Keeping the wing high and weighting the forward leg helps complete a clean gybe (turn downwind)
Wingsurfing is a pretty simple step on from Paddleboarding- first parts of the lesson have the participants kneeling on the board, getting used to handling and steering the wing (sail)
After a short while of familiarising themselves to the wing (sail) and board, the participant learn how to stand up safely. Great achievement here after under two hours of tuition.

First wing lesson

5
Had a fantastic wing session this afternoon with Glenn. Really great guy and was excellent in explaining the theory and guiding me on the water. His clear concise direction really helped feel like I was progressing throughout.

Couldn't recommend highly enough, thanks again Glenn!

Thank you Glenn you are a fantastic teacher! My first try at paddleboarding and I stood up for ages, didn’t fall in, managed to steer and to get on the board too! I cannot recommend Winging It Watersports highly enough! If I can do it everyone can thanks to Glenn’s outstanding teaching!

First timers paddle boarding lesson

5
A friend and I booked our first timers paddle boarding lesson with our two sons (8 & 11).
We all thoroughly enjoyed it and Glenn really helped to take away any apprehension that we may have had. Amazingly we all learnt how to stand, manoeuvre, mount & dismount the boards with relative ease.
This has so far been my sons favourite day of the school holidays so far. Thank you for your patience Glenn.
Highly recommend.

Paddleboarding at Dedham

Glenn was very knowledgeable and thorough when it came to the the theory of paddleboarding and was great at putting us at ease with his friendliness. Paddleboarding at Dedham was an amazing experience and we both thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely recommend Glenn.

Great first paddleboarding experience!

5
We (42F and 7F) had a paddleboarding lesson with Glenn in Dedham. We were first timers but were soon confidently standing, turning and steering. Glenn gave clear instructions and advice and had chosen a very suitable (not to mention beautiful) venue for beginners. His enthusiasm and professionalism were evident. We are already thinking about booking again and bringing other family members!

7F (who used a children sized board) says "It was great. I loved it".
