We'll start by rigging up the windsurfer and you'll learn how all the pieces fit together. Then you'll practise reading the wind as it skates across the water and develop your balance on the board. Before you know it, you'll be finding your feet, pulling up the sail and gliding through the water. As you splash through the water, you'll look back and see the thumbs up - success! The first hour will be closeup teaching. Then, I'll sail around you and give you feedback intermittently. We will take a break for a picnic on the grass (you will have to bring your own food), where you can watch native Australian birds, sailboats, and the sun sparkling across the lake. After lunch, we'll work on accelerating and turning. If you can catch a gust of wind and carve through the water, don't forget to look back, as I'll be catching it all on camera! In the last half hour, we will wash the gear and pack up. You'll come away wondering how this hidden oasis of nature can be so close to a big city. Afterwards, I'll send you the photos and videos so you can show off to all your mates! ;)
City pick up and drop off Free - just let me know 24 hours in advance
We'll launch from Jamieson Park, Narrabeen Lake. You'll feel like you've stepped out of the city, into a natural oasis, filled with birds, fish, boats and boards. If the weather is wet/stormy or the wind is too low or too high, we will cancel or substitute for a paddleboard race around the lake (at your choice).

This activity is designed for beginners, but intermediate and advanced windsurfers are always welcome. Don't forget to bring picnic food for lunch. You can also hire kayaks and paddle boards. If I don't have availability on your preferred dates, send me a message and we'll work something out!
