Marina Parque das Nações, in partnership with the Elisiario.com Windsurf School, challenges you to be part of the new Windsurf workshops, which will be held in the Marina Parque das Nações Nautical Centre. The lessons are adapted to the student’s rhythm and the techniques taught enable you to test the maneuvers learnt in open sea.

Programs:

Two distinct phases for learning windsurf

Theory: Concepts of aerodynamics, safety, surroundings and functioning of the board and sail;

Practice: In the water, where the theoretical knowledge and skills acquired are put in practice.

The purpose of this course is to let students practice independently and safely, managing the board and evaluating potential risk elements, security, priority rules and respect for other users.

After initiation students will be oriented to the following levels:

LEVEL 1

  • Assembly and nomenclature;
  • Start and direct the board with light wind abeam (6 knots);
  • Flip-board (static turn).

LEVEL 2

  • Control the board and off the bowline;
  • Gibe with light wind (6 knots, turning static).

LEVEL 3

  • Sailing with moderate wind (12 knots);
  • Compensate the pressure on the sail with your body weight.

Teaching methods:

This system consists of a helmet with a radio intercom that enhances the learning experience through a real time communication with the trainer, helping the participant obtain faster and better results.
