Windsurfing Lessons

All members must have the appropriate skills in order to use the windsurfing fleet. Our lessons are a great, affordable way to learn or refresh these skills!

If you already have the necessary skills, then you only need to complete a windsurfing checkout to gain access to the equipment.

Beginner Lessons

Our 6 hour introductory course is $130 before tax. Lessons are delivered as 2 sessions of 3 hours each. You can select your own dates and times for these, not only weekends.

You will receive both on land and on water instruction.

Skills taught include understanding the wind (points of sail), how to launch and land safely. Basic maneuvers and self rescue. You will also be taught how to safely carry, clean and store windsurfing boards and sails.

Successful completion of this course will grant you use of our Level 1 windsurfing equipment.

You are required to provide your own wetsuit, or you can rent a wetsuit at the Jericho Sailing Centre.

    Our 6 hour introductory course consists of two 3 hours sessions.It is provided by Windsure Adventure Watersports, our neighbour at the Jericho Sailing Centre.

    In previous years Locarno handled scheduling and payments. In 2021 we will do things differently. You will now register through the Windsure registration site with a coupon code. You will receive this coupon code after your registration here. You must not share this coupon code.

    The events on the calendar (like this one) are placeholders. You can schedule your lessons at any time available on the calendar. This gives you a lot more flexibility, finding a date that works for you. You are encouraged to coordinate with fellow club members and sign up together, but that is just a suggestion.

    The cost is $130 (plus booking fee and taxes: $144.30) total per person for both sessions. This is nearly 50% less from the regular price for 6 hours of professional instruction.

    • Register here to receive your coupon code.
    • Go to the booking site of Windsure: https://www.windsure.com/
    • You will register for Discover Wind I and Discover Wind II.
    • The coupon makes Discover Wind II free (but you must also book Discover Wind I).
    • You can schedule your first and second lesson independently.
    • You must bring your Jericho members card to the lesson as proof of membership.
    • You are required to provide your own Wetsuit, or you can rent a wetsuit at the Jericho Sailing Centre. WIndsure and Mac Sailing both rent wetsuits.
    • Because we are getting a good deal, Windsure may have to reschedule your lesson if they can't fill a class. Please keep an eye on your inbox.

    You will receive both on land and on water instruction. Skills taught include understanding the wind (points of sail), how to launch and land safely, basic maneuvers (tack) and how to self rescue. You will also be taught the correct handling of the gear including how to safely carry, clean and store the boards and sails.

    After you have completed your lessons you must do a Level 1 checkout so we can show you the gear checkout procedures. You can contact the windsurfing director to see if this can be scheduled on one of your lesson days. We want to get you out on the water as soon as possible. :-)

    If you have any feedback regarding the quality of the lessons or the experience, positive or negative, please let the windsurfing director know.

    You can reach your Locarno windsurfing director at: windsurfing@clublocarno.com
