The winds are stronger, the days are longer so its time to get that windsurfer thats been lurking in your garage out. Check everything is still working and safe, and get back onto the water.

Windsurfing Instructor Training - INTERMEDIATE COACH

Sat 6 Nov 2010 - Sun 7 Nov 2010
Christchurch

NEW COURSE! This is a new course covering coaching for introduction to short board skills, beach starts, harness, footstraps, waterstarts and gybes. The course which is based on the RYA Fast Forward key principles is a great update and progression course for existing instructors wanting to revalidate. If there are spare spaces we may take people who are not already basic instructors, this will improve your own skills as well as teaching you good progressions for developing windsurfers (though you will not receive official certification unless you’ve also done the basic instructors course).
