Wing foil

What is wing foil ?

The Wingfoil is a new practice that redefines a new way of moving on the water, or more precisely above the water. Once out of the water, the foil and its low need of power allows us to continue to fly… Because now, we often say that we fly above the water.

Wing and Foil are currently very trendy and are a perfect combination to discover a new way of riding and new sensations. It is a synthesis between windsurfing, kitesurfing and surfing. It has its advantages and disadvantages but it is an ultra striking concept.

The total cancellation of power is a big advantage in terms of safety and an asset in surfing, there is no “risk” component as in kitesurfing and the set-up is less constraining. Again compared to kitesurfing, the start can be made from almost anywhere, and without outside help.

This new marriage between technology and renewable energy opens up entirely new perspectives.

Who is wing foil for ?

Some will prefer to go for a cruising ride, while others will opt for the open sea to ride the swell or even the beach to ride the waves. Once you’ve got your wing in the wave, in a neutral position, it will float in the air like a bird, the pressure of the water will do the rest. While the more experienced riders will take their momentum on the crest of the waves to send the most committed tricks!

In short, Wingfoil can be used at your convenience, depending on your level, your desires and the conditions available to you… it seems to be the easiest way (all things considered) to learn to foil.

Finally, and above all, we would be tempted to say, contrary to what we might have thought, it is relatively accessible, Wingfoil is neither a power sport nor a speed sport, and its symbolism is very strong.

It invites you to a different way of sailing. So it’s up to you!
