Windsurfing Lessons

Some shameless self promotion.

I teach windsurfing lessons.
Certified with US Sailing for 12 years.
And now a certified instructor with WIPA Windsurfing.

If you are looking for lessons contact me.

We use beginner specific gear.
We get you to the right beaches during the right wind conditions.

Learning to windsurf is not hard with the right instruction, gear, and conditions.
I can shorten the learning curve.

First lessons cover: getting up and going, steering, and tacking (turning around).
Simplified lessons that get you on the water, learning on the water, and focused on a good experience.
90% of the participants are moving around and accomplish those 3 goals on the first lesson.

Beyond the first lesson: we focus on adding a new skill with each lesson with a goal of being a well rounded Utah windsurfer.

Thanks for looking.

Josh has the gear, the experience and I've watched near rookies learn so fast under his tutoring. Well worth your time.

Agreed, call Josh.

You might pay a little up front, but you will potentially save a lot of time and money in psychological counselling, health bills, rescue bills, gel coat bills, bad gear purchase decisions, rigging hours, gas driving to fruitless locations, possible family unity to name just a few of the benefits.
