Alan and his team on Lake Pupuke are amazing! For a complete wing foiling novice, their approach to teaching and patience has made the whole process so easy. All I had to do was show up and Alan’s team took care of the rest. Highly recommended!

Great experience. Wanted to try winging, and try I did!! Very welcoming and great instruction. Out on the water and into it after a great briefing from Tristan and constant tips and technique corrections definitely makes it invaluable money well spent if your looking to get into it as a sport. Thanks Roger

Alan and the Madloop team are professional and fun. They got this elephant foiling and now I tell all my mates to come here. For any beginner, please just call these guys and book lessons. You’ll get up and along faster by mowing the mechanics earlier.. highly recommended!

Alan is the man to learn windsurfing from in Auckland. He offers excellent value with his lessons and continues to be surrounded by a strong community of ex-student foilers and windsurfers; which is a testiment to him and his school. I have nothing but good things to say as Alan continues to offer me advice nearly a year after my lessons finished.
