Personal challenge

First, we guarantee to improve your performance on the water.

Next, if you are looking for a personal challenge, you won’t find one more satisfying than learning the skills of an instructor: technical knowledge, safety awareness, communication skills, people management and motivation.

These are important soft skills and  transferable to any career, so the Flying Fish experience makes a great addition to your CV or resume.

Once you’re qualified?

Now it’s up  to you. You can get an instructor job, go travelling or continue training.

Many Flying Fish students combine windsurfing with another sport – dinghy sailing, scuba diving, mountain biking or a snow sport. If you can teach more than one sport, employers will be chasing you around the world.

Get a job

We can also help you put a CV together and give you some top tips about working in the water sports industry.
