¡Wing foil in Playa de Muro since 2021!
In WatersportsMallorca you have the chance to learn and practice this new and spectacular discipline from now on. There is no age limit, being a surfing style suitable for everyone, from the youngest to the oldest.
The Wing could be defined as a hybrid between a kite and a windsurfing sail. It is inflatable, very light and can be carried directly by hand, without the aid of a harness or any other support.
It is relatively easy to master the wing, and unlike more complex disciplines such as kitesurfing, wingsurfing allows us to start sailing the first meters in just 10 minutes, right after a short session of dry training.
The Wing will propel us on any sailing course and allow us the necessary maneuvers to go and come back with just a light breeze. We will use a Wingsurf boards with enough volume, so that there is a lot of buoyancy and ease. Thus, during the learning process with Wing, achieving balance will be much easier.
Once we have mastered the wing and can sail with a conventional board, we can move on to boards with a foil. The boards have a Foil embedded in the lower part of the stern. They will be boards with a volume of, for example, about 120 liters, so that we can float easily and stand up on it very comfortably.
The front wing of the foil is going to have a large area, more than 2000 square cm, to be able to lift us above the fuselage and wings with the minimum of speed. We recommend learning to get up first on the foil and sail being dragged by the motorboat, this is called Wake Foiling.
With this learning system, we shorten the time needed by the student to practice very easily starting, gliding and carving with the Foil, before using the Wing as a propulsion system. With the boat, navigation is made much easier, even for those who have never sailed in any other discipline.
At this point, the student is ready to start using the complete Wing Foil equipment and, with only 8 or 10 knots of wind, it is already possible to make the first flights over the sea!
Of course, as always at Watersportsmallorca, we offer you the best equipment with the latest materials, which offers maximum guarantee and safety. We also have a team of professional instructors who are constantly improving their level and are able to transmit it with the same enthusiasm with which they have learned it.
