Sports in Mikri Vigla, Naxos
Your holiday in Naxos will become an unforgettable experience once you begin to learn and practice the most famous water sports on the island: Windsurfing and Kitesurfing. Since these two sports mostly depend on the wind parameters, Mikri Vigla beach has become the ideal spot to practice them thanks to “Meltemi” wind that blows here. After getting experience with the surf center in Agios Georgios beach, Flisvos opened in 2007 the windsurf and kitesurf center in Mikri Vigla and since then is offering courses adapted to physical conditions, budget and the level of each surfer.
Experienced instructors will offer you courses under strict observation. Your safety is the priority and it is the basic principle of this center, that`s why the gear and the training are essential before getting into the water. A wide range of equipment is available at Flisvos Centre and you will learn how to choose the perfect one for you. Even if you are intermediate or experienced, there are always some tricks to learn and techniques to improve. Get ready to learn from the best, have some fun and make your stay in Naxos memorable!
The school is dedicated to beginner and experienced kitesurfers as well and besides the lessons, there is also the possibility to only rent the equipment if you fulfil the conditions of being a confident rider. As a beginner, you will start learning the theoretical aspects that are important for your safety before you get to feel the board under your feet and you will always be under the observation of your experienced instructor. Petros will love to share with you all the tricks he learned over the years and patiently explain to you every small detail needed. Once you are ready, the fun will begin and you will start practicing everything you have learned so far. Your holiday in Naxos will become more than expected!
