Chicky Wing Clinic
— With Bowien van der Linden
Last year, we organized the very first Chicky Wing Clinics. Wingfoil clinics given by our most stoked female riders for female riders to get more women out on the water.
This was such a great success and so much fun to do, that the event is returning for a second edition this August!
In the meanwhile, the sport has grown a lot. It's great to see so many people started wing foiling. Time to level up the skills. This year's Chicky Wing Clinics is for all women who'd like to progress in wingfoiling.
“With this event, we really like to share our excitement with other water sports women, to get more women into foiling and to have fun riding together. We believe it’s super accessible and opens new opportunities to practice water sports for everyone.”.
The second edition will take place on Saturday the 20th or Sunday the 21st of August. This year with no one less than Bowien van der Linden, the 2021 Freestyle Wing World Champion.
It will be a full afternoon program starting with coffee, healthy snacks, lots of wingfoiling and good after-session food & wine together with a group of courageous women.
MEET & GREET WITH THE COACH @ Natural High
We start at Natural High with a meet and greet with North rider Bowien while enjoying a nice coffee and a healthy snack to empower for the action. You will get to know each other and the day will get explained. Groups will be divided by basically two levels. Women who want to progress and learn how to get on the foil (we call them the progressors). And women who want to upgrade their foiling skills, those are the advanced group.
>> If you are a total beginner, we advise you to first book a lesson at our wingsurfschool and than join the Chicky Wing Clinic.
Heading over to the spot
When the girl's talk is over, we drive to the wingfoil spot, which will be either at the Brouwersdam Foil Zone or at the Grevelingen, depending on the wind direction. Then it’s time to get into your wetsuit. The progressors will start directly with the foil and will get all the help from our Natural High instructors. For the ones that already can foil and want to learn how to jibe, tack or jump, Bowien is there for you to give you tips where improvements can be made to bring your wingfoil skills to a next level.
The clinic will take around 2 / 3 hours, including a little break and some time to ride on your own.
After-session food & wine
A good session will get rewarded with some good food. And of course wine cannot be missed when talking about the new experience you just have made.
Program in short
* Times depending on the wind
Minimum required skill level: control of the wing
and riding back en forth without the foil.
Age: from 18 years
Progressors: You already tried wingsurfing before and might have had a lesson. The control of the wing is there. Now you need to learn how to get on the foil safely.
Advanced: Foiling is no problem for you. You would like to improve on your jibes or tacks, or even want to learn some tricks from Bowien. You can bring your own gear or test the latest North gear.
Depending on registrations, the group will be separated into small groups of 4-5 riders, paired by similar levels.
