Master windsurfing and glide across the water

There’s nothing quite like gliding across the water with just a board between your feet and the ocean. At UKSA, we travel across the island to seek out the wind most suited for windsurfers of all levels and abilities.

All abilities catered for

Novices will grasp the basics in just a few hours, while those with some experience can improve their skills through shore-based simulation, coaching and on-the-water practical sessions.

This activity can be incorporated into a multi-activity stay, or groups can opt to focus on windsurfing only, with students working towards their RYA windsurfing qualifications.

We offer youth stages 1 to 4.

Windsurfing facts for all

Windsurfing is a watersport invented in the U.K. by Peter Chilvers in 1958 on Hayling Island, in Hampshire. It is performed on a board with a sail. The sail both empowers the board and helps the board change directions. This sport is a combination of sailing and surfing.

Windsurfers can travel on either flat or rough water, as long as there is wind.

Windsurfing sails come in many different sizes. The larger the sails are, the more strength is needed to control them, but the more power is given to go faster. The different sizes of board affect the speed. The thinner the board, the faster you will go.
