We start with a short land lesson to talk about wind, terminology, and stance, and proper launching. And then we get get into the water to learn the basics. Positioning , uphauling, turning, and power control and sail steering. We work out of the protected cove at the calmer end of the beach. When learning to windsurf we want calmer conditions, flatter water, and less wind so we prefer the mornings. Beginner lessons usually taught as a group, and start at 9am. All equipment included. 2.5hrs/day 9am-11:30am Monday thru Saturday.
What to bring:
Bring your towel, sunscreen, and a drink. Wear a sturdy bathing suit, boardshorts are recommended. If you wear glasses make sure that they are securely tied on. We supply the reef shoes, jacket and shirt. If you are sailing for a few days consider buying your own rashguard shirt and sea-specks (sunglasses), and booties. We have these items for sale at the store. If you want to hang out all day at the beach bring a picnic lunch, and a cooler with plenty of drinks. There are no food vendors at the park.
