About Wingsurfing Course in Vieste

Wingsurfing is a sport developed recently similar to Windsurfing and a bit of Kitesurfing. It uses the propulsion of the Wing, an inflatable sail that is not attached to the board. The boards can be of any form, from sup to hydrofoil.

The difficulty depends on the experience that the student has with other watersports. The most similar sport is windsurfing, but kitesurfing and all board sports, especially hydrofoiling, can help to learn more quickly.

Windsurfers and kite foilers can learn Wingsurfing in a couple of hours. A person that has no experience in other wind or board sports can take over 8 hours. But it all depends on the student’s physical and technical abilities.

The course includes all the special equipment for learning easily, such as ultra-light Duotone Wings and all personal gear. And you also get one hour of free rental after you complete the 5-hour course, so you can practice what you have learnt.

The school is normally open every day from April 1st to October 15th. So you can just pick a date or a week where you want to be in Vieste and check for availability. The spot is located in Cala Azzurra, Lungomare Vieste-Peschici km5, Vieste (FG), Italy. It is next of the mountainous Gargano national park, in Puglia.
