Lessons

Kefalos Bay offers ideal conditions for all levels of learning – beginners through to advanced.

We don’t put pressure on you to learn here – we want you to have fun whilst learning in the meantime - at your own pace of course. After all, you are on holiday! Training is available 7 days per week. As much as possible we try to be flexible so ensuring the best conditions for the relevant level of course.

We follow the RYA method of teaching and all of our Instructors are RYA Qualified. Since 2010 we are also an official VDWS training centre which allows us to hand out an international windsurfing license. Various courses and sessions are available at the center. If you are joining one of our courses then we will ensure that you are put into the relevant group depending upon ability and goals. All of our training includes theory and on the water sessions. We always aim to spend as much time on the water as possible, covering theory at the same time, with de-briefing at the end to check understanding. Group courses will have a maximum of 6 people – we have found that any more than this limits the tuition the individuals receive.
