WHAT IS HYDROFOILING?
A Hydro foil is a big wing under a sort of surfboard. It’s exists since 10 years and was mainly used for waterskiing, fast sailboats and in racing for kitesurfing. In 2014 the kite industry realized that this could be an interesting addition to your kite quiver, a whole new impulse to your kite style. With very little wind you can start to ride, and once you’re up you float with hardly any resistance. It’s amazing! Now possible to try at our kite centre. We developed a special program to learn this new sport fast and save!
> Why on Zanzibar?
In the lagoon in front of the kite centre, high tide provides perfect conditions for foiling. We teach with a special short mast which will get you on the board and flying in no time. When you get the hang of it and you’re able to go, you can move to the higher, normal mast.
In the Hydrofoil Course we practice the waterstart and riding with a foil board. We focus on board control, and you will notice you are able to ride with less winds than you normally do with kite surfing! We give Hydrofoil Lessons (incl. hydrofoil excl. kitegear) for € 75,- per hour.
The Hydrofoil Package is for two days. You will get a private lesson for an hour, after which you can practice by yourself for two hours under our supervision. The Hydrofoil Package (incl. hydrofoil excl. kitegear) costs € 225,- for 6 hours.
Are you able to foil by your self? But are you still developing your skills in this new amazing sport? Then choose for Supervision from one of our instructors. He or she will go with you, so you can practice walking, waterstart and riding by yourself in a safe way. Supervision costs € 25,- per hour.
