foil hire £30 per hour
Foiling is the newest innovation in windsurfing and it promises to elevate your windsurfing to the next level [about 3ft higher]. The primary reason to get foiling is the pure unadulterated thrill it provides. Many have tried but no one has succeeded in describing the sensation. You have to try it to understand.
The other advantage it brings to the table is the ability to get planing [flying] with less sail. By providing more lift from the wings of the foil and less drag once the hull of the board lifts, it is possible to fly at twice the wind speed in less than 11 knots.
The process of learning to foil is steep. The first moments of flight are quickly followed by a huge splash but, after only a few hours on the foil, the length of sustained flight greatly improves and you begin to understand it.
To try foiling you must be comfortable using footstraps at planing speeds.
We advise that you wear a buoyancy aid or impact vest and a helmet.
We insist that you wear wet boots.
