Waterstart Summer Package $399
Level 1-3 + 10 Hours of Rental
LEVEL 1: BEGINNER
2-3 Hours: $95
 

Our Beginner Package is designed to provide you with the skills and confidence to get you on the water and sailing.

 

You'll start with classroom instruction, which includes understanding the "wind clock", basic sailing terms, and equipment. Using the on-land simulator, you'll learn how to uphaul, steer, proper stance, powering/ de-powering, and tacking.

 

The student will then practice basic sailing techniques on the water. The instructor will be  on the water to assist the student as needed.

LEVEL 2: TRANSITION
2-3 Hours: $95
 

Using the on-land simulator, the student will learn to turn the board through a fast tack, power-step jibe, and duck jibe.

 

On the water the student will solidify fast tacks and step jibes. Students will also learn balance techniques and a basic beach start.

LEVEL 3: WATER-START
2 hours: $150

 

 

Students will be able to ride the wind, learning the wind window and the power of it. Students will learn rig recovery, the 5-second-run, body dragging, and getting up on the board!

LEVEL 4: CARVING JIBE
2 hours: $150

Carving jibes (fast turns) take your windsurfing to a whole new level. Brian's technique for teaching carving jibes, based on years of racing, ensures students learn the body positioning, sail flip and feet movement to to successfully turn quickly and keep going.
