Level 5: Jibing

There is a substantial leap in your learning curve when you complete more jibes than you miss. Falling at the end of a run means wrestling the sail out of the water, burning calories, and losing time – important commodities that you could have spent getting upwind or setting up for your next jibe or wave ride. Completing your jibe almost doubles your sailing and learning time.

Prepare or review with a video

Our Jibing with Alan Cadiz on Maui video is the perfect way to reinforce what you learn in jibe lessons, and gain the knowledge you need to try a new skill or move on to the next level.

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.
