Try out Wingsurf at Lenguaventura and give an extra kick to your summer

OVERVIEW

New addition into our summer camp for teens aged 14 to 17 in Tarifa: Wingsurfing.

Beginner levels

Whole package included

The WINGSURF or WINGFOIL (for more advanced levels) is the latest innovation and evolution in the field of water sports. It is an awesome new sport that has grown in popularity over the past couple of years. Wingsurf is the perfect combination of elements such as kitesurf, windsurf, paddle surf and surf.

The beginner level is to start to ride on a regular SUP board and with more experience on a  SUP Foil board, while holding a hand-held inflatable sail, which is called a “wing”. It makes your contact with the wing much closer. The posture and the handling behaviour is like in windsurfing and the way of sliding and surfing the waves gives you the feeling of surfing with a paddle board. The sensation of sliding on a board with great buoyancy and feeling the force of the wind through the wing is unique and very exciting.

Wingsurf is a safe sport if practiced properly, respecting a few rules. As in kitesurfing and windsurfing, all students must wear a helmet and a lifejacket to be safe. You have the wing directly in your hands which prevents you from losing control.The wing has a safety leash so as soon as the grip handles are released the wing moves to a neutral position and stops pulling. The boards used in wingsurfing are large, with the ability to float which makes it easy to stand and also sit on, if needed.

As for all of our programmes, safety comes first. We have been very selective in choosing the instructors for our new wingsurfing program to ensure we are offering our students the best experience possible. With KTS we have a local kitesurf school on hand which will turn this new experience to an exciting summer holiday memory for our summer campers. Wingsurfing could be the sport you’ve been looking for, for a lifetime!

1. What is the difference between a group kitesurf course and a semi-private course and which course is the best fit for my child?

It is the intensity above all that makes the difference. For those students who have never practiced kitesurfing and who want to have a first experience to find out whether they really like this sport a group course with four students, sharing the kitesurf gear available in pairs is recommended. This course is less intensive but at all times very professional and every student learns a lot as a team member. It can also be an option for these students with more advanced levels but who prefer to consolidate their knowledge without rush and enjoy sharing the course with peers of the same level.

If a student is already an advanced kitesurfer and the goal is to reach the next level or to progress in the most efficient way and at a fast pace, a semi-private course (two students with their own kitesurf gear each) in this case is highly recommended. The kitesurf school recommends semi-private classes from level 3 onwards.

2. What happens if wind conditions do not allow to practise water sports?

We are a pure water sport camp.That is why we are very flexible and spare no effort to change our program when the wind conditions require it. If the wind is unsuitable on a scheduled water sport day, we recover as many hours as possible on more suitable days. Alternatively, we offer activities such as surf, SUP, wakeboard or go for an Adventure activity.

3. What is the situation when my child comes alone to the Camp?

Your child will not be the only one coming alone and we know there is nothing to fear, as kids coming alone are very open to new friendships and generally fit in with one another very quickly.

4. How is the supervision organised?

The Camp staff takes care of the kids around the clock. During the night we have a night counselor.

5. Do you admit children of 13 years?

Yes we do, especially if they come with an older brother or sister or if parents are sure that their kid/ kids can cope with being away from home. These young teenagers have to be aware that they will be amongst the youngest which is not a problem for the summer camp and hopefully neither for themselves.
