WHEN IS A GOOD TIME FOR LEARN WINGFOILING?
Cabarete, On the North Coast of the Dominican Republic ( where we are) is widely considered one of the best wingsurfing / wingfoiling destinations in the world. Year-round you can find ideal wind for learning to wingfoil.
Mid September to Mid October is hit or miss, since that is hurricane season. Meaning hurricanes travel well north or well south of the DR, but this can change the wind pattern for a bit.
One of the great advantages of learning wingfoiling is that, unlike kitesurfing, you only need a gentle breeze for your first lessons to learn the basics on the beach and then in the water. To successfully get up & ride on foil you need around 12 knots (4 beaufort). Most months of the year we have at least a minimum of 15 to 20 days with 12 knots or more, so the chances that you can finish your 8 hour wingfoil course in 5 to 7 days are very high.
