What are Fliteboards?
Gold Coast Hydrofoil Tours uses Fliteboards, the leading brand on the market for hydrofoiling. Fliteboards are electric hydrofoils that allow users to glide above the water using a hand-held remote control. Fliteboards are approximately half the size of a traditional surfboard that sits atop a mini hydrofoil. Surfers can hover about half a meter above water and waves quickly and quietly.
