Greece is one of the top kitesurf regions in Europe! From mid-May to early October, the famous "Meltemi"-wind system brings perfect wind conditions notably the Cyclades and the Dodecanese islands, but as well some amazing mainland spots.
Marmari & Pentali Islands
From the day on when I put the first step on to the catamaran I felt like I was in paradise, perfect secret empty spots, perfect wind conditions, very nice company, perfect service you wouldn\'t expect on a sailing boat...thx for that on the crew and the organizer! An epic kite experience you shouldn´t miss.
Right from the start, this voyage on the luxury 40 ft Catamaran Giorgis II was a fantastic adventure. We started off in Paros, Meltemi had just started in time so we had our first session in 20 kn plus. The crew consisting of three other like-minded kite-aficionados plus of course the wonderful cook Mister 'Z' and the Captain Tomaz turned out to be the perfect line-up for the amazing week we had. The days were an uninterrupted sequel of highlights on every level: - food was sumptuous - the kite sessions we had were more than exciting also due to the strong Meltemi - the good sleep and relaxation we had in the comfy beds of the spacious cabins - the feeling of safety we had knowing you'd be fully monitored getting out on the water so that boat launching lost its initially slightly unpredictable character - the downwinders we had being accompanied by the cat and allowing us to further experiment our moves and jibes. Thank you so much, Tomaz and Zdravko, for all your never-ending efforts to make this trip as outstanding as it turned out to be!
The Meltimi winds blew 25-35knts the entire time, which makes for an incredible week of kiteboarding regardless of anything else. As for the kitecruise, it was an overall great experience. Our captain, Chandre, and our chef, Polona, were wonderful, and the 44ft Lagoon catamaran had plenty of room for the eight of us onboard. Looking forward to another cruise in the near future.
The spot is magical. a place where you want to go back to. since the wind conditions are quite tricky (very gusty at times) you are better off as an experienced rider. The guys from the surf club are doing a great job. The rescue boat is an assset to the spot which can make the less experienced riders much more comfortable.
