How to Wing Foil

We are super stoked to be collaborating with Alex Buss at the Kitesurf College on his debut How to Wing Foil series. Alex has been producing quality instruction for years and has produced tons of tutorials and trick videos on his YouTube channel. With our joint expertise and experience, you’ll be up and foiling in no time!

We’ll be adding all the wing foil tutorials here so be sure to check back regularly. You can choose to watch them in the suggested order or pick the tutorials that are relevant to your progress. You can keep watching them as many times as you need.

If you prefer a hands on session then book a Wing Foil lesson with The Foiling Collective. We run sessions for beginners all the way up to advanced coaching for riders looking to develop their freestyle and racing skills.
