Windsurfing

Classic windsurfing is where you have the power of the wind in your hands and the direct feeling of the board on the water beneath your feet. It is a very versatile sport and is for a wide variety of different body sizes and athletic abilities. Anyone can do it, including the kids and grandparents!
 
If you are looking for an afternoon adventure and you are in the St. Pete/ Tampa Bay area, then windsurfing lessons are the perfect choice!

Windsurf Foiling

Windsurf foiling brings windsurfing to a whole other level. It will help you maximize those not-so-windy days and it feels like you are flying. You should know how to windsurf before attempting to take windsurf foiling lessons.

Wing Foiling

Wing Foiling is the real-life version of flying above water. It is easy-flowing and feels much more similar to surfing than windsurf foiling.  

The first lesson for wing foiling is all about how to control the wing and is more complex. Wing foiling is definitely for someone looking for a new hobby. It takes around 2 to 3 lessons to master and be able to wing foil for someone who has never done the sport.

Lesson Info.

How long does it take to learn for the lesson?

 Our beginner lessons are usually 2-3 hours long, and almost everyone is proficient on their own before the lesson is over. One lesson gets you a solid foundation in the basics. You may want more lessons as you progress to learn how to advance your skill set.

Where do the lessons take place?

 Lessons take place in various location based on the wind forecast. (Location will be sent to you after booking).

What should I wear and bring?

 You will be in the water and being active - so dress for comfort. Bathing suits and board shorts are fine, you may want to wear a rash guard or t-shirt you don't mind getting wet for sun protection. In the winter months the water may be chilly - we do have wet suits to fit most people if they are necessary. You may want water shoes, but it is fine to go barefoot too. You will want to bring sunscreen and water.

What if I don't have a lot of upper body strength?

 No problem! We emphasize technique and balance when learning and we have specialty beginner gear that is lightweight and easy to handle.

Can kids and/or older folks learn to windsurf?
 Of course! Windsurfing is a great sport for people of all ages. The only requirements are that you be comfortable in the water, able to get from a sitting or kneeling position to standing, and that you want to learn to windsurf. Click here for more specific info about kids windsurfing.
Do I need to know how to swim?
Yes. You do not have to be a fantastic swimmer, but you do need to be able to swim a short distance and most importantly be comfortable in the water (i.e. you won't panic if you fall into deep water). Often, our lessons take place in areas that are only 2 to 4 feet deep - but you may also be in water that is over your head. We provide life vests if you request them ahead of time.
