With flat, shallow water in the bay and waves near the channel, Sigri Surf/Kite offers a little bit of something for everyone! The Greek Meltemi Winds blow nearly every day from about mid-May to mid-September. These thermal winds originate in the Black Sea and are accelerated by a thermal effect and the mountains surrounding the island. Sigri is situated directly in the wind zone and both North and South winds blow through the village making Sigri a kiteable spot all year round. The launching area is on the right hand side of our surfcenter. In this 50 meter wide area the wind is side-offshore and therefore a little gusty. But directly in front of our center the wind blows cross-offshore making the water butter flat! We know how much advanced riders love our spot, but keep in mind this area is only available for use by our clients. We offer daily safaris to a nearby spot called Kite Beach. Only about 1.5 km south of Sigri, the huge beach, shallow waters, and perfect side-onshore wind makes it an ideal location for teaching kiteboarding. Insuring the safety of our clients, we always have an extra instructor on location who is in charge of the rescue boat.

The Destination

Imagine yourself enjoying a pristine beach in Greece, but like 40 years ago. Sigri is a small fishing village near the western tip of Lesbos Island. Often called the land that time forgot, the town has quaint rooms, delicious restaurants with inexpensive fish, and the best part is the wind blows year round. Bonus points because Sigiri is home to an 18th century Turkish castle! Important to know: Unfortunately, there is no ATM or bank in Sigri so if you need money you have to go to Eressos, which is about 30 minutes away by car or you can take the bus. Furthermore, there is no petrol station in Sigri the next one is in Antissa (20 minutes by car).

The Experience

To make your life easier and more enjoyable, Sigri Surf/Kite acts as a general travel agent for the entire destination. Not only do we manage the professional Kitesurf/Windsurf Center, we also handle all accommodation bookings, transfers and rental cars for all direct bookings and travel agents.

The Kite & Surf Center

Our surf centre is situated at the north end of Sigri bay. We have an office, a small bike rental shop, a bar with free internet, a huge sun terrace, shower, bathroom, and different options for equipment storage (e.g. windsurf sails, boards and kite storage). We have brand new 2018 equipment. As an added bonus for your safety, we have two rescue boats on hand.

At the surf bar we have a delicious range of snacks and drinks that you can feel free to enjoy on the sun loungers.

In case there is no wind, we offer free SUP boards and bikes for a small fee. Sigri offers some really nice bike routes for skilled riders and novices alike. We also organize SUP Safaris to the picturesque beaches round Sigri.

Our kite storage prices include daily safaris to flatwater or wave spots, rescue, use of sunbeds, toilets, showers, and the infrastructure of the center.

We treat our guests like friends and we always organize group outings to restaurants, cocktail parties, and pool parties.
