Foil Wing on the Isle of Wight

Tom Court launches the Isle's first Wing Fest…

So wing foiling is now a proper thing!! It's an official sport and I never thought that it would get the this point, we have seen so many people taking it up in the last months that is truly incredible. Bridging the gap between windsurfing, kitesurfing and sailing, it hits the nail on the head when it comes to attracting new participants in this epic pastime. So in this episode I head over to Sandown on the Isle of Wight to link up with Ross William and the crew from the Trade Winds Cafe and Wight Water to check out their new wing foiling school and the informally dubbed ‘wing fest' that happened for the first time last week.

 Setting up all the foil wing equipment, I take out the new Duotone Kiteboarding Slick 5m and my Fanatic International Sky Wing 95L board with the 1250 high aspect foil for a shred in the side onshore conditions that we got for the week. Big thanks to Jaime for the extra drone shots, it shows just how amazing this sport can be out on the open ocean… Any questions about this, ask in the comments bellow and don't forget to subscribe to my channel for more sports and lifestyle videos each week!!
