How does the windsurf course work?
We meet approx. 20-30 minutes before the start of the course at our station or at one of our "pick-up" points, e.g. B. in Limone or Navene on the beach. Then we will dress you up and start the course. The first lesson takes place partly on land, but we go on the water as soon as possible. At the water we are dependent on the wind, about 2-3 hours per course unit. After the course we do a short debriefing and, if necessary, some theory.

How many students are there in a windsurf group course?

We train with 3 to a maximum of 8 students per teacher. However, we pay particular attention to a small group size, this is the only way we can look after you intensively and you can learn to windsurf as quickly and effectively as possible.

I can already windsurf, but I still want to learn something, are there courses for this?
No matter what level you have, whether you are a complete beginner or whether you want to learn foot straps and trapeze, water start or turning maneuvers. We also offer individual courses and private lessons for the experts among you who want to learn a special trick.

What do I need for the windsurf course?
All equipment such as B. Wetsuit, harness and life jacket as well as shoes are of course available from us. So you only need to bring a towel, sunscreen, possibly a hat or cap and something to drink with you.

When do I have to book the course?
The earlier you book, the better it is. Of course, you can also register at short notice, but since we only train in small groups, there is a great risk that we will run out of space if you register spontaneously and you will only be able to start on another day.

At what age can I learn to windsurf?
There is no prescribed age. As a rule, we train children from around 6-8 years of age, but that depends in particular on their physical constitution. However, we train especially young and light children exclusively 1 to 1, i.e. in a private course.

What is "Windsurf Foil" and how can I learn it?
Foiling is a new driving technique in windsurfing and works with a so-called foil that is mounted on the underside of the windsurf board. The foil then works like a wing, lifts the board out of the water while riding and lets you float silently over the water. With our top material you will learn the new technology quickly and safely. We teach a maximum of two students at the same time.

Do I get a certificate after the course?
As an officially licensed VDWS kite and windsurf school, we will also grant you the VDWS windsurf license if you want. The license is valid worldwide and you need it in particular to be able to borrow material. Your driving skills are shown on it and updated as you progress. There is an extra fee of 40 € for the initial issue of the license.

What if there is no wind or too much wind?
We always try to find the best possible conditions for your course so that you can learn optimally. If the weather lets us down, we will give you a voucher that you can redeem at one of our three schools.

We wish you a lot of fun and success with your windsurfing course.
