Windsurfing combines the cool culture of surfing and the rule-based approach of sailing, making it a uniquely exciting challenge. Our lessons are open to all levels, with a special focus on beginners ready to command the famous Fuerte wind.
Our windsurfing sessions take place on the north of the island in the town of El Cotillo, a charming place that tourists often stumble upon on accident - and then find it difficult to leave. The mixture of fauna and flora is extraordinary, and explains why Fuerte was declared part of the Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 2009. Add to this the island's perfect waves and year-round spring weather, and it's clear why people from around the world consider the island a paradise for watersports.
We provide all equipment necessary, and your expert instructors explain the theory needed to build confidence. Especially important for beginners, the first portion of practice takes place on the beach.
Entering the water, your instructor patiently guides you as you prepare to command the board and sail. This means powering up your core stability and standing strong as you sail, steer, and turn like a pro!
After your lesson, remember you're on an island with much to explore - just ask your instructors for recommendations on what to see and do. Although you might want to stay in the water, practicing for your next windsurfing lesson!
