Wing-Surfing Intro Lesson

Devon

The wingsurfing intro lesson is the ideal first wingsurfing lesson for most. Unless you have a reasonable amount of experience in another foiling discipline, this is the one for you. This session is a 2 hour group session (max 4 students) focused on the basics and will progress you from wing handling on land to riding along on a SUP using the wing to harness the power of the wind.


Here at Edge, our team have been wingsurfing from the beginning and are some of the most experienced coaches in the country. We are recognised by both the sport’s NGBs (BKSA & RYA) and our lessons follow the BKSA/RYA syllabus. See below for our lesson details.


  1. Equipment overview and setup
  2. Site assessment & suitable conditions
  3. Wing handling on land
  4. Developing power with the wing
  5. Handling the wing and board and entering the water
  6. Transition from in the water to onto the board
  7. Riding on the board at various angles to the wind


What to bring

For Watersports Lessons - all watersports equipment and wetsuit/buoyancy aid is provided and included in your lesson cost but bring your own wetsuit if you have it as you know the fit will be perfect. Wetsuit accessories (gloves & boots) are not included and we would recommend considering buying at least some wetsuit boots to get the most out of lessons near the start and end of the season when it is a little colder (mar-apr and oct onwards).

Requirements

For all watersports - Water confidence & the ability to swim 50m unassisted.

For land based activities - ability to stand continuously and conduct moderate activity for extended periods
