Looking for somewhere available for a last minute summer break?
Sportif have a new flat water and waves destination – Lemnos in the Greek Islands. Direct flights are still available for the peak holiday period and up till October from the UK and a choice of accommodation from budget self catering studios to luxury, apartments, villas and hotel accommodation. The centre has been established for 15 years and offers the latest kit rental and instruction. Families, mixed ability groups and mixed sports groups ie windsurfing and kitesurfing all have plenty of space. This is peak wind season for the Greek Islands too, so you can be sure of the weather.
Keros Bay is a wide, natural bay on the east side of Lemnos and extending some 4km from North to South. In the north, where the Windsurf and Kitesurf centre is based, the smooth flat water is accessible directly from the beach with cross shore winds providing a huge freeride, slalom and freestyle area. To the south are bump and jump conditions with a separate wave beach with onshore winds. The prevailing Aegean winds are from the north east, blowing steadily from now to October averaging between 15 and 27 knots most days.
The centre offers the latest equipment with all new boards from Starboard and RRD, Severne rigs, plus top quality kitesurfing equipment from RRD, Airush, Crazyfly and Slingshot.
This is a fantastic spot to learn to windsurf or kitesurf – with the shallow water, beginners and launch area right next to the centre. From here you can get directly into the full strength of the wind within minutes for super slalom conditions. At the other end of the bay, the Wave beach provides 0.5- 2.5m waves – ideal for learning to wave sail – right through to 4m in late season.
