DON'T WORRY, WE'VE GOT YOU

Two happy surfing students learning to surf in Amager Strandpark
I have no experience, can I also learn to windsurf?

YES! We promise you that by the end of your first windsurfing course, you'll be on the board and riding the wind. And you won't have to worry about being the worst in the class or fear that someone will laugh at you. You'll be starting a course where everyone is new, falling in the water and busy learning to windsurf themselves. You don't have the time or energy to keep an eye on others. On the other hand, our instructors look after you and guide you so that you succeed. And believe us when we say: We've seen it all, we've tried it all, we've helped everyone - and in our eyes, the best windsurfer is the one having the most fun!

Is it normal to start alone?

Yes, very normal. More than half of our cool surfing students arrive solo for the first time and before you know it, you're surrounded by cute and fun surf buddies.

How old are the other surfers?

We have a lot of surfers in their 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s, and we also have quite a few in their 60s. The oldest surfer we've hatched was 82 years old - so it's never too late to get started! However, you must be at least 13 years old to participate in our surfing courses.

Do I need to be strong to windsurf?

No, windsurfing is not about strength, it's about technique. And we'll teach you all the necessary techniques on your very first windsurfing course, so you'll be ready for action in no time. And before you worry that the technique is difficult, don't worry - EVERYONE learns to windsurf with us! Including you - and we've trained more than 6,000 new windsurfers since we started 8 years ago.

Is all windsurfing equipment included in the price?

YES! No matter what type of surf course you book with us, ALL necessary equipment (including wetsuits) is included in the price. The only thing you need to bring is a swimsuit for under the wetsuit and a towel.

Is it cold and do you have a wetsuit that fits me?

You won't be cold or sweaty! Our wetsuits are silky soft but thick enough to keep you warm throughout the course. And when you're done and changed, you can enjoy a cup of freshly brewed hot coffee or hot chocolate under our lovely heat lamps in the surf café. You can also rest assured that we can find a wetsuit for you. We have wetsuits in sizes from 2XS-4XL - because when everyone can learn to surf, there should be a suit for everyone!

EXTRA TIPS

Meeting Place and Changing

All windsurfing beginner courses, advanced windsurfing courses, surf events and other windsurfing courses are held on Zealand in Amager Strandpark at Amager Strand Promenaden 1, 2300 Copenhagen S. Just show up 10 minutes before your windsurfing course starts so you can check in at the café. Changing clothes takes place at the start time of your windsurfing course and can be done indoors or outdoors. We also offer you the opportunity to store your change of clothes and valuables safely in our surf café while you windsurf and have fun on the water. Get excited, because a windsurfing course with us gives you a sense of freedom, excitement and maybe even a few goosebumps. Get off to a great start with our starter course and build on it with our Master Class Windsurfing course.

What should I bring?

All you need to bring is a swimsuit and towel. Otherwise, our surf school has everything you need for a great day on the water: wetsuits, life jackets, surfboards, surf sails, surf paddles and happy and skilled instructors. We have wetsuits in all sizes, and windsurfing in Copenhagen has never been easier and more accessible than today. So hop on a surfboard with us and learn to surf on the latest windsurfing equipment with instruction and guidance from our knowledgeable surf instructors. Book a beginner windsurfing course, advanced windsurfing course or surf event and have a fun experience. With us, you're in good, safe hands!

Is windsurfing difficult?

No, anyone can learn to windsurf with us. At Copenhagen Surf School, we offer surfing courses at all levels, and our windsurfing courses and other surfing experiences in Amager Strandpark are organized so that everyone can join as soon as they are 13 years old. So whether you're a beginner or an experienced windsurfer, we have a course to suit you. The only thing we require of our students to ensure the best experience for everyone is that they can swim 200 meters. So book a surf course and come to our surf school in Copenhagen. We guarantee a great experience on the water with the best and most skilled surf instructors in the country!

Can you surf in all weather conditions?

Yes, pretty much! As long as the wind is between 2-14 m/s and not thundering, the conditions are perfect for windsurfing, and you don't have to worry about rain as our silky soft wetsuits will keep you warm throughout your windsurfing lesson. On rare occasions, the weather gods may be against us and we may have to cancel/reschedule your windsurfing lesson, but in that case you will of course be notified as soon as possible so you can easily book a new surf lesson. This is the reason why we start all our windsurfing in Copenhagen in April and end in October, as this time of the year usually offers optimal wind and weather conditions for windsurfing in Denmark. It's important to us that you learn to surf in a safe and comfortable environment at our windsurfing school in Amager Strandpark, and of course we follow the usual safety rules and routines that you should and must follow when windsurfing, surfing and generally being at sea.
