This summer Ocean Elements is launching foiling for windsurfes at its Porto Heli and Vassiliki resorts, as well as the launch of its new active glamping resort at Club Mayotte in the south west of France.
Learn to foil!
If you thought you’d never master the art of foiling then think again! New for summer 2018 at our Porto Heli and Vassiliki resorts, we are more than delighted to be one of the first tour operators to offer foiling courses for beginner and intermediate sailors. We have a sneaky feeling this is goin to be popular, so make sure you book before you even pack your case!
Windsurf foiling at Surf Hotel and Xenia Apartments in Vassiliki
Hold tight this summer as windsurfing literally takes off! We are one of the first tour operators to offer windsurf foiling and tuition in Greece. Our team of dedicated RYA trained instructors are ready and waiting to teach you the art of foiling. Aimed at the more experienced windsurfer, foiling gives you a real sense of weightlessness and speed as well as the ultimate buzz. You’ll be effortlessly flying across the ocean at close to 30 knots – what’s not to love?
We have two types of dedicated foil boards for you to try out – the Foil 122 and the Foil 147. The Foil 122 is thin for maximum control with 100% razor sharp rail edges for early planing and clean water release, even when touching down. Designed purely as a foil board it allows easier control of the board, better performance and makes it more forgiving to foil compared to using a classic freeride windsurf board.
The Foil 147 is a balanced, stable foil board with a wider outline and wider tail for more power and stability. The 95cm wide outline coupled with a wide tail gives a super efficient shape that planes early and gives a high degree of control and leverage over the foil. The 241cm long board makes it more forgiving when dropping off the foil helping the board to take off.
Our onsite team of trained RYA foiling windsurf instructors offer two levels of tuition – our ‘First Flight’ course – a two hour introductory foiling course – and our ‘Sustained Flight’ course – a two half day foiling course. What are you waiting for?
New Beach Club Destination: Club Mayotte
Alongside our Greek Beach Club resorts we are delighted to announce the opening of Club Mayotte Biscarosse in south west France – a five star lakeside campsite with private beach, sailing, water sports centre, pools, mountain biking and much more.
We’ve been offering active holidays in the mountains and by the sea for over 20 years and now we are bringing our expertise to the lakes. You can try out stand-up paddle boarding or kayaking (no need to hire a board or kayak as these are included with your booking!), water skiing, wake-boarding, kite-surfing, dinghy and catamaran sailing. And don’t forget to check out the surf at beautiful Biscarrosse Plage, just a couple of kilometres away.
When you’re not splashing about on the water, grab your mountain bike (four bikes are included with your booking – see, we think of everything!) and explore the beautiful scenery and surrounding area. You can even book in for a guided bike tour.
The kids are going to love this family-friendly Club; it boasts an impressive water park, four outdoor pools, and an adventure park. Our kids club is open daily, giving grown-ups some well deserved time off. We even have an on-site wellness centre complete with a sauna, jacuzzi, gym, yoga and aqua fitness classes. Or you could just enjoy a bit of beach-time, reading a book on a lounger.
We open for business in May 2018, just in time for half term. The weather by then is already deliciously warm as is the water temperature as Lake Sanguinet is one of the largest warm water lakes in France. You can book now for 7 or 14 nights in one of our mobile homes.
