Trainee Testimonials

October 26, 2016

Here's what some of our  windsurf instructor, sailing instructor and multi activity course students had to say about their time with us!


“I could not recommend this course enough! 100% the best experience of my life! This course will change your whole perspective on life and allow you to realise that you are able to achieve anything when you put your mind to it! The support and encouragement from the staff is fantastic and I cannot thank them enough for all they have done.” Ben, 21, Multi Activity Course 2016


“I can’t thank Horizon Watersports enough for allowing me to partake in a funded 5 week dinghy sailing instructor course. The hard work they put into raising money for courses like mine is amazing. The staff at Horizon are a fantastic group of people, who were really encouraging and knowledgeable. The course itself was very professional and it has a great mix of practical and theory sessions.” Ellie, 21, Dinghy Instructor Course 2016



“With a reference from Horizon Watersports, I went straight from my instructor course to work at a big resort about two hours away from Nidri. I worked there as a windsurf instructor, putting my qualifications to use straight away. I felt that the course had set me up really well for the job, as it covered everything from radio use to coaching techniques.” Sean, 20, Windsurf Instructor Course 2016



“I think the Horizon team was my favourite part of the course - nothing could compare to the positive and brilliant attitude from all the instructors on the water and the beach. I learned so much! From knot tying, to sailing to a fully competent level - having never sailed before just 5 weeks earlier! I definitely developed a new confidence of spending time away from home while I was in Greece. The 5 weeks flew by with little contemplation for what was happening back home! You're kept so busy missing home is definitely not something to worry about on the course.” Rhys, 24, Dinghy Instructor Course 2016



“I’ve really loved the last few weeks of my course with Horizon. I’ve made some great friends and overcome lots of challenges… It’s been a new experience living and working in Greece, the place is so beautiful and I couldn’t have asked for a nicer place to learn to sail. I’m really looking forward to working now as a Dinghy Instructor whether that is in Greece or the UK, exciting times lie ahead!” Emma, 20, Dinghy Instructor Course 2015



“The centre is located in a beautiful part of Greece and has fantastic views of the mountains of Greece mainland as well as islands scattered around. The quality of the training was phenomenal, guided by highly qualified and experienced instructors. The course was very well structured, enabling us to gain maximum experience in both the practical and theory side to being a dinghy sailing instructor. I feel well prepared to start a career in dinghy instructing after this course which is amazing after just 5 weeks, considering I’ve never sailed before! It’s a lovely centre on the beach with hammocks and bean bags and plenty of shade. Thank you Horizon!” Sally, 24, Dinghy Instructor Course 2016



“The last five weeks have been incredibly rewarding. Through the course I’ve developed a passion for sailing and windsurfing. This experience has put me a career path I had never imagined and it’s exciting to have a job I can be passionate about. I’m looking forward to working as an instructor for a long time to come.” Ewan, 22, Dinghy Instructor Course 2015



“Had the most amazing time with Horizon this year training to be a windsurfing instructor. It was hard work but definitely worth it. The instructors are so lovely, know what they’re talking about and have so much patience with anyone and everyone. The surrounding area is beautiful and Horizon offer such a wide variety of watersports and tuition. I would definitely recommend going there to anyone. In just 5 weeks I was trained to be an instructor with no previous experience and I am now qualified to teach start windsurfing, have my powerboat level 2 and my first aid.” Abby, 19, Windsurf Instructor Course 2016
