You won’t forget your first time foiling. Wings fly below while you soar above. Almost anyone can learn, yet even the most experienced watersports athletes will have a blast on our Fliteboards.

The freedom to ride anywhere, any time, without wind or waves. It’s fast, quiet, and emission free!

Escape the crowds – fly anywhere, any time. Ride alone with your instructor or ride with friends to share the learning experience.

At Gold Coast Hydrofoil Tours we offer a 2 hour lesson/guided tour on the beautiful canals of the Gold Coast. It's a fun easy water activity for the whole family. We get everyone up and flying on the efoil.

Each rider get's their own motorized electric hydrofoil surfboard called a Fliteboard.

Unlike kiteboarding,snowboarding, or skiing, the learning curve is far easier, with greater reward.

Even for those with no previous water sports experience we can get you foiling with a focus on safety whilst building your confidence and skills.

I was looking forward to this adventure and it exceeded my expectations. Gold Coast Hydrofoil deliver a great product. Cyril was an excellent instructor. Safety briefing was solid and then the tuition to follow was hugely beneficial. I was up and foiling in the first half an hour. Cyril was vey patient and attentive as he coached me to improve my tecnique. The 2 hours literally flew by and i fell in love with foiling!

I would highly recommend a trip to GC Hydrofoil tours! The whole experience was 5 star and I couldn’t have had a better instructor with Cyril. It was so much fun I’m booking another tour in the next month. Everyone needs to try this amazing sport out and it’s fast and very easy to learn.

Cyril was a great instructor. He had us up and Hydrofoiling in no time. It's a great thing to try, I highly recommend it.

10/10 for service, professionalism and fun! This was a gift for my husband for Fathers Day and he had so much fun. The company are organised, the instructor (Cyril) was professional, calm and knowledgeable and the location is great. We will be back, and will be letting others know to have a go too. You will not be disappointed and it is well worth the cost price. Thank you so much Gold Coast Hydrofoil Tours!!!

An incredibly professional outfit and all-round incredible experience. Cyril was just brilliant - very clear instructions not to mention encouraging

Ron B August 2021

Cyril was really helpful in coaching me and got me up and foiling in under 30 minutes. Foiling is a great experience and is quite unlike surfing or snowboarding. Great day, thanks Cyril!

Quest56544225920 July 2021

Had the best experience Cyril was an absolute legend and thought us in a day how to ride. I’d advise anyone to get a lesson with him

Did a group lesson today with my “kids”, I’m 53 and twin girls are 25. We had a ball, Cyrils’ instruction was great, we were up and going in no time at all. Awesome. Location was perfect, easy access, flat protected water, felt very safe and well operated.

W3693RAgregb July 2021

Second time foiling with these guys and enjoyed it even more. A couple of quick reminders from Cyril the instructor and I picked up just where I had left off from the first session. The sensation when the board is out of the water and you are cruising is simply amazing. Fabulous set-up and I was able to use one of the wetsuits they have available. Will be back! Adherence to current QLD Government Covid measures were in place!

Gone form a complete newbie to carving it up on the Gold Coast Broadwater. Great tours and stopover on the canals and greater Broadwater, thanks Cyril John B, Kiwi

Excellent lesson with Cyril. The experience of hydrofoiling was spectacular! Easy to learn and would definitely book it again

This was simply Amazing! I was a bit worried going in if I could actually to this but the teacher guided me through each step and before I knew It I was standing up gliding over the water. Best new thing to do 100%

tburnside566 June 2021

What a great two hours. My son and I lived it and due the the tremendous instructor got onto our feet in no time at all and have an absolute blast. We will definitely be back and about to book for my other son. Keep up the great work Gold Coast Hydrofoil Tours.

My trainer was excellent. Great customer service & instructions. I had a great time. Once I got the hang of it we went on a hydrofoil tour of the canals. Thanks very much.

Had a great time with Gaby as instructor. Was up standing and foiling in about 20mins. Tired and satisfied by the end of the 2hrs. Great fun.

TwistedTim1984 May 2021

Absolutely loved it. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Awesome experience. Highly recommended

After four awful goes at prone/padde foiling in the surf, I was ready to give it up. As a last resort I though about trying efoiling, which might give me a better chance at keeping the foil up and balanced. Without all the variables that you have to contend with in the surf, the efoil had a much quicker learning curve and I was quickly up and practising smooth transitions up and down and turns. By the end of 2 super fun hours I had burning thighs but also heaps of control and confidence with the foil, high in the air. This experience up on the foil made the next surf foil sessions much, much easier. Big thanks to to Cyril for his helpful tips and an overall, awesome morning

We had a fantastic day Hydrofoiling(Efoil). Was so much fun, and is much easier than you'd think. The learning curve is pretty flat, we we're foiling after about 20- 30 minutes. Was starting to dial in carving at the end of the session, but that's when the curve starts to get a bit steeper, keeping the right altitude while carving, not loosing speed is a little tricky, big turns are easy. If you snowboard it's very similar. Remarkable how little speed is actually required to get up, and it's soo quiet. Something that just has to be experienced. Highly recommended.

Thank you Cyril for the great introduction to riding a fliteboard. Me and my daughter had an amazing time and can’t wait to come back again. The only problem is now we want one!

sharnet2015 April 2021

Gabi was great & had us both foiling by the end of the lesson, even though this was our first time. If you haven’t tried I highly recommend it as seriously fun.

KCJC1313 April 2021

One of the few experiences I would highly recommend for your "must do" list. I'm 70, yet I was foiling in the first hour.
For a full refund, cancel at least 24 hours in advance of the start date of the experience.
