I live in Zakynthos Greece...
Is there anyone else who practises kitesurfing in the vicinity, if so would it be possible to contact me.
Thanks.

Hi,

I live one island up from you - Kefalonia. Me and a couple of others are keen kitesurfers and get out 2 or 3 times a week in the bay up from Argostoli. 17m weather in the summer for us (90kgs) and not a sole on the water, except for a few fishing boats. Safe and sandy launches too. How is it in Zante? Many launches? I know it gets very windy at Club Peligoni (in the north I think). Could be worth a look - they operate sailing and windsurfing. I've had mates who've worked there and its supposed to be pretty good wind.

Check it out here if you're ever over. Send us a mail.

Best,

Chris

tahnks guys, the weather in zakynthos is pretty good for kitesurfing , the wind on the west coast is slightly stronger and more consistent on the west coast but unfortunately the beaches are fewer and further between as it is a pretty "cliffy" coastline.
The beaches on the east coast and in the south are fairly sandy , especially in the south. I live in Tsilivi which although being a slightly small beach it is brilliant for safe water launching as it is pretty shallow (waist high) 50-60 m out and then it is pretty easy to work your way out in to the sea, the only problem is that being high season, the beaches are pretty full and you definately need assistance during the day to get up so as to avoid potential accidents. I work all day and on ideal days get out at about 8pm and go for about an hour or two.(Not really ideal as it limits my learning time) The wind varies but on most days it picks up at around 4 o clock till 9 so there is a window, but we are blessed with quite a few windy days when the wind averages at 12 to 20mph, which is ideal if you know what you are doing. Hope this helps you all and tehn in turn hopefully help me as well. Thanks again for yor responses.
Rory

Hey guys,

Quick question to those of you in Greece....
I am going to be out there( may be Paros, but looking at Zakynthos as well or other islands) in mid-september, trying to get the best opinion as to taking my gear or not. Does the wind pretty much shut down that time of the year?
THANKS! :D

Petro,
Do your fiance a favor this time and don't carry your gear with you.
You got plenty wind in the Bay Area. You will score good points.

Or - you can come with us to Santorini end of Sept.
