Top 10 Questions About Efoil Lessons with Hawaii Efoil Experience


Efoil, the electrifying fusion of surfing and flying, has taken water sports to soaring new heights. If you're gearing up for an efoil lesson with Hawaii Efoil Experience, you might have a few burning questions. Don’t worry! We've got you covered with the top 10 queries to ensure you're ready to ride the waves, electric style.


What should I wear for my efoil lesson?

   Dress comfortably in swimwear or a 1mm wetsuit, depending on your preference. Don't forget sunscreen to shield against the Hawaiian sun. The water temperature is typically in the mid-70’s, and the air usually in the upper 80’s. It does feel slightly cooler when you are in the water because you are wet and the breeze will cause a light chill. We will provide you with a life jacket and helmet.


Do I need prior surf experience to try efoiling?

   Not at all! Efoil lessons cater to all skill levels, whether you're a seasoned surfer or a complete novice. Our experienced instructors will guide you through every step of the process. We also have stabilizing equipment that make it much easier to balance on our boards.


Can my 10-year-old son ride an efoil?

   Absolutely! Efoiling is an exhilarating experience suitable for adventurers of all ages. We offer tailored lessons for children, ensuring a safe and enjoyable ride for your youngest one. Be advised that younger children are often intimidated because they feel alone on the water even though our instructor is nearby.


I'm 65 years old. Will efoiling be harder for me?

   Age is just a number when it comes to efoiling. Our instructors are skilled at adapting lessons to suit every individual's capabilities, ensuring a memorable experience regardless of age. Our oldest student is nearly 80, and many of our students enjoy their retirement time on an efoil daily.


What safety measures are in place during efoil lessons?

   Safety is our top priority. Before hitting the water, you'll receive comprehensive safety instructions and be equipped with a life jacket and helmet. Our instructors will closely supervise your session to ensure a safe and enjoyable ride, and will remain in radio communication with you. Our efoil propellors are also fully guarded to keep your fingers and toes away from a spinning prop.


How long does a typical efoil lesson last?

   Efoil lessons typically last around 60 to 90 minutes, providing ample time to master the basics and experience the thrill of gliding above the water.


What if I fall off the efoil?

   Falling is all part of the learning process! Our instructors will teach you how to safely dismount and remount the efoil. With their guidance, you'll be back on your feet (or board) in no time.


Can I bring my own efoil equipment to the lesson?

   While you're welcome to bring your own efoil equipment, we provide top-of-the-line gear as part of our lessons. Rest assured, our equipment is meticulously maintained to ensure optimal performance and safety.


Will I be able to efoil independently after just one lesson?

   Mastery takes time, but our goal is to equip you with the skills and confidence to continue your efoil journey independently. With regular practice and dedication, you'll soon be soaring across the waves like a pro.
