Learn to Kite Foil Online Free

KITE FOIL ACADEMY v1.0

A FREE, COMPREHENSIVE COURSE ON USER-FRIENDLY FOIL PROGRESSION | taught by Slingshot Sports

Course description


Kite Foil Academy is a comprehensive online instructional course designed for user-friendly foiling progression. The course utilizes Slingshot’s multi-mast Foiling Flight School system and Hover Glide foil. We break the learning process down to the basics, and in nearly a dozen different chapters we cover the skills you will need to become a proficient foiler.

This course is designed for anyone who wants to learn how to foil in a safe and structured manner. We highly recommend learning with the Foiling Flight School mast system, which allows you to start with a short mast and increase in size as your skills progress. If you choose not to use this system, there’s still a wealth of valuable information, tips and tricks to take away from each lesson.

Slingshot’s industry-leading riders and designers cover everything from basic foil behavior, design and hydrodynamics to advanced transitions and big-air maneuvers. As you follow along with the course, you’ll learn valuable skills, tips and tricks that you can apply directly to your in-water progression.

Foil Academy is organized into sequential lessons that allow you to progress at your own pace. As you advance through the course, keep in mind that it’s a work in progress. We value user feedback and encourage you to send us tips on how we can improve the course for the future.

Now I'm foiling, but I can't gibe to save my life. More on the subject would be appreciated

Great course to get up and learning fast

by Pierre Wolff
Wish I had been able to watch this last year when I first got my rig. Fortunately, it was still worth watching for some additional tips I had not previously heard. The courses are paced well and nicely goal driven. Definitely a great way to pick-up kite foiling.

Great Intro!

Very useful! Not as hard as I feared.

by Allen Light
Foiling looked pretty intimidating, and I've still got a long way to go. But the instruction detail was just about right and by following the steps I was able to get up and foil around on the 'taxi stage' mast with minimal effort. So far so good!

flight Academy

by Dave San Agustin
very informative! im just using a friend's rig to learn on and find that the flight school is such a great idea,plus the 15" mast is great for the shallow reef and transitions .Lookin foward for some downwind ocean foiling soon with the longer mast

Great course and well put together and think the only FREE couse on the web from any kitesurf company from beginner to advanced. Very impressive. I like to see more on bodydragging technics and also using in waves and shore break. Thankyou very much and great job from the Slingshot Team

Thank you for the most comprehensive foil tuition

by Armans Sharp
This is the most comprehensive foil tuition I've come across gently taking one from one significant stage to the next using the best (age old) method of teaching which is 1- Telling the student what you're about to teach 2-Teaching the topic 3-Recapping the elements just covered

by Nathan OBrien

Thank you

Thank you for preparing such a good and informative content. Improvement comments already shared along with course feedback. Very good work for v1.0 and hoping for an even better v2.0. Appreciate the idea of making the learning curve easy and setting the expectations.

Everyone should watch this!

We've all waited for an Acedemy like this. It is the best way to learn foiling, safely and in small steps. It will help many kiters to improve their riding. I'm really excited to improve my foiling skills and will definetly be watching Kite Foil Academy V2.0 soon.
