The New Wave of Surfing: HydroComp’s Key Role with the Futuristic eFoil
Surf’s up – even with no wind or waves. Thanks to Lift Foils’ portable and versatile invention, the eFoil, the next generation of surfers is emerging. To make his dream a reality, founder Nick Leason recruited the experts for each and every component of the futuristic personal watercraft – including HydroComp. Technical Director Donald MacPherson has had the pleasure of designing an integral part of the eFoil: the propeller. Some have even deemed his eFoil propellers as “a work of art.”
“HydroComp provides services for the design of propellers and protective shrouds for their Lift Foil boards,” Don explains. “This principally begins with hydrodynamic design using our commercial tools such as PropElements, but also detail studies with CFD. Then we develop geometric design for their manufacture and production.”
