Tips and tricks from the professionals
Brush up your skills! Trained professionals give individual and practical tuition in the VDWS-certified windsurf schools in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
It takes a bit more than large waves and a board for the big WOW effect. Get the right instruction from one of the many surf school spots in the state. Hooking up with the right people for the evening beach party included.
Every beginning is fun!
But first, of course, is finding the right spot. Even though you may love the cool water and energy-filled action – not every spot is suitable for beginners. But since Mecklenburg-Vorpommern’s coast and banks have a variety of standing areas, there’s definitely something to suit every ability level. And every spot has trained instructors who can help you to perfect your windsurfing style.
For example, complete beginners start with a practical beginner's course. This teaches the most important movement sequences, basic knowledge of the equipment, the rules as well as the dangers of improper or careless behaviour.
Since virtually all surf schools in MV are affiliated with the international VDWS Instructor Association, you can rely on having a balanced ratio of instructors to pupils, of a maximum of 1:8. Your advantage: instruction is more intense in small groups and you are given more individual attention. Newbie or trainee, a big plus in the surf schools on the Baltic Sea and Bodden is using the latest materials. Whether weekend courses or an entire week of seminars, everything is tailored to suit your personal needs.
