Women in watersports, and ladies becoming windsurfing/sailing instructors, is a growing trend and one we want to encourage. Here at Watersports Nomad, we see this firsthand with our training courses. The ladies enter the industry as windsurfing, dinghy saying and paddle boarding instructors the better.
Watersports participation traditionally.
Traditionally windsurfing (particularly), sailing and other action sports have been dominated by men. Those Alpha males are the biggest representative demographic globally. And whilst we’re not criticising this we acknowledge there’s always been a need to balance this out.
This too includes the watersports instructor area of the industry. One big reason is because of the nature in which watersports are taught. Men and women, being anatomically different, have to refine their teaching methods accordingly. We all know everyone learns differently. So, having to slightly tweak the coaching methodology ultimately delivers a better experience for anyone wanting to learn.
Windsurfer Nicola Su sums things up: ‘I think often women have different challenges learning to windsurf, a female windsurfing instructor is inspiring and offers a similar perspective about how to tackle new challenges. I have found that my windsurfing has really progressed when being taught by a female instructor.’
Women in watersports, on the ground, in resort.
Having gotten qualified it’s then on to working as an instructor. On the beach, in resort, it’s all about the experience for guests. And having a better balance of male to female instructors is good for everyone. Many women beginner and improver windsurfers, for instance, appreciate being taught by female instructors.
Guests/students have different avenues to glean information for watersports progression. Whilst the coaching team itself can pick up tips from one another and evolve in tandem. There’s always more than one way to skin a cat, so the saying goes. With a more balanced gender group of instructors the coaching environment will be much better.
