This course will take you from complete beginner, teaching you the basics of windsurfing using the right equipment; enabling you to sail to where you want to go to and back to where you started from.

Having mastered the basics, the intermediate windsurfer can move onto an "Intermediate Windsurfing Course" and learn new techniques such as the beach start, the foot straps and using a harness.

Course run during weekends, evenings and throughout schools holidays. If you fancy it, some of the best windsurfing can be found during those Autumn and winter months, as well as during the spring and summer.

RYA courses and Intermediate windsurfing groups use the Exe Estuary from Starcross Yacht Club, where the Centre has both a Sailing, Windsurf & Power-Boat base, with introductory sessions taking place on the River Exe.

Is it for me?

If you fancy trying a sport which gives you a whole body workout whilst at one with the wind and the water, then windsurfing's for you. From wave riding to freestyle or blasting as fast as possible, all you have to do is strap your kit to your car and meet up down the beach.

How can I try it?

RYA Training is the quickest and easiest way to learn and improve. The RYA's National Windsurfing Scheme and Youth Windsurfing Scheme will take you through the basics and beyond so you’ll soon be blasting across the water like a pro.
