Wakefoil for those who are tired of wakeboarding and surfing

Wakefoiling is a water sport that combines elements of wakeboarding, surfing, and hydrofoiling. It involves riding a board equipped with a hydrofoil, a wing-like structure mounted below the board that lifts it above the water surface, reducing drag and providing a unique, smooth ride. It's a cool opportunity for people who are tired of wakeboarding, wakesurfing, and waterskiing.


What do you need for wakefoiling?

  • Board 

The wakefoil board is similar in shape to a wakeboard but is designed to be used with a hydrofoil. It is typically shorter.

  • Hydrofoil 

The hydrofoil has a mast, fuselage, front wing, and rear wing (stabilizer). The hydrofoil is mounted under the board and extends below the water surface.

  • Boat 

Like wakeboarding, wakefoiling often involves being towed behind a boat. However, the reduced drag from the hydrofoil means less boat speed is required.


Advantages of Wakefoiling

  • Smooth Ride 

The hydrofoil lifts the board above the water, minimizing the impact of choppy water and providing a smooth, gliding sensation.

  • Lower Speed

Unlike wakeboarding, which requires relatively high boat speeds, wakefoiling can be done at lower speeds, making it accessible to a wider range of riders who are afraid of high speed.

  • Versatility

Wakefoiling can be done behind various types of boats. Some advanced riders also enjoy foiling using natural swells and waves, independent of a tow rope.
