Foiling Windsurfing Holidays

Foiling is a magic and almost unbelievable concept, but this growing niche is gaining enthusiasm as windsurfers of "Intermediate Planing" standard can learn to foil at our Beach Clubs on our specially built "easy-foiling" boards from Starboard.

If you can blast in foot straps, then you should be able to foil with our RYA instructors this summer and return home with a new RYA qualification. Our foiling courses follow the RYA national windsurfing scheme and the warm waters and predictable thermal winds at our Greek Beach Clubs help boost learning and enjoyment.

The Latest Foiling Boards

Foiling is now more accessible to Intermediate windsurfers through advancements in kit design. Our selection of easy-flight boards are dedicated foil boards and not boards adapted for foils.

They benefit from the latest design features to help promote sustained flight and limit mistakes such as more scoop in the nose to prevent crash landings. 

Our foiling boards are reserved for guests joining our RYA courses, for use under instruction (or close supervision) by our RYA foiling instructors. If you have advanced level foiling certificate you may be able to “free-foil” on your own, using our kit.

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.

RYA Foiling Courses

  • First Flight course (3 Hrs) – £89
  • Sustained Flight course (16 Hrs, 2 days) –  £295
  • Sustained Flight course (16 hrs private tuition) –  £445

Our tailored courses are run by our own RYA foiling windsurf instructors in small group sessions, no more than 1 to 4 pupils.

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