Sky High Watersportacademy Workum & Lemmer provides the customers with best and newest windsurf equipment whereby improvement of the surfers grows the fastest. We provide special equipment for kids and also faster boards for the more experienced surfer.
In Workum and Lemmer we use windsurfboards of brand Starboard. Starboard is at this moment product leader in the windsurf industry. After Starboard invited the Sky High Watersportacademy crew to Spain to test the latest Starboard boards we tried several windsurf beginner boards. The best beginner windsurfboard was following our opinion the Starboard “WindSup” boards. This is a multifunctional board which allows you to go not only windsurfing but Stand Up Paddling (SUP) as well. The boards don`t have a centreboard but an extra fin in the middle which is called “centre fin”. With these boards you only have a big deck underneath your feet. You don’t have to take care that you are stepping on the centreboard.
The windsurf department of Sky High Watersportacademy is connected to the VDWS (Association German windsurf schools). De VDWS is world biggest overreaching watersport organisation. There are more than 5 hundred schools connected with the VDWS.
