There are many skills to learn after your first windsurfing lesson. Many people take several Advanced Beginner lessons to become proficient at tacking and jibing (two ways of turning a windsurfer around), staying upwind, and learning to sail efficiently. Advanced Beginner lessons are usually held in the mornings in the protected cove at the east end of Kanaha Beach Park.
Our Advanced Beginner (longboard) windsurfing lessons are also a great way to learn new maneuvers, such as beach starts and harnessing. Learning these skills on a big board will help you master them on your shortboard. Practice your jibe on these stable boards, and learning to jibe a shortboard will be significantly easier.

Reservation and cancellation policies
All lessons are by appointment. We will take reservations the day of the lesson or up to a year in advance. All lessons are subject to weather conditions, of course. If the weather is not suitable for your lesson, it will be postponed until conditions are right for your lesson. There is no charge for lessons canceled due to bad weather. Reservations are recommended, especially if you request a specific instructor.
To make a reservation we will ask for credit card details (number, expiration date and security code) to confirm your instructor's time. We generally do not charge at the time of reservation because all lessons are subject to weather. Please provide 48 hours to cancel or change for any reason to avoid a late cancel charge. Late cancels are subject to full charge unless we can rebook the instructor's time. Of course if the weather doesn't cooperate, and we are forced to cancel, then there is no charge to you for any lesson time that we cannot deliver.
