WHO ARE WE?
Funtastic is a water sports centre that has been operating in L’Escala, Girona, since 1978. The centre is a base for officially approved water skiing and sailing schools covering all disciplines. The schools offer water skiing, wakeboarding, windsurfing, catamaran sailing and dinghy sailing courses.
Funtastic is also an RS test centre where you can test several models in the range of RS Saili, the famous British sailboat builders, or the fabulous Weta 4.4 Trimaran, among others. What’s more, we offer other activities such as SUP (stand-up paddleboarding), kayaking, Ski-Bus rides, Ringo rides and the rental of motorboats without a licence. Last of all, we have a sheltered buoy field where you can moor your boat or jet ski.
Petra is German and has been working at Funtastic for 25 years. She’s our front office manager, course coordinator and customer service manager. It’s truly impressive to see her dealing with customers in five languages almost simultaneously without even thinking about it!
Eva joined one year later than Iona, but they work together in the house and she also loves windsurfing. She is a leisure instructor and has training in kayaking. She is a cheerful and very versatile person. She is preparing a master’s degree in teacher training.
Xavi is one of the co-founding partners of Funtastic. He’s been part of the staff almost from the beginning and is a sailing and windsurfing instructor. He’s also the operational manager, making sure that everything always runs smoothly, and is in charge of equipment maintenance.
The founding partner of Funtastic, Toni created the company by accident in 1978 but once he got going he didn’t want to stop. He’s a dinghy sailing, cruise sailing, windsurfing and water skiing instructor. And he’s also the back office manager.
