Windsurfing Holidays

Whether you’re a total beginner or gung-ho expert, we have your perfect windsurf holiday in any one of our idyllic Beach clubs. Our personal ‘small-centre approach’ promises the very best on-the-water experience for all abilities with windsurf tuition included in the cost of your holiday.

Each of our Beach clubs has been hand-picked to offer the most consistent and reliable condition; expect a gentle morning breeze every day before the thermal wind builds to offer exciting windsurfing after lunch.

Inclusive tuition

Tuition is included free of charge for five days a week in all our centres and our friendly team of RYA (Royal Yachting Association) water sports instructors make each session fun and welcoming. You can even go home with a new internationally recognised RYA qualification for no extra charge too!

Tuition in Vassiliki is inclusive for beginner to advanced and delivered as a full 5 day RYA course which you can dip in and out of. In Porto Heli and Horto-Pelion, tuition is inclusive for beginner to intermediate (non-planing) and also delivered as a 5-day course. You can take advanced tuition as a private session, (paid for locally).

Sessions are grouped by ability and our instructor/guest ratio is normally 1 to 6. Group lessons are always popular and very sociable as guests get to meet each other and share good times afloat! There’s no need to book before you travel, it’s all done at the Beach Club.

Beginners Windsurfing

The warm waters and predictable thermal winds coupled with our free and inclusive tuition make all our centres the ideal venue for learning to windsurf.

Beginner Windsurfing

If you’ve never Windsurfed’ before you will be amazed at how easy it is to grasp the basics. You will start from the beach in warm, shallow waters and light winds. You can progress at your own pace in our friendly, sociable group lessons each day to gain an RYA qualification during your week, thus returning home a fully-fledged and qualified ‘Windsurfer’.

We include level 1 lessons for free in all our centres (5 days 3hrs a day) so you can even go home with an internationally recognised RYA qualification.

The learning curve is made especially easy with warm waters and light morning winds in all our centres; the perfect learning environment for all ages. 

-Available in all Beach clubs

-Free tuition in all Beach clubs

Intermediate Non Planing

Intermediates will find perfect windsurfing conditions at all our centres as the thermal wind offers reliable conditions and fun sailing. Our Intermediate non-planing windsurf sessions are for those ready to move up and will focus on fine tuning and perfecting tacks, gybes and introduce the harness and new techniques like beach starts.

We include level 2 Intermediate lessons for free in all our centres (5 days 3hrs a day) so you can even go home with an internationally recognised RYA qualification.

-Available in all Beach clubs 

-Free tuition in all Beach clubs

Intermediate Planing

You’ve experienced the first part of windsurfing and can already sail on all points in light winds. This is when windsurfing really gets exciting because now it’s time to build on skills and get the board planing! You’ll be going out in stronger winds, working on faster tacks, using the harness and getting into the foot straps. There’ll also be sessions on beach starting and carve gybes; getting you ready for blasting control!

You’ll need a bit of breeze to plane so although all our centres offer planing conditions, it’s best to visit Vassiliki and Horto-Pelion for the best of it.

We include level 3 Intermediate planing lessons for free in Vassiliki (5 days 3hrs a day). This course is not included for free in Porto Heli and Horto-Pelion but you can pay for private tuition to cover this level.

-Available in all Beach clubs 

-Free tuition in Vassiliki only

Advanced Windsurfing

Advanced Windsurfing is taught as a series of clinics over our free 5 day RYA course (3hrs a day) in Vassiliki. In other centres, you can pay for private tuition to cover any of our clinic-modules which include advanced planing, waterstarts, carve gybes and carving.

Session topics are decided on the day taking into account weather conditions. Our instructors will also take your requests and even help you nail a particular trick if that’s what you want… they are there to push your windsurfing and ensure big grins all round!

Our expert and Pro coaches are on hand to offer advice and help, even outside of lessons. We use video coaching, speed boat coaching and on-shore training simulators plus the very latest boards and sails (in Vassiliki) for you to use.

You’ll need the very best conditions so it’s best to head to Vassiliki where the morning calm allows you to try that new trick or practice new moves, and the afternoon breeze reliably builds to a steady Force 3-6 or 7 most days. In Vassiliki, all levels of tuition up to advanced are included for free with all holidays and taken as a 5 day RYA course (3hrs a day).

-Available in all Beach clubs 

-Free tuition in Vassiliki only

Free Sailing

If you can already windsurf then there’s no need to join a lesson unless you want to! Simply choose a board and let the beach staff know and they’ll help you rig the kit and you’re off. The beach is open from 9.30 each day until the last guest comes off the water. We also include free use of our Performance boards and latest sails from Tushingham for 2017

Windsurfing for Children

Kids will love our free Kids Clubs (ages 4-13) and Youth Squad (ages 7-13).

If your kids want to learn to windsurf or improve their skills then they’ll love our Youth Squad. A Kids Club with dedicated coaching from our own RYA instructors where they will be windsurfing with other kids each day. We use specialised lightweight kit and our instructors will combine the perfect blend of fun and learning for the best windsurfing experience!

Youth Squaddies’ join our sociable daily Kids Clubs which include an array of organised activities led by our childcare staff. Squaddies’ will break away to do their lessons before re-joining Kids Cub for the rest of the day…or as much of the day as parents want!

Our RYA Youth Squad is a dedicated coaching club for dinghy sailing or windsurfing, (3hrs a day, 5 days a week). It runs in conjunction with our daytime Kids Club so parents can get a proper break if they choose! One week Youth Squad upgrade - £159, two weeks - £295.

Kids don't have to be in Youth Squad to go windsurfing; children under 13 can windsurf with a parent or guardian and children over 14 can join our free adult teaching sessions. Children under 13 can windsurf with a parent or guardian.

The Best Equipment!

You’ll find a great selection of windsurfing equipment at all centres which are selected to suit the local conditions for all abilities. All you need to bring are your board shorts and a rash vest, we’ll supply the rest!

Our Starboard boards range from super-stable beginner boards, easy going free-ride, to high-performance race, freestyle and wave boards.

Our Tushingham sails are carefully rigged and maintained to get the maximum performance on the water, with sizes from 3.5 to 8.5 on adult sails we have all wind strengths covered.
