Would you like to try and learn windfoiling, but are not ready to invest in a brand new windfoil board and foil?
You are for sure not the only one, but we have a solution for all of you who want to give windfoiling a try: Take a windfoil coaching course and test those unbelievable flying sensations before you eventually decide to buy your own equipment.
Windfoil equipment is still very expensive and it’s just normal to think twice before buying a windfoil quiver for more than €2000 without even knowing if it’s something you will enjoy doing.
On that point, we should definitely warn you: windfoiling is purely addictive, and you may never stop when you have first started! Cruising half a meter above the water in silence and twice as fast as the wind is going to change your views on light wind windsurfing forever.
There are several windfoil schools and windfoil rentals popping up all around the world, and Windfoil Zone has now started to build a complete windfoil directory, showing all the great spots where you can try and learn windfoiling near you. Check it out!
Windfoil Xperience week in Roses, Spain: May27th - June 3rd
THE WINDFOIL XPERIENCE AT ION CLUB - GOLF DE ROSES
One of the school we highly recommend this month is the ION Club – Golf de Roses in Spain / Costa Brava. The school is driven by Nora and Ronan who are both experienced windfoilers.
They organise a special “Windfoil Xperience” week from May 27th to June 3rd 2018, where William Huppert, world cup competitor and expert foiler, will give you advanced tips and tricks to learn windfoiling the right way.
A minimum level of windsurfing is needed to participate (water start, foot straps), but don't worry, windfoiling is not difficult to learn, especially when coaches tell you the dos and don'ts.
