Is this course for me?
If you have some water sport experience, windsurfing, sailing, surfing etc then yes it is! No matter where we are starting from we can get you flying or at least send you home knowing how and what you have to do to get there. You have to be a minimum 16 years old.
If you can already foil then we will get you foil tacking and gybing, riding switch, pumping, jumping and progressing to the next level!
If you are a complete learner and not used to the ocean environment then give me a message and we can discuss options and suitability.
The cost of the 2 day course is £200 plus equipment hire if you require it.
We will meet at 10am on Saturday, the course will run till 4pm each day (hopefully you will be pretty worn out and ready to rest up and digest the day.)
If you don’t have your own foil/wing equipment then you will need to reserve this at the OTC at a reduced rate of £120 for the weekend. There is space for just 5 people on this course with 2 coaches.
We will be filming, taking photos and briefing each one of you on your technique, most of the time we will be on the water with you, we will have the RIB for safety and to coach from.
You should bring your own packed lunch or there is a Lidl next to the centre.
Helmets and buoyancy aids will be provided if you don’t have your own.

We are covid ready and will social distance without losing the feel and experience of the course.
If we have to cancel due to a lockdown then you will be offered a full refund or we can change the date.
We cannot offer a refund for cancellations, however if you need to change your dates, you can do so up to 7 days prior to your course. You can do this by contacting myself.
We can safely run these courses in 4-30 knots. We will be keeping an eye on the forecast and let you know 2 days prior to the weekend if we are having to re-arrange due to poor weather conditions. If there is zero wind on the day then we have the option of hiring the new e-foil boards at a reduced rate. This is an awesome option!!!
