Rob Wylie, said:

“Ever since I first experienced riding on a fliteboard, I was hooked as I knew this was going to be the next generation of watersports. I was so impressed that I also invested in the company to join the fliteboard story and support building awareness around the product and the efoiling category as a whole. The channel crossing has not only set a new world record but also proves how advanced fliteboard’s technology is that we successfully made the crossing on one single battery charge.”
