Level 1: Discover Windsurfing

Big boards and small sails will have you sailing out and back on your first lesson. Learn the basics of sail trim, board steering, and turning around in your first lesson.

Your lesson starts with a brief orientation on the beach. In the water, your instructor will teach you to steer and turn around and sail in before you sail out. Stable boards, easy to handle sail, and good instruction equals immediate success.

All equipment is included. The HST school van takes the school boards to Kanaha beach every morning.  For beginner and advanced beginner lessons all you need is a swim attire, sunscreen, and a towel; we provide everything else!

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.
