the water in no time, learning your sailing stance, steering and basic turning.

introduced in each lesson.

starts, sail in choppier water and learn the fundamentals of water starting.

Continuing your progression outside the Hook, this lesson provides in depth coaching on rigging and deep
water, water starting. Rescue techniques, wind meteorology and different equipment options (shortboards,
SUP sailing and sails) are also introduced.

progress their skills. Whether you are trying to nail your jibes, or taking your first plunge into the river
after your water start lessons, our Progression Sessions will give you the opportunity for attentive
coaching in the best conditions the Gorge has to offer.
Each session is a full day event. We will meet at our shop at 9am. After a brief introduction, participants
will discuss their windsurfing goals. The group will then head to the river (location depending on conditions).
The clinic will combine sailing, feedback both on and off the water, dry land simulation and gear rigging/tuning
advice. The clinic will end around 4pm with a recap chat and beverages provided to cap things off. Please pack
your own lunch.
