Dover Sea Sports bring to you the RYA Windsurfing Scheme courses for both adults and children.
With Dover Sea Sports being located on the sheltered foreshore of Dover Harbour, you will experience an ideal environment in which to learn to windsurf.
To help in your learning, we have chosen boards and rigs to suit both adult and children from the age of 8.
Our boards are designed for the beginner and novice. Being nice and wide, just in case you don't have the balance of a mountain goat!
A variety of courses are available. From taster sessions to RYA Level qualifications.
All courses are designed to build your knowledge, skill and confidence, whilst ensuring you have a lot of fun both on and off the water.
Not too sure if windsurfing is for you?
Try windsurfing before splashing out on a full course. Hourly taster sessions are regularly available for both adults and children.
Windsurfing Tasters are available at anytime from April to October half term.
RYA Stages and RYA Levels.
From the age of 12, you do Levels. Whereas the younger ones do Stages.
RYA Stage/Level 1 is a 2 day course
RYA Stage/Level 2 is a 3 day course
RYA Stage/Level 1 is where it all obviously begins and is generally scheduled over weekends as well as during the school holidays.
During the school holidays, both stages 1&2 may be completed over a period of 1 week. Or you may split the week over a period of time by completing Stage 1, enjoy your new found hobby by getting out sailing and then complete Stage 2 a few weeks later.
Private 1:1 tuition is available at anytime upon request.
Team15 is.........the windsurfing club revolution
Windsurfing has really started to take off here at Dover Sea Sports. 2014 saw us start our very own Team15 club, called 'The Dover Demons'
Then 2015 saw the club really start to work, with the Hythe Hotshots deciding to relocate to Dover because of the better training ground.
Team15 is for anyone aged 16 and under to get together every week and learn new windsurfing skills, having a laugh with their mates on the water. Since the same faces come back every week, you’ll definitely make new friends.
Whatever your skill level, regular windsurfing sessions will improve your windsurfing ability very quickly.
If you’ve never tried it before, you’ll have the basics mastered in no time. From first time windsurfer to a relative expert, Team15 clubs welcome all levels.
Team15 offers young people two opportunities; to be part of the weekly club sessions plus participate in the inter-club challenges where your team can go head to head with other teams in your region to decide an overall regional champion. Each club can enter the inter-club challenges with a team of up to 15 people aged 16 and under; Team15!
