Description

Introduction: So what is wing surfing / wing foiling all about ?


“Wing surfing / wing foiling adds another dimension to wind sports by merging the gap between windsurfing & kitesurfing. It has made conditions that aren’t very windy with no waves insanely fun…”

About this course: Wing surfing / wing foiling is an awesome sport. We have designed a series of lessons priced at just £200 for up to 2 persons (so just £100 each if your prepared to share your lesson) to get you started safely in this amazing sport.


On average for people that have zero or very little experience with wing foiling it usually takes between 4 to 8 lessons before we normally get you up and riding on a foil board and possibly less if you have a back ground in another related sport such as windsurfing or kitesurfing.


For anyone new to the sport it not only provides practical experience in use of the wing and the foil board but also covers theory & essential safety, site reconnaissance, set up & signals that you need to be practiced in, prior to starting this amazing sport.


More Detail: On this course we will try to cover the following subjects so that you have a greater understanding of what wing surfing entails going forward:


1.Introduction to the different wings, foils and boards used in this sport

2.Understanding site reconnaissance & site selection for wing foiling

3.Understanding how the kit works and putting it together (rigging)

4.How to safely carry the kit avoiding unnecessary breakage to the kit (or to oneself)

5.Land drills with the wing prior to water drills

6.Starting on the water with your SUP board / Foil board & wing 

7.How the SUP board is handled to maintain position up wind – tips & tricks
