The Selling Point

All Flying Fish Windsurfing training courses are based at Club Vass in Vasiliki, Greece – With such fantastic conditions and brand new equipment, you will improve beyond the level required to become a Start Windsurf Instructor, very soon you will be able to become an Intermediate Instructor.
