Windsurfing Checkout - Levels 1, 2 and 3

This checkout is for:

1. Experienced windsurfers who are new to Locarno and require a checkout of their skills in order to be granted access to the fleet
2. Returning members who just want a refresher of basic windsurfing techniques and Locarno practices

If you are an absolute beginner you should consider taking our Beginner Windsurfing Lessons instead.

The session will start on land, and will cover:

  • Fleet overview and facilities
  • Using the craft signout system
  • Safely transporting gear to the beach and launching
  • Sailing out, performing a basic tack and returning safely to the beach
  • Self-rescue technique
  • Landing, washing and storing the equipment
  • Policies and practices for use of the fleet including how to report damage

Experienced windsurfers will be expected to demonstrate skills indicating that they have the competency to safely take out club equipment.

There are 3 different checklists that represent the skills we expect to see for the different levels of access to club equiment.

    Windsurfing Checkout

    This checkout is mandatory for ALL members wishing to use our windsurfing fleet. This is not a windsurfing lesson. To attend this checkout you are expected to have at least 15 hours of windsurfing experience or completed our Beginner Windsurfing Lessons. Successful completion of the checkout will qualify you to use our Level 1 windsurfing gear.

    We will show you where our windsurfing equipment is stored and go over the windsurfing craft sign out procedure as well as how to properly transport the gear to and from the beach and how to report damage. If you have not already completed our Beginner WIndsurfing Lessons then you will also be asked to demonstrate your ability to launch, sail out, tack and sail your windsurfing board safely back to the beach. You will also be asked to demonstrate a self rescue technique.

    Meet at the Windsurfing Container. If you haven't taken our Beginner Windsurfing Lessons please wear your wetsuit (mandatory for windsurfing) to be ready to demonstrate your on water skills.
