Agios Nikolaos kite spot it's perfect place for training and learning kiteboarding,the thermique wind start to blow every days around 12H30 between 15 and 20 knots some day wind can blow more than 30 knots. :rollgrin:

The first part: The front beach,on the left side of the beach we got a place reserved for the local school IDAS Kiteclubl it's possible to give lesson if you become member of the club.
We got also on the beach shower,wc and beach bar.
On the right side of the beach swimming area, is prohibited to kite inside.

Where it's perfect for training or take some freestyle lesson with local rider.

The people are lovely.
You can go in the evening to eat in the village in the good local tavern and bar.

Been there 4 times, the wind was never more than 20 knts, the beach is clean but the water :roll: . People are awesome realy nice, but you have some kitesurfers who live in tents near the spot in no camping area. Locals have to do something.
for that reason I kite only on Milos beach on the island of Lekada and sleep in a lovely camp 7km from the spot in a camp caled Episcopos.
There are a lot of better spots around the world, but you could not find better people like greece are.

I agree the spot is nice, but when i was there (Summer 2010) it was never more than 10-12 knots. The wind is always 3-5 knots less than on the island so it has to be one of those few days a month where there is 25 knots in lefkada to kite there. In normal thermic winds in lefkada is not strong enough unfortunately.

My friend was there 1 week more than i was and could kite there 2 days, still not enough considering 20 days trip. Water smells a bit to be honest but so flat is worthy (if there is wind). Wish it were a bit more windy, id be there every year hehe
