Wing Foil School

It is the newest board sport and is enjoying great success. This new discipline consists of operating a wing free of the board and without cables, to be held directly with both hands. The board, which is usually small for the more experienced riders, is fitted with a hydrofoil fin with different set-up possibilities, depending on the level of the rider. The result is a mix of wind foiling, kite foiling and sup foiling.

Gliding on a wing foil you immediately feel a great sense of freedom of movement on the water, using both wind and wave energy.

The thing that makes wing foil and wing surfing really fun is the low wind strength needed to glide. Without a hydrofoil board, you can sail with a handful of knots, while to fly a wing foil with a 5m wing you can start having fun from 10 knots upwards.

The wing can be totally inflatable, or with a rigid boom that can be attached, all while remaining in very small spaces.
