Mikri Vigla in Naxos is known for its long sandy beach and the favorable wind conditions for kitesurfing. The dominant winds are side-onshore, so in the rare case where something goes wrong, you will be carried back to the beach. The wind speed is increased thanks to the Venturi effect created in between Parthena island and the nearby mountains.
"Naxos Kite life" and the instructor, Petros has created customized tuition for beginners. All lessons are done in private so you can get the most out of your lesson till you become a confident rider. It is proposed to start your lesson with a 2-hours lesson per day, as kitesurfing is physically demanding, and the fatigue slows down progression.
All kitesurfing courses are done in private mode, or semi-private if you are coming with your friends of no more than 2 people per instructor. With the 2 hours starter lesson, you will practice on the beach with a beginner's kite while learning the basics of kitesurfing.
On the next steps, you can practice your waterlaunch, turning, going upwind, going downwind, jibes and many more. All lessons are divided by 2 hours.
