Wingboarding Instructor X-Over Course

A novelty for all trained VDWS watersport instructors!

You already have a VDWS license and would like to use your experience and motivation as a VDWS instructor in another sport? Then you can easily qualify for a second, third or fourth instructor license in another sport with our X-Over courses from 2024.

In short: X-Over courses enable VDWS instructors to continue their training and "broaden their horizons" by qualifying for additional VDWS licenses - at a lower price and less time-consuming.


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 centre 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 Wingboarding 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
  • Passport photo
  • 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 wingboarding beginners. 

Duration: 6 days

Price: 625 €

Extra Costs: Travel expenses, accommodation, material

Practical exam by 12-30 knots
Wingfoiling on different courses in a flat triangle course, foiled jibe, safe touchdown at the starting point.
Safe control through demonstrative riding of the manoeuvres tack and jibe, from heel- and toeside, as well as safe steering on a longboard in an eight course (2 buoys at 50 m distance on beam reach course). 

Teaching Exam
Teaching ability in combination with technical theoretical knowledge and real students. 

Theoretical Exam
The written examination with questions on theoretical, practical and methodical training lasts 90 minutes.

The license completion after an X-Over course is identical to that of a regular course: If you pass all parts of the Level 1 exam, all you need for your Level 2 license is an internship at a VDWS school.

Note: If you are already a Level 2 instructor and can prove that you have at least 6 months of practical experience at a VDWS school, an additional internship is not necessary.
