Stages of teaching are:
- Introduction on the beach on equipment, safety, balancing on the board & how to control the sail
- In the shallow water you start practicing balancing, sail control and how to change direction
- Together with the instructor you ride into the Bay and experience yourself riding on choppy water
- Once you feel comfortable you make a trip with the instructor to the close by island that has crystal clear shallow wate
- You start professionalizing yourself by learning basic tricks like the "jibe", how to change direction quickly & in a stylish way!
At different stages you will be provided with different board and sail sizes and eventually with a harness. It all depends on your individual progress and comfort, while keeping your safety as the first priority
