The Coaching

The course is run by Simon Bornhoft so you'll get the fully proven WINDWISE Skills Training System, with very specific exercises, sequences and routines to hit the parts that 'tips, videos and YouTube don't reach' don't reach. Our very specific methodology will help your windsurfing flourish and show you the gateway to your next level.

We use a mix of unique WINDWISE land and on water skills training drills and exercises to get the body to do what the mind wants it to do.


What should I bring?

Unless you're hiring from us, please bring all your kit, including a board plenty big enough to easily sail in on non-planing conditions, as the course will go ahead even in non-planing conditions as there is so much we can teach you in all winds. Bring your wetsuits, harness, wetsuit booties, sunblock, all weather gear, a pack lunch and plenty of fluid to keep hydrated. If we're sailing from Hayling seafront, bring £6 (coins) for the car park.


Location & Meeting Details 

We essentially use two different locations depending on the course level, conditions and state of tide. We'll let you know which one is for your course. Should there be a change of location we'll let you know prior to the course.

Esso Beach, Langstone Harbour
Half a mile after going over Hayling bridge you'll see an Esso petrol station. Right next to the petrol station is a small lane which takes you a car park over looking the harbour. This works perfectly for high tide sessions. There are no facilities at this location, so use the toilet at the Esso or Texaco petrol station.


Hayling Seafront
We use the seafront for low tide days, because it forms a large flat water lagoon. We meet at the end of the car park, right past the Inn on the Beach at the end of the beach huts next to the golf course. Don't forget to bring some coins for parking meter. We launch in front of the golf course.

Thanks again for the great week. Kat and I loved it and felt progress was made on all fronts!!

Noel Goddard

Despite the light winds I learned masses from Simon in such a short space of time. Within weeks my sailing had moved to the next level.

Keith from Cornwall

"I am well chuffed with what I achieved with your help and I came away from the course with all boxes ticked. I'm not exaggerating when I say that you completely transformed my sailing from someone who was nowhere near the straps on a 145l board to someone who was flying around, fully committed in the harness, feet in both straps on a 113l board and feeling pretty relaxed about the whole thing. The course was exactly the right balance of talk, analysis, demo and doing - it exceeded my every expectation and I will definitely be back. All I did was turn up, listen to what you told me to do and things just clicked into place – brilliant!"

Ty Owen

Thought I would sent you this email to say, massive thank you for the two days I've spent with you Hayling/Southend . 1st you got me planning carve gybes then  Southend.
Better jumping , not to mention all the other stuff taught on these days. Recommended 'guaranteed success' Thanks again See you soon.

Simon Chippington

"Thanks for a great couple of days training. I really enjoyed it and got a lot out of it. We were so lucky with the conditions. I feel as if I now know what to do when tacking - although need to spend more time practising. The early planning instruction definitely helped. And I made progress with the gybing rig rotation - keeping the clew upwind and 'kissing the guns' definitely my gybes at the end of the afternoon."
