Windsurf Lessons Fuerteventura

The spot at Risco del Paso and Costa Calma is ideal for kids as well as adults who are looking forward to learn how to windsurf or to improve their windsurfing skills. The venue at Risco del Paso is an ideal tuition area whether you are an adult or you want your kids to learn windsurfing. Our center in Risco del Paso Playa Sotavento offers a vast lesson program for you to choose from. The conditions for windsurfing lessons are excellent and enable everybody to experience an easy entry into the sport. Due to the high tide there are several shallow water areas in front of the center, especially during the 2 weeks of the month when the tide is very high. The shallow water area is separated from the open ocean by a sandbank, and is therefore a safe and protected lesson area that prevents students from drifting away. We also offer windsurf lessons for adults and kids at our second center directly on the beach of Costa Calma. At ION CLUB Costa Calma windsurfing beginners will find brilliant conditions to step into the windsurfing sport. Here you can enjoy the short walk from your accommodation to the center with no shuttle service needed.
