For all those who already have a good feeling on boards and who want to learn about wingfoil…
If you already have a background in kitefoil, windfoil, or simply a good habit of boarding sports, you can rent equipment to go on your own.
Wingfoil rentals are open all year round.
Some wetsuits and slippers are available,
but if you have your own, it’s always better!
NB: To my knowledge, there is no one who gives Wingfoil lessons on Lake Annecy. Take the time to watch tutorials online to understand how to wing foil. I possibly offer recovery sessions if you drift too much with the wind.
As soon as there are white froth on the crest of waves, it’s good a wing foil session…
– The ideal for beginners is to have an established north wind with 8 to 12 knots (about 15 to 22 km/h) constant.
– The southerly wind can also make it possible to sail in good conditions, even if the waters are often more turbulent during a southerly blow.
– The westerly wind, which generally rises during the summer period at the end of the day, offers the possibility of sailing from Sevrier on a particularly flat lake.
IN FREE SESSION
The gears (wing, board or foil) can be rented separately and over longer periods (WE or week) at decreasing rates.
Just make a phone call to find out the prices and availability in real-time.
Personalized gift vouchers are available on request: just send an email with the desired duration + name & the first name of the person to whom you wish to offer it.
Wingfoil rental rates include the rental of:
– the wing whose size is adjusted according to the wind and your level of practice
– the board adapted to your size and technical level
– the foil chosen according to your riding style
– the wrists & waist leashes as not to lose the gear in the event of a fall
– safety jackets
In addition, wetsuits and slippers are available on request (from €4 to €10 depending on the model and the thickness).
If you’re just starting out and can’t get upwind and need someone to pick you up,
recovery / supervised navigation sessions are proposed at the price of 60€.
Security is ensured either with an electric boat or with a motor boat depending on the need, the season, the weather conditions and the strength of the wind.
The rental commits you to:
– You acknowledge that the equipment rented to you remains under your own responsibility for the duration of your session.
– You agree to cover the repair costs in the event of damage to the equipment (excluding wear and damage caused by a third party).
For example, for the repair of a wing, count between 50€ and 100€.
For an impact on a board, count between 30 and 150€
For a damaged foil, the parts will be replaced on estimate.
– You respect the defined navigation zones and the navigation regulations in force on Lake Annecy (departure briefing on the reserve zones in particular).
– You certify that your level of practice corresponds to level 3 as defined by the FFV progress card:
Move freely in a supervised navigation area (= Autonomy on the support).
– You release Wingfoil-Annecy.com from any liability in the event of bodily injury.
– You certify that you know how to swim perfectly (be able to immerse yourself and swim at least 25 m).
– You certify that you have no contraindications to the practice of this sport.
– You agree to wear the life jacket for the duration of the rental.
If you want to familiarize yourself with the sensations of the foil while waiting for the next gust of wind,
you can possibly contact Izyfoil.fr which offers an efoil school service on Lake Annecy.
If you are looking for Wingfoil schools on other spots, you can consult the listing on Wingfoil.fr.
