Every Saturday (and some Wednesdays) we go windsurfing with the sailors at the Beaver Reservoir. It’s a great place to learn as the water is only shoulder deep! Don’t worry if you haven’t got any kit – we have wetsuits, boots and windsurf kit ready for use!
We provide full tuition, which includes on-land demonstrations as well as one-one tuition on the water. So if there is something you particularly want to learn – don’t hesitate to ask! Most importantly, we make sure we have a lot of fun! If the wind disappears, we tend to play games such as paddling on the boards pirate style, in attempt to commandeer the boats (sssh).
We try to fit as many windsurfing trips in before the end of November (basically until we stop feeling our feet), and then we begin sessions again around March. Of course, if you still want to windsurf throughout the winter, you are more than welcome! After sessions, we sometimes have a meal at the Charles pub or stop for fish and chips. In the warmer weeks we hold a monster BBQ (don’t be afraid, one of our members has a hygiene certificate)!
Intermediate and Advanced Windsurfing
A few of us have created a facebook chat – when it’s really windy, sometimes we just have to get out there!
We have had some great sessions in the past – including evening sails at Beaver reservoir, and sessions on the sea (Fraisthorpe).
We are also looking at doing a few trips to some of the bigger reservoirs – i.e. Grimwith for those choppy days!
