RYA Wingsurfing

About the course

Foiling has changed the watersports landscape entirely. The use of wing-power is actually one of the easiest and quickest methods of learning how to foil. Whether you want to cruise on flat water, venture into downwinders, race, learn tricks, or ride swell and waves, the sport and kit can take you there.

By the end of this course you will have a good understanding of the equipment used and recommended; how to launch and land safely as well as perform a self-rescue. You will also learn how to fly and control the wing on land initially, progressing to a board without a hydrofoil, before introducing a foil in the First Flights course, once ready.

What you’ll cover:

  • Equipment and set up
  • Launching and landing
  • Sailing techniques and manoeuvres
  • Foiling knowledge
  • Theory session
