Young Blood Camp Season
The Final Countdown
The second season of the Young Blood concept in Wing Foiling has already brought up more camps, kids, stoke, talents, smiles, happy faces, and landed 360´s than we could have imagined!
With the highlight still coming up - our “Young Blood meets Pro Team” invitational camp in Tarifa - it is time for short a wrap-up.

Our mission is to support young riders who have become captivated by the sensation of flying over the water.
During our national Young Blood camps in France, Austria, Italy, and Germany more than 70 passionate kids & families shared their stoke for Wing Foiling with us! Even if it is only the second camp season for now, we already had to call a registration stop. Whatever the kids wanted to learn - jibe, tack, 360 or even the back flip - with the great support of our national team riders everyone redefined their limits in Wing Foiling.
We saw many engaged youngsters already ripping, so it was a tough call to fill the limited spots for our “Young Blood meets Pro Team Invitational”.
During three days from 6th to 8th of October selected Young Blood talents like the Acherer twins from Austria or Manu Morillo from Spain have the possibility to train with our pro team riders like current Double World Champion Nia Suardiaz, Benjamin May, Jerome Cloetens and Gollito Estredo.
Stay tuned for more Young Blood action and young riders popping up!
