“EFoiling in small canals is by far my favorite way to get around in cities. It brings the sport to a new audience and the surprise is guaranteed,” Lift Foils rider Alex Maes says.

“Bridges, tight tuns and spectators on both sides of the canals made an exciting fourth episode cut by our very own videographer Alexander James Lewis Hugues. I usually ride the 250 surf and 38 back in canals to fly at lower speed and still enjoy the best glides,” he continues.

Videographer Alexander Lewis-Hughes adds, “This was one of my favourite spots as it was something really unique to E-foil. It felt a bit like going to film somewhere on a Skateboard you’re maybe not allowed but it’s not certain either way.”

“I had trouble finding the guys at first because the place is such a maze, but as I ran around I finally bumped into Diego and filmed a few clips before the police chased us away,” he continues. “I didn’t even get to see Alex in there as the two had split up and also couldn’t find each other. That was definitely a highlight even as a tourist just looking around the area was super cool, I couldn’t imagine living there, what a nice place.”
