Eric Foht

Raised in Olde Naples, environmentalist and waterman; Eric has been sailing and kiting since 1998. When he is not planting native trees at the Botanical Garden, he enjoys sharing the beautiful feeling of flying. "It's like a magic carpet ride!"

Eric loves the feeling of being on the water with friends and becoming one with nature. In his free time, he can be found planting fruit trees, building green roofs or hanging in trees with his family. BA in Environmental Studies

Laura Foht

Enjoys exploring and chasing the wind with her family; kiting since 2006. An art and yoga teacher by trade, she looks forward to sharing the eFoil experience. "My favorite part of teaching eFoiling is that 'Smile' moment when it all clicks, and time and space drift away! There really is no feeling like it."

Laura loves to travel, practice yoga and meditation, and spend time with family and friends. Her first time eFoiling November of 2020, was a defining moment in her life. She knew immediately that she wanted to share. She teaches elementary art part-time at their son Finnegan's school, Lake Park Elementary, when not on the water. BA in Environmental studies and Education
Lead Instructor

Shaun Jacobs

Started surfing when he lived in Costa Rica; he moved to Naples and began wakesurfing and skimboarding. Shaun is a friendly and knowledgeable instructor. If you think he's a great surfer, you should see him play the drums!

At the age of ten Shaun moved from up state New York to Marco Island and quickly developed a love for the water and became an avid free surfer. When Shaun was seventeen he moved to Costa Rica and surfed alongside some of the top Costa Rican professionals. Shaun moved back to the states two years later landing in Naples where he met Christina and she infected him with a love of skimboarding! Always starving for waves Shaun began wakesurfing and started competing in 2016, sitting top ten in his division with the CWSA.

Shaun’s sponsors include: Exile Skimboards, Black Atlantic Surfboards, Old Naples Surf Shop, Hump Optics, Viskus Wax Alternative, and Saltwater Syndicate

How Does It Work?

The eFoil uses an advanced lithium-ion battery to power a silent electric motor that’s mounted on an all-carbon-fiber hydrofoil. Controlled by a wireless Bluetooth hand remote, it allows you to ride for over an hour at 25 mph on a two hour charge.

Because the eFoil is all-electric, it emits no emissions or noise, and requires very minimal maintenance, if any. 

Who Can Use The EFoil?

We’ve designed our products for everyone from total beginners looking for a fun and safe experience to top athletes who are seeking their next thrill.

We generally recommend the eFoil for riders ages 16 and up, who weigh less than 260 pounds.
