BASIC SAFETY CONCEPTS TO PREVENT INJURY
We will explain how to adopt the most efficient navigation body positions, to slide with less effort, the safest way to fall into the water, and the need to respect a certain safety distance with other users of the sea and the beach.

During each class the monitor will establish a navigation perimeter that students must respect for their own safety and the one of others.

ELEMENTARY NOTIONS ABOUT WIND, CURRENTS AND TIDES
We will explain to you in a simple way the local conditions of your “spot” (place) of navigation, so that you can have a sailing plan as safe as possible before going in the water.

In Tarifa, two main types of wind usually blow: east (levante) and west (poniente).

The Strait of Gibraltar is subject to more or less strong currents depending on the tide point and the coefficient, and the Atlantic part of the Tarifa coast is exposed to the waves created by the Atlantic storms, especially in winter.

They are all those parameters that you must consider when you go windsurfing.

KNOWLEDGE OF THE MATERIAL TO USE (BOARD, SAIL, SUIT ETC ...) ACCORDING TO YOUR LEVEL AND METEOROLOGICAL CONDITIONS
The choice of your windsurfing equipment is essential before sailing.

Every day of windsurfing is different because we practice in a varied environment and with variable conditions.
There are multitudes of boards, booms, sails, wetsuits etc …

Therefore, we will explain how to get your material right before going to the water, so that you navigate safely and fun.

PREPARATION, TRANSPORT AND CARE OF THE MATERIAL
We will explain to you how to rig (assemble) your sail correctly, according to the intensity of the wind and your size, with the sail, the mast, the boom, and the extension or mast foot, as well as preparing your board with the universal joint and the daggerboard.

As well as properly and safely transporting all your material to the beach.

After navigation, we will teach you how to sweeten it with water, disassemble it, and store it, so that you can enjoy it for a long time.

USE OF THE CORRECT TECHNIQUE TO LIFT THE SAIL FROM THE WATER
It all starts from that phase and it is important that it is done correctly from the early beginning to avoid injuries.
HANDLING THE RIG TO ACCELERATE OR SLOW DOWN (SHEET IN/ SHEET OUT) AND STEER.
We will explain how to easily get speed to slide over the water, brake and change directions (steer) when you want or need it, through the simple movements you can do with your sail.
BASIC TURNS TO WINDWARD (TACK) AND LEEWARD (JIBE)
When you start to navigate and get away from the shore, you must not lose sight of the fact that you must return to land.

For this, it will be necessary to know how to basically perform a 180-degree turn, called tack or jibe, as you approach or move away from the wind

COMPLETE COURSE

Reach the highest level of navigation

The most complete course, in which in addition to learning all the objectives of the three-day basic course, you will achieve the following skills:

AVAILABLE COURSES:

PRIVATE / 1 STUDENT

SEMI PRIVATE / 2 STUDENTS

GRUP / MAX. 5 STUDENTS 

NAVIGATE TO ALL COURSES WITH THE APPROPRIATE SAIL AND DAGGERBOARD SETTINGS

Depending on the course you sail with your windsurf board, towards windward or leeward, it is necessary to regulate the opening of the sail and the position of the daggerboard to generate maximum speed.

This is necessary to avoid creating turbulence and keeping a “laminar” (regular) air flow, thus optimizing aerodynamic and hydrodynamic forces.

QUICK TURNS AND MANEUVERS: JIBE AND TACK

In this course we will teach you how to improve these 2 elemental maneuvers, essential pillars to promote greater control of your material while windsurfing.

Beach start

It is a maneuver which makes it possible to start from the beach without having to lift the sail by means of the uphaul. This skill will soon allow you to acquire the “waterstart”, essential on short boards or “funboard”.

INITIATION TO THE ARNES TECHNIQUE

We will guide you to test this technique safely with all the necessary tips. It will allow you to save the energy of your arms and thus to sail more time with bigger sails, obtaining more speed.

INITIATION TO BASIC FREESTYLE

Once you have reached the level, we will teach you freestyle tricks to improve your skills on the board.
