El Tur, Egypt

El Tur is a popular windsurfing destination on the Red sea that offers various conditions for all levels of windsurfers – from the safe flat water bay, suitable for all levels of windsurfing courses to modest waves outside the bay. Depending on the time of the year we windsurf in board shorts (summer and early autumn), neoprene suits are used in the winter months. The happening is focused on the beach, around the only hotel and windsurf centre. The city of El Tur is pure and authentic in many ways, creating a field to explore for all those windsurfing lovers, that simply enjoy the sport and don't miss any nightlife.

In El Tur we will organize BEGINNERINTERMEDIATEADVANCED and FREESTYLE windsurf courses. 

Due to some logistical problems, the organization of camps in El Tur is impossible until further notice. We are working on possibly returning to one of our favorite destinations again soon.

Any other questions? The email will be the right choice.

Bungalows are equipped with a ceiling fan and small fridge. Bungalows have joint toilets and showers and were built as a budget option of your stay. Breakfast and dinner are self-service and organized in the dining room which is in the main building, just next to the reception. Internet connection (WiFi) is available in the hotel's lobby.

Viana do Castelo, Portugal

The Cabedelo beach in the region of Viana do Castelo in Portugal has a worldwide reputation as one of the best windsurfing spots in the world. The town is located on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean and is known for the constant winds that blow throughout the year. The main season lasts from the end of April to the end of September, when the typical, reliable and constant wind "Nortada" blows, which has a thermodynamic effect. Due to its characteristics, the Cabedelo beach is an excellent starting point for all levels of windsurfing skills. Besides the ocean, there is a spot on the nearby Lima river, which is an excellent point for beginners or those who want to practice their skills in a more protected environment. In case of weaker winds, the spot offers countless other options that will keep you on the water in any case: from surfing on waves, SUPing, experiences in the wake park, experiences in wing foiling - we will make sure that these holidays are a true "waterman" experience.

Our first camp in Viana do Castelo was organized in end of April. Looks like it is gonna get on the list of our regular spots.

If you have any questions for us regarding our windsurfing vacations in Portugal, we are happy to help at info@quiksilverwindsurfschool.com.

Windsurf center:

Sport center FeelViana is the largest and most complete water sports center in the country. It is located directly on Cabedelo beach in Viana do Castelo. You can choose from a wide range of JP Australia boards and NeilPryde sails, which are almost completely replaced every season. The selection is wide, from NeilPryde Atlas HD, Combat HD, Speedster, Ryde, Dragonfly & Racing Evo sails, to JP Ultimate Pro, Ultimate Wave, Freestyle Wave, Magic Ride Pro, Super Ride Pro, Slalom, Freefoil, Hydrofoil boards, all available in almost all sizes.

Accommodation:

In Portugal, we will take care of both - those who want a bit more pampering and those who seek the true surfing momentum. For the former, we will provide various accommodation options at the FeelViana Sport Hotel. FeelViana is a sustainable four-star hotel, entirely made of wood and perfectly integrated into the surrounding landscape, nestled in a pine forest on Cabedelo beach. The hotel has 55 rooms, decorated in a simple and functional style, designed to make you feel at home and truly enjoy your stay. All available room types feature a lovely balcony that allows you to relax in harmony with nature. With an indoor and outdoor pool, large glass windows, and an exceptional seaside location (200 meters away), this sports hotel is the perfect haven, whether for family vacations or for a proper dose of comfort after a day on the water and wind.

The second accommodation option is the Itaca surf house, located in close proximity to the FeelViana hotel and windsurf center, forests, and the sea, on Cabedelo beach. Itaca offers 5 apartments for 3-5 people, each fully equipped (kitchen, living room, bathroom), and just a few steps away from excellent windsurfing or surfing conditions.

Food:

Accommodation at the FeelViana Sport Hotel includes breakfast, which can also be added at an additional cost for those staying in other accommodations (price: 20 euros). Small bakeries known for Portuguese delicacies are located near all accommodations, and Itaca apartments have a fully equipped kitchen. There is a grocery store in the immediate vicinity, so you can take care of your own meals. For larger purchases, you can go to the nearby larger city (Viana do Castelo), which is regularly serviced by a small ferry across the river.

What's going on?:

As with every Quiksilver windsurfing school camp, the days will consist of windsurfing lessons, morning warm-ups or afternoon stretches, and video analysis. What sets the experience in Portugal apart from other camps is the true "waterman/waterwoman" experience - if the wind is not in our favor, we have all water toys available - from surfboards (for catching the first waves), SUP (an unforgettable trip up the river), wing-foil, etc. And if anyone truly doesn't feel like being on the water, we can organize a bike tour to nearby points of interest.

