What are wing sports?

Wing sports (wing foiling, wing boarding, wing surfing) use an inflatable hand-held wing to harness wind power. Riders use these wings to pull them water, land, and snow.   Wing foiling is a sport that allows you to use the wind's power to ride a hydrofoil without the need for a boat or ocean waves to propel you.
