WHAT DOES THE PROJECT DO?
This course is an introduction to the adrenaline sport of windsurfing. It is an intensive two week programme, ideal if you are considering taking your skills up to instructor level in the future.
You are taught alongside trainee instructors so you can be sure of picking up top tips from the professionals. Learning to windsurf opens up a whole world of exhilaration – and we promise to get you up on the board enjoying your time on the water as quickly as possible.
WHAT WILL I BE DOING?
You start by learning to control the board and sail. We teach you how to steer, to turn around and to come back to where you started. After a day or two of good instruction you will be sailing confidently in light winds.
This is more than a windsurfing experience. You also have the opportunity to attend theory classes to learn all the stuff that instructors need to know.
The focus is then on improving and consolidating your skills, fine tuning the basics to make your windsurfing faster, more fluid and definitely more fun.
The second week concentrates on a series of specialist techniques including harness work and beach starts. You will improve your tacks and gybes and start using the footstraps.
You can expect to experience an introduction to planing and stronger wind techniques – and the real buzz comes when you get the board planing and start enjoying speed.
