How do the RYA feel about Winging?
"The concept of a wing-powered watersport has been explored and trialled many times over the last
forty years or so, but its ingenuity and appeal never really crystalised until 2018 / 2019, helped largely
by the meteoric boom and influence of foiling.
Foiling has changed the landscape entirely. And what is more, the use of wing-power is actually one of
the easiest and quickest methods of learning how to foil, attracting people from very different
For those that already windsurf, sail, surf, stand up paddleboard, or even those with limited watersports
experience, the RYA Wing-Surfing scheme provides a great introduction to the sport, progression and
introduction on to foiling, undoubtedly opening doors to more time on the water.
Wings are becoming increasingly stable and lightweight, whilst hydrofoil knowledge and the variety
available is making the learning-curve and progression into the sport ever more accessible.
With wing-foiling rapidly diversifying into many disciplines, it really can be the foiling sport for the
masses. Whether you want to cruise on flat water, venture into downwinders, race, learn tricks, or ride
swell and waves, the sport and kit can take you there."
