Buy second-hand wing foil set

Buy a used set through a shop. Buying a complete wingfoil set, but second-hand, is not so bad after all. Then you have advice on the one hand so that you know that the wingfoil equipment suits you. On the other hand, our experience is that wingfoil shops check all wingfoil equipment that they sell second-hand and sometimes even give a guarantee on it. Do you go for second-hand via marktplaats, a facebook group or otherwise? Then it is important not to buy a pig in a poke and you must therefore be aware of what you are buying. You also need to know what to look out for. We will write a blog about this soon.
