Windwise In Alacati
Alacati (pronounced 'Ala chata') is a unique Windwise destination on the South Western coast of Turkey. It's famous for stone houses, vineyards, windmills and now windsurfing! Windwise have been going there for over 15 years every June, so that really say's it all. If you're looking for a great value destination, which is ideal learning and has a real holiday feel on and off the water, Alacati is the place to go!
Beginner-Improvers- Intermediate Progression
Windsurfing in Alacati is renowned for crystal clear, shallow flat water, northerly Meltemi winds and easy windsurfing. It's one of our most popular Windwise destinations for beginner-improver-intermediate windsurfers. Plus non-windsurfing partners really enjoy the warm, sheltered viewing area and the whole ambience on the beach and the stunning town of Alacati. We use the excellent Ileri Hotel and this year we'll be using the ASPC centre for our windsurfing kit. As ever we run our full 'Windwise Skills Training System' and have our Windwise coach to focus on the newcomers and less experienced improvers, but everyone is part of the whole Windwise experience coaching, socials and adventures. So whether you're new to windsurfing, did it a few years ago or want a tune up to master all those essential short board skills - join Windwise in Alacati.

Who's It For?
Alacati is a fabulously easy Freeride paradise for beginners, improvers & intermediates. Our sessions in June are designed to give improvers-intermediates all the support and training they need to sort out the essential windsurfing skills. So if you're looking to move down onto smaller boards, improve your stance, harnessing, footstraps, blasting control and make faster tacks, non-planing and planing gybes or just get more comfortable on a board, these weeks are perfect for you. In Alacati Simon Bornhoft takes a WINDWISE coach with him to assist with some of the lower level windsurfers, so you'll get plenty of support during the difficult stages of the sport.
Course & Holiday Content
In Alacati we can cater for both improver-intermediates and advanced intermediates seeking to develop, stance, early planing, straps, harness, tacks, beach starts, waterstarts, gybes and all the skills to move your windsurfing on to the next level. On both weeks we run through our Skills Training System. In the mornings we usually do skills & drills and then planing skills in the afternoons. Plus we have freesia sessions, bay crossings and our infamous 'Upwind Downwinder' to the top of the bay and cafe!
We use our Windwise Core Principles & Skills to develop all aspects of your windsurfing. So you'll learn all about the importance of 'Vision' 'Opposition' Your '7' & 'Warrior" stance range, which link into executive uphauling, early planing, better blasting, fast tacks, gybing and a whole host of other skills and moves. We break it all down, simplify, de-mystify and can guarantee greatly enhancing your improvement, confidence, understanding and enjoyment on the water. Trust and practice the 'SYSTEM' and you cannot fail.
Other Holiday Highlights
Alongside our dedicated coaching, we like to create a truly great holiday experience. So we offer optional group trips to local restaurants, cool, secret bars and some hidden places for mountain sunset dinners. We regularly visit the beautiful Alacati town which is a bustling, quaint turkish town with loads of small boutique shops and we know the very best local places to eat. You can take the trip at whatever pace suits you and there is always something to do! It's also one of the better venues to take non-windsurfing partners.
Kit & Conditions
Flat, shallow, crystal clear blue water, Alacati is an easy and very safe place to windsurf. The launch area has no shore break what so ever and you're immediately into a huge shallow windsurfing area, which allows you the luxury of being able to stand 200 metres out from the shore. So it's perfect for practicing all those Windwise skills is very easy.
We don't like wind stats, because it's so easy for centres to be romantic with the truth. But we've been going in June for over 15 years, so that kind of say's it all. The predominant Meltemi wind blows port tack (left to right across the beach). It's usually lighter in the morning and builds in the afternoon. Our experiences of the place have been pretty good for wind. A week at that time of year, you should expect to get a variety of planing conditions, which are perfect for training, blasting and learning to gybe and develop your windsurfing.

Travel & Ileri Hotel
There are other options, but I'd strongly recommend the Ileri Hotel. It's a very friendly, welcoming, clean, family run hotel that is situated in Ilica (pronounced 'ill e cha'). It's owned by 'Murat' who used to run the beach café next to Club Mistral. Murat's family and his very loyal staff are superbly welcoming to WINDWISE clients. The Ileri has a hot Turkish Bath and friendly bar and reception staff, who have worked there for many years. The advantage of being in the Ileri Hotel, is that we are right near some great restaurants and close to Alacati town, so it makes for a much more social atmosphere in the evenings. It's better value and is a superb base for heading into Alacati town at night. We have our own 10-15 minute transfer to the beach each morning, which is an experience in itself!
