Foiling Windsurfing Holidays

Hold tight for Summer 2018 as Windsurfing literally takes off! Ocean Elements will be among the first holiday companies to offer foiling windsurfing instruction in Greece using foiling boards from Starboard. If you can blast in footstraps and a harness, then you should be able to foil with Ocean Elements next summer! We are excited and proud to announce a new foiling programme designed to introduce you to this new wave of sailing. We have our very own foiling instructors at our Vassiliki beach club for 2018 – and they are a rare breed, keen to get you as hooked as they are to this incredible “new sport”.

A new adventure?

Foiling is ‘mind blowing’ and ‘magical’. Common expressions used by those who’ve been lucky enough to have experienced it so far. Also saying that it’s on a par with the first time they ever got planing! Flying across the sea without any sound and zipping along close to 30 Knots, what’s there not to love?

Overview:

Other Facts:

  • Fun Factor Off the scale!
  • First Flight course (2 Hrs)- £125
  • Sustained Flight course (6 Hrs, 2days)- £345

The Right Gear!

We will have a selection of dedicated foiling boards for summer 2018, for use under instruction (supervision) from our foiling instructors. If you have Advanced level certificate you may be able to “free-foil” on your own, using our kit. Dedicated foil boards are the way to go. They reduce the likely crash landing with more scoop (rocker) in the nose.

The Foil 122

New for 2018, the Foil 122 is thin for maximum foil control, with 100% sharp rail edges for early planing and a clean water release even when touching down. It is designed purely as a foil board. This helps to give the board more control, more performance and makes it more forgiving to foil compared to using a classic freeride windsurf board. 

The Foil 147

Continues as the balanced and stable foil board with a wider outline and a wider tail for more power and stability. The 95 cm wide outline coupled with a wide tail gives you a super-efficient shape that planes up early and gives you a high degree of control and leverage over the foil. The 241 cm length makes the board forgiving when dropping off the foil and helps the board take off.

Courses Available

We are offering tailored courses with our own fully trained RYA foiling windsurf instructors who are among the first in the country! 

Experience tells us that group lessons are the fastest way to learn. Take it in turns to experience our foiling machines and learn more quickly as a group by sharing ideas. 

Try from two course options: First Flight courses (2 hr foiling taster) and Sustained Flight course (2-half day foiling course) for a guest special price.
