WAKE FOIL ACADEMY

STEP BY STEP LEARNING FOR ALL ASPECTS OF FOILING BEHIND THE BOAT | taught by Jeff McKee

Course description



Welcome to Wakefoiler Academy.

Wakefoiler Academy is a comprehensive online instructional course designed for user-friendly foiling progression behind the boat. The course utilizes Slingshot’s multi-mast Foiling Flight School system and with our Wake Foiler. We break the learning process down to the basics, and in 7 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 15" mast. You to start with a short mast and increase to the full size as your skills progress. After this course you will be handling and talking about your foil like a pro. 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 getting up, riding, wake surfing and advanced transitions. 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.

lame but...

by Ted Box
has some merit. moderator took way too long to get to the point and deliver the actual 'lesson' which was often nothing more than a simple tip. don't get me wrong, some suggestions were of value Overall, lots of wasted time with info that could have been presented much more effectively in a condensed, scripted plan. thankful for the tips would not recommend watching until there is a two minute summary of the basics

Nailed it!

by Andrew Allen
Super cool course on how to get up and going AND keep improving your foil technique. Super stoked that these guys are prepared to share their knowledge. I had my first runs on the Slingshot Wake foil on the weekend and (yes, stoked!) and it is clear that their years of experience have paid off in bringing a really well rounded product that is easy to ride and progress on, to the market. Love your work Slingshot! Keep 'em coming

Glad to be informed.

Essential to having a foil

by Jenny Simmons
This simple and relatively quick course was great for learning the basics and more about the Wake Foil. Everyone who has, or is interested in purchasing the Wake Foil should definitely take the few minutes to review the course - plus it's free which is awesome.
