BKSA Wing Instructor Course

Date: 7th - 8th May

Location: EasyRiders, Poole, Dorset

Wing surfing is the latest watersport to hit our shores and combines the amazing freedom of foiling with wind power, without masts, lines or ropes.

It has obvious similarities to a number of skills from Kiting, foiling, sailing, windsurfing and SUP. It can be done on flat, bumpy and wavy water and also can be done inland on previously ‘un-kiteable’ venues across the UK.

This course is designed to introduce a safe and logical beginner session to wingsurfing. Starting on a non-foiling board and progressing onto a larger foiling board setup.

The course will familiarise candidates with;

  • the scheme
  • knowing the safety
  • stages of learning
  • equipment
  • ratios
  • location

This is a 2day course including both practical and theory sessions. Candidates must already hold a valid BKSA, BSUPA or RYA instructor qualification.
