Windsurfing for young people

Courses and Clubs for Young People

We offer windsurfing courses based on the RYA Youth Windsurfing Scheme, which is designed to introduce and develop skills, in a fun and enjoyable way. Using small, light- weight equipment, specifically designed for children, youngsters will be quickly up and sailing under the guidance of their instructor. Instruction takes place in small groups and sheltered water with safety boats always in attendance.  Certificates are provided free of charge. This is an excellent course to gain all the basic windsurfing skills, after which many youngsters go on to join the ‘Calshot Flyers’ junior windsurfing club. In the event of bad weather, alternative activities will be provided.
