Lift Off

 

 

It’s surfing without a wave, snowboarding without the powder, flying without a plane… it’s eFoiling, your new (albeit expensive) board sport! An eFoil is a motorized surfboard with a sleek hydrofoil design that lifts the board out of the water at speeds of up to 25 mph with control of a wireless handheld remote. Lift, the family-owned, Puerto Rico based company, is the creator of the best-selling eFoil on the market — and one can be yours for a mere $12,000.

You are likely familiar with the concept of foiling as it applies to sailing, and have seen the hydrofoil race boats that have become standard design in the America’s Cup. As speed increases, wing-like foils propel the board up and you float above the surface as the blade slices through the water below. A two-hour charge lets you ride for about 90 minutes.

Described by some as a cross between a Jet Ski and a surfboard, thankfully the electric motor is silent, and eFoiling takes some athletic skill to master. I’ve been wanting to demo an e-Foil for a while, and Lift hooked me up with a lesson in Montauk, L.I. earlier this week. Kai Costanzo, owner of KaiKai sandals located at Gossman’s Dock (and other locations) was my instructor. Telling me most people don’t stand up on their first lesson, such would be my motivation!

Mason’s Tennis has been a part of the New York City shopping landscape since 1975 — a go-to destination for NYC’s tennis set and tourists alike. Opened by founder Mark Mason during tennis’s heyday, when players like Chris Evert, Bjorn Borg, Guillermo Vilas, John McEnroe, and Vitas Gerulaitas ruled the courts — and brands like Fila, Tacchini, and Ellesse made tennis style as big a part of the game as the matches themselves.

Mason’s is one of those original NYC specialty stores you don’t really find anymore, small but jam-packed, like a hardware store that’s got everything you need. Here it’s tennis — racquets, apparel, shoes, and accessories. The store was originally located on 7th Ave between 57th and 58th St, and moved to its current location on 53rd between Park and Madison in 1999. Read More
