Come and windsurf with us! You get your personal windsurf board and sail to race all over the lake and compete with your friends. But don’t be afraid of getting wet, as balancing on a board can sometimes be difficult. Hang loose!
Surfing at the Splashweeks
Are you between 12 and 16 years old? Come join our windsurfweek!
Windsurfing is an individual sport that can be quite tough. When the winds are strong you’ll need your entire body to hold up the sail and to race over the water. When the winds are low it’s fun to do all sorts of tricks on your board. This way, windsurfing is fun for everyone!
We start the week with an explanation of the material, and we practise how to set up your sail. After that we try out some basic techniques on our surf simulator. Then it’s time to try it out on the water. The first experiences are usually quite wet, but practice makes perfect! When the balancing and steering goes well, we’ll race over the entire Sloterplas!
You’ll get your own windsurfboard and sail, with which you can do a race with your friends. The boards we use are well suited for beginners as for more experienced windsurfers. Don’t be afraid to get wet!
The activities are from Monday until Friday from 10am – 4pm. You have a lunch break (Mon-Thu) included, and on Friday we organize a picknick where everyone can bring something to eat!
