Wing Foil, the new freedom of surfing!

WHAT ACTUALLY IS WING FOIL?

Wing Foil or Foil Wing, as many also say, is a new fascination and type of surfing. It combines different types of surfing into a new water sport. A little bit of surfing, a little bit of windsurfing and a little bit of kitesurfing and the combination is perfect. In short, wingfoiling is like floating - my team and I were enthusiastic about the new sport from the start, which began to be known worldwide for the first time in 2019 and promises addictive freedom.
Although the first wingsurfers were already on Maui in the mid-80s, it is only now, thanks to the now further developed tube kites and, above all, thanks to the breakthrough of foils, that the subject of wingsurfing or wing foiling has become exciting today and could create the breakthrough become the water sports hype. For me and my team, it's already wing foiling.

HOW DOES WING FOIL WORK?

Wing Foil is explained simply: It is the combination of a wing, i.e. the wing that you hold in your hand and which, with the help of the wind, generates propulsion and lift. And then there is a surfboard that you ride on. In this case a board with a hydrofoil or, for short, a foil. The foil is basically nothing more than a wing that is mounted under your surfboard and starts to rise like an airplane at a certain speed in the water. The surfboard comes out of the water with you and from this point on you are foiling, more precisely foiling the wing.

FIRST WING FOIL SCHOOL

PLANET ALLSPORTS IS THE FIRST SURF AND KITE SCHOOL ON LAKE GARDA, BOAVISTA AND SOMA BAY THAT WING FOIL OFFERED AND DEVELOPED ITS OWN TRAINING CONCEPT FOR.

We are convinced that wing foiling is clearly a water sport for EVERYONE, as it is easy to learn with the right conditions and is a lot of fun. Regardless of whether you are an absolute newcomer to water sports without previous wind and water knowledge or as an experienced windsurfer, kiter or hydrofoiler, with the new trend, especially for the weaker wind days, you have many advantages:

  • 1. Low material expenditure, unlike windsurfing or kiting you need a lot less wings,
    with one wing you can already cover a very large wind range
  • 2. The foil makes wing foiling a lot of fun even in very light winds.
  • 3. The workout for the whole body is enormous and yet it is not weight training and is easy to do even for light and small people.
  • 4. The risk of injury when wing foiling is just as low as when windsurfing.
  • 5. Unlike kitesurfing, you don't need much space and you don't need the help of others to get started.

    Basically, you can wing foil almost anywhere, even on very small lakes, and it's really fun even in light and gusty winds.

OUR WING FOIL TRAINING METHOD -
FROM BEGINNER TO WING FOIL SURFER IN JUST 4 STEPS

We have developed a 4-stage training concept especially for wing foiling that will get you to "float" or "fly" over the water quickly and safely. The training program is based on the current training concepts for windsurfing and kitesurfing, specializing in wing foiling. Your safety and your learning success are our top priority.

We train you in various intermediate steps and bring you closer to wing foiling, building block by building block. So you can fully focus on one topic and learn quickly, e.g. B. dealing with the wing or mastering the foil. After a short time we bring all the building blocks together and you will fly over the water with the wing foil. Like all other courses, the Wing Foil course is individually tailored to your level and your learning progress. For example, if you can already foil with your windsurf board, we may even skip the foiling module.

  • 1st step (wing handling):
    After a short theory and the most necessary things you need to know about the wind and the water, you will learn how to use the wing in a short time.
    You learn how to carry the wing, steer it, turn it around and thus "catch" the wind
  • Step 2 (wing surfing):
    A short time later we go into the water fully equipped with neoprene, life jacket, wing and a large surfboard. Now you can refine the handling of the wing on the water and surf for the first time in light wind and smooth water. You will be surprised how quickly you make progress and how quickly you surf independently.
  • 3rd step (foiling):
    After the 1st and 2nd step we put the wing aside for a while and dedicate ourselves fully to the foil and the wonderful feeling of "flying" over the water silently. With the support of our motorboats, you can enjoy foiling for the first time without any wing or wind. At first it feels a bit shaky, but you will soon notice that the board is stabilizing.
  • 4th step (wing foiling):
    Now we put all the steps together, you will now learn to operate and control the wing on the foil board and you will soon be flying across the lake, driven by the wind all by yourself, without a motor and almost no noise, very easily and almost weightlessly. Now you are a wingfoil surfer! Congratulations !!
  • So what are you waiting for, now you can still be one of the first in the world to learn wing foil. 

NEW: Safety with BB TALKIN BLUETOOTH SYSTEM 

As with the kite courses or the advanced windsurfing courses, we use the latest technology and teach you with the Bb Talkin Bluetooth headset, so you can understand your teacher even better and communicate with him directly, very clearly, a huge advantage with the Training.

WING FOIL Material 

The leading windsurfing and kitesurfing manufacturers are currently overturning the development of new wings and wing foil boards. Initially, wave-foil SUPs were used for wing foiling. The advantage is the relatively large volume and the large area of the foil, which makes the board "fly" even at low speed. Depending on the level, you will quickly find that the board can also be a bit smaller. In the meantime, the boards are being developed more and more to meet the special needs of wing foiling and the first pure wing foiling boards are coming onto the market.
Since the beginning I have been testing wings and boards with my team to find out what is best for you at our wing foil schools on Lake Garda, on Boavista and in Soma Bay.

Choose between different models and brands and test together with us. At the moment you can test the wings from North Kiteboarding and Ozone with us and of course you can also rent them. With the boards you have different models of Quatro to choose from.
