FINDING NEW WING BUDDIES HAS NEVER BEEN EASIER
ACADEMY APP: INTRODUCING SPOTS
WHEN ARRIVING AT A NEW WING FOIL SPOT, HAVING LOCAL INSIGHT OR EVEN A PAL WITH YOU CAN MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE. AND THE BEST PART? MEETING NEW WING BUDDIES IS NOW JUST A FEW CLICKS AWAY.
The Duotone Wing Academy App has always been aimed at connecting our community. After its launch in 2021, the App quickly became an essential tool for Wing Foilers worldwide. Being home to over 31.000 users, it offers tips and tricks for each Wing Foil discipline and the possibility to connect with other Wing Foilers and Duotone athletes. Introducing the new SPOTS feature in the Academy App, we've taken it a step further to bring our wing community even closer together!
With SPOTS, you can now CHECK-IN at a new Wing Foil spot and share your location with riders around you. Or search the map to see who's riding where in the world in real time. The DIRECT MESSAGE feature lets you send other riders private messages and helps you contact users who have marked the spot as their HOME SPOT. Local riders will be more familiar with local rules and regulations. Or are there any obstacles to watch out for, like some hidden rocks lurking in the water, or does the wind get fluky most days at a particular time, etc.? Or simply message riders close to you to arrange a meet-up for a session!
All these functions that the new SPOTS feature offers aim to help you with every step of the way for your first session at a new location. Simply log in and search for the spot you want to go Wing Foiling. The App will show you the precise location with the option to save it for the future and/or be navigated to it via Google Maps. Additionally, to get a clearer picture of what the spot looks like, you can go through content (photos and videos) that other App users have posted on THE STAGE. Thanks to the new SPOTS feature, users can now TAG LOCATIONS when uploading content.
