Windsurfing Courses are offered at 2 levels - Beginner and Intermediate. The Beginner Course (Level 1) is targeted at students new to the sport. Beginners' boards are used, and under constant supervision, students learn the first steps to becoming a windsurfer. Students learn basic sailing terms, the parts of the board and its rigging, safety features, basic knots, orientation and balance, stopping, gaining speed and basic handling.
Having completed and passed a basic test, students will be issued with a certificate. Students who have either completed the Level 1 Course or have already picked up a basic knowledge of windsurfing can take the Intermediate Course (Level 2).
The Level 2 course teaches students the rigging and unrigging of different boards, tacking and jibing skills, sail rake and changing direction, launching and recovery with inshore and offshore winds, safety precautions, knots and self-rescue procedures.
The course aims to provide students with all the necessary skills to become independent windsurfers in moderate conditions. The Level 2 Course consists of five 3 hour lessons, conducted over a period of five days.
