Hi All,

We are coordinating with an intercity At-Risk Youth organization to host a Learn to Windsurf day in Alameda in September. These are children that do not have the means or the encouragement to try sports like windsurfing.

Our goal is to expose these children to our wonderful sport and make this a day for them to remember. We are providing the gear and instruction, but we wanted to invite the rest of the Bay Area community to join us. The more volunteer instructors encouraging the kids, the better. It's a great way to give back to the community - sharing something that you love.

We do not have the exact day established yet, but if you would like to be a volunteer for this event or others like it, please email me at info@BoardSportsSchool.con with your contact info.

Thanks!

Good for you, what a great idea.

Will you do one at Coyote point?

Epenrose,

At the moment, we don't have an event like this set up for Coyote. I want to be there for a season to see if this would be possible. Right now Alameda has 20 beginner boards in addition to about 10 kid's specific rigs and some small adult beginner rigs. We're just better set up for this in Alameda.

But that doesn't mean that we won't plan one for Coyote in the future.
I know it might be a long drive, but if you can make it (once I get the date nailed down) we would love your support.

Thanks,
-Rebecca

Hi Everyone,

The date/time of this event is Sept 13th from 2-5pm. We will need volunteers there about 1 hour earlier to help set up and to chat about the game plan for the rest of the afternoon.

Thanks!
