WINDSURFING
With modern equipment, nice weather conditions and professional instructions windsurfing is a simple and easy skill! People of all ages and abilities can participate with confidence. It's one of the most exciting water activities and you will feel the magical relationship with the wind as you sail across the water. Our partnered windsurfing school founded by Marin Vayu and friends has taught beginners since 2002. To learn windsurfing with us is a yogic experience. First you will learn how to do it on land ( on simulator ) and then you will spend approx one hour in the water. In case you don’t like it you can quit anytime because we will be in the bay, close to the beach. When you finish windsurfing you can take a SUP board and have fun.

KAYAKING
Our kayaks are the best "sit on top" kayaks for one or two persons, very stable, and easy to ride. We have several option where we go kayaking, but all of them are amazing places with small islands where we stop to swim, relax or snorkel. We paddle maximum 1 hour in one direction. If there is no wind kayaking is super easy and a great way to connect with nature. If it is windy with waves then kayaking can be fun and full of adventure. If there is too much wind ( which is rare ) then we go kayaking another day :)

SUP - Stand up paddling
SUP boards are a great new way to connect with the water. If you can’t stand up on a SUP board you can always sit on it and use it as a kayak, they are also very stable. We have big and stable boards so that you can go even in 2 persons. With SUP boards we will have fun trying some yoga posture, or simply enjoy floating on the water. We will also bring snorkeling gear so that you can explore the underwater world of Croatia.

BIKING
All our bikes are mountain bikes and we drive mostly on white paths. We will choose the trails for biking according to the weather condition. The longest trail that we do is 2 hours of easy riding ( 20 km ), but the path is almost all downhill.

..... Also I personally wanted to thank Marin for making me feel confident and comfortable during windsurfing and kayaking, as it was my first time to try these activities out and I do not swim well. It was a great experience.
