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 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 2 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.

  • Onshore introduction to foiling and the kit
  • Onshore tuition detailing the basic techniques required for foiling
  • How the board and foil works and are controlled
  • Safety briefing
  • On water group lesson, (max. 4 participants), up to 4 hours depending on participant numbers.
  • Onshore debrief 

*Booking in resort is possible but availability can be limited.

RYA Sustained Flight Course

  • Cost: £295 (£50 discount*)
  • Cost: £445 (for private instruction)
  • RYA Foiling Sustained Flights certificate
  • Experience Required: Intermediate Planing
  • Runtime: 16 hours (2 days) 
  • Group size: 1-4 pupils*
  • Where? Surf Hotel & Xenia Club Vassiliki
  • Book: Before you travel or in resort*

Course Content

This course is for windsurfers who’ve already completed their First Flight taster. 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.

About the Sustained Flight Course

The coaching for Sustained Flight is spread over two or three days (total 16 hours) and will take the student much further than the First Flight course. We like to run these sessions in small groups of up to four pupils (to one instructor) where we can because group learning is the fastest way to learn. Take it in turns to experience our foiling Aero and share ideas and tips with each other. 

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.

After successful completion of the course, your RYA instructor will issue you with an RYA Foiling Sustained Flights certificate. We do not offer Advanced Foiling (Performance Flights) at this time.

How to Book

Pre-booking in advance is advisable. We have limited space. Ask our sales team for availability when booking your holiday or select this Extra when booking your holiday online. Alternatively, you can book on arrival in resort, but availability cannot be guaranteed.
