                              COURSE ORGANISATION AND SAFETY

                              We understand that besides professional tuition, the most important thing when it comes to improving your windsurfing skills is time to practise. Our instructors will create a safe learning environment, enabling you to train and to receive professional feedback on your actions. 

                              Depending on the type of lesson and content we either teach you in small groups or individually.

                              In order to provide you with instant feedback especially during our advanced lesson program, our instructors use Radio Headsets enabling them to communicate with you while riding.

                              Flexibility

                              We understand that choosing a Windsurfing lesson package from home might be difficult. Don´t worry! No matter which package you choose, if during the lesson the instructor realizes that another package would be more suitable for you, you can always change that on site. You will never have to join a lesson, which actually doesn´t suit your expectations or level.

                              After every session your instructor will give you detailed feedback and recommendation on how to continue – no matter which course you initially booked. Your success and progress is all that matters to us!

                              A word about

                              ION CLUB Essaouira

                              Essaouira is a coastal city with beaches as far as the eye can see and counts amongst the "model destinations" for windsurfers, kitesurfers and surfers worldwide. The architecture of the old town is strongly influenced by Portuguese, French, and Berber culture. The massive appearance of the walls gives the city a mystical sublimity and explains it’s original name “Mogador“ – small fortress.

                              Essaouira is a perfect all-round spot, with great conditions for windsurfers, Kitesurfers, and Surfers alike. The wind blows side shore from the right and especially during the summer months, the steady trade winds get reinforced by the thermic and often reach up to 6-7 Bft.

                              Our ION CLUB Center in Essaouira is situated around 20 minutes walk from the Medina and offers beside the latest equipment from Duotone, Fanatic, and ION all facilities you could wish for.

                              The Ocean Vagabond Restaurant and Bar next door, takes care of hungry and thirsty Surfers and offers sunbeds to relax on the terrace.
