Over 30 years of experience in the Columbia Gorge, Hawaii, and the Caribbean we have taught hundreds of clients to windsurf and kiteboard.

 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 up-haul, steer, proper stance, powering/ de-powering, and tacking.

 

The student will then practice these sailing techniques on the water, assisted by the instructor.
