Prasonisi Windsurfing Holiday 16-23rd July 2017
Stunning bay, gybing successes, fast tack mastery, sundowners, spectacular roof top dinning adventures, taverna eateries in Kattavia - it has to be Windwise in Prasonisi! We've just announced our dates for Prasonisi 2017 and despite Brexit effect on Euro we have kept price within £10 of 2016!
Prasonisi is a small 'windsurfing town' on the southern tip of the Island of Rhodes which is famous for being breezy and popular for windsurfing mid summer! Off you'll stay and eat in beautiful hidden Greek villages and taverna's, plus we'll take you to some unique roof top dining in stunning Lindos! Prasonisi Bay has flat blue water and a super flat gybe area to crank turns on after a fast blast across the bay on the strong northerly Meltemi wind. There's also a bump & jump style wave beach, fabulous Greek food, some secret WINDWISE adventures and a very relaxed laid back feel about the place. Check the video and photos out below for more information.
Easy windsurfing, excellent food, roof top dining a fabulous Windwise adventure.

Who's it for?
Prasonisi offers easy Freeride sailing for all levels, but ideally suits those who are looking to get more comfortable blasting, cornering or just wanting a play ground to have a really great time on the water. Our WINDWISE Prasonisi windsurfing clinic is aimed at intermediate-advanced windsurfers looking to move their short board windsurfing onto another level. Whether that is moving onto even smaller boards, blasting faster in more control or really wanting to speed up those turns, 'Pras' is an exciting place to sail. As easy as Egypt, but with slight variation of conditions, it's great place to get inspired, try new moves and, with WINDWISE, give your windsurfing a lift.
Course & Holiday Content
During the week we'll cover, super early planing, sailing at higher speeds, stance range, quick short board tacks, gybe variations, duck gybes, 360's and other feasible freestyle. Plus we will have a whole bunch of fun expression sessions to move your sailing along. As ever using our core WINDWISE skills training to get the body to do what you mind is telling it! If we get the chance we'll do some speed runs too!
Other Holiday Highlights
After a full day of coaching, we will give you optional socials, adventures, safari's and check out some special places on this popular island. In previous years we've visited a Robinson Crusoe style beach bar, small Greek tavernas, plus a great Mojito bar with amazing star gazing!
Kit & Conditions
Flat water on the south side of the huge sandy spit and optional bump and jump waves on the north side. It's a big bay with cross offshore winds producing easy blasting and super flat water that flatters your gybes! As ever we don't like wind stats, because it's so easy for centres to be romantic with the truth. But we go in July-Aug because from experience and local knowledge/feedback it is one of the best times of year.
Boards between 80-130L
Flat water & optional bump & jump waves.

Eating out is super cheap and works really well to create the great Med holiday feel! Can't wait!!!!

WINDWISE will do their best to ensure your safety and enjoyment on the water. There will be times when you're being coached individually and in a group. There will also be times when you are freesailng by yourself. Windsurfing is, potentially, a dangerous sport and you must agree to sail in a responsible manner and in the designated areas outlined to you in resort.
In the event that Simon Bornhoft is not able to make the clinic due to illness or unforseen circumstances, your WINDWISE booking and holiday are still valid and the course/holiday and adventure will still go ahead and another Windwise coach will be provided for you.
***It is essential that you have thrid party windsurfing insurance!***
