Windsurfing is based at Hodge Howe, our RYA training centre, on the shores of Lake Windermere. With the very latest windsurfing boards and sails from Tushingham and Starboard to suit any size and experience, the School provides the perfect opportunity for beginners to advanced riders.


Pupils in Year 7 to 9 enjoy windsurfing as a part of their timetabled Adventure Programme. Those in Year 10 to 13 who wish to windsurf, can take it as an after-school activity and advance to the higher stages of the RYA syllabus. Windermere School’s highly motivated team of RYA Senior Windsurf Coaches have experience coaching the very latest beginner techniques to the more advanced racing moves. All instruction follows the RYA Youth Windsurfing syllabus with students learning the basics of how to get up and go, through to hooking in, and the very latest freestyle moves.
