Learning to windsurf with Flying Fish

Hooking into the harness for the first time

If you like windsurfing and prefer working outdoors, consider joining Flying Fish and training to become a professional Windsurfing Instructor. Becoming a Windsurfing instructor gives you so so much more than just job prospects: you will learn a host of new skills that are really useful in life as well as in your role as an Instructor.

If you join a Flying Fish course you’ll benefit from fast-track training, using the latest high-performance equipment.

Location, location, location?

What makes Flying Fish so unique is where we train: all our Windsurfing Instructor courses take place in probably the best water sports locations 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 despite being host to hundreds of windsurfers each summer. 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 excellent cross shore conditions.

Night life

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 and with so many bars and tavernas to choose from you will have a fantastic night out with like-minded people.
