Set up clinics wind foiling during step up days

Especially for the wind foil boarding day, we organize various wind foil clinics both in the morning and afternoon for which you can register.

Times wind foil clinics during wind foil step up day

  • Clinic 1: start 10:30 am to 12:00 pm
  • Clinic 2: start 13:00 to 14:30
  • Clinic 3: start 15:00 to 16:30

Important:

To be able to start right away, it is important that you already have your wetsuit on before the start of the clinic and that you have already rigged your sail. Consult with the instructor in advance what a suitable sail is for the clinic.

Rent rigging, suit and shoes

You follow the clinic with your own rigging! If you do not have suitable rigging, you can rent it from us for only € 21,-. You can also rent a suit and shoes for only € 7.50. Indicate this when booking the clinic, and we will reserve this for you.

Maximum number of people per group

In our groups, up to 4 people participate in the lessons at the same time. This allows us to give everyone enough attention to master the wind foiling.

Cancellation clinics

If the wind expectation is between 10 and 20 knots, the clinics continue. If the wind expectation is less or more, we unfortunately have to cancel the clinics. We will let you know by e-mail the evening before the clinic (around 18:00) whether the clinics will take place.

Set-up of the wind foil clinic:

  • Start with explanations about the operation of wind foils
  • You will be instructed about your posture during wind foiling and how you will fly
  • Most of the lessons take place naturally on the water, where you learn;
    • How to get your board up in the air as soon as possible
    • How to keep stability during wind foiling
    • How to make an emergency stop (very important to learn, flying is something very different than planning :))

We’ll give you the guarantee that you’re making the 1st flight meters on the wind foil. You can stick to that!

The group consists of up to 5 participants. The instructor goes up the water with you and guides you on the water. Wearing a helmet is mandatory during the clinics. The use of a helmet is included in the price.

Tip for rigging during lessons
On average, wind foiling makes you use a sail that is 1 m2 smaller than you’re used to on your surfboard. 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. Please note this when you bring your own material for the wind foil step-up day.
