Wingfoil lessons and courses in El Médano, Tenerife

Sunset Kite Center

Fully authorised watersports and sailing school by the Goverment of the Canary Islands.

Beginner's Wingfoil Course

This course is aimed at those who wish to start practising wingfoil. The course covers all the basic techniques. We are fully committed to your learning without bad habits or gaps in your skills or knowledge, always teaching you to make the most appropriate decions in every situation. All of this with the objective that you will be able to safely practice wingfoil independently after the course.

Our lessons

Our lessons are individual and tailored to each student, in this way the learning process is more intense and supervised, which translates into more control, confidence and security when practising wingfoil.

If you wish to take classes as a group, it is possible as long as the group is not larger than four people. We have established this limit in order to maintain the high standards of the learning process for everyone.

Course structure

The course is divided into three phases. In each phase the pupil will learn how to master one technique needed for the practise of wingfoil. The complete course runs for 3 days, with 2-3 hours of class time per day. In each one of the classes you will learn one of the phases. You can take the entire course in three consecutive days or take each phase at a time that suits you best.

Our wingfoil course is organised in the following way:

Phase 1 - Day 1

Wingfoil piloting techniques.
  1. Choosing a safe set-up spot, respecting regulations.
  2. Getting to know the equipment, all of the parts and their functions.
  3. Assembling and taking apart the equipment, checking and securing.
  4. Simulating wing control, making direction changes.
  5. Performing control tasks from different positions.

Wingfoil gear rental

Are you already a self-sufficient wingfoiler? If your answer is 'yes', then you will probably be interested in renting wingfoiling equipment without taking any lessons. We offer a full range of wingfoiling gear and equipment so you can practise at your leisure.

This service includes accident insurance, board, kite, bar, harness, wetsuit and pump.

Rental service conditions: For safety reasons, we only rent gear to riders that know how to sail upwind.

65 € / full day

Your peace and safety whilst kiting, along with the peace and safety of other kiters, beach staff, and others, depend not only on you knowing how to ride, but also on you knowing the place in which you're sailing. This is why we strongly recommend an initial two hours of practice with one of our teachers to ALL riders without previous experience in El Médano, this way you can get all the important information about the site and learn which are the dangerous areas (rocks, ocean currents, etc).

Cabrinha Test Center

Test your Cabrinha gear before buying. We offer you a wide range of Cabrinha products so you can draw your own conclusions and buy your equipment only after being convinced that the product is to your satisfaction. Get in touch with us to try out your new Cabrinha equipment.

Our Customers' Opinions

  • Amazing kite school, highly recommended! I did a 3 day private course with Gonzalo and was even able to go upwind. The equipment is quite new and the whole team super friendly and motivated. I’ll comeback for sure. Thanks a lot, Marvin Marvin Blumenthal
  • I had a great overall experience here. Toni, Jan and Ruben are a friendly and encouraging team who are clearly passionate about what they do. The school provides quality equipment and organises lessons efficiently. The instructors also pay close attention to the wind conditions and were very flexible about rearranging my classes to make sure that I got the most out of them.

    I started as a complete beginner with Ruben and I was in very good hands. He took safety seriously and explained the technical aspects clearly. His patience, good humour and encouragement throughout really helped me to stay motivated.

    In short, this is a professional outfit that I felt wanted to help me to progress while also having a good time.

  • We had a fantastic experience in our beginner's course. The whole team is extremely helpful and friendly and Ruben was just the most amazing teacher. We learned a lot while also having a ton of fun during our sessions. The only regret we have is not starting the course sooner so we could have spent more time learning with this fantastic team. Thanks again Ruben for making the course with you the highlight of our holiday! We'll definitely be back for a follow-up course (and don't forget my Spanish lessons ;)). Lisa Eschbaumer
