    Thank you for a great course. Great presentation style with lots of opportunities to ask questions and talk about real life examples which all made for a really enjoyable and informative course.
    This has more than met my expectations.

    Quality education and a lot of fun. I completed my start windsurf course with Flying Fish and returned to complete my intermediate. Great teachers, kit and fellow students made for an awesome experience both times!

    Hands down one of the best things I’ve done! I took some time out from work, earlier this summer, to do the fast track windsurfing instructor course and had a fantastic time out in Vass for a month.
    Windsurfing everyday with great kit, great conditions and great people, it really doesn’t get much better. I would highly recommend it.

    Just finished a 2 week course doing my STCW and Stewardess training. I cannot thank flying fish enough with how amazing it was. The staff are all so friendly and knowledgeable. I have come away from these 2 weeks knowing so much more about the Yachting industry, along with many qualifications and feeling much more confident. I highly recommend Flying Fish to anyone wanting to get involved in Super yachts. Thank you!

    I recently attended my latest first aid update through flying fish. I have done many over the years and other similar types of events through my nursing career but I can honestly say this was the most fun, informative and memorable update I have attended. The course was delivered in such a way as to make the information interesting, easy to remember and most importantly easy to apply if required. I would definitely recommend doing your update with Adam at Flying Fish. Thanks guys!

    Great summer doing the start and intermediate windsurf instructor courses out in Vasiliki. The trainers were super nice and friendly, I would definitely recommend the course to anyone looking to improve their own windsurfing as well as becoming an instructor. Thank you Flying Fish!

    I spent 5 weeks with flying fish doing the dinghy instructor course + development in vass and it was amazing! The instructors are @ such an amazing standard and support you through your whole time there. I had such a fantastic time making great friends and learning so many new skills on and off the water.

    I had an incredible time spending 3 weeks on the taster course to try out sailing, windsurfing and scuba diving. The teaching was top quality with extremely friendly and talented instructors in each discipline. The set up was fantastic and the accommodation excellent. Vasiliki is a superb resort to learn and has a great sociable atmosphere. Would recommend the courses to any age group. Go and meet lovely people and make amazing memories!
