Wingsurfing & Foiling- The new board sport in the sports camp.

Stickl Sports Camp

Wingsurfing and Wingfoil are establishing themselves as a fast growing new board sport! After one year of experience in training we can state that our concept was and is spot on: flexible course duration for the WingSurf courses and switching to the Wingfoil board as soon as the basic level is reached. And very clear: Only with boat training and radio serious supervision on the water is possible! Let's wing together"

WINGSURFING:

What is wingsurfing and what requirements should I have ?
You could say a mixture of windsurfing and kitesurfing.
It is probably more accurate to say that wingsurfing is a new board sport that appeals to windsurfers or kitesurfers. But the spectrum is much wider.

Wingsurfing is a new sport on the water that ANYONE can learn.

And that too in an extremely short time. Important are the physical conditions. If these are present and in addition the experience from windsurfing  or kitesurfing comes and the sense of balance from many other sports  like snowboarding, skateboarding or generally sports disciplines with gymnastic training, then the way to first flight feelings on a Wingfoilboard is very short.

After a few hours or a few days of preparation on a stable windsurf or sup board, which are necessary to learn the handling  After learning the basics of the wing, you switch to the wingfoil board and experience the indescribably cool feeling of floating over the water and flying silently over the water with little effort and much higher speed.

THAT'S UNIQUE!
On the windsurf board it takes incomparably longer. In most cases, when we talk about recreational athletes, months or years until you can move from windsurfing board to foil. Not to mention kitesurfing, where the transition from kiteboard to foilboard is even more difficult.

Prior knowledge of sailing is of little consequence. Apart from theoretical knowledge of aerodynamics, there is little that can be gained from this when starting out in wingsurfing.
Everyone is starting a new sport!

Some with advantages, like windsurfers or kiters, but even without this experience you can learn this new sport as a physically fit, agile person and FLY in no time.

WINGSURF COURSE:

 The aim of the course is to learn the handling of the wing on boards with a large volume in order to switch to the foil board as soon as possible.

A coach looks after a maximum of 4 students, as always at the sports camp with FUNK. From the coach boat he gives instructions and takes the group to the best spot according to ability and wind situation.

Those who are able to switch from wing surfing to wing foiling after the first 2 days will switch to a foil board. Those who stay with wing surfing can book further lessons and take part in the following weekend course with 4 lessons.

Individual sessions can also be booked, depending on available course places. Private training in One to One training is also possible.

WING-FOILING:
