More information about our wing lessons read here:

Level 1

By the end of this lesson, the student should be able to,

  • understand sailing terms and fundamentals and safety concerns in a wind sport environment
  • walk in all directions left, right, upwind, downwind, while keeping the wing from catching wingtips on the ground
  • Goal is to experience our first rides on a SUP board to experience riding downwind in the water on knees and feet

Level 2

By the end of this lesson the student should be relatively comfortable, controlling speed and sailing direction through wing control and weight distribution on the board

Goal for the student would be to use their skills to sail themselves to a predetermined downwind destination.

Level 3

By the end of this lessons the student should understand foil fundamentals, be able to manage speed and sailing directions on knees on board with a foil. Understand how to stand up while keeping the board flat on the water and slowly increase speed to engage the foil, and safely fall if things start to go wrong.

Level 4

By the end of this lessons the student should be able to stand up and engage the foil efficiently fall safely, speed up and slow down while on foil and begin to foil on upwind angles.

Start to understand jibe transitions and have their first attempts. Goal would be to have the student use everything they have learned so far, to sail to a pre-determined cross or upwind location.

Level 5

At this level the student goal should be to move towards a independent practice. Before they set off on their own the student should be able to wing upwind and downwind to predetermined locations and manage river traffic. Begin to approach jibes on foil and attempt their first tacks.

Ride toe side and heel side and switch feet. Goal would be to explore more of the river and begin to experiment with swell riding and higher-level equipment/smaller foil board.

Level 6

Like any outdoor adventure sport wing thingin’ is “a tree”. We all must learn the fundamentals that form the trunk as we climb towards independence.

Once we have the skills to leave and return to our lunch point. We are able to explore limits and “climb individual branches” and specialize in specific disciplines that fulfill our personal desires. No matter if you love to go fast, desire to ride endless waves, aim to be a carving magician, want to ride smaller boards that feel more like a magic carpet than a battleship, or boost to the moon. We can help coach you achieve your goals while providing safety and support.
