What is wing foiling?


Wing foiling is a new and exciting water sport that involves riding a specialized board and foil across the water, powered by a large inflatable wing.

The wing is held by the rider and used to generate wind power, which is then transferred to the foil, providing lift and propulsion.

The sport combines elements of windsurfing, kitesurfing, and surfing to create a unique and thrilling experience.

Wing foiling is performed on a board that is smaller and more compact than a traditional windsurfing board. The boards are designed to be hydrodynamic and stable.

The board is attached to a foil, which is a wing-shaped device that generates lift and propulsion by moving through the water.

The rider holds onto the wing with or without a harness. He steers it to generate lift and propulsion, allowing them to ride across the water and perform tricks and stunts.

Wing foiling is a versatile sport that can be performed in a variety of wind and water conditions. Making it accessible to people with varying levels of experience in water sports.

It is a relatively new sport that is constantly evolving, attracting people who are interested in new and exciting experiences.
