Yes, we do! We have four hot showers that you can use for free as a student.
How can I pay?
Payment can be made in cash or with a normal debit card. Unfortunately, payment by credit card is not yet possible.
What if there is no wind?
The day before the scheduled wingsurfing lesson we will have contact. You will receive a message before 19:00 with a GO if the forecasts are good! Are the forecasts for the next day not good? Then you will receive a message with a NO-GO. You can then pick a new day yourself with the help of our planning system.
The number of lessons you need depends on your talent for wingsurfing and previous board sports, sailing and/or surfing experience. The average student needs about 4 lessons of 2,5 hours to be able to go on the water safely on his own. You are of course free to continue practising independently, because with us you are never tied to a package of lessons.
What is there to do for children/family/friends during my wingsurfing lesson?
In front of Vertigo Sports there is a large beach playground with, among others, a lighthouse with slide, cableway and water playground.
On the beach you will find Vertigo Sports' shop with clothing from Roxy, Brunotti, Quiksilver, Mystic and others with bikinis, shirts, jumpers and windbreakers.
De Dam's sun terrace is a great place to sit and enjoy the lunch menu or a drink. The roof terrace is highly recommended on a sunny day. Not so good weather? Inside, the fireplace is lit and you can sit back with a hot chocolate.

Yes! When you sign up, tell us the level you were at last time and we can continue from there. Our instructors always adjust the lessons to the level of the participants.
