What other accessories do I need for wingfoiling?

In addition to the board and wing, you definitely need a leash for both the wing and the board. It is a matter of taste whether you use straight leashes or coiled leashes. You can attach them to your wrist or ankle or to a belt around your belly.

Especially for beginners, an impact protection vest and helmet are recommended.

As with all other water sports, you also need a temperature-adapted wetsuit and, in the cold season, neoprene boots and, if necessary, neoprene gloves.

Make sure your foil comes complete with protective covers and a carrying bag. Some manufacturers offer complete sets, others require you to order the protective covers and the bag separately. We will be happy to advise you on this.

A bag for a fixed foil board is also a useful accessory for your equipment.
