What is it about?

Windsurfing is a surface water sport that combines the exciting elements of both surfing and sailing. Although it might be considered a minimalistic version of a sailboat, a windsurfer offers experiences that are outside the scope of any other sailing craft design. Windsurfers can perform jumps, loops, and other "freestyle" moves that cannot be matched by any sailboat.

Try it out

The “Get up and Go!” Course run by many ISA Training Centres provides the perfect way to introduce yourself to the thrills of windsurfing for the first time.

What you will need?

The ISA Training Centre where you do your course will provide all of the equipment you need.  Swimming togs and a willingness to have a go is usually all that is needed. 

Find a club

Joining a club is a great way to meet people who enjoy doing the same things as you. Your local sailing club will provide the perfect place to practice your new skills as well as take part in all the sailing and social activities.  Many clubs will have boats available for use by beginners.
