Kitesurfing is the fastest growing water sport in the world.
Its excitement, colour, sense of freedom and ease of learning and progression makes kitesurfing a must sport.
Feeling the rush of your first jump and getting some incredible airtime doesn't take years- it can happen in weeks!
Of course you can only get to this level by taking lessons from a professional instructor. Kiteboarding's not dangerous if you familiarize yourself with the safety aspects, which is why lessons are very important. We teach you all aspects of kitesurfing, which also includes learning about the wind and surf conditions as well as self rescue and of course how to kitesurf.
Rhodes Kitesurf 'Meltemi at Delfini' offers you safe instruction from IKO(International Kiteboarding Organisation) certified instructors on a beautiful long stretch of private sandy beach(most beaches in Rhodes are stones) with ideal water temperature and sideshore wind conditions which suit both beginner to advanced riders.
This makes our spot one of the best in the world!
Should you find the sport too challenging, don't worry - we have boat ready on the beach in case of any trouble. Safety is always first!
