Intro to Wing Riding

In this initial introduction to Wing Riding, we will cover the concepts of sailing (the wind clock), dry land basics of handling the wing, wing positioning, board skills, footwork (sailing starboard and port directions), the tach, and the basics for sailing a "reach" and staying upwind.  In the first lesson, we will use the appropriately sized wing (depending on wind speed) along with a special wing board that does not have a hydrofoil (wide sup board).  Using the Easy and Stable SUP board will allow the student to focus on the wing handling and the best practices needed to generate speed, control the board direction, learning to gybe, and stay upwind.  Once the student can proficiently display these skills we can move on to the next step where we add the hydrofoil board.  During all of our wing lessons, your instructor will be within a safe distance for effective communication and safety. Once the student can proficiently display these skills we can move on to the next step in the lesson progression where we add the hydrofoil board. Intro to Wing Riding lesson (unless they are already a proficient foiler, kiteboarder, sup paddler, or windsurfer that can deep water start/remount and stay upwind).

-Recommended for those who have no prior board riding or wind sports experience, or have no interest in the hydrofoil and would enjoy riding a more stable and steady sup style board with no hydrofoil fin attached.
