We use equipment (Starboard Rio and JP Explorer) which is suitable for learning and advancing. Minimum class size is 4 and maximum is 10 participants from age 10 to 100. Depending on the class size we will provide one or two instructors. The schedule will be published on February 1.

The Sail Canada Learn to Windsurf standards consist of three levels designed to teach safe windsurfing in a consistent progression.
Novice Level covers sailing techniques in up to six knots, rescue techniques and safety as well as the basics of sailing theory.
Intermediate Level covers sailing in up to 12 knots of wind on a long board. Subject matter mastered includes local hazards and the safety list. Students are able to sail a windsurfer on all points of sail at this stage.
Advanced Level covers high wind windsurfing techniques including water starts, use of the harness and foot straps and carved gybes.
