inland normally is too gusty...or do you know any that's not? Sea of Galilea?
Not really.
Sea of Galilee is ok with the 20 knots but still gusty.

Sea of galilee is not gusty, but not really flat.. mostly chop. In the offshore areas it's super gusty.

We're heading to Lefkada in a couple of days time, sounds great with a variety of spots, good wind (25 out of 30 days kiting in May) and it only gets better as it gets hotter!

Going with Mark and Sarah from Always Windy http://www.alwayswindy.com/blog/lefkada-kitesurfing/ we'll let you know how good it was when we get back!

Hey Toby..

Athens Loutsa spot with meltemi is ideal and around there we have spots that have also thermals.2 hours drive you go in 10 spots.Needless to say about the politismic culture you can see and the best food and night life in the world.Dimitri is gonna be here around 16 and we re going to a kite festival to Lamia (2 hours drive) You can be a guest star with Dimitri.We can cover your transportation there.Pm me if you want to have more info.

Going to Lefkada on 4th of July, and wasn't sure if there is the wind.
So now I am happy and packing my gear!!!!

If we will see Toby with his pro tricks, will be even better ;-)

Raches in Greece. You might meet occasionally some professional riders as well there. Works practically for all directions.
I will be there end of August when "Meltemi" wind hits Greece.
