Wing Foil Lessons in Nelson, NZ

Wingfoiling – some call it wingsurfing or winging- is the ultimate water sport as it combines kitesurfing and suping into one fun sport- the wing adding a new dimension. Just wing it!!

You will start off learning how to control the wing on a high volume Wing foil board. Once you feel comfortable we will introduce the hydrofoil which will give you the ultimate feeling of flying or gliding above the water.  Light to medium winds are enough, the more advanced riders can get going in really light conditions. It is simple, safe and fun!

Lesson structure will cover the following:

  • Setup, secure and pack down the wing
  • Safety on the beach and in the water
  • Handling wing on the beach, controlling the power of the wind in the wing
  • Enter/exit water with wing and board (without hydrofoil)
  • Self-rescue
  • Ride on your knees
  • Ride standing, feet positioning, speed control with wing positioning
  • Ride upwind/downwind
  • Foot change/ Riding in both directions
  • Jibes/ Tacks
  • Introducing the hydrofoil, a great test of your balance but the ultimate feeling gliding above the water!!

We will supply everything needed for the lesson- the wing, board, wetsuit, impact vest and helmet- just get in touch and wing it!!
