The Mar Menor, that salty lagoon in the Region of Murcia, has become the perfect setting for Wing Foil, a sport that combines the excitement of surfing with the technique of kitesurfing and the elegance of windsurfing. In this article, we will explore how Wing Foil is winning hearts and transforming the tourist experience in La Manga del Mar Menor.

What is Wing Foil?

Wing Foil is a nautical sport that consists of sliding over the water on a board with a hydrofoil (or foil) attached, while handling a light sail known as a 'wing'. This discipline, which emerged from the fusion of several surfing practices, allows athletes to 'fly' over the water, taking advantage of the force of the wind and sea currents.
