Wakestyle’s shop and our watersport and skate school base are in Bussum, Noord-Holland, Netherlands. We are strategically positioned and, thanks to the efficient Dutch roadways and trains, you’ll be able to reach us in just 20 minutes from many cities, like: Amsterdam, Utrecht, Hilversum, Almere, and Amersfoort. They are all nearby!
Depending on the discipline and weather conditions, our kite lessons take place in Almere (Marina Muiderzand), Muiderberg and Schellinkhout.
Foil lessons are solely given from Almere (Marina Muiderzand) where we have our boat.
SUP lessons are mainly given in Naarden Vesting, on the Gooimeer, in Muiderberg or in Loosdrecht.
The Skate school’s lessons can take place at different skateparks in Bussum, Naarden, Eemnes, Huizen, and soon also at the new Hilversum Nike Park!
What you need: For all the courses you just need to bring a towel and your favorite swimwear. Wetsuits, and technical gear are always included.
Maybe you didn’t expect it but, guess what? Kite spots on the IJmeer, Markermeer, and IJsselmeer waters present perfect conditions to learn how to kitesurf: wide spaces with shallow and flat waters plus constant wind. There’s no need to travel to exotic destinations to learn kitesurfing. Save the money for the airplane ticket and accommodation, and use it for buying your personal gear. Take the chance of special deals dedicated to our students!
By joining one of our kitesurf courses, you will learn about wind and meteorology, all you need to know about safety on the beach and in the water, everything about kite gear, and practice with our step-by-step instructions in the water until you’ll be finally able to waterstart and ride.
At Wakestyl,e we are foil enthusiasts. Hydrofoil fins have been a revolution for many sports, from kitesurfing to sailing, opening to new possibilities and totally new sports like Wingsurfing. Still, foil boards are technical gear that takes time to master.
Even experienced riders could have the feeling of having to start to learn from zero again!
With the help of our boat, an easier SUP-foil board, and WakeStyle's experienced instructors, you can learn to foil safe and quick in just one lesson!
Once you understand the hydrofoil dynamics and know how to ride a foil, you can apply it to your favorite sport: kitesurfing, surfing, windsurfing, wingsurfing, SUP...
Wingsurfing is undoubtedly the new trend for summer 2021, attracting both expert and first-time riders with no previous watersport experience. Anyone can do it!
The advantages of Wing Foiling are: easy to learn, less equipment, quicker to set-up, low wind riding and safety.
Wingsurf courses are divided into different blocks: A part on dry land, to learn how a foil wing works and how to set it up, and a part in the water, to learn how to get on the board, how to waterstart, and the pumping technique. Once you master these skills, it’s time to combine them and start to wingsurf!
Wing lessons are so divided into 3 blocks:
It is also possible to have some Wing Skate lessons on a longboard skate. This is ideal to improve your skills and also a good option to practice wing-foiling during the colder months of the year.
To those willing to enjoy the summer sunny days and warm weather in a more relaxed way, but still staying active, we offer StandUp Paddle courses, private lessons, and SUP tours! But make no mistake: supping is a total body workout!
SUP lessons will have an introduction on the shore, followed by a beautiful trip through a nature reserve. Our SUP Instructors will be next to you at all times, to improve your balance, posture, Supping technique, and making turns. Our SUP private lessons are both for beginners and more advanced suppers. All lessons are adjusted to your skill level so you learn the quickest.
To those who have little or no SUP experience we offer 3 days SUP courses, designed for those who would like to learn the basics of supping the right way. During the first lesson, you will learn the basic principles of supping and focus mainly on balance and posture. During the second lesson we continue to focus on posture and we dive into the paddling technique. The third lesson is a recap of the previous two lessons.
WakeStyle’s Skateboard School organizes:
Participants in the courses will be divided by level to form homogeneous groups, so that there will always be a challenging and satisfying experience for everyone.
Nothing is more fun than skating together and sharing the hype when you or your skate buddies land a new trick for the first time!
Our Skate parties for kids start with an hour lesson, followed by a refreshment and a present for the birthday boy or girl. After the break, the party goes on, with more time together at the skatepark to skate freely.
Skateboards and protection will be provided by us and one or more supervisors will be present all the time. You just need to bring your sneakers!
Skate parties are suitable for kids from 6 years old, with a minimum of 5 participants. If there are more than 7 participants, we will schedule 2 supervisors.
Adult and company skate parties are also possible, contact us to organize your own!
Practicing on a surfskate is the perfect way to improve your surfing skills on the mainland when there are no waves!
Within a surfskate, lesson you can learn how to pump to generate speed, bottom turns, cutbacks, and other surfing maneuvers. Being on dry land will help in identifying your errors and fine-tuning your surfing technique!
