We’re still allowed to teach wing foil. We do that safely and Corana proof. Read here what measures we take to provide safe lessons

Learn guaranteed wingfoilen

We give wingfoil courses under the guidance of experienced and enthusiastic instructors. In small groups of up to 4 participants you will receive expert instructions and learn to wingfoil in at least 2 lessons, where you will make your first flight meters garnished! You will learn top material from Starboard (board and wingfoils) with Airush and Ensis Wings.

The wingfoil course consists of the lessons:

  1. WingSurfing
  2. WingFoilen

During the Wingsurfing lesson you will learn how to use the wing and learn how to pump effectively. During the WingFoilen lesson you will learn how to get on the foil quickly and how to wingfoil in a stable way. After you have taken these 2 different lessons, you will receive a guarantee from us that you can wingfoil. Do you have questions or do you want advice on what is best for you? Call or email us..

Lessons 1 and 2 on the same day

If you want to take both classes, it is possible to do this 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.

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

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 wingfoiling. A win-win for everyone!

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

If the wind forecast is between 8 and 24 knots, the lessons will normally continue. If the wind expectation is less or more, we cancel the lesson. We will send you a message by SMS or email about this the night before class (around 6:00 p.m.) and plan a new date.

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.

Anyone can master wing foiling with a little practice. There is no need for windsurfing, foiling or kiting. However, we do know from experience that people without windsurfing and/or wind foiling experience often need multiple wing surfing and wingfoil lessons to master it properly.

Skills that help to learn to wingfoil quickly are;

  • Experience with windsurfing and/or wind foiling
  • A good sense of balance
  • Experience with sailing sports (wind feeling)
  • Good condition
  • A swimming diploma

Estimate how many lessons I need?

  • If you can wind foil and/or are a good windsurfer, then in most cases you will have enough of 1 WingSurfles and 1 WingFoilles
  • If you can’t windsurf, you often need 2 WingSurf lessons and 2 WingFoil lessons
  • In addition, your own weight plays a role. People under 80/85 kg learn it more easily than people who weigh heavier.

The location in Almere on gooimeer ideal for wingfoilen

The location where the wingfoil courses are held is ideal for wingfoiling. 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.

Free parking on the surf beach

On the Gooimeerdijk on the surf beach there is enough parking for car and possibly a surf trailer or caravaan. The good news is that parking is FREE!
