About the centres
Force 7 The team provides the perfect atmosphere in which to learn or improve your windsurfing at Golden Beach. We have some ideal windsurfing courses which offer enough windsurfing to let loose and go crazy and still have time to enjoy some of the other activities on offer or simply chill out.
Paros Surf Club Established in 1984 and opened its base on New Golden Beach in 1989. We offer windsurfing boards and sails for rent, but also qualified lessons from the youngest to the oldest, from beginner to advance. Due to the wide range of the first class material (every year brand new) from Tabou boards and Gaastra sails, Paros Surf Club became a Pro-Center. Also, we have special windsurfing boards and rigs for children up to 40kg weight. The team of Paros Surf Club is multilingual: We speak Greek, English, French and German.
