Master the skills of windsurfing
Learn to windsurf with UKSA
If you’re new to windsurfing you can grasp the basics in just a few hours. If you’ve got some windsurfing experience, you can hone your skills through shore-based simulation, coaching and on-the-water practical sessions.
As well as two- and five-day courses, UKSA offers bespoke progressive courses that follow different stages of the RYA Windsurfing Scheme.
RYA Youth Windsurfing Scheme, Stages 1 and 2
An easy and accessible starter programme, this certificated course allows students to log their progression and recognise their achievements.
