✔ Sail all reaches with the XL board shape ✔XL-jibe ✔XL-tack  ✔Harness  ✔XL-pumping  ✔Benefit from wind shifts ✔Rig the sail ✔Safety sailing on your own
Estimated time:
15-30 sessions

XL- Practice fundamental techniques in lighter winds

XL level: performed in Extra Light winds (~ below 10 knots with XL shape)

This course is of big importance since it builds the base from which your technique can develop onward. With a solid base, the more advanced sailing Technics will be acquired more efficiently.  The XL courses will make you sail properly in all directions (close hauled, close reach, beam reach, broad reach and running) in light wind. Training in light wind improves the focus on technique.

Safety: Understand how to stay safe when sailing on your own

Equipment: Learn how to rig and set up your equipment on your own

Sailing theory: Learn to read the wind on the water. Understanding of wind shifts and how to benefit from. Sail all reaches. Harness lines usage incl. safety and  position/adjustments

Stance: Adjust your position on the board for a more relaxed sailing, learn downwind stance, Sail with a harness to get stronger, sail longer and be able to use larger sails.

Maneuvers: Learn the race tack, light wind jibe, the XL pumping. The pumping technic will make you faster and build your strength. It will also take you back even if the wind drops.

Board shape: The XL shape of Optimus, Invictus or Speedus uses a center fin, making the upwind sailing efficient.

Estimated time: 15-30 sessions combining XL classes with training on your own.

At a Glance L- level

Desirable Conditions:
A moderate breeze and fairly flat water:
Equipment:
L board size (L-board shape with only the back fin) combined with a Dynamic sail giving the power to lean towards the water
What you learn:
✔ Plane with the L board shape ✔Beach start ✔Passive  technique into planing ✔Use the foot straps ✔ Steer by carving    ✔Benefit from wind dust  ✔Trim your gear ✔Upwind with only a back fin
Estimated time:
15-30 sessions

Reaching the L-level – enjoy amazing planing speed

L level: performed in Light wind (~10-15 knots with an L board shape)

Just a small gust of wind will accelerate the L board onto the surface of the water (plane) and enable speeds exceeding 15 knots. This is when you get really hooked on windsurfing.

The L level is focuses on the following topics:

Safety: More about safety and how to stay away from trouble when going faster and longer distances

Equipment: Trim your gear for planing and get some knowledge on how the board shapes affect the sailing.

Theory: Feel and use wind shifts.  catch the dust.  Understand how the land formation affects the wind. Get back ashore upwind with only a back fin. Trimming and adjusting to the expected weather conditions

Stance: Stance for more power in the sail to plane. Use the passive but effective technique to get into planing already in lighter winds. Introduction to foot straps usage -take advantage of the easy access to foot straps built-in on the DW board when using the L shape.

Maneuvers: Easy bear off from the beach by beach starting technique. Carve the board into a jibe.

Board shape: L-shape with the only back fin of Optimus, Invictus or Speedus

Estimated time: 15-30 sessions combining L classes with training on your own

At a Glance M- level

Desirable Conditions:
A fresh breeze:
Equipment:
M board shape combined with a Dynamic sail giving enough power to get the board planing.
What you learn:
✔ Powered up on the M board shape ✔Water start ✔Physical technique into planing  ✔Power jibe ✔Duck jibe ✔Basic jumping  ✔Pro stance
Estimated time:
20-40 sessions

How to use the power from the sail the right way through the body and deliver this power to the board

M level: performed in Medium winds (~15-25 knots with M board shape)

At this level we focus on full planing conditions

Safety: Learn more about surviving in case of problems far offshore

Equipment: Set up your gear for high speed sailing, fine tune between power and control

Theory: Theory regarding how to use the power from the sail the right way through the body and deliver this power to the board. How to pump effectively. Deeper understanding of how to predict and take advantage of wind shifts.

Stance:  Practice to control your body position for best upwind performance with control of the fin pressure . Sail in high speed with a total control,  handle tail ride, full blast downwind with control,  avoid catapults.

Maneuvers: Pop up from the water with smooth water starts. Actively pump the board into planing. Carve the board with full speed into a planing jibe or duck jibe. Control power with your body (show off with a body drag or head dip)

Board shape: M shape of Optimus, Invictus, Speedus or Wavus

Estimated time: 30-100 hours combining M-classes with training on your own.

At a Glance S- level

Desirable Conditions:
Strong to gale with waves
Equipment:
S board shape combined with a smaller Dynamic sail size.
What you learn:
✔ Rough wavy conditions with S board shape ✔Passing shore breaks  ✔Lay down jibe ✔Backside riding ✔Bottom turns  ✔Top turn ✔Pro-Jump techniques
Estimated time:
20-40 sessions

S level: performed in Strong wind (~ above 20 knots with an S board shape)

As the wind increases, the waves are rising too. At this level, we focus more on how to deal with the waves and how to handle a small board. A bigger board such as M shape is too bumpy to use in a formed sea. S is designed like a classic sinker and requires precision in both: foot placement and the overall sailing technique.

Safety: Understand how the waves and current works. Learn how to protect yourself and your gear from the power of big waves.

Equipment: Get to know the s-shape board for wave sailing

Sailing Theory: Understand how to stay safe and get offshore and onshore from a beach hammered with breaking waves.

Stance: Learn how to sail at ease in wavy conditions, pass big shore breaks on your way out, ride them on your way back
