Fanatic Boarders Centre
Surrounded by palm trees, the Fanatic Boarders Centre is located directly on the beach next to the Hotel Orquidea within the Bahia Feliz Resort, and is open every day for windsurf equipment rental and windsurfing tuition. The centre also has a rescue boat on standby. There is also limited space available (approx. 4-5 persons) for those with their own equipment to store it at the centre at an additional charge. The courses are operated by staff that are multilingual.
Board and Sail Rental:
The centre offers a range of Fanatic boards from radical wave through to freestyle and freemove.
Sails are from Duotone, and range from 3.0 to 7.3sqm, and all the sails are rigged on at least 75% carbon masts.
There is a range of 17 beginner dagger boards available including 3 kids boards for beginners and intermediates.
High Wind Excursions to Arinaga and Pozo:
The Fanatic Centre organizes higher wind excursions to the northern spots of the island such as Bahia de Formas at Arinaga for more advanced sailors, particularly during the summer when the wind is often not very strong and constant at Bahía Feliz (especially from the beginning of June until the end of August). The drive to Arinaga is about 20 minutes from Bahia del Feliz.
The flat water area in Arinaga provides the ideal training ground for learning the water start, jibes or freestyle manoeuvres, and lessons are also offered in wave sailing, depending on the conditions and abilities of the sailors. Excursions to Pozo can be arranged but only for the very experienced.
An experienced instructor from the centre will organize these windsurfing trips every day subject to demand. Those attending usually meet at 11.30 a.m. to pack all the necessary equipment on the trailer and then return around 6.00 p.m. (during winter around 5.30 p.m.). The boards used range between 75L to 115L in volume, and sails between 3.4 and 5.3 m².
Stand UP Paddle boarding:
The beach offers a perfect entrance into the water to explore the coastline around the island.
The centre stocks a wide range of boards ranging from Wave SUP, Allround SUP to inflatable Race- Touring SUPs. The inflatable SUP boards are recommended for beginners and children. They provide safe and easy handling. They’re also comfortable and convenient to bring to other beaches.
Guests who have pre-booked windsurf equipment can use the SUP boards on calm days as an alternative. Beginners courses are available for those who haven’t had any previous experience on a SUP board to learn the basic techniques and stance.
