Windsurfing Courses

RYA Windsurfing Scheme

Easy and Accessible

The RYA scheme is an easy and accessible way to progress in this exciting sport.

Stages are individually certificated courses for you to log your progression and recognise your achievements from beginner to expert.

Stage 1 gets you on the water, sailing the board across the wind and back. From this first taster, you’ll be hooked and in no time will be blasting across the water.

Once you’ve got to Stage 4, why stop there? You have all the skills to move on to the advanced courses and clinics in the National Windsurfing Scheme.

Please contact us to enquire about our windsurfing courses.

Progression Courses

If you already windsurf and are stuck learning to waterstart or carve gybe then Loch Insh is the perfect place for you to learn more advanced skills.

Our instructors will give you a wealth of information to work on and kick start your progression no matter how long it’s been since you last windsurfed.

MINIMUM AGE: 8 years
MAXIMUM PLACES: 12 (6:1 Ratio)


If you would like to join a club and meet the coolest windsurfers aged 15 and under, then Team15 is for you! You’ll get together every week, have a great time and learn new skills.

Team15 is a nationwide network of youth windsurfing clubs, offering weekly sessions at affordable prices, with an emphasis on fun. The Loch Insh Monsters meet Saturday afternoons from 2-4pm between April and October.

Inspiring Individuals

For the last 50 years, Loch Insh has been teaching and inspiring individuals in every aspect of the wide range of activities on offer at the centre. We have been lucky enough over the years to have had some truly inspiring people working for us, leaving their mark on the high standard of instruction we offer.

Safety is paramount, and we have strict in-house training, which conforms to all relevant National Governing Body’s guidelines. Beyond that we know the importance of allowing instructors to express themselves when teaching to give a more personal and enthusiastic approach to their lesson.
