Advanced Windsurfing

Types of Classes:

We offer windsurfing courses for all levels of windsurfers. Whether it's your first time trying to stand on a board, or you're picking up some new skills after years of windsurfing, we have a class to fit your needs.

The group windsurfing classes on weekends are appropriate for ages 14 and up.

For children ages 9-15, please see our Windsurfing and Sailing Summer Lessons.

If you're interested, though, in sharpening your skills via private lessons, we offer those as well.
