Learn how to Wingfoil

We will teach how to how to wingfoil starting from the basics.

Theory part:
you will learn which equipment you need, the parts of the wing, the board and foil, the wind theory, safety and spot check.

Then we will go straight to the practice part. Starting at the beach, you will learn how to hold the wing, how to create drag and how to depower.
You will learn the first steps on a SUP, understanding then the balance, first from the knees  and then how to stand up.
Once you master the balance and power of the wing on the SUP, you will learn much faster to stand on a wingfoil board with a foil underneath and do the first take offs.

Our lagoon is also unique in El Gouna, as even during low tide we still have good water depth to kitesurf safely, allowing our guests to get out and have a session anytime during the entire day.

There is a high and low tide every 12 hours with up to 80cm difference in water depth between them. We have thousands of square meters of soft, sandy bottom flat water off of our beach, so there is always somewhere to find a safe depth for your experience. Come and kite in el Gouna with us!
