Kiteboarding foil clinics

Why come on a kiteboarding foil clinic?

Kiteboarding is a fantastic sport to learn, practice and progress. Certain elements require some help when mastering. Foiling is an amazing extension of your kiteboarding which if taught and learnt correctly can widen your wind band and increase your fun factor on the water exponentially. A foiling clinic will introduce you to all the elements, get you mastering the basics and hone your technique from cruising to turning and beyond.
