Winging is the term often used for Wing Boarding & Wing Foiling. The “wing” is a kite- but without lines! It’s very similar in nature to a kiteboarding kite as you inflate both to give rigidity & shape. Unlike kiteboarding, the wing is held in your hands & not attached to the rider by a harness. This makes wing boarding much easier to learn and typically more safe.
Experience the thrill of riding across the water on your wing board by harnessing the power of the wind from your hand held wing!
What is the difference between Wing Boarding vs Wing Foiling ?
The difference is the board. Wing Boarding uses a large board similar to a stand-up paddleboard (image above). Wing Foiling uses a smaller board with a mast and large hydrofoil (image to the right).
Learning wing boarding is easy and fast. Most people can enjoy riding during their very 1st lesson! Wing Foiling is more extreme and typically takes numerous days to master.
Due to the large size of the board, you can easily stand (like a stand up paddle board) and won’t sink or feel unstable! This allows just about anyone to instantly have fun. Unlike kiteboarding, you don’t have to focus on a flying a kite with long lines that you are harnessed to or to master the water start on a small kiteboard. The wing board has a special fin configuration that allows you to track downwind & upwind and is very stable. Wing Boarding is all about learning to handle the “wing” handheld kite- without the more complicated issues of kiteboarding.
