What you'll do

Learn how to fly on an electric foil board! Different to surfing and stand-up paddle boarding – it’s an experience like no other on the water.

Your 60 minute lesson will include:
- All equipment, including helmet and personal flotation device (life jacket).
- 15 minutes on the beach – run through the board, controller and safety.
- On the water – spend time lying on the board, getting used to the controls and aquaplaning, so you can get up onto your knees.
- First foil flight – once you’re confident picking up speed, you’ll make your first short ‘flite’, then gradually increase the amount of time you’re foiling (a.k.a flying).
- Foiling – when you have the basics of foiling straight, you’ll be able to shift your balance and turn the board.

We’ll go through each step at your pace. You’ll quickly learn how fun and unique it is!
I have two foils with two different types of boards – an inflatable, more forgiving learner board and a more advanced carbon fibre board.
With your permission, I'll record the session with a GoPro and send you a short video after your lesson.

Originally from WA, I've been wakeboarding and surfing for 10 years and have held a WA Skippers ticket for over 9 years. I moved to NSW a few years ago and now have a NSW Personal Watercraft and Boat Licence, so you'll be in safe hands while you’re on the water. (Note guests don't require a licence for a lesson).
Fliteboards are a new product (less than 12 months in market), but already considered a premium electric hydrofoil choice. Water sports lovers around the world are very excited about it and I can’t wait to show people how fun and different they are to surf on.

Fliteboarding is an incredibly fun and unique experience. As a keen surfer, wakeboarder and snowboarder, I was surprised at how different fliteboarding felt- when you are on the foil it is completely frictionless, fast and fun. Whether or not you’ve tried a few different board sports, you should definitely try fliteboarding at least once. Luke was a fantastic guide- knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. He provided clear instructions and advice during the lesson, which meant I was able to learn the basics quickly and started “flying” after about twenty minutes. He even let me try a couple of different boards which meant I had new challenges throughout the lesson. We were in a beautiful location in Booker Bay. Can’t think of many better ways to spend a morning. Cheers Luke!

Such a terrific day!! Had great fun learning to fly with Luke! I was a little nervous before starting but that was quickly put at ease. The whole process from learning the safety basics on the beach, to playing around on your knees to eventually flying was great. I was even foiling by the end! (Which is definitely due to Luke's teaching abilities and not my skill! 😂) I could not recommend this experience enough. And in such a pretty location too, very easy to get to from Sydney and close to many cafes for when you've worked up an appetite. I'm hooked now, I'll be back for sure! Thanks again Luke!

As someone who can't surf I was a little apprehensive about trying the Fliteboard. However within 15 minutes with Luke I was standing and managed to foil at around 15kmph! It really is an incredible experience unlike anything I've done on the water before. Luke gave a great intro to the technology and seemed super passionate about it. After watching a quick intro video and helping to assemble the boards we were in the water. We started off slowly practicing controlling the throttle and how to safely fall off the board. Once I was confident enough on my knees I managed to stand comfortably on the board and steer. After that we practiced foiling which is a pretty bizarre experience at first but after a few tries, I started to get the hang of it. The location is perfect as there really weren't too many other boats/jetskis in the water. I felt comfortable even though I was a complete beginner. Plus it's a great way to see some of the central coast! I loved the experience especially since the boards are eco friendly and don't make a ton of noise unlike jetskis! I'd definitely book again with Electric Surfhut 😎

Had a great time. It's a very cool feeling flying over the water in almost complete silence. Luke was great, he gave me plenty of instruction when I needed it and let me do my own thing once I had the hang of it. Was an awesome experience!
