  • Fliteboard sells the Fliteboard efoil, a battery-powered hydro craft.
  • It looks like a surfboard, but moves above the water without relying on waves.

    Australian company Fliteboard presented its first e-surfboard in 2018.

    The Fliteboard looks like a surfboard from far away, however the individual on it appears to be drifting above water. Because it doesn’t rely on wave, the Fliteboard can go in the ocean, rivers, lakes, or anywhere with at least 3 feet of water.

Fliteboard sells three versions of the gadget.
