Wing foiling with a kid

Postby Jyoder » Tue Feb 09, 2021 5:26 pm

How feasible would it be to wing foil with a child on the board with you? I’ve seen kids riding with kiteboarding adults on twin tips, with the kid standing between the adult’s legs and looping their arms around the adults upper legs. A bit dangerous though, in my opinion, as so much can go wrong with a kite.

I’m guessing that it would work ok on a wing foil setup too and could be a fun and accessible way to share the sport with a child.

Anyone done it?

I would say it's probably more dangerous winging than kiting due to the need for a foil for winging. Reasonable chance you could fall on top of the kid on top of the foil.
