Kids StarT Windsurfing

Our Learn to Windsurf is aimed at children and teens aged 10–18 years old who are new to windsurfing or have very little experience on the water. Participants will learn to steer their windsurfer, control their speed and build their confidence on the water.
Whether looking to race in a club, blast about in a gale, or show off with some tricks, it all comes down to mastering the basics.

Our programme is run on easy to use Fanatic “Viper” boards, with a range of sails to suit sizes and abilities. These boards are large and easy to sail, allowing participants to focus more on sail handling and less on balancing. All gear provided by BoPSAT.

Courses are running throughout 2016
Dates: TBA (4 sessions) 
Price: $150 per child
