Electric Hydro Foilboards

The Innovative Hydroflyer Relies of Riders' Kinetic Energy

— May 19, 2021 — Eco
South African company Unifoil works in collaboration with Canadian inventor Jerry Mcarthur, to launch the Hydroflyer. Mcarthur has a background that familiarizes himself with riding mountain bikes and snowmobiles.
