We'll provide you with a wetsuit (although you'll need your own shoes) and then give you a introductory brief before letting you loose on the water! There'll always be one of our enthusiastic RYA Scotland Windsurfing Instructors on hand in a power boat to offer tips and keep you safe while you're on the water.

windsurfing Taster Session

There's certainly no upper age limit! With today's wide modern boards your first steps to becoming a windsurfing master are not as hard as you might think. That being said, very young children can struggle - especially at the beginning and end of the year when it's colder in the water.

We find most 8 year olds enjoy trying windsurfing, but of course it's down to the individual. Please do phone if you have any questions on the suitability of this activity for your children - 01556 502011
