The unique location of Lefkadi between Evia Island and the main land offers amazing wind conditions. The side-shore thermal winds blow almost everyday with an average of 15-23 knots- 9 and 12 meter kites will be used most. The water conditions are perfect for learning with small waves and an area with flat water.
Lefkadi is a small fisherman village located 10 minutes from Chalkida, the capital of Evia Island and 1 hour from Athens, easily accessible by a bridge which connects to the mainland. The kitecenter is based just on the waterfront edge and 10 minutes walking from the picturesque village of Lefkadi. There is an incredible view of the twin volcanoes while kiting and stunning sunsets from the kite school snack bar.
With experienced instructors, shallow water areas, private facilities and world class weather conditions, Greece is the perfect place for both learning and practicing kiteboarding. Not only is Evia Island one of the windiest places in Greece, is a perfect multi-activity destination where you can explore on the water, under the water, from the air or in the mountains! Venture off the beaten path to explore the ancient footpaths, visit scenic villages or trek into the mountains to find beautiful waterfalls.
The consistency of the wind will ensure lots of practice time so your kite skills progress a ton during your stay. Beginners will learn to fly the kite first before going in the water, very soon students will experience their first body drag and not long after that, will be standing on the board for the first time! The winds blows side on-shore which is the safest direction for learning also allowing our students to progress as quickly as possible.
