What You Will Learn

You start your Beginners Windsurfing Lessons with a dry land simulator session to run through the basics & gain ‘muscle memory’ ready for when you are trying to re-create the moves out on the water.

The Taster Windsurfing Lesson starts with learning the names of some essential equipment component parts, what they do & how to carry everything safely in the wind. You learn how to get up & balanced on the board into a ‘start position’, make a 180 degree turn, how to get into a ‘sailing position’ & even touch on a little bit of steering. This course gets you up & going, having fun windsurfing back & forth!

The Full Beginners Windsurfing Course builds on the basics to give you the complete set of skills needed to be safe enough out there on your own. You start with a refresher of the basics, including how to steer around your fellow windsurfers & eliminate sideways drift, then you move on to learn how to windsurf towards the wind with a faster turn called a ‘tack’. Next is how to sail away from the wind & do a turn called a ‘gybe’. Combining all these new skills we teach you how to navigate your way from any point A to any point B, giving you the confidence that you can get yourself back to any starting point. During your beginners windsurfing lessons we also cover how to assemble the windsurfing equipment so you are self sufficient.

Advanced Windsurfing Lessons

Our advanced windsurfing lessons in Active sport Club watersports  will step your windsurfing skills up to a new level. With personalized 1 to 1 windsurfing tuition which is always with the same experienced instructors, we can help you crack those elusive carve gybes, make your first water starts or enter into the world of water start !!!

Video Coaching & Feedback Sessions

 

With high speed turns such as carve gybes and the latest freestyle moves we can offer video coaching for some of the session. When moves happen so quickly, it is very useful to be able to record the action ready for analysis both on the spot and once back on land.

The difference between thinking you know what your body position / timing is like and actually seeing it live can be a real eye opener. We can break the move down, show you where you are going wrong and give you clear & visual pointers as to how to correct it.

 

Muscle Memory – Simulation & Light Wind Practice

A massive misconception is that it has to be blowing a gale to learn these advanced moves. In fact, learning is most quickly achieved with advanced windsurfing lessons taken in the following way… Ashore, using a simulator to take your body through the exact movements needed to master a move. This is the clearest, most practical way of learning any physical action and for understanding the dynamics & timing of a move. Slow motion, using big boards & small rigs to practice the move at half speed and let the instructor sail alongside to give instant feedback. These sessions are just as important as the ones in planing winds!
