Foilboard Kiteboarding (also known as “Foiling” or “Foil kiting”) is quickly growing in popularity because it is incredibly fun. Without a doubt the main reason to foilboard is the adrenaline rush of flying over the surface of the water. There is no noise, no chop, and just no resistance that you are used to while you kiteboard. Foilboarding is truly addictive
Lessons fee: $45 per hour (minimum 2 hours) + foil board rental ($15 for an hour or $25 for all day).
Required ability: To maximize your time on the water, you have to be a self-sufficient, confident rider that can stay easily upwind and gybe. You also must have the will to start at the beginning again, because learning to foil is like learning to kite all over. But, like learning to kite, the rewards of learning to foil are incredible.
Goals of the lesson: The goal of Foilboard Lesson is to take riders who have never touched a foil and have them leave a self-sufficient foilboarder. At the completion of your lesson, you will be able to safely get in the water, body drag out to deep enough water, ride back and forth, and the return to the beach. You will experience the rush of not just riding on the water, but above it! (Please note that it generally takes about 3/4 hours of lessons to feel comfortable on a foil board)
