Windfoil lesson

Get off to a flying start with a course of Windfoilen Netherlands

Learn guaranteed wind foiling

Learning wind foiling is like learning to ride a unicycle on a single-cycle. It’s still cycling, but balance and balance are becoming much more important. Experience shows that following a wind foiling course with good guidance, tips and tricks and you can quickly learn wind foiling. We give wind foil courses under the guidance of experienced and enthusiastic instructors. In small groups of up to 4 participants, you’ll receive expert instruction and guaranteed to learn wind foiling. You will learn with us on top material from Starboard (board and wind foils), with your own rigging. After a short introduction, you will take to the water with the instructor and make your first flight meters on the wind foil.

Flexible set up wind foil lessons

To ensure that the wind foil les also continues with few participants, we work with groups with a varying number of participants. You always pay the same lesson rate, only the lesson duration becomes longer as the number of participants increases. This way everyone gets the same amount of attention during class. The more participants, the longer you can practice with wind foiling. A win-win for everyone!

Tip for rigging during lessons

On average, wind foiling makes you use a sail that is 1 m2 smaller than you’re used to windsurfing. With wind force 4 you can already use a 6.5 m2 to get some great wind foils. In addition, learning to wind with a sail without cambers is the easiest. Keep this in mind if you bring your material for the lessons.

When booking a wind foil course you automatically agree with the terms and conditions of Windfoilen Nederland.
