Event Information


Event Information: This three hour lesson will review the topics of the Intro to Windsurfing lesson as needed and focus on rigging and windsurfing skills. Students should expect to spend time on the water during this lesson and dress accordingly. This lesson is also an opportunity for students who have previously taken this lesson to showcase their windsurfing skills and abilities to the instructor. If students are attempting to gain a light rating during this lesson, they should come prepared to rig, launch, sail, and derig windsurfing equipment without assistance. 

Location: This lesson will meet under the yellow canopy next to the lake lab. If you are unable to find your instructor, or if there is inclement weather, please check in with the Outdoor UW Office.

Prerequisites: Intro to Windsurfing Attendance Rating.

Students who take this lesson will be working toward earning their Windsurfing Light Rating. It may take several lessons to achieve proficiency in the skills that constitute the rating. Ratings are issued at the discretion of the Instructor.
