Fascination Hydrofoiling

gallery/faszination hydrofoil kitesurf
gallery/hydro foil action cabrinha

‚ÄěThe feeling must be amazing‚Äú, you hear people say when for the first time, they witness a kite surfer on a foil board fly over the water. ¬†And yes, the feeling of hydro foiling is indeed even better than you would¬†imagine.

A hydrofoil ‚Äď a.k.a. foil board ‚Äď is a directional board with a sword like extension with wings on the bottom below the actual kite board. With enough speed, the board receives an uplift through its wings that pushes it¬†out of the water. Only the sword and wings stay in the water and the board sails in the air with seemingly no resistance. Spectators often get the impression of the surfer floating over the water. With its low water¬†resistance, this riding mode is especially suitable for light wind conditions and races.

 

During the first starts on a foil board everything feels completely different than kiting on a twintip did before. The board below your feet needs to be tamed before you can take off from the water. Not with force but with a lot of feeling. After mastering¬†the first few meters on the foil board, you can already start ‚Äúflying‚ÄĚ. Step by step you will learn to understand the foil board. Everything that just felt weird and new will soon be familiar and predictable to you, and¬†suddenly the foil pops out of the water and you fly.

Hydro foiling is fascination. Even after many hours on our foil boards, we are still stoked to be soundlessly flying over water, and we now also love kite sessions at only 7 knots. Still, every session we learn something new. 

Hydro foiing is so much more than just a mere light wind alternative. Let yourself be taken into a new world of kite surfing.

Seven Seas Riders is a young brand that aims to introduce kitesurfing as a sport and lifestyle to sports and nature enthusiastic people as well as those who are striving to become such.

On all kitesurfing camps, testivals or similiar local as well as international events our love to kitesurfing and practising sports in great outdoors is always our main focus. 

Seven Seas Riders has been launched and established by Resl, long time kitesurf instructor and passionate traveller: 

"Kitesurfing for me is a lot more than just a sport. Kitesurfing is adventure, training and unwinding at the same time - so to say like a power yoga session together with meditation. I especially enjoy the feeling to work with nature's forces wind and water. Sensing their power at every session I feel like being a part of something bigger than myself."  

 

The desire to share our passion for this amazingly versatile sport led to the foundation of  Seven Seas Riders in 2017.

FAQ

How athletic do I have to be in order to be able to participate in kitesurfing lessons with you?
Don’t worry, you don’t have to be a top athlete to come to our camp. A basic level of fitness will not be of harm. You should also have sufficient swimming abilities and not be afraid of water. 
 
Do I need to be able to windsurf?

No. Kitesurfing is fundamentally different to windsurfing. You don’t need any precognitions, we will teach you everything necessary in our beginner courses. 

 

Is kitesurfing dangerous?


Generally speaking, kitesurfing qualifies as an extreme sport, not only because it is extreme fun, but also because one is thereby exposed to the natural forces wind and water. At the same time, a lot depends on yourself and the equipment you use.  
Honestly, in its beginnings kitesurfing used to be quite dangerous. There were practically no safety appliances or depower measures. Therefore, the kite’s tractive forces were transferred practically one-to-one onto the kitesurfer with no possibility to quickly disconnect oneself when needed. That is why the material did not forgive even the slightest mistake. 
However, the technical progress within the kitesurf industry brought lots of useful novelties regarding the material construction that nowadays ensure great safety and comfort especially for beginners. 
Most importantly, there are a few safety aspects to consider that we will emphasize in our beginner classes. Furthermore, we provide the most recent kitesurf equpiment that meets all current safety standards. These prerequisites enable your safe and comfortable practice on and off the water. 

 

How long does it take to learn to kitesurf? 
This is highly dependent from your physical condition as well as the respective weather conditions.
Stable and consistent wind and water conditions enable progress at a very early stage. 
Generally, after a couple of lessons on the water most people are able to practice by themselves on the water with a kite and eventually already a board. The consistent winds and the flat water of the Kalpitiya lagoon hereby offer great training conditions. 
As always, only practice makes perfect, we will help you achieve your goals!  
 
How long is a lesson on the water and what is included? 
Within the course of a lesson on the water you will at first inflate a kite, prepare all the required equipment with the help and supervision of your instructor. After discussing the all the necessary safety measures you will be ready to hit the water! 
A lessons usually includes one net hour on the water with your instructor, together with equipment check and briefing you can expect an average 1,5-2 hours per lesson. 
 
Do I need to bring my own equipment?
No, there is no need to bring your own stuff in order to participate at our course. We will provide you with all the necessary items such as kites in different sizes, board, bar, harness, lycra etc. 
Ideally, you bring with you: 
Sufficient sun protection (sun screen, hat etc), bathing suit (board shorts might prove quite comfortable in addition to a bikini) and sun glasses with a leash (otherwise you will lose them on the water). 
If you have very sensitive feet we recommend bringing neoprene oder bathing shoes.
