Big Winds offers “Summer School”
We are proud and honored that Big Winds has ranked as a top windsurfing school (if not “the” top school) in the Gorge for over 25 years. We have teaching windsurfing down to a science, and in 2014 we have a menu of lessons, camps, and clinics for every level of student. We continue to get stoked when the wind picks up and we’re enthusiastic to share our expertise in getting people out and having fun on the water.
Here’s a snapshot of our Windsurfing School line-up:
Full lesson descriptions and dates for Windsurf Lessons are available on our website.
To summarize, we offer Three-Day Introductory Lessons, a Learn to Windsurf Package, Intermediate and Advanced lessons. We have two Women’s Clinics scheduled for July 12-13 and August 2-3, and our ever-popular Kids Camps run Monday through Thursday throughout the season. We also have six weeks of Advanced Junior Camps.
Beginner lessons are held at our Adventure Center inside the Hook, which provides a sheltered, safe environment for learning. Intermediate lessons are usually at the Event Site Center and Advanced Lessons will take place where the wind and swell are optimal.
Online signups are available for Kids Camps and the Advanced Junior Camps. Give us a call (888-509-4210) or shoot us an email to discuss further or to sign up for any lesson option. In the meantime, enjoy this short clip about windsurfing lessons…
If you are visiting without your gear, don’t have equipment or want to try something new, Big Winds offers a huge fleet of rental gear. Beginner equipment is available at the Hook and Intermediate/Advanced equipment can be rented at our Event Site Center (open 10-6 daily) or at our shop at 207 Front Street in Hood River. More information can be found on our main website.
Let us help guide you to the best lesson, camp or clinic for you and your family. We hope to see you out on the water soon!
