Postby csokii » Sat Jun 21, 2014 1:14 am

Hi

I am planning a kitetrip around the greek islands in july and august.
I would appreciate any info regarding to the best places and budget accomodations.
At the moment Im thinking travelling with ferry around Rhodes,Kos,Limnos,Naxos,Paros.
Any other spots that I should add to my list?
Also anybody knows anything about the oversized baggage fee on the ferries?

Thanks guys

SURF 8 & 12 for the waves. RENEGADE 6.5 and 9 for all around kiting. And some times I use my son's JUNIOR PRO 4 when it blows 45+ for the waves.
Just try the EPICKITES and you will see for yourself.

Hello csokii,
Since you are going to Greece the first word you need to learn will be: YIA SOU MALAKA :thumb:
Actually don't use this word. This word is use only between good friends.
Any way if you plan a trip to the Greek island the best time to go will be the month you are going which July and August because of the Meltemi winds.
Will be doing some demos in Greece. Will be arriving on July 20th and will spend 4 days in Athens and then take the ferry boat an go to Rhodos for 7 days and then take another ferry boat and go to Mykonos for 3 days and then end up in Paros for 12 days. But Naxos and Ios are great islands to go. Actually you have tons of places to go kiting in Greece. Now if you go to Rhodos, make sure to go to Prasonisi which is on the North end of Rhodos.
If you email me at: dimitri@epickites.com I can put you in touch with people for accommodation.
Now that is what I call EPIC customer service.

I recently got the ferry from Mykonos to Paros with all my kite gear plus a suitcase and there were no extra luggage fees. The price was the same for no luggage or as much as you can carry.

Their is no fee in the ferries for your bags. The only fee you will pay is your ticket and the ticket for your car if you plan to bring your car.
This is a picture of me yesterday afternoon from Athens getting ready to take the ferry boat to go to Paros. As you can see I need a car. Will be in Paros for 5 days for some demos and then back to the USA and back again to Greece on July 20th for the big event.
