Where your windsurfing dreams become real stories…

Maybe a bit more confidence and efficiency with your waterstart would do you good? Is the carve jibe still on the list of your dreams? Join our freeride xperience with Kuba and get those all questions blown away with the wind. Experience Kuba`s unique teaching style and methods. Let your windsurfing life change forever.
 

Spot:
 

Why is Le Morne considered as the best windsurfing spot in the world? 

  • Side-shore wind – hop on the board and plane straight from the beach
  • Flat water lagoon - learn, blast and practice the skills 

  • Little side-shore waves on the entrance to the channel – perfect for jumping and loops 

  • Medium size waves side/side on at small reef – ideal for your first waveriding steps 

  • Medium to big size waves, side off winds at Manawa – down the line perfection 

  • No wind? No problem. Surfing and SUP paradise is right in front of you.
  • You can find a suitable place for your level and your practice as well as set your new goals and straight away move towards their realisation.

Minimum windsurfing skills needed:
 

You need to be able to ride up wind in the harness on the board without a dagger and make beach start. Ideal if you have experienced planning already, if not then very soon you will. 
 

Boards and extras:

You should reserve a board that you feel comfortable with in terms of the volume. The choice is between: Geko, Skate of Freewave. We might end up using various other boards like Viper or SUP, depending on the content of the class or conditions. Harness lines are the most essential factor of your comfort and you must have them long. Still using short lines? Soon you’ll say “Good Bye” to them. Ideal if you bring your own lines. Sizes between 30” – 36”. You can contact Kuba directly if you need any assistance in terms of your choice.
 

Training:

  • Trim your gear accordingly to the conditions and set it up properly – that’s the first thing you are going to learn.  If your tool is working fine, you have much bigger chances to do the job!
  • Comfortable sailing position and efficient up-wind ridding comes next. The essentials are: Stance - light and free, Sail - light and powerful, Board - light and maneuverable
  • Once you fully understand those principals and can apply them in your riding, getting in the footstraps shouldn`t be a problem. 
  • Waterstart is an essential skill that sooner or later you will have to work on. Good thing is that by now you are ready for it.  
  • Next step is blasting! Control your speed and learn how to go fast.
  • If you got to this point it means that carve jibe is within your reach. Let`s do it!
  • Coaching will be held on the beach (discussions, simulations, video analysis and sail exercises), on the water (sailing together, demonstration, filming from the water)

Daily subject will vary depending on the conditions. We might end up doing jibes, tacks or light wind freestyle moves in the lagoon, wind SUP riding on baby waves , SUP or surf in case of no wind.
