Wing-Surfing Foiling Lesson

Devon

This lesson is aimed at those who have previous wingsurfing experience and are ready to progress on to the foil, or those who have a good level of foiling experience in another watersport such as kiting, windsurfing, surf/sup foiling.

This session is a 2 hour intensive session (max 2 students) focused on transitioning from a regular board without hydrofoil to a foiling setup. During this session you will gain the necessary skills to experience your first glides under the wing!


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. Foiling equipment overview and setup
  2. Foiling safety considerations
  3. Riding and controlling the board at various angles to the wind with the foil setup
  4. Developing power and controlling board speed and foil lift
  5. Transitioning up onto the foil
  6. First glides!
  7. Maintaining the glide and controlling board direction and speed now on the foil


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
