According to the website WindFoilZone.com, a complete eFoil setup can ‘vary in price anywhere from $4,000 to $12,000’ and there are currently two major brands – Lift Foils and Flite Board.
The July 4 stunt was not the first time Mark Zuckerberg has posted videos of himself.
As Breitbart News reported, as recently as June 8 he could be seen throwing spears at wooden targets, and shooting a bow and arrow at bowling pins.

Last year, Zuckerberg was spotted with sunscreen plastered all over his face while vacationing in Hawaii, which prompted internet memes comparing him to everything from mimes to the Joker.
Zuckerberg later tried to explain the overdone sunscreen as an attempt to disguise himself from the omnipresent paparazzi.
