Windsurfing Performance Clinics are designed to cover techniques that will make sailing today’s long and short boards a lot less work and a lot more fun. Advanced techniques require strong fundamentals. The clinics focus on those fundamentals necessary to master a wide variety of skills. From foot stance and harness technique to carve jibes and getting in the footstraps, the Performance Clinics teach proper technique so all the “forces” begin to work for, not against the sailor and enable her to sail longer, faster and with less effort. Performance Clinics dates throughout the year – so escape the cold and come Windsurf in Florida!
A low student/teacher ratio and limited enrollment ensure your progress. All clinics utilize advanced simulators, on the water coaching and state of the art equipment. All Clinics include equipment. Performance Clinics are limited to 14 participants. Our Weekend Getaway Performance Clinics are limited to 10 participants.
Beginner clinics are limited to 8 participants. All clinics require advance registration.
