Where Our windsurfing Courses Run?

To the very best from our time together, we goto Prinsted or into Chichester Harbour, which is only 2 hours from London and just 20 minutes from Hayling Island.

As a beginner or intermediate windsurfer, you do much better when the conditions aren’t too difficult and we have clean wind, but if your reaching more advanced levels, it may be we try out on open water to put skills to the test.

PATHWAYS

INTERMEDIATE NON PLANING

Our Intermediate session will teach you how to increase control and power in light to medium winds using board trim, rig feathering and body movements.

NON PLANING CARVE GYBE

Carve gybe, slam gybe, flare gybe and  duck gybe can all be sailed in lighter winds off the plane so we’ll teach you the fundamentals of these cool moves.

BEACH START CLINIC

Being able to beach start will improve your sailing through rig control and the conditions you can launch in. Being faster than uphauling, the beachstart will lead onto waterstarting.

WATERSTART CLINIC

Learning to waterstart is the key to sailing in planing conditions and on shorter boards.   Once you crack this move you’ve opened the gate to wave sailing as well.

HARNESS TECHNIQUE

Being able to sail for longer and in stronger winds will be possible once you get harness control. It’s also a key factor in light wind planing.

FOOTSTRAPS

Once the board starts planing you need to get into the footstraps which will give you way more control over the board.  From here we can look to carve gybing.
