Freeride blasting for improver to advanced intermediates.

Prasonisi Windsurfing Holiday 17th-24th July 2016


Prasonisi is a small 'windsurf town' on the southern tip of the Island of Rhodes which is famous for being breezy and popular for windsurfing mid summer! Off the water we take you to beautiful hidden Greek villages and taverna's, plus roof top dining in stunning Lindos!


It 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.

 If you want easy windsurfing, excellent food and a great summer adventure in the Med, then join WINDWISE in Prasonisi.

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

Sails 4.7-7.5m

Flat water & optional bump & jump waves.

Check out the photos and video to get a better idea!

Travel & Hotel 

We'll be staying inHotel Praosnisi Club, which is a simple, clean small hotel in the local Greek village if Katavia. We'll have a 5 min mini bus trip to and from the beach and have more options for evening social etc. We get a real taste of the local culture and sample some truly great food and night time adventures. Eating out is super cheap and works really well to create the great Med holiday feel! Can't wait!!!!    

What to take

Shortie wetsuit or if you feel the cold take a long leg summer suit.

Hat, sunblock, booties not necessary.

Round pin travel plug / mosquito repellant.

Local currency: Euros & cards



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!***
