At our windsurf school it is all about the customer. We do not put you in a large group, but rather give private lessons, because that way you’ll learn a lot more.
The fundamentals of our lessons are:
- We have the latest and best equipment and we will have you sailing back and forth within 90 minutes!
- In terms of wind and location we are situated in one of the best places to windsurf in the Netherlands.
- Because we (mostly) teach private lessons, we can adapt the lesson to your needs and level. This allows very fast learning.
- Minimum age 6 years
- You decide which day and the time you want a lesson or course.
A brief summary of our range of lessons
Single windsurfing lesson
As a beginner you will learn within 90 minutes to sail back and forth in your first lesson. Advanced surfers use this lesson to improve their technique using footstraps, harness and learning how to get planing. We always adjust the level of the lesson to the experience of the students. If you book a lesson for 1 person, you’ll have a private lesson. If you want to bring some friends, you have a lesson with those friends. We never put you in a group with ‘strangers’. So, you decide what you want! If you want to learn as much as possible you book a lesson for 1 or 2 persons. If you want as much fun as possible you sign up with a bunch of friends.
The price for a 90 minutes lesson including a board, sail and wetsuit + surfing on your own for half an hour after the lesson:
1 person: € 65.00
2 persons: € 45.00 per person
3 persons: € 37.50 per person
4 persons: € 30.00 per person

After you have done one separate lesson of 90 minutes you can decide to continue with the course. The course consists of 4 lessons of 90 minutes. That way you can first see if you really like it!

Location Lutjestrand, Amstelmeer
1778 LB Westerland
+31 6 45552032
Our windsurfing school is located at the Lutjestrand (Lutjebeach) near the Amstelmeer (Amstel Lake). This is a lake with a water surface area of 2 to 4 km situated in the north of Holland. Because this lake is close to the North Sea, Wadden Sea and the IJsselmeer, we have very good wind conditions. In addition, there is ample parking and you can rig your sail on a grass area. Last but not least, the first 100 meters of the lake is waist deep water with a sandy bottom. All in all, an ideal location (to learn) to windsurf!
