Flitescooter: Discover The Most Accessible Route to eFoiling

eFoiling Made Accessible and Fun

There's something about the thrill of uncharted territory, the lure of the unknown. You know the feeling, when you're stepping into a strange land, or in this case, skimming across a vast expanse of water with only your wits and a handy little contraption to guide you. Ah, the siren song of the sea…

Enter the Flitescooter. Brought to life by the folks at Flite, it's an impressive piece of work, bridging the gap between man and the majestic dance of the ocean waves. What a wonderful opportunity it presents for those who might find the water a tad intimidating or, dare I say, a bit out of their depth.

The design is thoughtful, clever even, catering to the hesitant newcomers as well as the eager beavers among us. The large inflatable board, like a friendly sea creature offering its back for you to ride, hosts a strategically placed handlebar – an offer of stability when the ocean decides to put you to the test.

The forward-facing stance it encourages, coupled with its non-slip upper surface, appeals to a broader audience. Families out for a day in the sun, tourists longing to tick something off their bucket list, or anyone else looking to escape the ordinary, the Flitescooter offers a relatively relaxed way to conquer the waves.

What strikes me most is its adaptability. It caters to your growing confidence and burgeoning skills. That's not something you see every day. The handheld Flite Controller undocks from the handlebar, and as your proficiency grows, the handlebar itself can be detached, leaving you to fly across the water as a surf-style maestro.

Then there's the fully enclosed jet propulsion system, the beginner-friendly Cruiser 1800 wings, the removable Flitecell Sport battery pack. There's an impressive blend of technical brilliance and accessibility here that offers you a solid 90 minutes of the glorious salty air, with an option to extend it to 150 minutes if your heart desires.

However, the price tag is a tad steep – starting at $12,995. It’s an investment that requires some thought, some serious consideration of how often you might be out there, feeling the sea breeze tousle your hair. But, let's face it, can you really put a price on the promise of freedom, on the call of the open water?

In the end, the Flitescooter is a testament to human ingenuity, a nod to our relentless pursuit of fun and adventure. It's not just a contraption, but a chance to touch the unexplored, to soar above the waves and maybe, just maybe, to find a piece of yourself amidst the vast expanse of the sea.


  1. Accessibility: The Flitescooter is designed with beginners in mind, offering a relatively easy introduction to eFoiling. This makes it accessible to a wide range of people, including those without previous watersports experience.
  2. Stability: The mid-mount handlebars and large inflatable board offer greater stability and balance for riders. This feature is particularly helpful for newcomers who may find eFoiling a bit challenging.
  3. Adaptability: As riders gain confidence and skill, the Flitescooter can be adapted for a more advanced experience. The handlebar can be removed and the handheld Flite Controller undocked, allowing for a more freeform, surf-style riding experience.
  4. Durability and Safety: The fully enclosed jet propulsion system is likely to be less prone to damage and safer around swimmers and marine life.
  5. Battery Life: With a removable Flitecell Sport battery pack providing up to 90 minutes of ride time (and an option to increase that to 150 minutes), riders can enjoy extended outings on the water.


  1. Price: The starting price of $12,995 is quite steep, potentially putting it out of reach for many prospective buyers. This might limit its appeal primarily to enthusiasts or rental companies.
  2. Learning Curve: Despite the beginner-friendly design, there's likely to be a learning curve associated with mastering the Flitescooter. Some people may still find the experience intimidating or challenging.
  3. Size and Portability: The large inflatable board may present some storage and transportation challenges. Although it is inflatable, you would still need a suitable vehicle or storage area to accommodate it.
  4. Availability: As of now, the Flitescooter is only available for pre-order, with shipping estimated to start several months from now. This might deter potential buyers who are looking for an immediate purchase.
  5. Limited Utility: Unlike more versatile watercraft, the Flitescooter’s use is specifically tied to calm waters suitable for eFoiling. Rough sea conditions or low tide could limit its usage.
