The answer is short and simple. Virtually everyone can swim on the board. Almost every sport practiced as an amateur does not require excessive physical predispositions. Our youngest floating students start their adventure on the water at the age of five. The one-on-one training system for children, developed over many years of work, means that the instructor is usually almost at your fingertips from the youngest students. This training system makes the student safe from the first step on the board until the moment when he finishes the lessons with a smile. The oldest students actively swimming our lessons are in the seventy years old.
For over twenty years of practice, our windsurfing school has hosted various students in its lessons. However, those who, despite health difficulties, decide to face wind and water are remembered. Each such lesson is a challenge for us and we make every effort to ensure that our students come back to us in the next season. An eleven-year-old student who is completely deaf, does not read the lips and does not blink deserves a special mention. A forty-year-old student with a hip prosthesis and a slight paresis of one side of his body. The whole group of children with type 2 diabetes and a blind teacher who went out to the water “once for a test” and then came to lessons every day until the end of her stay in Krynica Morska.
All classes at the beginning of the training take place in shallow water. So that the student is in contact with the bottom after falling from the board into the water. More advanced students who sail further in uncomfortable situations can always count on the help of a trained employee on a speedboat. The activities of the youngest children are always held in shallow water, not exceeding 1.2 m.
Windsurfing a Covid.
After signing up for lessons and receiving the equipment from the instructor that the windsurfing school provides for the lessons, the student has practically no physical contact with other participants of the training. Passing on the water for several or several meters, he does not push himself with others like on a basketball court or rubs like players during a volleyball match. Wetsuits and life jackets are ozonated every day in a specially prepared chamber. In the era of a pandemic, we also recommend customers to buy their own windsurfing wetsuits. In a popular sports market, it costs from 60 PLN in the case of children’s wetsuits. In the case of wetsuit for adults, from PLN 80 upwards.
