Wing Foil Boarding lessons
Wing foil boarding uses a relatively large board (90L- 160L) with a mast and hydrofoil. Engage the foil by building speed and lift to fly ‘above’ the water.
We suggest that you learn how to Wing Board on a SUP before learning to Wing Foil Board.
We offer Wing Boarding Packages that start with wing boarding and end with learning to ride a wing foil board.

Wing Foiling Boarding
Wing foil boarding is quickly becoming as popular as kiteboarding- especially for those already riding a kite foil board. Incredible breakthroughs in equipment have birthed the new sport of Wing Foiling. The difference between wind boarding and wind foiling is the board. Both use the same handheld “wing” to harness the wind’s power in order to get propelled across the water.
However, foil boards (or Hydrofoil boards) have a mast & “wing”. As you pick up speed, the hydrofoil or “foil” creates lift allowing you and the board to rise above the water.
Minimal resistance & effortless cruising
Experience the feeling of flying as the foil lifts you above the water. The smooth & silent movement of the foil slicing through the water is nothing short of amazing.
Light Wind Alternative
Wing Foil Boarding is quickly taking over as a low-wind alternative to kiteboarding. The foil is more efficient and creates less drag, which means you can effortlessly cruise upwind in much less wind than kiteboarding on a twintip.
More Places to Wing
No long lines to set up on the beach, no space needed for a kite to fly up into the air and no need for someone to ‘launch & land’ your kite. The has opened up many beaches across the world for wing foiling- where kiteboarding is not possible due to trees, rocks, or limited space to launch & land.
Wing Foiling is the most new & exciting wind sport that is quickly gaining popularity due to it’s simplicity.
Group Dynamics – Means Learning Faster!
Kiteboarding takes a great deal of multi tasking. Kite Provo Instructors have been trained to master the art of group dynamics. Keeping the entire group engaged and switching the kite back and forth every few moments.
This combines visual and tactile learning for a very powerful combination. Almost all of our students say the break through moments came when they tried and then watched someone else to identify how to improve themselves.
Kite Provo instructors engage everyone in the course all the time while sharing the equipment. This creates learning opportunities all the time. The group dynamics environment accelerates the learning process by providing frequent mental and physical breaks in combination with practice.
