Learn to Windsurf This Summer

Its been a while since the last post here due to the fact that the high summer months are the ideal time to get into the sport of windsurfing & we have been flat out running beginners windsurfing lessons!

Beginners Windsurfing Lessons - 1st Week July 2010

Our Full Beginners Windsurfing Course covers everything you need to know to then be safe enough out there on the water hiring some equipment from us, practicing what you have been taught.

On the 1st 3 hour lesson you learn about the windsurfing equipment, getting into a windsurfing start position, a basic static 180 degree turn, the sailing position & a little bit of steering. This is enough to get you up & windsurfing along with a turn to get you back home again!

The 2nd 3 hour lesson we teach you how to prevent sideways drift by looking more at steering, sailing towards the wind & doing a faster turn called a tack then move on the cover sailing away from the wind & doing a turn called a gybe.

You also learn a self rescue technique to get you safely home should the wind disappear!

The aim of our full beginners windsurfing course is to give you the knowledge to, in theory be dropped at any ‘Point A’ in Poole Harbour, told to get to any ‘Point B’ & through a combination of steering, tacks, gybes, upwind & downwind sailing, be able to make your way to your target.

To help boost your learning curve & get you going with windsurfing, our Full Beginners Windsurfing Course is included as one of our Special Windsurfing Offers – Save £11 by booking both halves of the course together.

Come and join in the fun of learning to windsurf at the Poole Windsurfing School!
