Any rider knows that the best spot to ride is the one that requires the less traveling. Less time on the road means more ride time and less time wasted in case there is no wind. Sykia’s beach is just fine for kite and windsurfing on windy days and 3km away from one of the best 16 kitesurf spots in Greece (as stated in the Greek kitesurfing community www.kitesurfing.gr). Also, an hour’s drive away, is one of the best – if not the best – kite-surfing spot in Greece, Akrotiri (Cape) Drepano in Rio. It goes without saying that you can windsurf these spots as well. You can check the conditions of Xylokastro and Cape Drepano in www.windguru.com.
The final worry on a riders mind is taking care of equipment at the end of the session. All the hotels of Sykia have a clean surface with fresh water to rinse your equipment and let it dry out. So go ahead, bring your equipment with you and spend your day riding and end your session with a chilled beer or cocktail in one Sykia’s nice beach bars!
