LEARN TO WINGFOIL

Wingfoil Schools in New Zealand

Start your wingfoil journey, here's your guide to all the known windsurf schools in New Zealand

We often get asked if we teach wingfoiling. Unfortunately we need to say ‘no’. Our focus lies on hiring out premium watersports equipment to experienced riders to take on their holiday throughout New Zealand, and to organise our famous Surfaris. Our Surfaris bring you to the best spots in the country, and our expert local knowledge gets you on the water as much as possible. Where there might be some informal tips from us or other guests, there is no formal instruction.

To help you get to a level that you can enjoy our premium wingfoil rental gear and join our Surfari’s, we created a list of New Zealands wingfoil schools and people teaching wingsurfing, in alphabetical order of location.

This list tries to be as accurate and complete as possible. However, we can only include schools that we know about – work in progress. The information we provide is based on what they provided to us or what we found on their website. So here you go:

This list tries to be as accurate and complete as possible. However, we can only include schools that we know about – this is a continuing work in progress as foiling popularity continues to grow.
