FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How long will it take to learn?

This will depend on what previous experience you have with other wind sports and how long it takes you to learn something new.

Give us a quick call to see which would be best or book onto the wing intro lesson to see how you get on before booking a package.

From our experience, these are the approximate times to become independent:

Kite Foiler : 2-3 Lessons

Windsurfer : 2-3 Lessons

No Experience : 5-6 Lessons

Is winging hard to learn and do I need to be strong?

Winging learning curve is exponential. The more lessons you get in, the easier it will be. After 3 wing lessons you will master the basics.

You dont need to be strong to learn to wing, but climbing onto the board and holding onto the inflatabe will make you tired after 2 hours.

What do I need to bring?

All equipment is included, but you can bring the below:

  • A surfing wetsuit, if you prefer to use your own
