Windsurfing lessons in Aveiro

If you have never windsurfed before, Aveiro is a great place to learn. Tugar works with a certified windsurfing school that offers windsurfing lessons in Aveiro’s lagoon. The lessons are suitable for all ages and levels, and the instructors are qualified and experienced. They will teach you the basics of windsurfing, such as setting up equipment, proper posture and movements on the board, and navigating the water.

Lessons are usually taught in small groups (max 4 pax), but you can also book private lessons if you need more personal attention.

It is important to remember that windsurfing is a physically demanding sport, so it is essential to prepare yourself for the lessons. You need to be fit and healthy to have the strength and stamina to stand on the board and manoeuvre in the wind. Wearing the right clothing and equipment is also crucial to protect yourself from the elements and avoid injury.
