Foiling Windsurf Courses

RYA Training Centre

 

 

RYA ‘First Flight’ Course

  • Cost: £99
  • RYA Foiling ‘First Flight’ certificate
  • Experience required: Good Intermediate 
  • Runtime: 3 to 4 hours 
  • Group size: 1-4 pupils
  • Where? Surf Hotel, Vassiliki & Akti Beach, Kos
  • Book: Before you travel or in resort*

Course Content

This is the first course in the RYA scheme, providing you with a basic introduction to foiling, seeing you take your first flights, as well as providing you with basic foiling knowledge. This 3 to 4 hour session is a lot of fun and will have you buzzing as we get you foiling for the first time!

To take part you need to be at Intermediate Planing standard. That is, being comfortable at blasting in foot straps; so if you have completed the RYA level 3 windsurf course, this is a good indication of the standard required.

About the First Flight Course

The course lasts for approximately half a day and runs for 3 to 4 hours depending on group size which is capped at 4 pupils max, (to one instructor). We like to run these sessions in small groups because group learning is faster, as we take it in turns to experience our foiling boards and share ideas with the group.

Your instructor will be in a support RIB nearby and you will be connected to the instructor by a Bluetooth headset. Impact vests, helmets and headsets supplied.

  • Max. 4 participants, 3-4 hour session*
  • Onshore introduction to foiling and the kit
  • Onshore tuition detailing the basic techniques for foiling
  • How the board and foil works and are controlled
  • Safety briefing, how to use the two-way radios
  • On the water group lesson. Using RIB boats for support
  • Onshore debrief

*Courses are 3 to 4 hours depending on participant numbers.

RYA Sustained Flight Course

  • Cost: £199 (With £50 discount*)
  • RYA Foiling ‘Sustained Flights’ certificate
  • Experience Required: to ‘First Flights’ standard
  • Runtime: 12 hours (2 days) 
  • Group size: 1-4 pupils*
  • Where? Surf Hotel, Vassiliki & Akti Beach, Kos
  • Book: In resort

Course Content

This course is for windsurfers who’ve already completed their First Flight course. If you have done so with us, you’ll get a £50 discount. This course builds on techniques and theory required to maintain and sustain foiling effectively. An absolute MUST to any aspiring foiler. Both courses can easily be achieved in a week with us, for a good intermediate level windsurfer.
