WIPA Certification Training – Day 1

Click on “View Detail”for Additional Information

Information below is as of 20 March 2023

Chad is volunteering to run another WIPA level I beginner non planning instructors course. We already have a nearly full class but there is one more slot available. The course will be the weekend of May the 20th 9a-5p on Saturday and Sunday.

This course will do two things. First, it will show you how to breakdown and teach basic non planning beginner skills to the WIPA standard. Second, it will improve your own sailing skills.

To obtain the certification these are the skills you will be learning and demonstrating.


Instructor candidates should sign up on the WIPA website  https://www.windsurfingipa.org/

Have basic windsurfing skills….  Be able to sail a course, complete tacks and perform non planning jibes some of the time.  If you don’t have full jibe proficiency you will after taking the course.

You’ll need a copy of  Tricktionary 3 it’s your instructors manual.  Finally you will need to have the desire and willingness to teach and spread the stoke of windsurfing to the masses.

If you are interested contact myself or Chad as soon as possible. I’ve stated this next course has only one slot available. We will likely create a wait-list after the final spot is spoken for.

Warm winds!
