Windsurfing Tuition & Courses*

All ResortsPicture

Ocean Elements offers inclusive tuition (free lessons) in all our Beachclubs. In Vassiliki, tuition is free for 5 days (3 hrs / day) and in Porto Heli and Leda, tuition is free for one Starter or Refresher lesson (3 hrs) on your first day, to equip you with the skills to use our great kit all week. Don't forget that all beach clubs offer you the chance to go Free Sailing if lessons aren't your thing! Free tuition starts at 13yrs +. Younger windsurfers should make use of our excellent Youth Squad programme. 

 

How to take part in a course
If you are keen to get a qualification during your stay, please ask our beach team on arrival and they will advise on how to make the most out of your week whilst getting the best out of your sailing. 

Younger guests can join our excellent Youth Squad for dedicated and focussed professional RYA tuition in order to maximise progression during their stay.

 


 

Children and Coaching:

Picture

All Resorts
Children under 13yrs can join our excellent (free) Kid's Clubs where they are on the water most days, messing around in boats, on boards or kayaks - in between shore based activities like face paiting, flip flop golf, mini resort adventures and so much more. Their actual windsurf or sailing experiences will be limited to taster sessions and joyrides. If you would like your child to receive professional coaching, our Youth Squad allows your budding water sports fans to really excel!

Youth Squad

£159 for 5 days (8-13 yrs)
YouthSquad is a club designed with young water sports enthusiasts in mind, from beginner to advanced ability. All Squad members will receive a ‘Youth Squad’ rash vest and dedicated coaching from our own Royal Yachting Association (RYA) instructors for 3hrs, 5 days a week. Youth Squad develops children’s water sports skills by following the RYA youth syllabus. Each child will receive an RYA logbook and throughout the week their instructor will sign off all their sailing and windsurfing achievements with the aim of returning home with a new qualification. Youth Squad is available in all resorts. Additional lessons are £25/hr.

 


 

Free-sailing

The beach is generally open from 10am until 6 pm (Vassiliki open until the last windsurfer comes in) with a break for lunch each day. Keen sailors can get out on arrival day, but only after attending our Beach Safety briefing. You may dip in and out of lessons at your convenience, and free-sail at your leisure, providing that you are sufficiently competent to sail a boat or board. If you require a starter or brush up lesson to be able to do your own thing - then that is of course what we can do for you on your first morning!


Picture

Our Instructors

All our instructors are all fully qualified RYA (Royal Yachting Association) professionals. All instructors are British, and carefully selected for their friendly, out going and energetic natures. They are full of advice for all levels: beginner to high level advanced sailors and on hand all day for advice, tips and guidance. They play an active role on and off the beach in all parts of your holiday, so outside of lessons they are always there to offer tips and keen to give advice.

 

Private tuition

All our holidays include tuition to get you started or to brush up some old skills. However you may prefer extra tuition or one-on-one tuition to help focus on a specific technique or skill. Private tuition is available as a paid for extra on arrival in resort and our very own Private Lessons Instructor will be on hand to advise and take orders. Lessons start at £25 per hour for one-on-one tuition, and £40 for one-on-two.
