The RYA Dinghy & Watersports Show presented by Suzuki is the must-see pre-season meetup and brings together all best and latest gear, all under one roof. Get to see the foiling's finest and latest developments from industry leading experts in winging, windsurfing and sailing.

The Official Test Centre (OTC) (O16)

The OTC is a watersports centre within the grounds of the Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Academy. They cater for all abilities and offering tuition from entry to expert for windsurfing, kitesurfing, wing-foiling and stand-up paddling (SUP). They are also the UK's first Fliteschool.

The Foiling Collective (P12)

The Fliteboard Series 3 has just landed! Bringing a revolutionary jet propulsion system and a new family of Flitecells, eFoiling has evolved and riders want different experiences. Fliteboard has introduced Dual Drive, allowing riders to seamlessly swap between a prop and jet. Every Fliteboard purchase also comes with a free 2-hour eFoil lesson or first service.

F-One (M14)

Always aiming to stay ahead of the curve, the F-ONE team unveils the ROCKET WING-S - its newest, most impressive, and superior wing foil board to date. For all who have experienced the thrills of the sport and want to continue improving, these boards will take you to the next level. Gaining speed, reactivity and manoeuvrability, the ROCKET WING-S will lead to unmatched sensations.

Pinnell & Bax (M18)

Launching its exclusive range of wingfoil boards, wings and accessories this week at the RYA Dinghy & Watersports Show, P&B is the home of high-performance sails, kit and clothing. Their top selection of new wingfoil boards, wings and accessories will be ready for you to try out on stand M18.

The new Slingshot Wing Craft V2 Wing Foil Board, available from P&B, has ample volume in front of your front foot and provides an outstanding balance that keeps the nose from pearling during aggressive pumping. It is all about getting you up to foiling speed as quickly as possible and bouncing you right back up onto foil after any jump or touchdown. Options from 50L - 140L.

P&B is also excited to include the race-proven Glide in its brand-new line-up of performance wing foil equipment. Ocean Rodeo took everything they learned while developing the A-Series kite range and all the technological advancements making it lighter, stiffer, stronger, and more responsive. It continues to develop as the endless possibilities. Available in sizes from 2.5-7m.
