Program

In this camp, you will learn the basic skills and abilities needed to harness the power of the wind on a windsurf, as well as self-rescue techniques that can be extremely useful in case of an emergency.

The first introduction to windsurfing is always an exciting time. You do not need any prior experience to start sailing the board through the wind.

In the first couple of hours, you will learn the practical and theoretical aspects of the sport the formation of the win, the points of sail, safe sailing, and the interaction between the wind and the rig.

The instructor will provide you with a brief introduction to the windsurfing kit that you will be using, the rigging process and fine-tuning techniques.

Then, it is time to get started with a few practical demonstrations: the secure position, the static turn, and the sailing position.

After making sure you have understood and successfully repeated the above exercises, you will learn to steer the board and tack.

Last but not least, and still on solid ground, you will learn various methods of self-rescue, like the butterfly method, flagging, and the full de-rig self-rescue mode.

During the first session in the water, the student will start to sail across the wind within the limits of a restricted and safe sailing area.

Progressively, you will be introduced to upwind sailing, the no-go zone, and fast tacking. In a matter of hours, you will be incorporating all the essential windsurfing techniques, and will be ready for the concepts of downwind sailing and jibing.

Training will be the priority! You will have two hours of course everyday so the team will always schedule according to the best weather conditions. The team will also try to make the courses early in the morning so you will have the rest of the day free.

In case of zero wind or too much wind, you will have other activities at the center to play. Hours of training that are lost because of bad forecast will be done the following day.

Instructors

Nektarios Makris

Location

Makris Beach Hotel is located in the center of Kamari beach, 10 minutes walking distance away from your training area (Nemely Center).

Without the hustle and bustle of the main town of Santorini, Kamari lacks nothing in convenience and in fact offers a plethora of choices in restaurants, cafés and shops. Its great location lets you enjoy the setting, without having to walk up and down endless blocks of stairs.

Nemely Center

The windsurf camp itself will take place in Nemely Center at Avis beach. It is named after the Avis Tomato Factory that used to produce the typical product of Santorini. The presence of the volcano is evident on the beach that is covered in small volcanic pebbles and black sand, like the majority of the beaches in Santorini. Its waters are deep and clear.

This quiet, not crowded beach is partly organised with few sun loungers and straw umbrellas and in close distance you can find some restaurants, snack bars and a mini market. There are many trees following the length of the beach that create a nice and peaceful atmosphere.
