Wingsurf Lessons PROGRAM
At the ION CLUB we offer a wide range of different Wing Surf lessons. No matter if you´re a complete beginner, without prior experience in any kind of Surf Sport before, or a Windsurfer, Kitesurfer or Surfer who likes to learn this amazing new sport.
Beginner lessons are actually very similar to Windsurf Beginner lessons. Wing Surf Students start on the same Board as Windsurfers and just trade the sail for a wing. After that the learning objectives for Beginners are the same as for our Windsurf Students and after only a couple of hours you will be able to ride by yourself.
For all the more experienced riders we offer high standard, Wing Foil lessons. In small groups of maximum 2 people per instructor we teach you how to fly safely, jibe or even jump with your Wing Foil Gear.
Wingsurf Equipment ION Club FUERTEVENTURA
ION CLUB Risco del Paso provides the latest equipment from DUOTONE and FANATIC.
Wings and boards are specially geared to beginners’ instruction. It goes without saying that we use the most up-to-date safety systems, and our experienced and fully certified instructors teach wingsurfing in an environment characterised by a maximum of safety, allowing you to learn the sport without danger or frustration.
Safety in practicing Wingsurf Risco del Paso
Safety at Risco Del Paso
A safety tower at Risco del Paso Playa Sotavento is always occupied by a lifeguard looking over the windsufers during opening hours, and able to act immediately in case of any emergency. The safety team is ready all times to attend rescues with the jetski or the zodiac. Nevertheless, we would like to underline that the spot at Risco del Paso Playa Sotavento has offshore winds and therefore every windsurfer and kitesurfer should act with due diligence to prevent dangerous situations. Offshore winds are risky and demand that you should assess your sailing abilities honestly before going out in such conditions.
Booking a lesson online is always a tricky thing to do – we know. Determining which course you actually need, without being on site, on the water and trying is very difficult.
So, don’t worry! No matter which course you pre-book with us. If during the lesson you realise, that another course would be better suited for you, we will always change your booking to the best course available to match your needs.
A word about
ION CLUB Risco del Paso
The beautiful natural beach at Risco del Paso, Fuerteventura is located seven kilometers south of Costa Calma. In 2013, ION CLUB opened a wind and kitesurfing school there.
Guests can take the regular and free shuttle service between the center Risco del Paso and Costa Calma. Only a few places in the world offer so many different surf conditions in just one spot than Fuerteventura.

The hills right behind the beach of Risco del Paso Playa Sotavento accelerate the normal wind strength and also alter the direction of the wind. The direction is more northerly to northwesterly than northeasterly, and blows side-offshore to offshore from the left. Particularly in the summer months the wind is quite
strong and very reliable, but also in spring and autumn there are very good conditions making a windsurfing or kitesurfing trip worthwhile at this time.
The waves to the left hand side can get up to two meters high. The waves turn to the direction of the beach due to the large sandbank which divides the lagoon, the open sea and the shape of the bay. Therefore there are fantastic
waveriding conditions especially for beginners. There are no rocks or stones to disturb your session, only pure sand.
