Delta Windsurf summer camps focus on maintaining a safe and fun learning environment! Suitable for first-time windsurfers as well as experienced windsurfers from ages 7 to 17.
Camps are held from 10:00 am - 5:00 pm, with a lunch break from 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm. Sherman Island County Park provides an ideal location with a sandy beach, shallow water, and warm weather.
Mornings are spent on safety and light wind fundamentals. Beginners and younger kids will focus on balance, the wind clock, and how to safely sail out and back. Later in the week, simple turns will be introduced.
More advanced riders will focus on efficient beachstarts, waterstarts, and planing. For surfers already comfortable planing in the straps, the focus will be on light wind and high wind freestyle.
Water safety, equipment care, and teamwork will be emphasized overall.
Our student/instructor ratio is 5:1, with one instructor focused on advanced windsurfing, and the other on beginners. For kids who are too tired to sail all day, we have a counselor on the beach for afternoon beach activities: arts and crafts, beach games, and practice on the windsurf simulator!
All of our instructors have years of experience teaching at multiple schools, and use ABK Boardsports and Tricktionary as our blueprint. We're excited for this opportunity to bring more kids into the sport!
