There are two common ways to learn how to windsurf – trial and error or lessons.
The trial and error method can be a wet experience. We encourage beginners to attempt their first windsurfing experience in an official U.S. Sailing Level I lesson format. Windsurfing lessons are FUN! Lessons make the learning experience more enjoyable, have you sailing much more quickly, and with a much better base of skills than if you try it on your own. Windsurfing lessons from Hood River WaterPlay, with our US Sailing Certified Instructors, give you the confidence to progress quickly. Fun for the family.
Instructors at Hood River WaterPlay can prevent you from picking up bad habits that you will have to unlearn or correct later. Remember windsurfing lessons utilize finesse–not brute strength. All of us at Hood River WaterPlay will make what appears to be difficult a lot easier and you’ll soon be enjoying the sport of windsurfing!
