This class is for members who are brand new to windsurfing or do NOT yet have a Novice Windsurfing Rating. If you already have a Novice rating, please do not register for this class. Instead, take the Novice Refresher class if you would like to review this material.
Please note: This lesson takes place in the afternoon due to low tides and may have higher winds. If winds are too high for beginners, this lesson will be land-only.
After taking this class, you will be able to safely manage windsurfing gear and have a basic understanding of sail steering.
The lesson will be taught by CSC volunteers and will include both on-land instruction and on-the-water practice. If you own a wetsuit you are encouraged to bring it, but a selection of wetsuits are available to borrow. Wetsuits are required for both safety and comfort. This is a water sport, be prepared to get wet!
Once you have completed the written test and this lesson, demonstrating that you can safely handle equipment and can self-rescue on the water, you will receive your Novice rating and will be able to check out Novice equipment any time the club is open and appropriate gear is available.
