In small groups you will have from morning to night, both practical and theoretical instruction. In the evening you can expect beach parties, barbecue and get-togethers.
If you believe that windsurfing is a sport only for others and think about not being able to ever stay on top of a surfboard, then this is the right course for you. Theoretical hours, tests on the simulator and practice in the water with gradually increasing difficulty in combination with entertaining exercises on easy-to-use equipment will enable you to surf out at moderate wind speeds at the end of the course.

The aim will be to explore the water level and to find the right body position using straps and harness at higher speeds. From this moment on you will be a true ‘windsurfer’, and the fun on the board will know no bounds.
Aim of the course:
- Perfecting the beach start
- Water start
- Secure board control in medium high winds
- Fast tack
- Surfing with trapeze
Once the keel disappears and you start taking it seriously, then you enter the world of ‘Funboards’ with ‘freeride’ boards!
In this third step of your formation, you can study in more depth some of the topics already mentioned in the previous course and experience a new type of board, which is lighter, more maneuverable and agile!
Aim of the course:
- Start and surf in strong winds
- Perfection of planing and foot control.
- Using the straps
