lessons

We run windsurfing lessons for beginner to intermediate sailors, based at our beach location in Bracklesham or Chichester Harbour.

What is Windsurfing

Windsurfing  is the ultimate water sport that can see you sailing around the harbour on a summers day or jumping 30ft in the air when the wind and waves hit.

Windsurfing is whatever you want it to be and equipment can be picked up cheaply on the second hand market, so you can have the family out sailing for very little.

Our windsurfing lessons focus on good technique and giving you the skills and knowledge necessary to keep you safe.

What courses do we offer

We’ve put together a selection of windsurfing lessons that cover everything from first timers to more advanced windsurfers looking to progress into open water, planing and more.

Our windsurfing lessons provide first timers with a chance to get free sailing within a few hours whilst our more advanced sessions work on those who have sailed before and need to work on technique.

Windsurf/wing pre course

This 2 hour land based session is a must for anyone looking to book onto our wind related watersports sessions ‘Windsrfing’ or ‘Wing surfing and sup’. For many of you, the idea of a lesson is to get straight out there and cracking on, but this can leave huge gaps in your understanding, so we’ve devised this session to help tie things together. The session is NOT a requirement for our wind related water sports sessions, but it will give you a greater understanding of the environment and fundamentals including:
  • Wind strengths
  • Water state
  • Reading weather maps
  • Assessing conditions (risk)
  • The environment
 
* This course can be bolted onto the beginning of your main lesson.

Is Windsurfing for you?

Windsurfing is easy to learn, super fun and relaxing.   It is a sport you’ll never stop enjoying as you keep on learning.

We use learner boards for all of our sessions as they give you the chance to work on technique, without having to focus so much on balance, so it really helps to speed up the learning curve.

We have a very methodical approach to learning with our own processes that take you step by step through each move and if you continue using those fundamentals you’ll find the more advanced sessions are that much easier.
