Instructor Courses

Windsurfing start and intermediate instructor and professional training courses here in Colwyn Bay, run with the support and cooperation of the Student Windsurfing Association, but open to all.

Impressing a member of the opposite sex with your occupation? The way it works is 1) Astronaut 2) Fighter Pilot 3) Windsurfing instructor. In association with the SWA we will be running three start and one intermediate windsurfing instructor courses here at our brand new centre in Colwyn Bay, North Wales. Time to get involved.

You will also need your powerboat level 2, and one of the first aid qualifications accepted by the centre you hope to teach for (to be sure of this – get RYA First Aid) If you want your windsurfing instructor ticket to be coastal, the other qualifications will also need to be coastal.

For students, this not only allows you to give something back to your windsurfing club through developing your beginners in a structured and competent way, but means you are hot property for seasonal summer jobs. Demand for peak season windsurfing instructors in the Mediterranean could not be greater, and at the moment we are talking to Mark Warner about guaranteeing interviews for students who have come through Colwyn Bay – there is talk of them coming up to interview in Colwyn Bay during the courses. Last Easter we had two students on the plane within a week of their course.

If you are already booked on a course, the pre course information for start and intermediate instructors including details of the materiel you will need to prepare will be sent out on booking, or click the links. Please ensure you thoroughly read all of the pre course information.
