Hi mate,

The places I recommend in Greece are Paros(my hometown), Rhodes -Prasonisi and Lefkada

If you come in August ,Paros is a top choice. Meltemi wind blows almost every day. 14-30+knots from 9am till 8pm. Flat/choppy conditions.

All action is in Punda beach were two kite schools are operating.

In case you need additional info p.m. me

Prasonissi (Rhodos) way too crowded in summer. Spring/fall okay if you get wind but summer way too crowded. Night life too far away.

Paros is nice. August kind of too crowded. Choppy on outside. Just a little sort of flat water on inside but all full of lesson from kiteschools. Great night life.

Lefkada is wind strong then some great spots (theoretically illegal now has national kite ban) but is wind medium then only main kite beach work and very choppy and straight onshore. No where to sit out of sun and wind. Longer season and wind more reliable then in Aegean. No have to take ferry. Okay night life.

Some other really nice secret spots but me no tell. But probably illegal now with national kite ban. Also lots of strike this year. Ferries and airport closed the last few days. Riots in Athens so stay away from city.

there is a very nice village 3 - 3.30 hours from athens.

Peuki in North Evia

the landscape is fantastic. mountains full of trees

3 spots
almost every day side shore wind, big chop, 17-25knots
one spot flat 20-30knots
one more windy side on 20-30knots

there is nightlife
all the barwomen are from sweden-germany-spain-estonia-lithouanian

THE MOST IMPORTANT THE KITE THERE IS LEGAL

the guys there with the school and the beach bar are very organized

happy kiting
