Windsurfing Instructor Course




Windsurfing Instructor Course


We have teamed up with Flying Fish to offer a great option for your year out! Get not just one but two instructor qualifications under your belt, and get your dose of mountains, snow, sun, sand and sea this year. Our BASI 1 & 2 ski instructor course in Verbier has the option of two start dates, and will provide you with fantastic training towards your instructor exams over the ten week course. With the option to work with our established ski school after your exams, many choose to stay on and enjoy the whole ski season in Verbier, ending in April.

New for Season 2019-20!

Who is the course for?

Follow your winter season in Verbier with a summer on one of Flying Fish Windsurfing training courses! With three start dates in May, July and August, the 6 week courses are perfectly timed to allow you to head back home, ditch your winter gear and head back out to the sun.

The course is designed for beginners, with no other requirements than a desire to be on the water! The six week training course can also be extended with the option to take up two weeks of work experience following it, a great idea for those who want to instruct after the course. Flying Fish also offer the option of self-catered accommodation.
