Vassiliki the place where Windsurfing Dreams Come True.
All our Windsurfing Instructor courses take place in the best water sports location in Europe – Vasiliki in Greece. Vass, as it is known, is a small fishing village on the island of Lefkada which has kept its character and hosts hundreds of windsurfers each summer. Flying Fish training is based at Club Vass benefiting from over 200 brand new boards and top level teaching facilities. What makes Vass so special is the wind. Each morning you wake up to light onshore winds, which are ideal for beginner windsurfers. The sea breeze kicks in after lunch producing powerful cross shore conditions.
Life off the water is just as exciting as life on. When the sun goes down Vasiliki then comes alive! The Club Vass BBQs and night entertainment shows are legendary. The whole of Vasiliki is in holiday mode during the summer months, with so many bars and tavernas to choose from you will have a fantastic dining and nights out with like-minded people.
