We strongly recommend you enroll in one of the many kitesurfing courses provided by SantoriniKite.
Located at Monolithos Beach, on the southeast coastline of the island, this is an amazing hub for kitesurfing in Santorini.
In summer, the blowing Meltemia winds make kitesurfing incredibly safe for beginners; on the other hand, just after 20 knots, advanced riders can join in on the fun as the small reef creates waves.
That explains why it has become the premier kitesurfing spot in Santorini. The area also attracts windsurfers and even surfer and SUP lovers.
That spot is advantageous, primarily due to good wind conditions. Situated at the airport area, next to Kamari beach, at a distance of just 9kms from Fira, SantoriniKite is extremely easy to access.
Initially, in terms of basics, you will learn how to ride the first meters on the board. Soon you will be successfully attempting upwind sessions and even high jumps or wave riding. In the advanced lessons, you will learn jumps and tricks, transitions, back rolls, unhooked kite loops, and wave riding. You will learn how to use a surfboard with or without straps, turns, maneuvers, and how to get the waves.
If you are ready to jump aboard the kitesurfing hype, enroll in any of the lessons that SantoriniKite conducts every day between 10 am to 6 pm in small groups of 2 to 3 people.
Let your fears and hesitation away and join the absolute fun.
