Wake Foils

If you are looking for a new, fun and unique way to enjoy the eater, wake foil boarding may be for you. A relatively new watersport, wake foiling is a water sport that combines the excitement of surfing and wakeboarding but with a twist.

Instead of riding on top of the water, such as you do when you are surfing or wakeboarding when you’re wake foiling, you're lifted above it on a board with a foil attached. Wake foiling allows you to soar effortlessly atop the water and is an exhilarating experience that provides you with a new, unique way to enjoy the water.

Our selection of wake foiling equipment is appropriate for both beginners and experts, so whether you’re looking to try wake foiling for the first time or you’re an experienced rider, we’ve got you covered.

Wake foil boarding is a water sport that involves riding a specially designed board with a hydrofoil attachment that lifts the board out of the water, allowing the rider to glide above the surface.

Wakeboarding involves riding a board over the surface of the water and performing tricks using the wake created by a boat; wake foiling involves riding a board that is attached to a hydrofoil, which lifts the board and rider above the water's surface.

To get started with wake foiling, you’ll need a board, hydrofoil, and tow rope. Hydrofoils are the wings that are attached to the bottom of the board and lift it above the water, whereas the tow rope is used to connect the board to the boat or cable system.

If you are a beginner wake foiler, there are a number of things to consider when you are purchasing your first board. It is best to go with a board with a larger surface area; this is because a board that is too small or narrow may be more difficult for beginners to maintain control and balance.

The board should also have a low rocker profile, meaning it should generally be quite flat, making it easier to control and maintain speed. If you have further questions, our team are more than happy to assist in helping you find the right wake foils and boards for you.
