Friday night Tips and Tricks sessions

In 2017 we will also be organising Friday night sessions with supervision and where you can get tips and tricks from our instructors. Because even the best windsurfers sometimes have specific questions or issues with technique: body position, sail position, tuning, jibing, speed tacks, etc.

For these and indeed any windsurfing related questions you are welcome to come along on Friday evenings in the Summer. In principle we are open till sun down for instruction or just tips and tricks.

ATTENTION: Tips and Tricks are not regular lessons while there is supervision

Learn how to make optimum use of the wind speed and direction both through tuning and learning to read water and weather conditions. All these things can come up on a Friday Night Session.

All you have to do is register, and you can take part in 3 Friday Night Sessions from 18.00 till closing time for € 55 (and a bit of help packing up). The price includes use of equipment and if you work it out right you can be on the water for less than € 7 per hour!

NOTE: To take part in Friday Night Session you need to have at least completed the beginners course.
