Is wing foiling dangerous?

Wing foiling, like any water sport, can be dangerous if proper safety precautions are not taken.

Some of the risks associated with wing foiling include:

  • Impact injuries: Wing foiling involves riding on water at high speeds, and a fall can result in impact injuries from hitting the water or the wing.
  • Drowning: Wing foiling requires the rider to be in the water, and if they become separated from their wing, they may be at risk of drowning.
  • Hypothermia: Wing foiling can be cold and wet, and if the rider is not dressed appropriately, they may be at risk of hypothermia, especially in colder water temperatures.
  • Collisions: Wing foiling can involve riding close to other boats, people, and obstacles, and collisions can result in serious injuries or damage.
