Our beginner's course on Boavista usually starts at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and takes about 3 hours, depending on the size of the group. If there are fewer than 3 course participants, the duration of the course is reduced accordingly.
For a punctual start you should be at our school 30 minutes before the start of the course (registration center).
- Course schedule:
On the 1st day we explain the material, basic concepts such as luffing and falling, turning and pulling tight, etc. and the sequences of movements in a theoretical unit on land (duration approx. 15 - 30 minutes). Then you go out on the water for the first time with the aim of being able to drive under guidance on the first day.
- On the 2nd day we pay attention to your driving position and practice walking at high altitude, also known as crossing. The goal of this day is that you come back to your starting point independently.
- The 3rd day is the maneuver day on which the tack and jibe are learned.
- On the 4th day, depending on your personal driving skills, practice what you have learned with targeted improvements.
On each additional day of the course that you can book on site, we will individually build on your progress and deepen the techniques of the previous days. Windsurfing is pure fascination and you will still be able to learn a lot even after 20 years, as every windsurfing area is often different, e.g. onshore or offshore wind, waves in the shore area, salt water to name just a few differences.

In order to be able to give you maximum safety and an even better training with the best possible learning success, our certified teachers train you with Bb Talkin Bluetooth system in most of the courses. As a student, you get your own Bluetooth headset that is integrated in the helmet and you can not only understand the teacher better and more clearly, but also communicate directly with him.
WINDSURFing for advanced*
- Our courses for slightly advanced learners start at 10 a.m.
- In all advanced courses, we build exactly on your level.
- We accompany you in everything you want to learn. Beach start, water start, foot straps, trapeze riding, quick turns, power jibing, foiling and many more maneuvers.
Private lesson: Especially as an advanced windsurfer, it makes sense every now and then that you treat yourself to a private lesson with a professional. With the support of video recordings and analysis, we bring you to your dream maneuver such as the power jibe or the water start a little closer. Often there are just a few little tricks that have been hampering your learning curve for years. You can also book up to two lessons a day.
