¡WING FOIL IN PLAYA DE MURO SINCE 2021!
At WatersportsMallorca, you have the opportunity to learn and practice the exciting new discipline of Wing Foiling. There is no age limit, as it is a surfing style that is suitable for everyone, from the youngest to the oldest.
The Wing can be described as a hybrid between a kite and a windsurfing sail. It is inflatable, very lightweight, and can be carried by hand without the need for a harness or any other support.
Mastering the wing is relatively easy, and unlike more complex disciplines such as kitesurfing, wingsurfing allows us to start sailing the first few meters in just 10 minutes, right after a short session of dry training.
The Wing will propel us in any sailing direction and enable us to perform the necessary maneuvers to go and come back with just a light breeze. We will use Wingsurf boards with enough volume to provide buoyancy and ease, making it much easier to achieve balance during the learning process with the Wing.
Once we have mastered the Wing and can sail with a conventional board, we can progress to boards with a foil. The boards have a foil embedded in the lower part of the stern, with a volume of around 120 liters, allowing us to float easily and stand up very comfortably.
The front wing of the foil will have a large area, more than 2000 square cm, to lift us above the fuselage and wings with minimal speed. We recommend first learning to get up on the foil and sail being dragged by a motorboat, which is called Wake Foiling.
With this learning system, the time needed to practice starting, gliding, and carving with the foil is shortened 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!
As always at Watersportsmallorca, we offer the best equipment with the latest materials, providing maximum guarantee and safety.
