Windsurfing Lessons

If you're a beginner wanting to learn, or an intermediate looking to improve skills then you have come to the right place!

Whether you are staying with us, or locally, we have instructors at hand to teach you.

Group beginner windsurf lessons

The group beginner windsurfing courses consist of a 6 hour lesson taken in two, three hour sessions. Lessons are based on a minimum of 2, or a maximum of 6 people.

  The beginner class includes;

    Simulator session on the beach, where you learn the basic technical aspects before practicing on the water.
    How to carry the equipement safely
    How to balance on the board and lift the sail out of the water easily (secure position)
    180 degree turn
    Sailing position, sailing back and forth
    Steering up wind and down wind (towards and away from the wind)

The beginner course is designed to be fun, with the intention of getting you comfortable and confident on a board!

Group improver windsurf lesson

We recommend a minimum of 3 hours practice after the beginner lesson, before moving onto the next course (impover windsurf lesson). This course is designed to cement your skills and teach you faster and more efficient turns (Tack and Gybe).

Intermediate windsurfing lessons

The intermediate windsurf lessons take you to the next level. You will learn control in higher winds, faster turns, beach starts, using harness lines, footstraps, getting your board planing and fine tuning your light wind skills.

All of the group lessons include equipment hire and buoyancy aids. Group windsurf courses require a minimum of 2, or maximum of 6 students of the same ability to go ahead - if this is not possible then we recommend private windsurf lessons.

Private windsurfing lessons

Private windsurf lessons are one-to-one sessions designed to accelerate learning. The private lessons can cover any aspect of the sport, from improving your general technique to learning specific things like waterstarts, harness or carve gybes.
