      Facilitate instructor and student introductions
      Introduce basic wind geometry.
      Demonstrate concepts interactively by using dryland simulator (basic mechanics of propulsion/direction & steering).

      Lead selection, retrieval and assembly of equipment (board and sail).
      Revise safety components of the lesson including: self rescue demo, boundaries and other hazards such as tide, current, and weather predictions.
