September in Greece (please advice)

Postby nurenbergvova » Sun Aug 12, 2018 10:45 pm

Hi everyone,

I’m planning a trip to Greece in mid September for a week.
I’m looking for recommendation on a good spot where winds still blow (I understand this is the end of the season).
I’m still a beginner. I can’t go upwind yet. So I also need to consider that.
If the spot has a kite school where I can take a lesson or two, could be great!

I’m pretty new to this amazing sport, so any help is appreciated.

Thanks for your help.

Theres no guarantees. But i recon Rhodes still should be good. I've had almost a whole week of wind in Sept.
There are schools along the whole west coast, unless they shut down for the season. But Prasonisi at the southern tip of the island should probably have the most activity.

Thanks a lot for your reply.
I'll check out Rhodes.

Do you know if Lefkada might be good?
I understand that in Lefkada it's thermal winds, not Maltemi like in Aegean.
I read everywhere that maltemi supposed to stop blowing in September, while Thermal winds are less predictible, but can blow until October.

Thanks again.
