Process and information

  • Meeting point: 1:30 pm, half an hour before the course starts at 2 pm.

    We have developed a training concept, especially for the Wing Foil that will get you “flying” over the water quickly and safely.

    • 1st step (Wing-Handling): after a short theory session on land and the most important things you need to know about the material, wind, and water, you will quickly learn how to handle the wing. You will learn how to carry the wing, steer it, turn it around, and use it to “catch” the wind
    • 2nd step (wing surfing): a short time later, we go into the water fully equipped with neoprene, a life jacket, a wing, and a large surfboard. Now you can perfect your handling of the wing on the water and surf for the first time in light winds and smooth water. You will be surprised how quickly you will make progress and be surfing independently after a short time.
    • 3rd step (foiling): after the 1st and 2nd steps, we put the wing aside for a while and devote ourselves entirely to the foil and the wonderful feeling of “flying” silently over the water. With the support of our motorboats, you can enjoy foiling for the first time without the wing and wind. It feels a little shaky at first, but you’ll soon notice that the board stabilizes.
    • Step 4 (Wingfoiling): now we are putting all the steps together, you are learning to handle and steer the wing on the foil board and will soon be flying over the sea powered by the wind all by yourself, without a motor and almost without noise, very light and almost weightless. Now you are a wingfoil surfer! Congratulations!
  • You don’t need your own equipment for the wingfoil course. Just bring your swimsuit, sun protection and something to drink. We will provide you with the following equipment during the course:

    • Wing
    • Wing board
    • Wetsuit
    • Helmet
    • Life jacket/ life vest
    • Shoes according to preference

    Your course unit lasts a total of 2 hours, of which you have 2 hours of pure water time.

  • You don’t need any special requirements or knowledge to learn wingfoiling. You just need to be able to swim safely and it is an advantage if you have a good sense of balance.

  • We recommend that you book a 3-day course, which is the average time you need to fly your first meters with the foil. If you need more course days, you can book them one day at a time at a reduced price. We also recommend that you take the VDWS Wingfoil license at the same time, as you will learn a little more about the rules of water sports and can show your level at any time if you want to rent wingfoil equipment from another school, for example. It is also an advantage from an insurance point of view if you have a “driving license”.

Further information and FAQ

We will be happy to answer any further questions you may have about the course and how to register for it.

  • Can I extend the course?

    If you have booked a course in advance at our pre-booking conditions, you are welcome to extend the course by the day at the end of the course, provided the teacher still has free capacity.

  • What do I do when there is no wind?

    If there is no wind, we try to postpone the course, so we recommend starting the course on the first day of your vacation to have the necessary buffer. If it is calm and you are unlucky with the wind, we will issue a voucher that is valid for one year and can be redeemed at all destinations.

  • What do I do when I am ill?

    If you fall ill during the course and are unable to attend, we will also try to postpone the course or alternatively issue a partial voucher that is valid for all destinations.
