2017 marks the fifth year of our collaboration with six-time Olympic windsurfer Aron Gadorfalvi, whose team is responsible for the windsurfing classes held at Funside Balaton. At our Windsurfing Camp, we have 2 hours of windsurfing classes, each day Monday through Friday, at the beach near our camp. Kids who have never surfed before will start the first day with on-land simulation and in-water balance exercises. By the second day they will most likely be able to stand up on a surfboard, then mastering movement and rotation by the end of the week. More experienced students will get personalized training by our coaches to improve their skills throughout the week.
All equipment is provided by us at no extra cost. Wet suits are also available on request for cooler days, also included in the camp fee. For safety reasons, it is mandatory to wear a safety vest for in-water training (the vests are also provided) and students must be able to swim in order to take part in the windsurfing classes. Besides the 10 hours of windsurfing each week, you can choose another subject for the other 10 hours, which may be a foreign language, sports, arts or computer studies (see below for the full list of possible combinations). In the afternoons, you’ll have loads of fun activities with other Funside campers, such as a visit to the aqua park and many more (see list below).
