Wingfoil beginner course

As a beginner in wingsport you attend this course in order to change to our advanced courses. You only attend this course on the first day. On the following days you continue with the advanced courses. In the beginner course you learn the theoretical basics of winging and handling. The course fee includes the wing equipment with neoprene, liability insurance and the VDWS wing workbook. Group courses start daily, are full day and last from 11:00 to 14:00. Semi-private and private courses may start at other times.

Requirements for wingfoiling
The requirements to learn how to wingfoil are not great. You just need to be able to swim and have a minimum level of physical fitness. Previous knowledge of board sports (surfing, snowboarding, wakeboarding, wakesurfing, skateboarding etc) is an advantage, but not necessary. The slightly lower water temperature in Lake Silvaplana is almost imperceptible thanks to the neoprene equipment. The equipment is included in the course price.
Book wing courses as a company event or group occasion

We also offer individual courses for large groups and companies. Here you can find more information about our group offers.
