Learning wind foiling is like learning to ride a unicycle on a single-cycle. Wind foiling is still a form of windsurfing, but balance and equilibrium are becoming much more important. Experience shows that most learn to wind foil quickly and safely by following a wind foil introduction. We wind foil introduction lessons are given by experienced CWO certified 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 equipment from Starboard and Severne (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. To learn how to wind foil, it is necessary to be able to windsurf. We expect you to be able to plane on a funboard at a minimum. You need these skills to learn how to wind foil.

Our teaching and testing locations

Windfoilen Nederland uses 2 locations where the lessons are given and where wind foil and wingfoil material can be tested by appointment. The location where the lesson or test appointment takes place is determined based on the wind forecast and wind direction.

Location Gooimeer Almere Haven

Our ‘home base’ spot. With the most wind conditions and wind directions, the activities take place in Almere on the Gooimeer.

The water is deep enough everywhere to foil safely. Via a sandy beach you can easily get on the water.

You can also use the changing room and showers of the windsurfing club. There is enough space to park (for free).

Address: Gooimeer Almere Haven: Gooimeerdijk West, Surfstrand Haven 2, 1353 CT Almere Haven.

Lesson location Almere Haven nw logo
Lesson location Tulpeiland Zeewolde nw logo

Location: Tulpeiland Zeewolde

This location in Zeewolde is an ideal location where foiling is very good with wind directions from North to Southeast. You can easily enter the water via a sandy beach of about 20 meters wide.

Due to a breakwater 100 meters from the shore, the water is almost always flat. Ideal for learning wing foiling or wind foiling. At this location it is sufficiently deep everywhere for wing- or wind foiling.

At this location there is plenty of (free) parking space.
