Wing Foiling is the combination of a wing, hold by the surfer/sailor and a hydrofoil mounted with a mast onto a surfboard. The wing which resembles a kitesurf kite or windsurf sail is handheld (no lines) and used to generate power to propel a surfer/sailor standing on a board with a hydrofoil underneath. When the wing is positioned to generate power the hydrofoil “lifts” the sailor and board above the water, giving the effect of floating or flying with ‘wings’ across the water.
Surf Foiling or Surf Prone is using a foil board or hydrofoil to surf. These boards are essentially a surfboard with a hydrofoil that extends below the board into the water. In Surf Foiling the surfer paddles into a wave and once picking up some speed the hydrofoil develops lift and hovers the board above the surface of the water with the foil working in the water. The Surf Foiling or Surf Prone discipline does not require anything else just the board. The surfing/riding experience has limited friction resulting in higher speeds than a surfboard.

Gav comes from a sailing and racing background. Competing for the British national team from a young age. He got into foiling during the early days of kiting and hasn’t look back since. You’ll now find him foiling all disciplines from sailing, prone surfing, kiting and winging. “I’m very passionate about foiling and I really want to push the race scene; I think this is going to be the future of wingfoiling and I want Hydrofoil Academy Australia to be at the forefront of this movement”.
Chris’s life has been dominated by the ocean, extreme sports, fitness and the outdoors. Developing a passion and drive for windsurfing early in life has been leading to the set up & operation of three well known kitesurfing schools in the middle east and being involved with the surf industry since. My latest love affair “Wing Foiling” initiated the next professional adventure: Hydrofoil Academy Australia. I can’t wait to contribute to the growth and development of this super exciting new water sport.
