Introductory Windsurfing

Types of Classes:

We offer windsurfing courses for all levels of windsurfers. Whether it's your first time trying to stand on a board, or you're picking up some new skills after years of windsurfing, we have a class to fit your needs.

The group windsurfing classes on weekends are appropriate for ages 14 and up.

For children ages 9-15, please see our Windsurfing and Sailing Summer Lessons.

If you're interested, though, in sharpening your skills via private lessons, we offer those as well.

Introductory Windsurfing

You’ve watched those sails on the Bay from 101 and seen those amazing pictures on magazine covers… now, you’re ready to try it! Learn to windsurf in a weekend with our certified instructing staff! With an outstanding curriculum and the use of land simulators, students will be up and sailing in a matter of hours regardless of age, strength, and size! Tacking (turning), rigging, nomenclature, self-rescue, water safety, and a myriad of other topics will be covered as students earn their certifications! After class, students will be ready to rent the equipment and practice their new skills!

Prerequisites: Students must be comfortable swimming and treading water.

What To Bring

Students should bring comfortable clothes, a bathing suit to wear under the wetsuit, a jacket or fleece, a towel, lots of sun protection, a lanyard to secure their glasses around their heads, a bottle of water, and non-skid/non-marking shoes to wear while windsurfing (they will get WET – tennis shoes, aqua socks, or Teva sandals work great).

Important: Please arrive 10-15 minutes before your class to check in.
