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.

Stage 1 is a gentle introduction to the basics of windsurfing including launching and turning, and returning to shore safely and confidently.

Stage 2 develops tacking and jibing skills. All students need to get going is a degree of water confidence. The scheme is aligned to the RYA national windsurfing syllabus.
