The instructor is really good(!!) and it's a great place to start for beginners! I tried windsurfing at BOTA surfsenter in 2012 and it was soooo fun! Thus I did windsurfing as well in 2013 during my visit in Vrboska, and I will hopefully surf this year too. It's a great place, so to all of u at Hvar island; GET your asss to BOTA surfsenter and have FUN! Wether or not u're a beginner or a pro, IT'S A MUST! :D

We are a group of 8 Canadians that thought it would be fun to cycle from our yacht in Vrboska to Hvar Grad. We rented 8 bikes from Bota, quick, easy, and at a fair price. The bikes were all excellent: recent model light mountain bikes with front suspension, disc brakes, and good gear sets. Sinisa at the shop keeps the bikes very clean and we were pleased to find he keeps them as well adjusted as we keep our own equipment at home. He was very good helping us plan the route, as we were going over the mountainous spine of Hvar and we needed to be certain to be on the correct road and avoid the busy highway. All in all a great experience.

As a family we were looking for reliable bikes that would enable as to enjoy a leisurely but challenging ride to both Jelsa and Stari Grad. Mr Sinisa was so helpful in arranging the bikes for all of us and ensuring that we had a great experience so much so that we hired them for two more days which allowed us to experience the wonderful areas around Vrboska.
Nothing was too much - thanks for our biking experience!!!!!

I’m walking away from the place as I type. This morning I got up early enough to bag the first paddle board slot of the morning and paddled across to the island opposite. The location of this place is exceptional as you can see. The young team that work there are lovely and whilst I’m there they are busy teaching tiny kids how to windsurf. You can tell they’re having as much as the kids who are laughing with them in the water without even realising they are being taught at the same time. Yesterday we took two kayaks out for four hours. My daughter and I in one and my husband and son in the other. We explored and found extraordinary coves and rustic little beach bars. We exercised, played cards, laughed together and properly bonded. Definitely come here if you’re planning a trip to Vrboska - it’s incredible!!!!

I rented bikes and I can say with pleasure that the bikes are of excellent quality, all four, we enjoyed riding them. Mr. Sinisa recommended the right bikes for us individually, and in the end he was kind enough to take us all back to the hotel. It was a pleasure to work with him.

Partly our fault for not giving the bikes a proper once over - my front tyre was smooth & I fell off injuring my knee very badly, which required a trip to hospital & stitches in my leg.
There was no basic 1st Aid. Their main concern seemed to be that we shouldn’t tell the hospital that I fell off the bike & to say I fell on the beach!
At our expense, we got a taxi to the hospital & hired a car the following day to get to closest pharmacy - 30kms away. Other than in passing, we weren’t asked how I was, whether they could help in any way!

We were three friends who signed up for the Try it out course. Started with a short overview of the basics on land.

Unfortunately we had no wind that day, but we could spend the time on paddle boards and they only charged us a small amount for the on land course.

Would recommend having a visit, on normal days the wind is probably stable but for a try it out course would recommend calling in the morning to check conditions.
