Origin of Flite

The founder of Flite is former kite-surfing world record holder David Trewern, was at a kitefoiling event in 2016 when he had the thought: ‘What if I didn’t have to wait for the wind. What if I could just attach an electric motor to my foil?’

In the workshop he sketched out his designs and ideas, built prototypes until he found the right mix, now Flite boards are all over the world and has created its own new category of water sport.

Trewern claims about that first ride ‘It was magical. The feeling of freedom was like nothing else.’ And that has translated to global success with more than 330 authorised partners selling boards, Fliteschools across the world, and offices in three countries: Australia, The Netherlands and The United States.

Fliteboards come in five different models that best suit the riders experience with the boards available in fibreglass and carbon fibre and a modular and upgradable range of customisation that starts at $15,495 AUD up to $20,995 for the Ultra L designed to be ultra light and highly responsive in varied surf conditions.
