What you'll do

You will know the region of the beaches and lagoons of Cumbuco.

Windsurfing lessons are tailored to your level of knowledge of the sport. Is it your first time? Do not worry! I am experienced in teaching classes to children and beginning adults. The places where classes take place are safe for water sports even for the inexperienced.

Activities start at the lagoon. First let's get to know the place and the equipment. The theoretical part is played on the beach and in this part all the members of the group participate. Simultaneously they do "dry training".

Then we enter the water keeping balance above the board. Already at the beginning the fun begins. Usually it includes some falls and climbs back to the board, but soon everything fits and the first tens of meters of sailing still appear in the first hour.

The exercises follow: sail lifting, basic position, starting, sailing position, zig-zag, landing, transitions, tack, jibe, planing, trapeze, handles ...

Afternoons are always dedicated to training and reinforcement of everything learned. Each student will train maneuvers according to their rhythm of learning and personal interest. The goal is to rediscover your potentials.
Other things to note
It is not necessary to know how to swim, nor to have previous experience with windsurfing or water sports. Do not worry about equipment: I have everything you need. The place is suitable for beginners.

I have 35 years of experience in windsurfing. I worked as a helper at the windsurfing school Liberan, Croatia, in the seasons 2003/2004. From 2005 to 2007, I worked as an independent trainer in Croatia and Slovenia. I obtained training as an instructor in 2007 by Jadralna zveza Slovenije. I am an instructor in Ceará since September 2008, attending students from 7 to 70 years of age in the region of Cumbuco, Tabuba and Lagoa do Cauípe. I have equipment to adapt the class according to the wind conditions and the level of experience of the participants (from beginners to the most experienced).

Where you'll be

The Cumbuco region has lagoons, dunes and lots of green space. Some paths are of beaten sand, which can be explored with more adventurous groups. In the points that we are going to visit also it is possible to practice swimming, kayak, volleyball, etc. They are close to the beach, where it is possible to cool off by jumping on the Atlantic waves. Lunch is optional at local restaurants. For dinner, you can choose from dozens of restaurants and squares.

Zlatko's lesson was fantastic. He is a very professional/skilled instructor. His feedback was valuable as I improved greatly throughout the class. I would recommend the class to anyone and any level be it beginner/intermediate/expert.

Zlatko é uma figura! Além de ser gente boa, nos deixa muito confortável durante a aula. Super paciente e com a melhor estratégia pra ensinar a quem nunca praticou windsurf. Não vejo a hora de voltar e ter mais aulas! Explicou tudo direitinho e repetiu quantas vezes foi necessário. Recomendo demais!

Encontrei esta experiência no Airbnb quando procurei algo diferente para fazer na região e posso dizer que foi um dos pontos altos da parte turística da minha viagem! O Zlatko é extremamente educado, atencioso e paciente, incentivando bastante o progresso durante a aula, além de ter muito conhecimento prático e teórico sobre como velejar. Sem dúvidas, uma experiência que repetirei em outra ocasião e que recomendo a todos os interessados em esportes aquáticos!

Zlatko é uma figura ímpar! Além de ser muito bem humorado e excelente anfitrião, é também um professor excelente. Mesmo sem nunca ter feito nenhuma aula, ao final de cerca de meia hora eu estava velejando (claro que levando uns muitos tombos e escutando toda hora ele me avisar para não "brigar com o vento"). Foi excelente e assim que eu puder voltarei para novas aulas!
