BKSA Wingsurfing Instructor Course

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 wavey water and also can be done inland on previously ‘un-kiteable’ venues across the UK. It’s easy and straight forward to learn, especially if you have some previous credentials above. Like all watersports it requires some tuition and guidance to avoid negative or unsafe experiences.
