Discover WING Session (WING-SURFING)

Start Winging with QM's Discover-Wing Sessions. 

This introductory session offers a foundational understanding of winging, divided into two main segments: Flying the Wing Ashore and Getting Afloat. These sessions focus on mastering the basics of wing control, harnessing its power for forward movement and steering.

Additionally, they reinforce essential skills such as board balance, enabling participants to navigate short distances across the wind, execute gybes, and return to their starting point confidently.


Try Wingfoiling 3

Try Wingfoiling

Early Wingfoiling Sessions with Simon Winkley Marine - These 2¼ hour sessions are designed for either:
  • experiencing wingfoiling for the first time
  • having a follow-on experience from your initial wingfoiling experience
The minimum level required to participate is: ‘able to use a wing to a level of basic competence and stay up wind on a non-foiling board’. We will cover basic foiling technique, aiming to get the board up and out of the water.
There will be 3 people on each session with 2 sets of foiling kit. Participants will rotate between being on a foiling board and being in a powerboat with the instructor. The person resting in the powerboat will be coached by the instructor whilst observing the progress of the others on the foil boards. There will be enough rotations to give everyone a valuable learning experience. In the event of lighter, non-foiling winds on the day, sessions will still run on the larger foiling boards to work on skills such as tacking, gybing, riding switch (toeside) etc.
