The Drive to get you flying!
Electric paddle assistance finally enters
the world of hydrofoil surfing!
What is it designed for?
Foil Drive Assist is designed to be retro fitted to your own larger volume boards such as SUP/Wing foil boards.
The intended uses are:
SUP Surfing | Down Winding | Wing Dinging
Foil Drive Assist provides paddle assistance to the rider. The primary objective is to be light weight and minimalistic, with a low drag design for as little obstruction to the amazing feeling of foiling. It is is not a flat water e-foil.
3kg | 21kg thrust | 10 min Install | 1-2hr Surf Time*
*Run time can vary based upon rider weigh, board volume, skill level, environmental conditions. See support section for more details.
Custom motor pods designed to fit a growing range of masts
Wireless throttle control can be handheld or
mounted to your SUP paddle
Single tool installation with no modification or damage
to your existing gear, removable in less than 5 mins to use your gear for other disciplines.

Wing ding riders are using their Assist on low wind days where there's not enough power to get out of the water using the wing alone. Using the controller on the included wrist lanyard, use full power to get up on foil, then wing ding as usual.
Down wind riders are loving motoring/paddling that bit further offshore to line up longer runs! With added thrust you can run smaller, faster wings and link sections, resulting in longer rides. If the conditions change, you’ve also got the added peace of mind knowing you don't have to manually paddle all the way back to shore.
Foil Drive Assist is not designed to be used on a Prone or Tow style, low volume Foil Boards. Due to the wireless connection, the box must remain above the waterline during usage.
Foil Drive Prone is currently in development ;)
