Course program and information

  • Meeting point: 9:00 a.m. – Our courses start at 9.30 a.m. for beginners and/or advanced riders. 

    In this course, we will help you learn how to ride footstraps, harness, beach start, water start, fast turn, power jibe, etc.

  • You do not need your own equipment for the intermediate/advanced windsurfing course.

    One of the aims of this course is to switch from a beginner board with a daggerboard to a smaller board (145l) without a daggerboard and then to practise your first footstraps and harness riding.

    We will provide you with the following equipment during the course:

    • Windsurf Board
    • Windsurf sail
    • Wetsuit 
    • Life jacket/ life vest
    • Shoes as required

    The course units for both course variants last a maximum of 3 hours per unit with a maximum of 4 students. If there are fewer course participants, the duration is reduced according to the number of participants. 

  • There are no special requirements for the intermediate and advanced course. It is an advantage if you can already run at altitude. 

  • We recommend that you book at least 3 days for the advanced courses, as this usually gives you the best results and takes you a good step closer to “gliding”, the addictive feeling of windsurfing!

Further information and FAQ

We will be happy to answer any further questions you may have about the course and how to register for it.

  • What do I do when there is no wind?

    If there is no wind, we try to postpone the course, so we recommend starting the course on the first day of your vacation to have the necessary buffer. If it is calm and you are unlucky with the wind, we will issue a voucher that is valid for one year and can be redeemed at all destinations.

  • Can I extend the course?

    If you have booked a course in advance at our advance booking conditions, you are welcome to extend the course by the day at the end, provided there are still places available.

  • What do I do when I am ill?

    If you fall ill during the course and are unable to attend, we will also try to postpone the course or alternatively issue a partial voucher that is valid for all destinations.
