Most frequent questions and answers

On the surface, wingsurfing and wingfoiling may appear similar, but they are distinct disciplines within the realm of water sports.

Wingsurfing is often the initial step into this world. In wingsurfing, you learn to control a handheld wing, but the activity is performed on a regular windsurf board that has a lot of volume. This larger board provides greater stability and buoyancy, making it easier for beginners to maintain balance while they focus on mastering the wing. It’s an excellent way to get accustomed to the dynamics of using the wing without the added complexity of balancing on a foil.

Wingfoiling, on the other hand, takes the experience to a new level. Here, you transition to a smaller board equipped with a hydrofoil—a fin-like attachment underneath the board. When you gain enough speed, the hydrofoil lifts the board out of the water, reducing drag and allowing for a smoother, faster ride that feels like flying over the water. This requires more skill and balance, as you have to manage the lift from the foil and maintain control over the wing simultaneously. The sensation and techniques in wingfoiling are quite different and more advanced compared to wingsurfing.

In summary, while both sports involve a handheld wing, wingsurfing is more about learning wing control on a stable, buoyant board, whereas wingfoiling is about combining that wing mastery with the skill of balancing on a hydrofoil for an exhilarating, high-speed experience.

Wing Foiling is an innovative and dynamic water sport that merges elements from both windsurfing and kitesurfing. Its unique character comes from the use of a handheld wing and a board equipped with a hydrofoil, allowing the board to lift off the water surface and glide through the air. This offers an almost gliding experience, quite different from traditional water sports. Wing Foiling provides a special freedom as it eliminates the need for complex rigs or lines. The sport has gained rapid popularity due to its accessibility and the relatively quick learning curve, making it appealing for both beginners and experienced water sports enthusiasts. Whether you are a passionate water sports practitioner or a curious newcomer, Wing Foiling offers an exciting way to explore and enjoy the sea.

“Starting with Wing Foiling requires a focus on both the right equipment and fundamental skills. Beginners are recommended to start with a larger, more stable board and a bigger wing for better control and stability. A wing size in the range of 4.0 to 6.5 square meters is ideal for beginners. It’s also important to choose a hydrofoil that’s designed for beginners, with a lower aspect ratio and a stable wing profile. One of the most critical aspects of learning Wing Foiling is safety, so it’s advisable to take lessons from a qualified instructor. This will not only accelerate your learning process but also ensure that you learn the correct techniques and avoid common mistakes. Start by practicing on flat water in mild wind conditions, and focus on developing good balance and control over the wing before moving to more challenging conditions.”

Wing Foiling can be practiced in a wide range of wind conditions, but beginners are recommended to start in wind speeds between 10-15 knots (about 5-8 m/s). This wind strength provides sufficient power to lift the board, yet is still gentle enough to allow easy control and maneuvering of the wing. It’s also important to consider the wind direction; ideally, beginners should practice in consistent wind conditions with few or no gusts. As you become more experienced, you will be able to adapt your equipment and techniques to handle a broader range of wind conditions, including lighter and stronger winds. Always remember to assess the wind and weather conditions before entering the water to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.

Wing Foiling, like any other water sport, involves certain risks, but these can be minimized with proper preparation and equipment. Safety begins with choosing the right equipment; an appropriate size and shape of the wing and a board designed specifically for wing foiling are crucial. A helmet and a life jacket should always be worn as they can prevent serious injuries in case of unexpected falls.

Learning and respecting the basic safety rules is key. It is highly recommended to start with lessons from certified instructors who can introduce you to the safest practices and help build your confidence on the water. It’s important to start in mild wind conditions and avoid crowded areas until you are comfortable and have control over your wing and board.

A thorough understanding of wind and weather conditions is crucial. Learn to assess conditions and understand when it is safe to practice. Beginners should avoid extreme weather conditions like strong wind or stormy weather. Remember, as with all sports, your safety increases with your experience and skill.

Having the correct equipment is essential for a safe and enjoyable Wing Foiling experience. Start by choosing a wing that suits your size and the local wind range. Larger wings in the size range of 4.0 to 6.5 square meters are generally better for beginners, as they are more stable and easier to handle. A wing with a flatter shape and lower aspect ratio will also be more stable, but may be slower and less responsive.

Careful consideration should be given to the choice of board. A board specifically designed for Wing Foiling with a foil track and appropriate weight capacity is crucial. For beginners, a larger and more stable board, like a SUP or windsurf board, is easier to learn on.

The hydrofoil should be beginner-friendly, with a low aspect ratio and a stable wing shape. A removable mast can be a good option, as it makes transport and storage easier. Remember, the equipment should be individually tailored, so seek advice from experienced wing foilers or instructors before purchasing.

The comparison of difficulty between Wing Foiling, windsurfing, and kitesurfing is subjective and varies from person to person. Wing Foiling is a relatively new sport that combines elements from both windsurfing and kitesurfing, as well as surfing. The uniqueness of Wing Foiling lies in its combination of the challenges and skills of these sports.

For someone with experience in windsurfing or kitesurfing, the transition to Wing Foiling might be easier. These sports share certain fundamental principles, such as understanding wind and water dynamics. However, Wing Foiling has its own unique challenges, such as balancing on a foil and controlling a handheld wing.

On the other hand, Wing Foiling can be seen as a more accessible entry point for those new to the world of water sports. Taking a course is generally always a good idea, so you have all the information you need regarding safety, as well as the right techniques to develop your learning curve quickly.

We were a group of eight people, none of us had ever windsurfed. You taught us this wonderfully. These guys and girls take their time with everyone, are super friendly and people with disabilities can also learn windsurfing here. We also had stand-up paddling and wave surfing would also have been possible, albeit on a different coast. The area in this bay is ideal for beginners. Don't be shy!

My siblings and I went for the three day course for beginners. We really started with no experience, but after one lesson, we all managed to stay up on the board and surf a bit already. We're really grateful for the amazing experience and lessons that we've been taught here! We're leaving with great memories! I would definitely recommend this place!

a coveted vacation spot finally has a surf school. the two founders (Jacob & Robert) of Blue Spirit both have years of experience as surf instructors and are also known for their relaxed and very friendly nature. The new headquarters can be seen in the pictures before the opening and will later offer 250 square meters of retail space, with a perfect coffee machine and all the accessories,stuff and gear a surfer's heart needs. Anne also makes her own jewelry, which she creates from pieces of glass she collects on the beach. I myself worked with both of them as an instructor at WestWind in Hvide Sande for many years and can therefore recommend the guys with a clear conscience.

We made an impromptu stop at the school yesterday and was able to book a 1 on 1 instruction session for my daughter for today. Robert is very friendly and knowledgeable and has a calm, reassuring style that immediately puts you at ease. It made for an opportunity / lesson my daughter thoroughly enjoyed and will not soon forget. Thanks so much Robert, see you next year.
