Windsurfing for beginners

Postby strassih » Mon, 03 May 2010 3:38 pm

Hey there,

staying here for 3 month and wanted to do a beginners course for windsurfing. Heard about water venture on the East Coast. Anybody knows more clubs or options to do windsurfing? Courses are at 85 $, so maybe there is some cheaper option?

thx

Henrik

Mana Mana Beach Club that is just right behind the East Coast Hawker Centre does windsurfing courses too but the prices are higher. Comparatively, Water Venture East Coast has a bigger class size than Mana Mana, but Mana Mana is more personalised I suppose. However they run lessons based on demand (I think) but Water Venture has them practically every sat & sun.

What I suggest is going to both clubs and talking to them about the course and observing how lessons are conducted before deciding. They are only about 20mins walk / 5mins drive apart.

And if you're thinking of pursuing the sport after your course, you might want to note that you can rent equipment from Mana Mana even if you didn't take the course from them, but at Water Venture, you need to be certifided by them before you can rent.

Thanks! Sounds good.

I found this possibility for water venture.Think that I´ll join this cause of the students fees:

Can´t reply to pms at the moment. Not enough postings. So I´m taking the course May 9, 2010.

You need 5 posts to PM, but apparently if you post a new topic you can PM as well I think.
