Getting Lifty in Côte d’Azur | Episode 3

In episode 3 of Getting Lifty in Cote d’Azur, the crew landed in Antibes for a free ride session…

It’s a 3/2 wetsuit and turquoise water for a unique session in Cote d’Azur for the episode 3 of Getting Lifty, this series exclusively made for the Foiling Magazine and Lift Foils.

EFoiling is still very new here in Europe. During this session we talked and explained about how our futuristic magic carpet ride works to intrigued locals. I love to encounter people that see an eFoil for the first time. Feels like you are coming from a science fiction movie and some of the reactions are still priceless. Nick Leason is the founder of Lift foils and inventor of the eFoil, and eFoiling is heading into a new dimension with the hard work of this visionary.

Where do we see eFoiling in 10 years? I love to think about this idea and what could be the future of our sport. I see great things happening all across Europe by pioneers of this sport with the creation of a new foil community. I believe that you will see eFoils in every lake and spot across the world. Gear wise we will see great improvements in the next few years to get us close to the feeling of classic foils, but with the ease of ride from eFoiling to bring more people into our beautiful sport.

“This spot was super unique to me, not only to shoot but also as a tourist. Generally I’m travelling to windy locations and more remote places, so it was unique for me to travel to a totally still bay and shoot some sports in a very touristic location, it made me wish I was on the board and not behind the lens! haha. It was crazy just how many people came up to me and asked what was happening on the water, many of which asking where to buy such a board. I think E-foiling is just getting started and spots like this really make it obvious how big it could get.” – Alexander Lewis-Hughes

Enjoy this episode from the comfort of your home and don’t forget to have fun on the water.
