After windsurfing and kitesurfing with foil, the latest cry for tightrope walkers in the sea is Wing Foil, which consists of a foil board and a wing that is held only by the strength and skill of the rider. It is a new formula for free navigation, less complex than windsurfing or kitesurfing, since it has no ropes and handling is easier.
The Wing Foil has conquered the one who was Olympic gold in London 2012 in RS: X, Marina Alabau, who has decided to leave her Olympic campaign in Paris 2024 in iQFoil, to go on to sail in this class that has just been born, but at the that he does not lack followers.
In Spain, the first competition Wing Foils began to be seen in the Cutty Sark Formula Kite Spain Series 2020 in Tarifa, as a demonstration modality rather than competition. It was not until 2021 that the first circuit emerged, the Vivida WingFoil Spain Series, which has already had its first event in S’Arenal (Mallorca) and which this year will pass through Denia, El Perelló and Formentera. The Alicante-born Sebastián Ducos was the first to take the lead.
