Rhodes Fanatic Tabou Windsurf Centre - Rhodes - Ialyssos, Greece & Mediterranean

Windsurfing Icon SUP/Surfing Icon

The Ialyssos Rhodes windsurfing centre is one of two centres located next to the Blue Horizon Hotel on Trianda Beach. The centre has the latest equipment from Fanatic, Tabou and North sails available to rent plus two additional centres - a High Tech centre directly on the beach with side shore wind with less than 30m away from the sea and a the third center, which accommodates beginners and intermediates very well, is 500m further up the bay.

  April - October.


The High Tech centre is located on the left side of the Blue Horizon Hotel and is less than 30m from the sea.  It is around 100m from a second Fanatic/Tabou Centre. The beginners windsurf centre is approximately 400m away with complimentary shuttle service available.

The Spot
The centre is located to the right side of the Blue Horizon Hotel and is just a few metres from the sea with a side shore, consistent winds between 15 and 25 knots during peak summer months. Approximately 400m away there is the beginners windsurf centre, which is an area sheltered from the wind providing excellent learning conditions. The area is in a smaller bay with flat water for the first 100m and less strong winds, making it great for beginners and those moving to the next stage.


At the centre there are fresh water showers with sun beds in a shady palm tree garden, a beautiful beach bar located next to the centre and a beach volley ball field. There are also 'Baywatch' style towers provided by the centre for safety. Full rental and instruction service with a wide choice of the latest equipment from Fanatic boards, Tabou boards and North sails. There is a rescue boat on standby if needed. The centre can provide covered storage for your own equipment but space is limited and there is an additional charge. (This is required to be booked in advance to guarantee availability.)
