What is Wing Foiling?

Wing Foiling is the art of riding a hydrofoil board while harnessing the wind’s power via a specialised handheld wing. Wing Foil Surfing is a relatively new sport that is quickly gaining popularity all over the world. It combines elements of surfing, kitesurfing, windsurfing, hydrofoiling, and wakeboarding to create a unique and thrilling experience!

How Does Wing Foil Surfing Work?

Wing foil surfing works by using a wing-shaped foil, which allows wing foil surfers to generate lift and stay on top of the waves. The foil’s lift and stability enable them to surf with more speed and power than ever before. Wing foil surfing is a great way to get an adrenaline rush and enjoy the waves in a new and exciting way.

What Do I Need To Get Started With Wing Foiling?

All you need to get started with wing foiling is a hydrofoil board, a wing, and a harness. The foil board is designed to provide stability and lift to allow you to take off above the water and surf above the surface, while the wing provides sensational power. The harness also helps you control the wing and keep it close to your body as you navigate the waves.

Wing foils come in a wide range of shapes and sizes. Your selection on which one to ride comes down to a few key factors, including your weight, ability, and the conditions you wish to surf in. Choosing the right board size for wing foiling is important. Foil boards should be large enough to provide enough lifting power and stability, but also small enough to be easily manoeuvrable to ensure a smooth and enjoyable ride. 

Foil boards make wing surfing much easier since they offer added volume to carry you through gusts and encourage early flight. Take a look at our range of wing surfboards here!

For the wind wing, this should be a suitable size to match your body weight and strength. It is also vital to choose a harness that is comfortable and fits snugly to ensure maximum safety whilst out on the water. Want to find out more about our range and accessories?
