Begin with basics on land then enter shallow bay waters.  In small groups, each participant will learn the basics of sailing on a reach, correct stance, safety, and how to turn around (tack) successfully.  Once you have an understanding of the basics, you will receive your own individual rig while the instructor continues to help you improve your skills.  If you can ride a bike, you can windsurf!

Led by U.S. Sailing Certified Instructor Trainer, our staff loves seeing the sense of success and satisfaction our students experience within just the first hour.  Bring a snack and beverage, wear a bathing suit, and you are ready!  It is recommended to wear lotion sunscreen (verses oil).  Parking is free and there is an outdoor shower at the adjacent bathroom.  Storage is available to hold onto your car keys for you.

The location, "Windsurfer Beach,"  is ideal for learning to windsurf. The wind tends to blow onshore or side shore and located in a cove, away from any motorized boat activity.  

Plan to arrive 20 minutes prior and review our location prior to driving out (we're easy to pass your first time).  Lessons are taught three times a day.

This is the prefect place for beginners

Ideal location for windsurfing lessons, calm shallow waters (no life vest needed) and breezy. After an hour of instruction you have another hours use of the equipment. It is efficiently run, very friendly staff and lots of fun!
