Over the last 6 months, I have spent hundreds of hours researching, building, and testing a new electric efoil surfboard and watertight surfboard remote control. While I have been able to create a DIY electric hydrofoil propulsion system that works, myself and roughly 700 additional DIY electrical surfboard builders have yet to find a simple and affordable way to build or purchase a waterproof bluetooth remote control.
Let’s face it, nobody feels cool riding their electrical surfboard with a DIY waterproof remote in a lunch bag. It will be a challenge for someone to develop a vibrant, floating, waterproof surfboard remote controller that’s designed with smooth throttle control, relaxation, and be affordably priced.
Currently, there are over 80 contractors in various online forums and Facebook groups, trying to create a solution which will be simple to build and work well.
If you are attempting to construct your own or thinking to build your own remote just bear in mind that parts you buy have a big danger of not working and you’ll quickly spend $150-$800 on components. This is the whole point of open source design and building groups. This process of design is able to move fast, as everyone pitches in and shares insight and they get something great in the end to use.
There are several new electrical surfboard and jet board systems now. Many have waterproof a remote, but they don’t sell to the DIY efoil builder’s community.
A watertight surfboard remote control will be a game changer for the water sport business to support electric surfboard, jet surfboard, and efoil organizations to use an open source remote control without having to spend $45,000 or more on research, testing, plastic molds, bulk orders, and 6+ month turnaround from begin to finish.
If this sort of merchandise becomes available will open the doors to the electrical water sports industry as now there are no watertight remote control systems available for individuals that comes complete with a receiver allowing it to be used with almost any digital system on the market. It does not matter if you have an electric skateboard, electric wakeboard, electrical surfboard, or efoil. A universal remote will work all apparatus meaning you only need you!
