Windsurfing uses a board with a sail to power you across the water. You will start on a large, stable board with lots of buoyancy and a small sail, before gradually moving to smaller boards as you progress. All the kit you need is supplied at the beachclub including a buoyancy aid; you may want to bring a rash vest and shorts.
With expert tuition and modern kit, the basics are quite easy to pick up. Everyone learns at a different pace, but in a week, if all goes well, you can expect to be able to sail a triangular course…and to have had a lot of fun. You get such a great sense of achievement every time you learn something new. No matter what level you’re at, there’s always a new move or technique to learn. Even the pros spend hours trying to master the next big move.
Windsurfing gives you an amazing sense of freedom and a huge adrenalin buzz. Anyone who likes a physical and mental challenge will love learning to windsurf. Find out more about our watersports holidays in Europe.
