"Foilboarding is your magic carpet ride. You can go anywhere with ease and comfort. It's similar to riding a nice puffy cloud or snowboarding with 6 feet of freshly packed alpine powder. Foiling is easy on the body, and you can foil upwind with as little as 10mph of wind. The greatest innovation to happen to kiting since spectra was invented!"
-Jared (Jay Lane)
Get ready to crave the lightwind days! Our foilboard lessons are designed for riders who want the rush of floating silently over the water and ripping upwind in the lightest of breezes. Learning to foil is a bit like learning to kite again and taking lessons with Kiting.com will take you through the progression in digestible steps.
Required ability: To maximize your time on the water, you have to be a self-sufficient, confident flatwater rider that can stay upwind. You must also have the will to start at the beginning again, because learning to foil is like learning to kite all over. But, like learning to kite, the rewards of learning to foil are incredible.
Goals of the lesson: The goal of Foilboard Lesson is to take riders who have never touched a foil and have them leave a self-sufficient foilboarder. At the completion of your lesson, you will be able to safely get in the water, body drag out to deep enough water, ride back and forth, and return to the beach. You will experience the rush of not just riding on the water, but above it! (Please note that it generally takes 3-4 lessons to feel comfortable on a foilboard)
Weather: Maui, Hawaii receives 25 days of 15mph or stronger wind per month and even more days over 10 mph, perfect foiling wind. Our summer months are the most consistent and best time to learn. During your lesson we will maximize the conditions and spend as much time on the water as possible. Year-round temperatures range from 78-85 Degrees. Wetsuits are not needed! Booties are optional.
What to Expect: You should be ready for a life changing experience. Learning to foilboard has a steep learning curve, but when you get it, it's worth it! Foil Board lessons start at either 11:00am or 2:00pm daily.
All Kiting.com Coaches teach from a surfboard, following you downwind (or upwind, which you’ll be surprised to find yourself as its easier to ride upwind than downwind on the foil) as you ride and progress. All kiteboarding gear is provided (including foil board, kites, bars, harness, and surfboard). Participants will need to provide their own waterwear and booties. Learning to foil is a bit like learning to kite all over again. We will take you through the progression in manageable steps. From learning how to carry the foil to getting your first rides, Kiting.com's coaches will break down the steps and will help you break your twintip habits to become a successful foiler.
Our teaching methods allow the rider to receive instant feedback on how to get up, stay up, and then get up on foil. From the gear side, we tap into the minds of our pro rider-coaches and learn more about the different types of foils and which kites are best for foiling.
Each lesson includes:
• Three Hours of World Class Kiteboarding Instruction
• Surfboard Water Support
• Gear and Theory Tech Sessions
• 2017 Cabrinha Kites
