Windsurfing as a sport never ceases to amaze. Just when you thought that progression had plateaued, along comes a new manoeuvre, a more ridiculous wave ridden or a legendary event seeing the competitors charging with reckless abandon. At an age when seemingly every watersport has entered the world of foiling, it is windsurf foiling that has come of age. It is now very much within the reach of the intermediate planing windsurfer, and what is more, Portland Harbour is absolutely incredible for it! With enough water at any tide state, and with conditions rarely lighter than 10knots of wind, the number of days that ‘planing’ windsurfing can be enjoyed has just rocketed, thanks to the foil. Here at the OTC we are proud to be one of the early adopters of windfoiling, and have helped the RYA to pioneer their Windfoiling Teaching Scheme. We have one of only two RYA windfoiling trainers currently (March ’18), and the first two advanced windfoil instructors ever! As a result, we can provide all of the windfoiling courses within the RYA pilot scheme: First Flights (2hr taster), Sustained Flights (2 days) and Performance Flights (2 days).
