Lessons range from 1-2 hours, and are open for adults or children to join (children joining must be at least 6 years of age).

Trial Lessons


By using the sail attached to the board, be propelled by the wind and glide across the surface of the water. This is said to be a sport that combines both surfing and yacht sailing.

Windsurfing can be enjoyed by anyone, no matter their strength, age, or gender. Windsurfing is a lifelong sport that you can continue to enjoy, regardless of age.

After just a short time of getting the hang of it, even first-timers will soon find themselves gliding along with the wind.

Try windsurfing for yourself at the world stage of Tsukuihama Beach!

SUP (Standup Paddleboarding)

A marine sport where you stand atop a surfboard, and paddle yourself with an oar along the water’s surface.

As the boards used are stable, even first-timers are able to soon stand up on top the board.

As you leisurely follow along with the surface of the water, it’ll give you the feeling as if you’re walking on water.

This is also a sport that allows you work out and strengthen your core.

Feel free to try for yourself, the marine sport of SUP!
