Welcome to Action Sports WA – Foil Boarding

ActionSportsWA are passionate about Foil Boarding. We were first introduced to foils and foil boarding back in 2003 in Hawaii, with some of the early pioneers of kiteboarding. Since then foiling had sat on the fringes of the kiteboarding mainstream.

It wasn’t until 2015 when the annual Red Bull Lighthouse to Leighton Race was won by a ride Foil Boarding in super-marginal conditions, that the average kiter started to realise the possibilities that foiling opened up, especially in light wind conditions.

In that relatively short time, foil boarding has come a long, long way. Many of the Kitesurfing brands you know and trust have invested huge resources in people, time and technology to make your journey into the world of Foil, quick, easy and safe.

At ActionSportsWA our dedicated team of staff all Foil so you can be sure that we can progress your riding. Whether you are just getting interested in Foiling, about to buy your first set-up, thinking of upgrading a wing, or ready for competitive racing; we have the largest choice, the best advice, and the experience to get you on the right gear, first time.
