Prerequisite: A desire to begin learning the most fun thing you'll ever do in your life and Ground School.
Earned from class: Basic windsurfing knowledge
This is where we all began. A general introduction to windsurfing consisting of two three hour classes. Sailing experience not necessary, but will help greatly. Topics covered include safety, wind theory, board terminology, simulator work. In this class, students learn all the basics of understanding the wind, rigging and taking care of equipment, uphauling the sail, maneuvering the board in neutral position, sailing in a straight line, steering the board, getting upwind, and tacking. Students will be on the water provided good weather conditions, using Hi-Fly Motions and Mambo.
Read the Windsurfing Manual prior to this lesson. Be prepared to get wet and bring suitable clothing. The first part of a Windsurfing A class is always held regardless of adverse weather.
This lesson meets at the wooden deck next to the Lakelab. You can view a video tutorial on rigging and uphauling by clicking on the link.
