Advantages of the VDWS Recognition
VDWS e.V. was founded in 1974 with the aim, inter alia (see by-laws), of: Assisting and promoting windsurf schools, Training windsurf instructors, Developing training materials for beginners and advanced students etc.
We try to cope with these tasks and therefore offer a wide range of training materials. Beside theoretical documentation, we offer advertising means, accessories, fashion, neoprene as well as school and rental sails. They are all in the same red/yellow colour line for an optimum Corporate Identity. Our articles are sold at rock-bottom price – some of them at chest -.
Each year VDWS organizes management meetings for all school members (national and international) to show up and discuss trends, developments, future tasks and projects to be picked out as a central theme and to be discussed constructively. This anual "come together" offers the opportunity for an intensive exchange and coordination to the worldwide center managers.
