What materials are used in producing LIFT hydrofoils and foil boards?

We use the finest materials on the market, and design the layup of each component to match its purpose. Our hydrofoil components are built primarily with carbon fiber, but also with kevlar, fiber glass, stainless steel, high density cores, and high performance epoxies.

Our foil boards are built with an EPS core, a PVC foam skin, carbon and glass fiber laminates & high density cores in areas of greater stress. The cores are CNC cut, molded and then laminated with a vacuum bag for the best adhesion possible. Our products are finished with the highest quality paints and clear coats available on the market.
