Kite Foil Academy Reviews- it works!
When we launched Foil Academy about a year ago, we knew we were
filling a huge void. Over the last few years, foiling has exploded around the world, across multiple watersports. Brands and manufacturers- both big and small- have taken advantage of the momentum, and in turn have made
foiling accessible to the masses, while innovations in materials, designs and learning methods have
made foiling more approachable than we ever imagined a decade ago. But they’re still not easy to use,
and until Foil Academy, there was no comprehensive source of information or instruction to teach
people how to use this technical piece of equipment.
We created Kite Foil Academy for the sport, for everyone, for all brands, in the spirit of progression and
exploration. We wholeheartedly believe foiling will change watersports as we know them, and it’s our
calling as innovators and dreamers to plant seeds, water them and see what grows.
After a year, we’ve had about 10,000 students go through Foil Academy! As a free course, we knew it
would be popular, but that’s an enormous number that goes to show just how hungry people were for
information and instruction.
Don’t take our word for it. Here are a few of the hundreds of reviews we’ve received from people who
have benefited from Foil Academy.
“Great course to get up and learning fast. Wish I had been able to watch this last year when I first got my
rig. Fortunately, it was still worth watching for some additional tips I had not previously heard. The
courses are paced well and nicely goal driven. Definitely a great way to pick-up kite foiling.” – Pierre
“Very useful! Not as hard as I feared. Foiling looked pretty intimidating, and I’ve still got a long way to
go. But the instruction detail was just about right and by following the steps I was able to get up and foil
around on the taxi stag mast with minimal effort. So far so good!” – Allen Light
“Great course and well put together and think the only FREE course on the web from any kitesurf
company from beginner to advanced. Very impressive. I like to see more on body dragging technics and
also using in waves and shore break. Thank you very much and great job for the Slingshot Team.” –
“We’ve all waited for an Academy like this. It is the best way to learn foiling, safely and in small steps. It
will help many kiters to improve their riding. I'm really excited to improve my foiling skills and will
definitely be watching Kite Foil Academy V2.0 soon.” Kai Schackers
“Thank you, this is the most comprehensive foil tuition I’ve come across, gently taking one from one
significant stage to the next using the best (age old) method of teaching which is 1- Telling the student what you’re about to teach, 2-Teaching the topic, 3-Recapping the elements just covered.” – Armans Sharp
