Surfing and windsurfing in Crete is already a bit faster. Here your attention is just as important as your sense of balance. With the surfboard you let the waves carry you to the beach - at least ideally, because the instructor at your side will show you how to stay on the board in the first place. With windsurfing, on the other hand, you will have to learn how to hold the big sail correctly and thus steer it reliably. However, as soon as you achieve your first success in these demanding water sports, you will feel great!

Wind is not my thing

The waves do. So the course brought me this insight: Better not windsurfing. Surfing is okay.

Wind ist nicht mein Ding.

Die Wellen schon. Also der Kurs hat mir diese Erkenntnis gebracht: Windsurfen besser nicht. Wellenreiten ist okay.

Refreshing succeeded

I haven't stood on a board for 15 years. So I wanted to feel my way around carefully again. The course was ideal for that. Thanks to the patient teacher!

Auffrischung geglückt

15 Jahre habe ich nicht mehr auf einem Brett gestanden. Deshalb wollte ich mich wieder vorsichtig rantasten. Der Kurs war ideal dafür. Danke an den geduldigen Lehrer!
