Wingskate clinicGet off to a flying start with a clinic from Windfoilen Nederland
Wing skating spectacular for everyone
Wingskaten is a nice new form of wingfoilen, but on a longboard (a kind of skateboard). The wing you use ensures that with the least wind already gets a lot of momentum. With a little sense of balance, you can master wing skating. With a clinic of Windfoilen Nederland you get tips and trics under the guidance of professional instructors to get the hang of wingskaten quickly and safely. Before you know it, you’re already making the most beautiful moves!
In small groups of up to 4 participants you will receive expert instructions and you will be guaranteed to master the wingskating. You’re going to be up to us on top material from Starboard X Airush, Ensis Wings and Atom Longboards. Of course, we also make helmets and knee pads available for extra safety. The wingskate clinics will continue if there are at least 2 participants.
Cost and duration of wingskate clinic per participant
The cost per participant for a clinic of 1.5 hours is € 45,-. The use of the wingskate and protection material is of course included.
Each participant’s own wingskate set
With us everyone gets their own wingskate set during the clinic, so you can work 1.5 hours without waiting.
Location of wingskate clinics
The location where the clinics are held depends on the wind and wind direction, but are always located in or near Almere. The final location will be communicated by mail no later than the evening.

- Saturday and Sunday
- Wednesday and Friday afternoon

- Noon clinic: 14:00 (weekend and Wednesday and Friday)
Make sure you wear solid/sturdy and easy-to-sit clothing and shoes with good grip (preferably sneakers).
Up to 4 people per group
In our groups, up to 4 people participate in the clinics at the same time. This allows us to give everyone enough attention to learn windskating in a good way.
If the wind forecast is between 7 and 16 knots, the lessons will normally continue. If the wind forecast is less or more, we cancel the clinic. We will send you a message by SMS or e-mail the evening before the clinic (around 18:00) and plan a new date with you. We therefore communicate what will be the final location of the clinic.

- You will be given theoretical instruction on how to hold the wing

Tip for proper clothing
Make sure you put on easy seated and sturdy clothing. Also, make sure you put on shoes that have a lot of grip, preferably sneakers. Even though you get warm quickly, we still advise you to dress warmly. In cold weather you can also wear thin (fleeche) gloves to keep your hands warm.
