Event Information


Please note: wing lessons and ratings are still under development. No daysailing with wings at this time. With only two wings available class sizes are unusually small. WIth limited class offerings, if you have taken a Hoofer wing class before, we may ask you give priority to students new to winging. If you are interested in becoming a wing instructor, please let me know! 

Begin by practicing wing control on land. Progress to on the water practice with windsurfing longboards, or skip if you don't want to get wet. The air and water are cooling off; if you get cold easily, you might want to consider a spray top or shorty wetsuit. Please watch the following videos before class. They total about 15 minutes.
