NEW Wing Kit

USED Wing Kit

We stock Starboard boards and foils and Freewing. These are some of the most established and recognised brands out there and the ones that we use in our wing school. We believe that they offer the best blend of quality, function, reliability and value for money. We stock all the other accessories: pumps, leashes, footstraps, spare foil bolt kits, Torx screwdrivers for foil bolts and Forward WIP helmets and impact vests.

We advise you to take a few lessons before you commit to buying any kit. Talk to us and let us help you to get it right so you can progress steadily and enjoy this incredible sport to the max.

SPECIAL ADVICE: Take care to select the correct kit!

Getting your initial kit wrong, could mean that your progression will be slow and difficult. We have met a lot of people who have rushed out to buy kit early, felt pressured kit that is too small and wished they had bought something bigger. The ‘bigger board’ (around 130 - 150 litres for adults >75kg) is the one that will help you to navigate steadily through those first tentative flights to achieve sustained flights and to start going for gybes. Lighter people of <75kg may opt for a 115 litre board. Those who are lighter and have extensive experience in other activities such as windfoiling, kitefoiling etc. may get away with learning on a smaller board yet most of us are likely to fit into the 115/130/140/150 litre board categories defined above.

 

If you outgrow your first big board in 3 months, 6 months, 12 months, 24 months then please see this as success! The board did the job for you and got you to the point where you are ready to go smaller. You can celebrate this by selling it and buying a smaller one. Will you lose money? More then likely yes, a little, yet that will have been the natural cost of progressing you through the essentials. Without a big board in that early, informative phase, you might still be floundering around wondering why you are still struggling to stand up and turn around.

 

It’s all about having the right tool for the job. People who buy kit that is too small to learn on typically give the following reasons:​

  • “I was told to go for a small board as I will grow out of a bigger board and need to change it.”

  • “It looked cool compared to the bigger boards.”

  • “It fits in my car and I don’t want to get a roof rack.”

  • “It fits in my cupboard...it slides away under the bed.”

  • “It was cheap.”

  • "My mate was offloading it."

We advise you to take a few lessons before you commit to buying any kit. Talk to us and let us help you to get it right so you can progress steadily and enjoy this incredible sport to the max.
