Windsurfing lesson next Sat?

Post by lullullull » Wed, 03 Dec 2008 11:48 am

Hello Alice22, I just found out there's a windsurfing lesson next Sat at East Coast which I 'm going to sign up. :) It's 10am to 5pm, with 30min theory intro, swimming (to test our water confidence), simulator trial, and finally the real thing out in the waters.... It's $60 (if u want sign up 3 yrs membership for $40) or $85 for non-members.

Let me know if you are still keen coz I am probably heading down to make payment this week. Btw, the class size wont be more than 5, according to the staff.

Feel free to email me at yfsoh1@yahoo.com.sg if u want come along! Cheers!

With a humble beginning in 2006, Windsurfing Factor ( http://www.windsurfing-factor.os3.sg/index.html) has been offering windsurfing clinics to beginners. The team has since grown from strength to strength but our vision still remain when we first started: "To promote windsurfing as a lifestyle sport that is fun and enjoyable".

With this in mind, our team has initiated a list of programs that will appeal to both beginner and the intermediate sailors seeking to improve their windsurfing proficiency standard.

So come, join us and realize what windsurfing is all about!

Cheers,

Good day everybody :)

North-East monsoon has just ended recently and we are now experiencing a changing wind direction in Singapore. Generally wind is now light and coming from South-West. Good for beginners looking to start windsurfing :wink:

Cheers for the good wind!

Generally light wind days for the next 2 weeks ahead.
Showers and thunder expected in late afternoon.

For beginners looking to do the basic course, mornings are the safest bet :wink:

Water Venture offers 6 hours beginner courses every Saturday and Sunday. A price list can be found here.

As I'm a beginner as well it would be nice to have some company. I'm normally out windsurfing on Saturday or Sunday around ~1pm. So just drop me a line.

Hey there, are there any beginner courses during the week? Thinking of heading down to East Coast now, but not sure if jet lag will get the better of me later on!

Actually, have looked at previous post and possibly found some suitable options. Failing that, there's always next weekend - lets just hope there's wind about! 8-)

I'm also interested in learning how to windsurf. I was wondering how you guys were getting on with it. I was told that it was the wrong time of year by a local friend. Being new to Singapore and windsurfing I have clearly no idea! Is there enough wind for some good windsurfing at the moment, is there a season for it? Has anyone had a go at kitesurfing here??

Learning to windsurf

Post by Didsbury » Tue, 16 Jun 2009 11:56 pm

Hi, I went on the one day windsurfing 'training' a few weeks ago - we had decent wind on the day, but when I went back to practice later in the week, there was no wind, so it was a wasted session! I don't know enough about the sport to know when it is a 'good season' to windsurf - quite varied in Singapore I imagine! Could see some people just hanging around, waiting for the right conditions.

Definitely have a go and get lots of practice!!!

I just did the windsurfing class offered by PA Water Venture at East Coast a few weeks back. Quite a good one to do for beginners! Unfortunately, the weather was not quite cooperative - rainy and no wind! But it's still a blast learning! Will be going back so if anybody's interested, let me know! ;)
