Kite Foil

Kite foiling, also known as kite hydrofoil or kiteboarding hydrofoil, is an advanced and exhilarating water sport that involves riding a kiteboard equipped with a hydrofoil assembly. The hydrofoil consists of a mast and a wing-like structure beneath the board that lifts the board out of the water as it gains speed. This design allows the rider to glide smoothly above the water’s surface, reducing drag and providing a unique sensation of flying.

Kite foiling is for anyone who can kitesurf to an intermediate level. Its safe, straightforward to learn just get the sensation of float silently on the ocean balsting in super light winds.

How long does it take to learn kite foil?
Given your kitesurfing background, it’s possible that you could achieve a level of basic kite foiling proficiency within a few weeks of consistent practice. We say usually it takes about 6 to 12 hours of lessons before you will be ready to go independently. However, reaching a high level of mastery and comfort in various foiling maneuvers could take longer time depending on your dedication and the frequency of your sessions.
