Wingsurfing Lessons: Wingsurf, Wingboarding, Winging are different names for the newest windsport on the scene, Wingsurfing has slowly been developing and isn’t yet on most peoples radar. Just in the last year Wingsurfing has emerged on the windsports scene. As usual, Maui is at the forefront of this new sport. We have been testing and developing our wingsurf program for several years and now offer wingsurfing gear and wingsurfing lessons. Wingsurfing is relatively easy to learn. Wingsurfing can use a variety of boards, from stable SUP boards all the way up to advanced foilboards. This sport appeals to all manner of people. It is a simple and pure wing system, that is less complicated than a kite, and more versatile then a windsurf sail. Our lessons include the gear. Beginner lessons we use a stepped progression to make the learning curve fun and motivating.
Why is Wingsurfing becoming so popular? Wingsurfing is new and exciting s many people are trying it who come from the similar sports like windsurfing and kiteboarding. But we also see a lot of crossover from Standup paddleboards, who want to go out when the wind comes up. But we are starting to see new people coming into wingsurfing who have never done any other watersport. No experience is necessary, as long as you can swim.
