Mikri Vigla, the long sandy beach in Naxos, is known as one of the best spots in South Europe to practice Kitesurfing. During all summer, the most favorable conditions are found here- the wind is blowing from morning till evening and the most dominant winds are side-onshore meaning no matter what, you will end up safely back to the beach.
Kitesurfing can be a totally new sport for you, but if you really want to experience the island vibe, you have to give it a try. Before getting into the water and flying on a board, there are some steps to follow and some lessons to learn. Under the observation of an experienced instructor, you will be taught what this sport means, which are the safety rules and how to handle a kite before getting to feel the board under your feet. The course can be done in private or in small groups and will take no more than 2 hours per day because this water sport involves a physical demand as well. After you pass the three levels of the course, you will become a certified independent rider (certified by IKO). If you are already familiar with kitesurfing, you will have the chance to improve your technique and learn some tricks from the best instructors.
