To give you an idea what to expect and how much time to calculate for your Windsurfing lessons here is a summary about learning steps and corresponding lessons. The given time lines are representing an average learning progress. If you need more or less time to learn always depends on your personal fitness, previous experiences from other sports and the type of coaching you choose. As with me you book YOUR Personal Trainer you can do as many hours a day as YOU like and learn at YOUR pace.
None or very little Windsurfing experience.

Windsurfing with harness in intermediate winds, Beachstart should be no problem.
LEARNING STEPS Advanced level:

ADVANCED LESSONS II
Now we focus on maneuvers and techniques for Windsurfing in strong wind so these lessons can only take place in corresponding wind conditions. Because of the more complex maneuvers these lessons are calculated as 2 h private sessions and ideally combined with a windsurfing rental package to provide you with enough time to practice in between the lessons.
