Downwinders

Beginners

The most important thing for a beginner in order to get up on the board and kite is to be able to drift downwind, to go with the direction of the wind, step up on the board and ride. If you don’t have the space to drift (because of too many people around, onshore winds, etc) then it becomes more difficult. The kiteboardingschool team has found and provide you many different downwind tours according to your skills to be able to enjoy yourself while learning kiteboarding.

The downwind tours are taking place between Patra (Cape Drepano) and Akrata at the western part of Greece (1.30-2.00 hours from Athens) from the beginning of March until the end of October. We can arrange accommodation and transportation  for you if you prefer, so don’t hesitate to contact us

Cape Drepano Downwinders

Cape Drepano is probably the best spot in Greece right now and we operate there since 2007. Every day we are doing small or big downwinds (with a rescue boat) according to your needs to be able to enjoy yourselves learning kiteboarding away from the crowd and completely safe.

Aigio Downwinders

The area around Aigio is probably one of the best places for downwind kitesurfing sessions since the wind is blowing always side or side-on shore. With an experienced kiter or teacher with you and a 4X4 following from the land you will be able to kite for 1,2 or 3 hours without thinking of staying upwind.

Experts

Due to the morphology of the Corinthian channel (Western Greece) usually, we have strong winds throughout the whole coastline of the North Peloponnese (30-40 N.miles). The two major winds are the west and the east that are blowing strong for 8-9 months. It's rare that we don’t have any wind throughout the coastline and when we do we go out for some fishing games. The madness started 6 years ago and now every day with strong winds we organize a small or big downwind tour according to the weather. The King of the downwind tours is the ‘Cape Drepano downwind tour’ which is a 20 N.miles  downwind run with a couple of flat spots on the way and a lot of kiteloop fun on the way. For the safety of the participants, we have mobile communication with the shore, 3 4X4 jeeps, 1 rescue boat with us and 2 standing by and 1 or 2 lifeguards with us.

Attention: We strongly advise not to do the downwind sessions on your own unless you know the area too well and you have a rescue boat standing by. The Corinthian channel it can be very vicious with waves over 8 feet and wind up to 9+bf. The depth is reaching 800 meters and it has a lot of currents and the wind can change rapidly to offshore. Our team with more than 100 downwinds in the area, will brief you and organize for you such sessions with safety. Book you downwind sessions here.

Under no circumstances, we will be accountable for any accident if you decided to do a downwind session without our supervision
