Wingfoiling Instructor Level 1

Are you passionate about Wingfoiling? Are you open-minded and do you enjoy working with people? You prefer to be outdoors rather than indoors, and flexibility is not a strange concept to you?

If so, joining a Wingfoiling Instructor course might just be a great choice for you! With a Wingfoiling Instructor Licence you can turn your hobby into a profession!

No other water sport is growing as fast as Wingfoiling and the demand for courses, training and information is huge. There couldn't be a better prerequisite for becoming a Wingfoiling instructor and helping to shape this fascinating new sport.

We are looking forward to meeting you!

For the course:

  • You should be able to ride safely on a Wingsurfboard as well as on a Wingfoilboard. This means that in light winds, you can sail upwind, tack and jibe in a relaxed manner on a windsurfing beginner board or SUP board with a center fin. In stronger winds you´re able to foil safely on upwind and downwind courses and you can jibe without ending the flight phase of the board.
  • Teaching experience in other sports is not necessary, but of course helpful. In any case, it is important to have studied the VDWS Wingfoiling Instructor E-learning program in advance.

 

For the license qualification:

  • Completion of the instructor course
  • Passing the practical and theoretical exams as well as teaching exam
  • VDWS Membership
  • Minimum age: 16 years

Our training courses focus on the organisation and implementation of wingsurf and wingfoil beginner courses. The aim is to provide professional support to aspiring wingfoilers entering this sport and to organise lessons efficiently at a high level.

Theoretical content:
Developing the necessary methodological-didactic knowledge to make wingsurfing and wingfoiling fun for the students. Make and evaluate first teaching experiences through teaching experiments with wing students.

Practical content:
Learn to organise and conduct safe wingsurfing and wingfoil lessons for wingfoiling beginners.
