Didn't catch our Monthly email update from May? No worries, find all the info here! We'd like to introduce the first of many, monthly Foil Drive updates! We're going to take a look back on the month that's been and fill you in on what we've been up to, any new products, blogs and exciting content, as well as some tips and tricks!
May has been a huge month for us here at Foil Drive HQ and in the water around the world, let's jump in!
ALL Assist PLUS Pre-Orders
have shipped (As of end of May 2022)!
We can now happily say all pre-orders for the Assist PLUS are out the door! We thank all pre-order customers for their understanding and patience waiting for their new gear and we're stoked to see you all heading out across the globe! Find the current lead time for shipping on our home page.
SHIPPING AND MATERIAL DELAYS
Some of our key components were caught up in the nightmare of the global semiconductor chip shortages, manufacturing lockdowns, and closed or majorly delayed port/shipping operations, resulting in some components taking more than 4 months longer to arrive than anticipated. Moving forward, the team has spent considerable time, effort, and a heap of capital to ensure smoother supply of critical materials and components.
Foil Drive Aussie East Coast Demo
Early May saw Caitlyn, Ben and Paul hit the beaches of Sydney and Newcastle on the East Coast of Australia to meet up with some of the Foil Drive Crew over there. We also took the time to catch up with our awesome stockists in the area, WSS Boards in Manly and Kite and SUP in Warners Bay. We'll be diving into each of our stockists in the coming months.
This was a very insightful trip for us all in running some demos and getting out with existing owners and seeing how they use their kits for their conditions. Massive thanks to everyone who came out and meet us to shared the stoke of Foil Drive!
THE TEAM EXPANDS
Did you know we have a Foil Drive Owners Group on Facebook? This month has been busy over there with regular characters like Giampaolo and Dominic pushing the limits of gear selection and heaps of new crew finding their wings with the power of Foil Drive - be sure to check it out!
The crew also share some epic videos and photos, we select a new shot each month for the group cover photo so be sure to share your snaps!

That's a wrap for May! From everyone here at HQ, we want to thank you for your ongoing support. We can't wait to see more of you out in the water!
