Foiling

Foiling around Namotu Island

Foiling has taken off again in the last couple of years and we are fortunate enough to have amazing places for paddle foiling and kite foiling. The waves on the inside of Swimming Pools and Namotu Lefts on high tide offer exceptional foiling and are a great place to practise your skills.

We have many kite foilers as well who relish the miles of open ocean around the resort (and the availability of our boats to pick them up if they can’t make it back to shore).

Paddle foil runs surrounding Namotu Island

We have so many foil-able waves that we’ve had to name them! They’re kind of like ski runs – long, varied and with a lift (boat/ski) to take you back to the top. Or back to the Boatshed Bar for aprés ski.

Here are a few foil runs to try when you’re on Namotu… And remember, you’ve got to do them all!
