Water Ski & Wakeboard Instructor
Organisation: The Peligoni Club
Location: Zakynthos, Greece
Term: May - September
Our coastal location is ideal for watersports and with the breezy nature of the afternoons, we also have fantastic calm, flat water in the mornings. The waterski and wakeboard team operate from 7am every morning to take advantage of the very best conditions Zakynthos has to offer, for as long as the weather permits, resuming in the evening if the wind dies off.
We are looking for enthusiastic waterski and wakeboard instructors to join our team and deliver fun, engaging and safe lessons to guests of all ages and abilities.
Sessions are offered throughout the morning for guests of all abilities from veteran skiers to children learning for the first time. As the conditions start to change in the afternoon, we offer banana boat and ringo rides, which are popular with guests of all ages.
If the conditions allow, we will offer more ski sessions in the early evening for anyone who wants to give it a try or to small groups who perhaps want to go out together for an hour or so with some good music and a few drinks on board.
Waterskiing and wakeboarding are extremely popular and our Mastercrafts get booked up very quickly. The ski team must ensure that the boats are always well maintained and kept in excellent working order to avoid any disappointed guests.
This is the ideal position for someone who is keen to share their passion for the water with guests of all ages and to inspire, motivate and reassure them in order to help them reach their potential.
