Somewhere in between the many islands of Croatia lies a little kitesurf & windsurf paradise called Viganj. Due to its unique geographical position, Viganj has become a renowned meeting spot for watersport enthusiasts but as well other outdoor sports ( such as running, hiking, SUP, diving, kayak etc). When examining the map you might notice that the village is located on a sea channel between the peninsula of Peljesac and island Korcula. Due to this, the incoming wind has the tendency to accelerate giving you the choice to boost your jumps with an extra notch hang-time. Of course only possible when you're an advanced rider but we are here to pass on that skill. The ideal kitesurf conditions kick in when Mistral (northwest wind) welcomes the spot. Usually from May to November, with reliable windy months between mid-May until mid-September. In this period you could expect thermal wind Mistral starting from 13:00 up till sunset hours with average wind strength of 14-25 knots. The mornings hours are usually greeted by light wind conditions (7-10knots) from South East direction, leaving you a golden opportunity for light wind training such as foiling session over calmer water or windsurf beginner lesson. Overall a fantastic kitesurf atmosphere over fairly flat water and steady wind. Most used kiteboarding size is between 10-15m2.
Viganj is a small village to the west/south coast of Peljesac peninsula with influences of maritime traditions that overlooks the sapphire-colored Adriatic sea. The promising 260 sunny days & the romantic beauty of the Peljesac nature, makes it an ideal destination to enjoy a peaceful holiday and other recreational activities ( wine tasting, hiking, diving, SUP etc). The population has long been involved in agriculture, fishing and, more recently, tourism. Visit historical sites such as St. Ivan church (located on a hill with a lush view of the Peljesac canal); St. Ilija hill; and the Nakrana village. Allot of the shore is dotted with pebbled rocks and lush Meditarian & subtropical vegetation of old cypress sage, olive groves, and vineyards. Viganj has become a renowned kitesurf & windsurf heaven, in fact, it has one of the best wind conditions in Croatia. And if you have had enough of surfing, there is always the possibility to enjoy a cold drink with an incredible moonrise view towards the island Korcula.
