At the beginning of spring, a UFO has appeared on Annecy lake: the wing foil. New toy for kitesurfing and other windsurfing fans, this machine is the latest evolution in the world of water sports.
Invented a few years ago, this new equipment mainly benefits from the "foil" effect and its ability to sail very lightly.
Initiation is however done with easier boards, a stand-up paddle board seems to do the job to learn how to handle the sail.
If most of the practitioners seen do not seem very adept with the equipment, it will certainly be necessary to rub shoulders with it to be part of the elite of the glide.
A good solution, of course, is to have a training as proposed by Captain Wild.
