Wind wing

If you ask any kiter who is wind winging, most of them will end up saying that it is their new passion. Wind winging is a modern style of prone surfing and windsurfing, incorporating an inflatable wing and a large board with a hydrofoil underneath. This course is perfect for anyone with previous experience in water sports, snow sports or wind sports and/or for gifted fast-learning individuals.

For those who have limited to no previous experience or who simply want very thorough training, we recommend the Intensive Basic Course.
