At Boarderline Surf School in addition to kitesurfing lessons we also conduct Windsurfing courses, both beginner and intermediate courses.

Learning the basics of windsurfing is easy and fun, thanks in part to the experience gained over the years by our instructors, who will pass on to you all the notions necessary for the practice of this adrenaline-pumping sport.

Located in Dervio (Lecco), at Porto Vecchio, a favorite spot for windsurfing, we offer basic courses for all ages and intermediate courses. Thanks to our staff we are able to run courses in Italian, English and German.


Windsurfing courses for beginners

Lessons are conducted individually so that the instructor can follow the student for the entire hour of lessons and support him or her in their learning journey.

You will be supervised by the instructor who on board the dinghy will give you all the directions and advice for your improvement. At the end of the lesson you will be taken back to shore.

All the equipment used is designed to make it easier to learn windsurfing techniques and is adapted to each participant, as well as being frequently serviced so that lessons are conducted safely.

The courses are held in Dervio, a great spot to start windsurfing, as having constant winds makes it easier and safer to learn, for the same reason lessons are done in the morning with light wind conditions.
