Windsurfing for beginners

At Ride with the Gods® we offer both group and private lessons. We cater to the needs of both casual surfers who want to have fun with their group of friends, as well as to individuals who prefer to receive an even more tailored lesson. We recommend our group lessons to individuals who are around the same level as well as to groups of friends who are casual surfers. We prefer to keep our groups small, to make sure that we pay our out-most attention to each and every student so that you can make the most out of each lesson.

Our windsurf offering:


We highly recommend our six-hour package for our entry level students. We have structured a course into three two-hour sessions, through which we aim to teach our students all the essentials of windsurfing. By the end of our entry level six-hour course, our students will be able to start, sail and steer safely and independently.


We offer lessons to all age groups and levels; a minimum age of 7 is recommended for entry level riders.
