Why have Watersports Nomad combined SUP Instructor training with RYA Windsurf Instructor Training?
Watersports Nomad is now an official BSUPA recognised school (the only one in Greece!) and with SUP still the fastest growing watersport, there is a high demand for SUP instructors. The mornings in Greece are stunning with glassy flat water. Making dream SUP conditions and the best way to enjoy the ocean at that time of day.
Many of the holiday companies are asking prospective staff to be qualified in two sports so Windsurfing and SUP work well together. SUP when there is no wind and windsurf when the breeze kicks in!
