Make 2019 the year to become a windsurfer!   WINDSURFING is fun, exhilarating, and EASY TO LEARN.

Whitecap provides US Sailing certified beginner-level instruction to a small group of students, numbering no more than five per session.

      See Lessons Photo Album here.   



Whitecap uses US Sailing's certified instruction program on specialized equipment such as a rotating land simulator, anchored tethers in the water, and special training boards and sails.

Safety, equipment, rigging, and weather is covered. Students will leave the lesson knowing how to uphaul, sail, steer, and turn a sailboard.


EVERYONE CAN LEARN TO WINDSURF! Revolutionary changes in instructional methods and teaching equipment have made the sport accessable for all: men or women, adolescent to old-age, thin, and, uh, not thin. Extreme athleticism is not required! Light women usually learn quicker than the muscular males.

Groups are usually 2 or 3, never more than 5. Individual attention is assured.

Places To Sail

LEARN RIGHT HERE ON YOUR LAKE. Lessons are most often offered at Whitecap's home lake, Clark Hill near Augusta. But, if you have a group, under certain condiditons, I can bring all my stuff to other areas lakes or the nearby SC & GA coast.

Our area lakes and relatively calmer coasts are great places to sail regularly after you learn. Become part of the local surfing tribe!


Lessons are offered on most warm-weather weekends from mid-April to September. Requests for weekday lessons can usually be accommodated.

Lessons usually last between 5 to 6 hours, so you may want to bring a lunch and snacks.


A positive, can-do attitude and decent swimming ability.
