more the weight of the kids so they can control the board with their feet properly.
For older riders, it depends on physical ability and desire. We don’t have an age limit…..yet.
Is there a minimum weight?
Close to 60-80 lbs. We’re still figuring out the minimum weight.
Is it easy or hard to learn?
Everyone learns at a different rate, but learning to actually foil is somewhat easy (mostly).
Learning how to properly get up on the e-foil can take a little time for some, but it’s such a fun experience.
Do you offer groups lessons or just private lessons and training?
We offer all types of lessons.
Semi-private (2 students) are very popular. We’ve had groups of over 15, so it is possible to have larger groups.
The more riders you have, the less time each rider may have on the E-foil, but groups are a lot of fun.
Where do you offer lessons and training:
Most of our lessons are done on local Madison area lakes.
However…..We also love to travel to your local lake. We’ll travel up to 4 or 5 hours away if needed.
How do you know if our local lake is good for e-foiling?
Does it have water? Ok…we’re good to go.
In all seriousness, I/we do a site evaluation before we efoil on other lakes.
Conditions matter. The cleaner the waters the better.
Weeds can be one of the biggest issues in the summer months.
Do you charge for traveling to our lakes?
Yes….we add travel fees depending no how far and low large the group is. The rate is minimal just to help cover expenses and is determined how your location.
Is there a minimum lesson hours if you travel to our location?
Yes….we require at least 3 hours.
If I already know how to ride, can I just rent the Lift E-foil?
Yes….the rate is either $125/hr or $100/hr.
Can we rent the E-foil for multiple days?
Yes….we’ve had our E-foil taken to Colorado, Mn, IL and Northern Wi., and flown out of the country to other exotic locations.
Call for details and pricing.
Can I order my training online?
Yes…..Order on the web site and see below for scheduling.
Do we schedule our time online or call or email?
Since we are 100% mobile, we do not schedule online.
We also try to maximize your conditions.
Since we also run a kite business, if it’s really windy, we try to schedule around windy days.
Less wind is desirable for E-foiling. It makes it easier for new students to learn with less chop that the winds create.
