Karpathos today is among the top destinations worldwide for windsurfing, offering daily excellent winds for all windsurfing needs, whether you are a professional or just staring… Located in the Southern part of the Island, the area around Karpathos international Airport - “ Afiartis “ just 7 klm. From Arkasa and 15 klm. From Karpathos town. This long narrow island of Karpathos juts out between Rhodes and Crete, and the meltemi (summer wind) blows full force from the north down through the high mountains, with high-wind days being virtually an everyday occurrence in July and August. Karpathos enjoys steady winds even in spring and autumn, making it an ideal spot for novices and those who wish to improve their surfing skills. But advanced surfers, too, can rely on getting a really good run for their money. It is simply a wind addicts’ paradise. The main centre in Gun Bay is a genuine high-wind loca- tion. The wind blows cross-offshore, and when it is strong, a 1-meter swell builds up about 500 m offshore, ideally suited to jump novices and loopers. The flat water near the shore is perfect for practicing gibes, and the offshore spit makes for safety. You can also surf out from Gun Bay to the next bay, De- vil’s Bay, which certainly lives up to its name. Here, the wind force is 1-2 figures higher on the Beaufort scale and the glassy surface of the water is perfect for blasting. The second center is situated in the middle of “Chickenbay” . From the wind-sheltered terrace you have a good view of surf events in the lagoon. Chickenbay has a touch-the-bottom area stretching for about 80 m, providing ideal conditions for the novices, intermediates and freestylers amongst you. This spot offers beginners’ and childrens’ courses, and, of course, „Unlimited Instruction” programs with all major windsurfing clubs , which allows you to improve your overall surf-skill level effortlessly. -The high wind venue in the Greek Islands. -Fantastic conditions for slalom and frestyle. -Gun Bay ideal for blasting. -Chicken ideal for beginners and children. -Unique atmosphere and social at Club Mistral centre. -Book early for August holidays - the busiest month of the season. Best Time: June-September. Launch: Sandy beach, shelving slowly into deeper water. Wind Direction: Cross offshore from left. Wind Type: Meltemi from north east. Shorebreak: None to slight. Water Conditions: Flatwater slalom blasting in high wind conditions. Suitability: Advanced intermediate +. Suitability:. Beginners Intermediates Intermediates Wave Sailling Conditions:.The high wind in Gun Bay usually strengthens to F4-8 between June and September and is good for in- termediate level upwards. This blows offshore from the beach, giving a flatwater launch with chop increasing and a 1m wind wave after 300m, which is suitable for both jumping novices and experts. As you approach the aptly named Devils Bay, the wind is about 1-2 bft stronger than in Gun Bay and the perfectly flat water delivers superb blasting conditions. In Chicken Bay the wind also blows cross offshore but with 1-2 bft less for- ce. Chicken Bay is ideal for beginners with an 80m wide shallow water area but also has a speed track. Although the wind is offshore, the layout of Gun Bay makes it a safe venue for all abilities. Many windsurfers who have discovered this spot, return year after year, to enjoy the extreme conditions almost guaranteed here, as a Gift from the Gods. This is the perfect destina- tion if you like hardcore conditions and somewhere to chill out at the end of each day.ut sapien congue aliquam.
