Who's it for?
If you can sail a wave board and are looking to expand your knowledge and try some real down-the-line wave sailing, this Cornish wave course is ideal for you. We seek to develop your wave skills, whether you are new to waves or trying to perfect your moves. In the event of poor windsurfing conditions, the trip still goes ahead and we add in extra activities like biking, surfing and WindSUPing to get the most out of our time in Cornwall.
The Holiday & Coaching
The aim is to immerse ourselves for four days in great windsurfing and introduce you to wave sailing skills and wave environments. Gwithian and surrounding North & South Shore beaches offer various options and a great chance of waves. We cover choosing the right wave spots, tide times, launching tactics, encountering waves, jumping, front and backside wave riding and any other aspect of the sport! If the wind is light, then we'll either do WindSUPing, surfing, biking and still have a great time! We've been doing these West Country trips for nearly ten years and they are always popular, memorable and eventful sessions with a great bunch of windsurfers.
You must be able to sail a wave board and wind or no wind be up for a great Cornish adventure! Whilst the focus is absolutely on windsurfing, we will also seek both light wind and more varied adventures if the wind gods don't deliver. Surfing, SUPing, biking ad a whole lot more!
Other Holiday Highlights
Regardless of conditions, this trip goes ahead, so take all the toys! So as well as the windsurfing expect amazing country pubs, wine tasting, surfing, WindSUPing adventures, biking, hiking, BBQ's and a few surprises along the way!
Most of the group choose to stay at the wonderfully luxurious Gwel an Mor lodges with swimming pool, sauna, gym, golf course and loads more to do. We go for self catering to keep the cost down and also enjoy our communal breakfasts, annual 'cook off's' and also visit to some fabulous local eateries and pubs! The cost of this is not included in the course, but we have both single and shared room options in the stunning resort.
