    Wing Foil Lesson​

    What is wing foiling ?

    Wing foiling is an exciting wind-powered water sport that’s growing fast. It involves using an inflatable, triangular sail known as the “wing” to catch the wind. Holding onto the wing by its two handles allows you to control your movement. Let go of the back handle to stop instantly, and grab it again to start moving and regain power.

    Beneath your feet, you’ll stand on a big board that keeps you afloat. This board is connected to a meter-long mast, which is itself attached to a hydrofoil. The hydrofoil, resembling to an underwater airplane, lifts the mast and board from the water surface, creating a sensation of flying !

    With practice, you’ll be gliding smoothly and enjoying the unique thrill that wing foiling provides.
