WingFoil courses for beginners
If you want to start a WingFoil course and are a beginner or do not yet have the basic notions of Wing or navigating on a Foil, keep in mind that your first 2 hours with your instructor will be to learn these concepts. First, we will learn to fly the wing on the beach, understand the notions of wind and how to use the wing to generate more or less traction, depending on what we need at each moment.
Enjoying the wind of Tarifa is something incredible, and you will take advantage of it from the first minute of your Wing class.
We can teach WingFoil courses individually or in small groups. In a private WingFoil class, you will have faster progress, having an instructor exclusively with you helping and teaching you 100%. Keep in mind that in the private class, you can communicate with the instructor using a BbTalkin' radio helmet. You will also have a lot of fun. You can check the prices and availability on our website.
Intermediate-Advanced WingFoil courses
The advanced WingFoil course is the ideal option for those who want to take their experience to the maximum. No matter exactly what your level is, you can simply book at least 2 hours with any instructor and they will help you in the areas you need the most.
It is important to communicate your experience with your instructor after booking so they can provide the appropriate material for your WingFoil level. We usually teach Wing without the Foil on the board first and then add the foil when you have enough level.

Frequently asked questions
What are the types of WingFoil courses?
The basic package usually consists of 3 classes, 6 hours more or less in total (counting that they are private or semi-private). The minimum and normal are 2 hours per day, although there are students who choose to do 3 hours a day, especially if they are in good shape. To reach a level of total autonomy, the average is usually 8-10 hours of private or semi-private class.
A. 1 person, private WingFoil courseIn the private WingFoil class is where you learn faster and more safely, because you have the instructor's attention 100%. The instructor will be exclusively with you and will completely adapt to your needs and your level. Your WingFoil class includes a helmet radio communication system, where you can talk to your instructor at all times, even when you are in the water. It is the most recommended option if you want to learn WingFoil as quickly as possible or if you come alone.
B. 2 People, semi-private WingFoil courseIn the WingFoil class for 2 people, each student will have exclusive equipment throughout the class, and there will be an instructor with both students. Since the instructor will be teaching two people at the same time, both of you must have a similar level. In this class, you progress quite quickly but it is not as efficient as a private class. It is the most recommended option if you come with two people together, want to progress quickly and have a more economical class than the private one.
C. 3 - 4 People, group courseIn a class of 3 people, the price is quite more economical, it is usually approximately 45% cheaper than the private class, but the learning speed also decreases, because we have to share two Wing equipment among the three. It is likely that with this type of course you will need more time to learn, then we recommend attending 8 hours of class. If you don't want to share wings and learn more quickly, you will have to choose two different instructors, or book one class after the other.
At the moment the maximum number of students per instructor is 4. This class is much cheaper but keep in mind that we will only use the Wing equipment half the time of the class, although the other half you will be learning from your partner and helping him.
If you come in a group of more than 4 people or team building activity, contact us and we will organize all the logistics.
How many classes do I need to learn?
The progression in WingFoil always depends on the skill level of the students, and it is usually recommended to start with 3 days of classes, although some students may need 1 week or more to have good control before venturing to navigate independently, although it is always recommended to navigate with someone else once we navigate on our own in WingFoil. It should be noted that we have to learn how to use the Wing, use the Wing with a board without foil, and learn to fly on Foil once we have mastered all of this, we would normally do one of these three main exercises in each class.
Clearly, each person is different, there may be students who progress quickly and on the first day they can already go to the water with the board; similarly, there may be students who progress more slowly and on the second class they still have to practice a little more on land. In principle, a package of 6 hours distributed in 2 hours per day is the most normal, but we could change the distribution depending on the weather conditions and the skills of the students. Normally the classes are 2 hours, although sometimes there are students who want to do a little more and make classes of 3 hours. Another more intensive option is to do two 2-hour sessions in one day with a break between them. All always and when the weather conditions allow it. For classes we always recommend semi-private or private because you progress much more in these, students have a kite all the time and that is the reason for progressing more, a semi-private class consists of two students with a kite each and an instructor for the two.
What do WingFoil courses include?
- All necessary equipment (Wing, board, wetsuit, helmet, life jacket, etc.)
- Insurance (Accident and third party)
- Rescue boat service (on Levante days)
- Lots of fun!
What time are the classes?
That depends on the wind. We always look at the conditions in advance and we will let you know the exact time when we will start the classes. If the wind is from the West, classes usually start from 2 in the afternoon, and we usually have wind in the afternoon until 7-8 or until the wind drops. If it is Levante, the wind is usually present all day, so we usually start around 10-11.
On our website, you can choose the time of your classes, but keep in mind that they may be subject to change because we depend on the weather conditions.
Where are the WingFoil classes?
We usually teach on the beach of Los Lances norte, to the left of the Chiringuito Agua, which is where we have the rescue boats.
We also depend on the wind. Out of season we can do classes with Poniente on the beach next to the football field, or if there is a very strong Levante, we can also go to Palmones. Other times, depending on the wind conditions, we can go to other spots like Getares.
Do you use a communication system with walkie-talkie/radio for classes?
Yes, but only for private classes. We use the BBtalking headsets with communication for both instructor and student, so that you can not only hear what the instructor is telling you, but you can also talk to him and ask him questions. This makes your Wing course more productive and saves you time by receiving information from your instructor instantly.
What is your refund policy in case there is no wind?
As WingFoil depends on the wind, we cannot count on it 100% of the days, although in Tarifa it rarely fails us. Therefore, if the wind fails us during the class, the class stops and we wait until the wind comes back, or we reserve the hours that you missed for the next day or when it is convenient for you. If due to weather conditions you cannot enjoy the hours you have paid for, we will be happy to refund your money.
