eXperience flight, eXperience foil £70
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.
The foil eXperience is a 2 hour session where we will provide you with tips and tricks to help you unlock your inner gyroscope and allow you to experience the sensation we can’t describe. You will be accompanied for the whole time so help and guidance are always immediately available.
We currently have the two most affordable foils on the market to let you try and decide on your favourite. The session will be primarily on one type with a turn on the other so that you can compare notes.
Both foils are available to order should you require one.
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.
Using your own sail will help with familiarity. We can discuss your quiver prior to the session in order to agree the best match for you, the foil and the conditions.
Lessons are available to book in advance. Please contact us via the contact use page.
Ideal learning conditions are wind speeds between 12 and 20mph.
Sessions will not run in sustained windspeeds of over 20 mph.
