  • Use the waiting list if your preferred dates are full.
  • Notify us in advance if you can't attend so we can offer your spot to someone else. We will do what we can to rearrange your session for another time, but this is subject to availability.

If wind conditions are unsuitable, on-shore training will be provided. This forms part of the RYA training and will cover necessary information that is needed for Check out. Should it be necessary to cancel due to poor weather, we will email you and do our best to rearrange the session for the following week.

 

Which Session To Book -  

 

1st TASTER 

decide which session best describes your current level.

 

  • First-Session Beginner Windsurfing: Aimed at both beginners and those still gaining experience. Our qualified instructors will give you a beginner lesson on land and then assist you onto the water to put it all into practice. The session will last approx 1 1/2 hours. If you take a second taster this will be a recap of the first followed by some supervised practice on the water. To get the most out of these sessions’ students should attend 3 sessions in succession since each evening builds on the previous one. If you are unable able to attend 3 sessions in a row it might be possible to join the following group from another week.

Dates available - 20 June, 27 June, 18 July, 25 July 2024.

 

  • Second-Session Beginner + Experienced Windsurfing SessionPerfect if you have gained your RYA Start Windsurfing course or you can sail on all points of sailing in moderate winds and return to the shore under the prevailing weather conditions on the day. One of our instructors will brief you and allocate you suitable equipment so you can get out on the water for a trial session. The duration of the session will be determined by how busy we are that evening.       

Dates available - any Thursday from 20 June to 22 August 2024.
