LEARN TO WING-SURF! Flat water, featherweight gear, and pro instruction will get you winging in no time! This 1.5 hour class is designed to teach you the basics of non-foiling wing and board handling. Class is suitable for absolute beginners and people still working on the basics.
Class takes place one Sherman Island at Sherman Island County Park. The teaching beach has shallow water and a protected area perfect for learning. We start the class with on-land instruction and simulation. Afterwards, we head to the water and learn the basics of steering, turning, and gliding across the water.
Our Beginner Wing-surf Lesson is for ages 10 and up. For kids younger than 10, we recommend windsurfing lessons. Windsurfing is easier for younger students to understand and will be less of a learning curve for them.
- 5:1 Student / Instructor ratio maximum
- The wing, board, and wetsuit are included with the lesson. Helmets and lifevests are also included upon request.
Swimwear - Most students are comfortable in boardshorts and a synthetic top (cotton is not recommended). Shorty wetsuit rental is included, or you can purchase one at the shop. Most people are warm enough without a wetsuit since the class is taught in shallow water, but if you tend to get cold we recommend wearing one.
Water shoes - We do not have water shoes available for rent, but we have some for purchase. They are not required (teaching takes place on a sandy beach), but some people like the extra assurance in case of debris on the beach.
- Please also bring Sunscreen, Drinks, Snacks (there are no water fountains at the park)
- The County Park requires a $5 Day Pass or a $50 Season Pass, both available for cash or card purchase at the park
