This western part of Greece and especially Corinthian Gulf are ideal for kiteboarding because of the frequent winds - almost every day. With more than 6 kite-spots around Patra, Kiteboardingschool is offering the best condition for a memorable experience. Cape Drepano, Mavri miti, aliki, nikoleika, digeliotika are some of the spots where we are kiting. Our home spot Cape Drepano actually is a sandbar sticking out of the water which means that there is an onshore and an offshore side in every wind direction. In the area, we have nice thermals and high wind situations according to the season, low and high tides and sometimes strong currents. That's why at the spot we provide rescue services for all windsurfers and kitesurfers (More info Here)
One hour drive from our home spot Cape Drepano there is the river mouth of Axeloos (Dioni) which is providing a nice lagoon with warm waters for the experts and a huge swallow bay (onshore) where the beginners can learn with safety. With Souths winds (not often during the summertime) we drive 1.15 h. south-west to find and ride the wavy spots of Ag Ilias and Katakolon. The south west coast of Greece is an unknown pearl with huge sandy beaches, not crowded during the summer and a lot of kitesurfing (Pilos, Costa Navarino) and Surfing spots (Kalo Nero, Lagouvardos) on the way!
Moreover, 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) and every day we organize small or big downwind tours according to the weather... The two dominant 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 boat adventures in the Gulf. 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. Kiteboarding lessons and camps are available in the area (more info here).
Furthermore, there are activities like mountain bikes or downhill, diving, boat excursions, hiking at the beautiful gorge of Vouraikos, wine tasting tours and much more available upon request. So, if you want to discover new places, still unspoiled and unattached, if you want to is the real Greece, enjoy the Greek hospitality join us this year.
