been there this summer to kite: strange summer since meltemi did`nt kick in. but it was still windy.
not really optimum for kiting. i was the only kiter beside the wind surf instructor who has the kite as a toy for days with no wind.
devil´s bay:
extremely flat water, very strong offshore wind is but very gutsy, and believe me they are mean! even for windsurfers, since the wind races down the valley and falls over cliffs. in high season very crowded with windsurfer.

chicken bay:
airport is close, they don´t like the idea of kiting there

luv spot:
side onshore, wind 1-2bft weaker than in devil´s bay. starting off in a small sandy bay surrounded by cliffs were wind is gutsy followd by windholes with no wind for seconds (kites falls) and alot weaker than out on the reef. out there is cool!

it´s a bit rough, on the other hand: for sure there is wind in karpathos.

september is supposed to be nice, winds a bit weaker and more stable, less crowded with wndsurfers.
