Windsurfing Holidays

Whether you’re a total beginner or gung-ho expert, we have your perfect windsurf holiday in any one of our idyllic Beach clubs. Our personal ‘small-centre approach’ promises the very best on-the-water experience for all abilities with windsurf tuition included in the cost of your holiday.

Each of our Beach clubs has been hand-picked to offer the most consistent and reliable condition; expect a gentle morning breeze every day before the thermal wind builds to offer exciting windsurfing after lunch.

 



 

Inclusive tuition

Tuition is included free of charge for five days a week in all our centres and our friendly team of RYA (Royal Yachting Association) water sports instructors make each session fun and welcoming. You can even go home with a new internationally recognised RYA qualification for no extra charge too!

Tuition in Vassiliki is inclusive for beginner to advanced and delivered as a full 5 day RYA course which you can dip in and out of. In Porto Heli and Horto-Pelion, tuition is inclusive for beginner to intermediate (non-planing) and also delivered as a 5 day course. You can take advanced tuition as a private session, (paid for locally).

Sessions are grouped into ability and our instructor/guest ratio is normally 1 to 6. Group lessons are always popular and very sociable as guests get to meet each other and share good times afloat! There’s no need to book before you travel, it’s all done at the Beach club.

Free Sailing

If you can already windsurf then there’s no need to join a lesson unless you want to! Simply choose a board and let the beach staff know and they’ll help you rig the kit and you’re off.

Intermediate Planing

You’ve experienced the first part of windsurfing and can already sail on all points in light winds. This is when windsurfing really gets exciting because now it’s time to build on skills and get the board planing! You’ll be going out in stronger winds, working on faster tacks, using the harness and getting into the foot straps. There’ll also be sessions on beach starting and carve gybes; getting you ready for blasting control!

You’ll need a bit of breeze to plane so although all our centres offer planing conditions, it’s best to visit Vassiliki and Horto-Pelion for the best of it.

We include level 3 Intermediate planing lessons for free in Vassiliki (5 days 3hrs a day). This course is not included for free in Porto Heli and Horto-Pelion but you can pay for private tuition to cover this level.

Advanced Windsurfing

Advanced windsurfing is taught as a series of clinics over our free 5 day RYA course (3hrs a day) in Vassiliki. In other centres you can pay for private tuition to cover any of our clinic-modules which include advanced planing, waterstarts, carve gybes and carving.

Session topics are decided on the day taking into account weather conditions. Our instructors will also take your requests and even help you nail a particular trick if that’s what you want… they are there to push your windsurfing and ensure big grins all round!

Our expert and Pro coaches are on hand to offer advice and help, even outside of lessons. We use video coaching, speed boat coaching and on-shore training simulators plus the very latest boards and sails (in Vassiliki) for you to use.

You’ll need the very best conditions so it’s best to head to Vassiliki where the morning calm allows you to try that new trick or practice new moves; and the afternoon breeze reliably builds to a steady Force 3-6 or 7 most days. In Vassiliki, all levels of tuition up to advanced is included for free with all holidays and taken as a 5 day RYA course (3hrs a day).

And remember, there's always safety cover and help with getting back to shore if need be! The beach is open every day from 9.30am until the last person comes off the water so you can windsurf all day if you want to!
