LEARN TO WINDSURF! Flat water, featherweight gear, and pro instruction will get you windsurfing in no time! This 3 hour class is designed to teach you the basics of windsurfing. Class is suitable for absolute beginners, or those who have had a long gap in their windsurfing and just need a refresher.
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.
All gear is included.
- 5:1 Student / Instructor ratio
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
