Wing Foil Course Punta Trettu, Sardinia

The spots for wing foil courses, according with the wind directions, are Punta Trettu and the other spots in the South West Sardinia which guarantee safe and easy learning thanks good water conditions and constant wind.

The wing foil course is usually split in two hours per days and six hours is the average time for our students to do water start and the first glides. The wing foil course is structured in a way to encourage constant learning during lessons. By dividing it in blocks of two hours you will have the right time to learn all the skills while staying fresh and concentrated.

The firsts hours of the course are more static: you learn how to handle the wing, how to control your body position above the directional board and how to speed up. The last day instead is more dynamic: learning the process how to generate power with your foil and join the first glides.

The time required depends on the student’s knowledge, attitude, age and wind conditions. Some are able to stand up on the board and ride straight away, others may need to practice riding a little longer before to glide. Especially if you are already a kite foiler, kite surfer or windsurfer most of the beginners parts you processed already on your previous water sport, so understanding the wind and the board will be definitely easier.

Day 1 – First wing foil lesson

We start on land with the theory and a safety briefing and then get straight into the water. You exercise to control the wing and understand its power (by using a small size we ensure maximum safety). You learn how to control the wing with a small amount of power first, then learning how to generate more power will be the next step toward the water. The last step will be how to get on the inflatable board (S.U.P) and master a decent amount of power to proceed with your first ride.

Day 2 – Second wing foil lesson

Day two is all practical. We get straight in the water with the S.U.P. board and we learn how to go upwind, how to change the feet stances and how to change direction. During the second part instead, we discover the foil board (a smaller board with 65 cm length carbon fin), learning first how to keep the board flat and balance our weight in order to speed and discover the foil feeling.

Day 3 – Third wing foil lesson

Your third day mainly we work with the foil board. You understand how the generate more power combining the wing and the board, using a technique called “Pumping” will allow us to generate enough power to lift the foil up and enjoy your first unforgettable glide.
