Learn and have fun with the Experts
Wingsurfing is a new sport which we started to offer in 2022. It’s like windsurfing, but instead of a mast holding the sail, the sail inflates and you hold onto it (with a leash too!). It’s a unique sensation a bit like flying, and the feeling of the wind lifting your sail is thrilling.
We’ve had all sizes, ages and shapes trying wingsurfing, and everyone loves it. You don’t need to be super-fit, just able to get yourself back on the board when you fall in (and you will).
A great crossover from windsurfing and sailing, if you have some idea of how the wind works, you’ll be off in no time. If you’re used to surfing or paddleboarding, you’ll have the balance you need as well.
We use windsurfing boards and have a range of brand new F-One sails in sizes to suit everyone.
The session starts with a bit of theory, then you will head to the beach to practice using your sail on land. This gives you a feel for how it all works. Then you’ll get onto the water in a nice sheltered area and practice going back and forth across the wind on your knees, then getting to your feet. Most students manage this nicely by the end of the two hours – but you will definitely be tired!
