Learn To Windsurf

We teach windsurfing for kids age 11 and up, and for adults, starting with our beginner and intermediate Learn to Windsurf courses. We also offer more advanced skills clinics and an introduction to windfoiling.

Our Beginner Learn to Windsurf course uses Kona windsurfers which can be hired from the club. The course runs for 7 weeks in which time you will be taught the basics of windsurfing and be ready to move on to the next windsurfing group.

From there, our windsurfers join the intermediate group where more advanced skills are learned. The fun really begins here, as you'll start sailing at higher speeds whilst in your footstraps.

We use Kona boards for our beginner and intermediate groups, and as you progress further you'll want to buy your own gear. We can offer advice on used gear, and the best places to buy new gear, from shops that give good deals to club members.

In addition to our Beginner and Intermediate Learn to Windsurf programmes, we also offer school holiday programmes, one-off "have-a-go" days, and possibly some full weekend intensive coaching if we have the numbers.
