Wing foil lesson

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

Learn guaranteed to wing foil

We give wingfoil courses under the guidance of experienced and enthusiastic instructors. In small groups you will receive expert instructions and you will lay the basics of wingfoiling in at least 2 lessons! We are using the best equipment from Starboard (board and wingfoils) with Airush and Ensis Wings and Wingfoils. A wing foil course consists of 2 different lessons:

  1. Wing Surfing
  2. Wing Foiling

During the Wing Surfing lesson you will learn how to use the wing and you will learn to pump effectively to be able to make sufficient speed. During the Wing Foiling lesson you will learn how to get on the foil quickly and how to wing foil in a stable way. The number of lessons you need depends on your background. Do you have questions or do you want advice on what is best for you? Call or email us.

It is possible to follow the wingsurf and wing foil lesson on the same day. Between the 2 lessons there is a 1 hour break. If you want both lessons on the same day, please report this on the registration form. Please note that the lessons are very intensive. Taking both lessons is only recommended if you are in good condition and you are at least a good windsurfer (minimum funboard).

Up to 4 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 get the best out of the wing foil lessons During the lessons, each participant takes to the water with their own wingfoil gear. To ensure that the wingfoil lessons continue with few participants, we work with groups with a varying number of participants. You always pay the same class rate, only the duration of the lesson increases 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 wing foiling. A win-win for everyone!

What if there’s too little or too much wind?

The wind foil lessons continue when the wind forecast is between 8 and 24 knots. If the wind expectation is less or more, we cancel the lesson. We will let you know by e-mail the evening before the lesson (around 18:00) whether the lesson will take place. If the lesson does not take place, we will schedule a new lesson.

Important:

In order to start right away, it is important that you already have your wetsuit on before the lesson starts. You can change in the changing rooms of the water sports centre and after the lesson you can shower. If you don’t have a wetsuit yourself, you can rent it from us.

The location in Almere on the Gooimeer ideal for wingfoilen

The location where the wing foil courses are held is ideal for wing foiling. We can go into the water via a sandy beach and after about 20 meters it is deep enough to get on and sail away. The Gooimeer is sufficiently deep everywhere and there is enough space to wingfoil unhindered. Our address is: Gooimeerdijk West, Surfstrand Haven 2 in Almere Haven. Check out the current images via the webcam here.

Free parking on the surf beach

On the Gooimeerdijk at the surf beach there is sufficient parking space for car and possibly a surf trailer or caravan. The good news is that parking is FREE!
