There’s no doubt foiling has quite literally taken off in recent years, but for many it can still seem out of reach. When in fact, it’s never been more accessible and easy to get involved in.

As demand has increased, the range of equipment available has caught up and there are now accessible and cost-effective products well within reach of intermediate sailors and windsurfers. Learn to use the kit and get out on the water here at Plas Menai.

Our two progressive courses enable you to progress from your first foiling take off, to sustaining flights and entering the world of foiling transitions.

Once you've developed the fundamentals of wingsurfing and are confident holding ground upwind, gybing and returning to a start point you're ready to take flight and learn to wingfoil.

First Foil

Required experience

Wing skills to the standard of Improve your Wingsurfing, (experience foiling in a similar foiling discipline may be accepted by the centre)

Minimum age

12 - The wings that we have at Plas Menai are 4m and 5m and so to get the most out of the session, a degree of experience on a wingsurf is desirable. The ideal pathway would be to have completed your Improve Your Wingsurfing first.
