Best of Wing Foiling in Cabarete, Dominican Republic with Liquid Blue & Sealane.
Wing Foiling in Cabarete, North Coast of the Dominican Republic.
Winging or Flying? What is this extreme sport?
Wing Foiling is The Sport of 2022! And the hottest new sport on the North Shore of the DR!
A combination of kitesurfing and windsurfing that implies the use of a FOIL (A foilboard or hydrofoil board is a surfboard with a hydrofoil that extends below the board into the water. The design lets the board leave the surface of the water) and a WING (like a kite that you hold with your hands).
Winging is such a fun sport! Less bulky and quite easy to set up, also highly addictive. To begin with wing foiling, you don’t need to be a windsurfer or a kiter, though you should practice having control on some type of board before getting started.
Cabarete is once again becoming the central spot in America and the Caribbean to practice a new extreme and trending water sport, thanks to its versatility, accessibility, and hype: it is just fun!

Introduction to the wing: Wing foiling was a sport created by kitesurfers through the combination of the windsurfing skill and foiling, not much-kiting experience is required or probably none for you to learn.
1st: The main point to learn this sport is to have at-least some knowledge about the wind, water or board, though it is not an X factor for you to learn.
You will start by learning how to fly the wing, for some can be tricky and quite confusing, at least for me at first it didn’t make any sense though I got the hang of it on land.
It’s just like a car. You can even put it literally on NEUTRO and not move at all and just hold the wing by itself.
The wing is designed with 3 handles for you to grab that will allow you to move it around and use its different handles to generate more speed. Maybe while reading this it won’t make any sense.
2nd: Once you learn how to dominate the wing on land your next step is jumping on a SUP (without a foil) if you haven’t foiled before.
Watch our Wing Foiling Lessons videos pt. 1 and 2 to get you started with this sport wherever you are in the world.
Traveling to the Dominican Republic to Wing Foil
Tips for Winging trips:
1: Make sure you have more than one wing when going on a trip, wind conditions may vary and you might want to change equipment as wind keeps getting stronger. Wings dont have a de-power system which means you are always on a full throttle.
2: Wear a helmet: Unlike Kiteboarding you can detach yourself from the board quite easily and get away from the sharp foil at any second. With the wing, once you fall down most likely you will be quite close to your board. An impact vest can also be something you may consider. Don’t buy a helmet or impact vest after getting injured, be precautious.
3: Before going in the water make sure it is deep enough for you to foil/wing, you will not want to damage your foil.
4: If you’re learning practice will make it perfect, do not give up no matter how many times you fall down.
5: Have fun! 😉
