WSA Foil Workshops

WSA Symposium 19th 20th October on Gower

So on the weekend of 19/ 20th we hosted the first WSA hydrofoil workshop based from Port Eynon along side the WSA trainer meeting and Symposium

Coaching and knowledge is key with Foiling as it's a technical skill and expensive, so relatively niche although some would say its growing rapidly!
However we had a full boat of participants on both our planned clinics.
We were based off a rib , we gave basic land based instruction and safety briefing and then straight into it , starting participants off towing on their knees on a SUP foilboard and then trying standing.
We used a AXIS 92 'S series foil,  running the boat at no more than 12 knots to achieve lift.
The feedback we received was amazing, lots of enthusiasm and commitment to the foil.
Thanks to Matt Barker-smith of Foilsurf UK and Duncan Wallace of Newquay Watersports centre for support and Instruction. Ceri from Swansea Watersports for his boat skills and handling.
We have already been looking for next years venue, a tough choice to encompass so many great workshops that are in demand.

Just back from a foil clinic with Matt. The tuition, encouragement and opportunity to try things out was fantastic. To get some experience of getting up and riding the foil, building some muscle memory and finding out that this requires reprogramming my surfing brain was invaluable. The equivalent of allot of water time, so well worth it. I was crap but still got up for some short flights. Humbling, in a good way and a great way to start.

Had my first proper foil session today (taken a while to get my board sorted...). It was awesome, got some good (albeit short) flights and the tips you gave me on that course really seemed to help as I could register what I was doing wrong and try to fix it. Thanks for all your help learning to fly!

Learning to Foil

We love foiling and have developed plenty of knowledge on how best to introduce newbies to the sport.

If you are keen to get amongst it but have held off because you've seen the cost of the equipment or heard frightening stories of "its dangerous'' !

Using a flat body of water and with help from our Straight line cable wakeboard system we can help you get to grips with how the Hydrofoils work and

demo some of the equipment coming to market from (Go Foil , Takuma concept, Axis, Naish , Neil Pryde, Ke Nalu and Fanatic)

No matter what discipline you are wanting to eventually master - Surfing, downwinding or flat water foiling, at our Llanelli facility @gowakeboarding

we can make a start !
