How many hours do I need to reach the equivalent of Level One ?

Well from experience most people can do all the above with in 2 hours.  Clients with natural balance from skiing for example normally succeed in  2 hours .  Clients that have never done a sport that involves balance on average take 4 hours  instruction.  I’ve taught hundreds of people so am talking with some experience.

My Teaching style – informative

We’ll start onland for 10-15 min to run through the basics then onto the water, where I’ll accompany you on a Sup stand up paddle board helping with coaching technique. Once I can see you’ve got an understanding, I’ll then join you on my own windusurf board. This will enable you to see what exactly I’m doing with the rig to help you master your steering . I will be close at hand throughout the lesson to assist .
