WHAT CONDITIONS DOES THE SPOT OFFER?
Vassiliki’s extraordinary local wind phenomenon is renowned throughout the windsurfing world; it’s a thermal wind, accelerated by the mountain overlooking the bay. This means you get the full range of conditions all in one day, every day!
Mornings: Beginners and improvers have a gentle start with the light on-shore breeze and calm, flat sea which makes learning easy.
Afternoons: The more advanced can go as wild as they wish in the howling cross-shore. The sea remains fairly flat, but there is some great chop for bumps & jump.
FOR WHICH TYPE OF RIDER IS THE SPOT MOST SUITABLE?
Vassiliki is ideal for all levels, from beginner to advanced and it is particularly renowned as a freestyle spot. Kids Club and Pro-Kids provide specialised instruction and gear to get the next generation on board. Club Vass also has a dedicated Foil Centre with brand new premium gear and expert coaching as the spot is great for wing & wind foiling.
