Windsurfing is a surface water sport that is a combination of surfing and sailing. It is also referred to as "sailboarding" and "boardsailing", and emerged in the late 1960s from the surf culture of California. Windsurfing had gained a following across North America by the late 1970s and had achieved significant global popularity by the 1980s.
Today, Windsurfing is a highly popular recreational sport, and we offer a popular location within the heart of Southampton, that offers safety and accessibility for beginner and intermediate participants.
Anybody can experience the thrill and exhilaration of windsurfing. Whether you want to crack the carve gybe, speed off the start line, play around on your next activity holiday or encourage your kids to take part, there’s a course for you.
With the right equipment and our high quality RYA instruction, you should pick it up in no time.
For complete beginners, this is an introduction to windsurfing for anybody, covering everything you need to know to get afloat under supervision.
There is no previous experience required and no lower age limit (although under 16’s may prefer to learn through the Youth Windsurfing Scheme).
