Europa foiling fleet - WASZP, Laser and windsurf

The WASZP is a ONE DESIGN boat that comes from the experience of moth designer Andrew McDougall. Made in Australia, it is marketed all over the world. Although the project is relatively young – the boat was presented in 2015 and marketed in 2016 – it has already achieved incredible success. Many sailing enthusiasts have decided to buy a WASZP to start flying on water, as an alternative to the much more expensive MOTH.

A brief summary of each foil craft is shown below. The WASZP is a new design by Andrew McDougall, the co-developer of the Mach 2 Moth and is designed to be affordable and simple to foil for juniors and adults alike. For more details on the WASZP, visit the WASZP Rocks Test Centre website located at our beach centre or the main WASZP website. The Starboard foiling kit can be seen at Starboard Foiling and the Laser kit at Foiling week Facebook page.

We can help you choose your lesson schedule to best suit the likely sailing conditions, your skill levels and the type of sailing that you want to do. Some students may like to learn sailing with a tiller extension and wings before trying the WASZP or Laser – ask us to create a package for you.

Foiling for beginners, improvers and advanced sailors

Our approach to a foiling course is to practice the elements of balance and control with an instructor before flying on your own. This avoids wasting money on swimming lessons!.
