Description

Our Windsurf beginner lesson focusses on getting you up and running within a few hours.

What will we cover in your lesson?

  • Understanding the kit and handling it
  • On land simulation to gain a basic understanding of:
    •  Climbing on the board
    • Uphauling
    • Secure position
    • Statc turn
    • Sailing position
    • Basic steering
  • On the water we will:
    • Mirror the on land training excercises.
     

During the session we aim to have a 20 minute break which helps to talk over the new skills and take on refreshments so a warm jacket or Dry Robe is worth having to hand as its not always an option to get out of the wetsuit.

The conditions we look to sail in will be from 5 to 12 knots of wind and where possible we want flat water as this makes your first time so much easier.

5 to 12 knots is a light to medium breeze and you’ll find it gives enough power in the sail to give positive feedback.

The boards we use are chosen for their ease of use, whilst the sails are chosen because they’re lightweight and perfectly sized for beginners.

With a maximum class size of 3 and suitable for children and adults alike, you will leave us with a load of new skills.

Once you’ve completed our Beginner level, you’re well on your way to join us on our intermediate and advanced sessions.

WEATHER FOR THE CHICHESTER AND WITTERINGS AREA

Our beginner and intermediate windsurfing courses run in the harbour so we can make use of the flat water.  This allows us to focus on the techniques.

Preferred wind speeds are between 5 and 12 knots.

More advanced courses may take place on the open sea in stronger winds.

We run our waterports lessons all year round so it’s best to be well prepared for the great outdoors.

Always bring with you:

  • Towell
  • Jacket
  • Warm clothing even in summer
  • Wetsuit and suitable waterproof shoes
  • Change for car parking and tea