Rhodes, Greece

Prasonisi Beach is a sandy peninsula, connected to the island of Rhodes. Due to the excellent wind conditions and beautiful nature, it attracts windsurfers and kiters from all over the world. The southern part of the beach has flat water and is great for beginner, intermediate, advanced, and freestyle courses. When the wind is stronger, there are medium-sized waves beautifully breaking on the safe sandy beach on the northern part of the beach, which is only 500 meters away. During summer blows the well-known wind of the Aegean Sea - Meltemi. Due to the temperatures in August, you only need a swimsuit, lycra, or a shorty for the freezing ones. Due to the great conditions for improvement, Rhodes is an ideal choice for those who miss El Tur on our calendar and want to explore and windsurf new spots with us. Our first camp in Rhodes will be organized from August 16th to 23rd, 2023. BEGINNER, INTERMEDIATE, ADVANCED, and FREESTYLE courses as well as courses for CHILDREN and YOUNG GUNS.

Everyone can find something for themselves in the wide range of equipment: wave, freestyle, freeride, freerace, as well as foil, young guns and beginner equipment.

Accommodation:

If you are lucky, you can book one of the apartments with a sea view on Prasonisi, otherwise most daily guests drive to the village of Kattavia, 8 kilometers away, where there is a greater choice of accommodation. The larger resort is Gennadi, which is 25 kilometers from Prasonisi.
ATTENTION: this package excludes the accommodation. You need to arrange it at your own.

Food:

There are two large restaurants in Prasonisi with Greek specialties and fish food. There is also a fast food kiosk and two shops that offer quick snacks, sandwiches, pizzas, salads... There are also two small shops and three taverns in Kattavia. The most famous is Eftihia with an excellent rating on Tripadviser.

What's going on?:

We will start the morning in Rhodes with morning exercise, followed by windsurfing courses. Evenings are devoted to video analysis. Possible and very rare windless days can be brightened up with SUP trips or discovering the beauty of the island together. Fun? An evening stroll through the taverns reveals a variety of events. When Prasonisi works as it should, there is no shortage of wind. It allows windsurfing from morning to evening.

Porto Pollo, Sardinia, Italy

Porto Pollo is located in the north of Sardinia, between Palau and Santa Teresa Gallura.

The windsurf center Procenter Michiel Bouwmeester is fully equipped with brand new RRD boards and Neil Pryde sails. Kids equipment (sails from 0,8 m2 on), SUP boards and kayaks available as well. Wetsuit and harness rental is included in the price.

Accommodation:

Porto Pollo offers various accommodation types - from hotels to apartments, the area is camper friendly as well. We’ll organize your accommodation in a lovely apartment village Windsurf village, which is situated only 200 m from the windsurfing center and offers apartments that can take 2 – 6 persons.

Praia do Maceiò, Brazil

Praia do Maceio is a small Brazilian fisherman village a bit more north of famous Jericoacoara. Long beach, amazing sunsets, constant wind, warm water and the combination of flatwater and modest waves convince more and more windsurfers to spend their winter here. Maceio is relatively unknown windsurf spot, that will excite all windsurfers that might be missing some waves in Icaraizinho, or find Jericoacoara to busy and crowded. We have first travelled to Maceio two years ago, curious to see the perfect but isolated windsurf spot. Our last experiences in Maceio were amazing, and we are looking forward to making it again as soon as possible. 

Meanwhile, if you wanna know more, don't hesitate to write on info@quiksilverwindsurfschool.com.

Windsurf center:

To make your windsurfing experience the best possible, we decided to book the equipment with a renowned Italian windsurf centre Sa Barra. Smaller, family-run windsurf centre is located in the middle of the long sandy beach, surrounded by a few smaller restaurants and bars that offer the perfect environment for your windsurfing break. RRD boards and sails available.

 

Accommodation:

Praia do Maceio offers a perfect getaway from the noisy every day and brings you in the core of pure nature, silence and life, that consists of the combination of windsurfing, good food and rest. We have arranged your accommodation in a beautiful pousada Vila Mares, located just next to the beach with a perfect view of the ocean, a small but lovely garden, nice rooms and great breakfast. If the accommodation in Villa Mares is not available, we will organize you a perfect stay in one of the pousadas nearby. 

Food:

Maceio is a small fisherman village, still untouched by mass tourism. If you have this in mind, you will learn to appreciate the small, but a pristine offer of a few small local restaurants, mostly offering fresh seafood and local Brazilian cuisine. There are two small shops in the village as well, and the streets of Maceio are visited with a truck of fresh fruit and vegetables several times per week. 

What's going on?:

We start our mornings in Brazil with a morning exercise on the perfectly cut grass next to the pool of our pousada. We continue with windsurfing, windsurfing and windsurfing till the sunset. We finish the day with video analysis, happy and tired. :)

Perna, Pelješac, Croatia

Pelješac is one of the well-known Croatian windsurf destinations. The channel between Pelješac and Korčula island enhances the afternoon wind Maestral, that attracts hundreds of windsurfers and kitesurfers. Mornings with the light breeze are suitable for beginners in windsurfing or those that love morning SUP trips. Stronger winds in the afternoon create the perfect condition for better windsurfers, however, bigger sails or foil is needed for maximum happiness. Once you get to Pelješac, there are endless possibilities for accommodation - from camping to mobile homes directly on the beach, or apartments and hotels nearby. 

In Pelješac we organise BEGINNER and INTERMEDIATE windsurf courses and windsurf courses for KIDS
