Windsurfing lesson

Our qualified instructors deliver the very best windsurfing lesson sessions.

This voucher entitles one person to join a group session that runs with a minimum of 3 persons and maximum of 4 .

We make sure that all of our windsurfers are at a similar level, so we don’t leave anyone behind in the group, allowing us to really push you on into more advanced techniques and manoeuvres.

We follow the Royal Yachting Association training course, but also add some of our more progressive elements which have been developed to help improve our sessions, without missing the fundamental building blocks.

the setup

The school setup

We run a mobile setup using various locations, so we can maximise on conditions.

It may be we aim for flat water or for more experienced sailors we head to the beach front, but that’s down to you.

The kit we use

We’ve chosen boards from the Starboard range not only for their amazing build quality and performance, but also their eco credentials.

The Starboard Rio and Go Windsurf boards deliver great performance but also help speed up the learning process in those early stages.
