I have learned to windsurf here a few years ago and keep coming for additional courses. If you stay in the nearby Sheraton, you have a perfect combo of lounging and sporty hollidays. The teachers are fantastic, particularly Emmanuel.

For sure you need wind to windsurf; as if my gf asked for a beginner curs, they offered least windy hours of day (10-13). My plan was to surf meanwhile but... More

Lovely place and the staff were nice, informative and helpful. But the price for hiring our a 2 jet skis was just quite unbelievable. 80 euro for two jet skis for a 15 minute ride.

Visiting Rhodes gives you an excellent opportunity to take a windsurfing course of 6 hours or so. Ixia has almost got guarantees windsurfing weather and Surfers Paradise had great instructors and equipment. Ask for Andonis to schedule your course and Neil for instructor. My recommendation is you do first 30-45 mins of simulator, couple of hours of practice, another 30-45... More

The reason we have chosen Sheraton resort is the possibility to do water sports - and this club is just what we needed! The right club at the right place!

This is the absolute best place to hire windsurfing gear. The staff has exceptionally good knowledge about everything that has to do with windsurfing and gear. From all the various places I've rented gear, they have the best range. They are also changing the very quick if you want to swap board or rig. Their teaching staff is also very... More
