When to take Windsurfing Lessons & Windsurf Hire?

Here in the UK we are getting close to the best season for windsurfing lessons & practice time for beginners & improvers. May through to October really is the right time to be getting out there on the water & learning or improving your windsurfing skills.

Before May the water temperature is just too cold to enjoy your windsurfing. It really helps to be able to feel your hands & feet when you are trying to balance on a windsurf board. Starting in May will mean you get the most out of your windsurfing lessons or practice time. Even though the air temperature can pick up, the water takes much longer to heat. At the other end of the scale, after a summers worth of warmth the water temperature is usually at its peak, even if the air temperature starts to fall.

During this May to October period is your ideal time to get out there on the water & train your windsurfing skills. At Poole Windsurfing there is a range of windsurfing lessons & windsurf hire options to help get you up and going, whatever level you are at.

For some inspiration have a look at this light wind freestyle video clip of Caesar Finies, the worlds best at this sort of action…

OK, so at this level it seems almost unbelievable but the beauty of light wind freestyle is that everyone can do something! Students who have only been out on the water for a few hours can start learning to take a hand/foot off, spin the sail, go backwards, etc & for the intermediate windsurfers there is an endless supply of tricks to really get your balance & coordination going.

Where we are based at Poole Harbour is a great place to learn & progress with your windsurfing so I hope to see you out on the water soon!
