With free windsurfing tuition included at our beach resorts, there’s no excuse not to have a go. Whether you are experienced or just starting out, our range of clinics, private lessons and RYA courses give you the opportunity to master the sport.
The conditions for our windsurfing holidays are usually excellent at all of our beach resorts, lighter winds in the morning are ideal for beginners, and strengthening afternoon winds suit the more intermediate.

All are highly regarded brands such as Tushingham and Starboard. Plus, our RYA qualified staff are always on hand to rig and de-rig your board and carry it down to the water for you. Your safety is of utmost importance to us and with that in mind no craft goes into the water without safety cover.

Foiling is an exciting new aspect to Windsurfing where riders attain enough speed to activate lift from Hydrofoils attached to the Fin that will push the windsurf board out of the water, reducing drag and thus increasing speed over the water.
Guests should be confident in the water and have an RYA Intermediate Planing or equivalent qualification is required.
We will offer our usual introduction and refresher clinics during the week along with a Foiling theory session for free giving you a taster into the new sport.
For those who are keen to get on board and progress, we will be running RYA courses ‘Intro to Foiling’ which can be pre-booked* before departure or booked in resort teaching launching and landing, pumping and take off.
