Wingsurfing, and the more advanced wingfoiling, is the latest watersports craze to hit our waters. Unlike windsurfing, the wing isn’t attached to the board, but is still controlled by your hands whilst standing.

No previous watersports experience is necessary and you can learn the basics on a large windsurf board or windSUP (stand-up paddleboard). If you want to move to the next level, you'll need a dedicated wingfoiling board which has a foil attached. 

Find out more about our new scheme of progressive wingsurfing and wingfoiling courses below.
