Wing foil lessons
Relatively new to the sports scene is wing foiling, also known as wind winging and wing surfing – whatever you call it, this water sport is really taking off. Literally – you can weave through the waves half a metre or so above the water, while holding onto an inflatable wing – sounds exciting, right?
Kite Surf Australia offer private one-on-one wing foiling lessons for beginners and those who are looking to hone their skills or smooth out a few kinks. Although wing foiling is still fairly new and in a bit of an experimental phase, the team at Kite Surf have been working hard developing their skills and expertise to get you up to speed.
Where better to give this exhilarating sport a go than on the clear surf within the stunning Noosa setting?
It doesn’t get more exhilarating than skydiving! Prepare your endorphin levels to soar as you’re treated to the best view of Noosa from up to 15,000 feet above the azure ocean and verdant national park.
You’ll race through your freefall at 200kms an hour, before hitting the joyous parachute point, where you’ll level out and experience a serene 5-7 minutes soaking up the Sunshine Coast. Feel free and unhinged as you’re suspended in the fresh salty air and upon landing, your body will be buzzing for the rest of the day.
