Kite spot at Glyfada beach NaxosUnspoiled Location, Meltemi Wind.
THE KITE SPOT
Naxos Kitesurf Club is located at Glyfada beach, an Unspoiled location, long sandy beach, crystal clear turquoise water at south – west of Naxos, Greece.
North wind is the most common and it’s side shore that makes the kite spot ideal to learn kite boarding, Wind Surfing or SUP.
Naxos is well known in Europe for water sports, consistent wind conditions and special during summer time because of the ”Meltemi” effect.
Glyfada beach never is crowded so the kitesurfing lessons for beginners are very safe and comfortable as is separate from independent kiters. That makes the spot very safe for your first steps into learning kite boarding. Another unique feature is that it’s the only beach on the Island that combines relaxation, recreation.
Because of the size and shape of the bay, families or the individuals swimmers, can enjoy as much the beach as there is separate place that is only them.
NAXOS WIND & WEATHER
Naxos island is one of the most wind consistent wind locations in whole Europe, specially during summer time and yearly with more than 240 days blowing 15+ knots.
The Meltemi wind was known by the old Greeks as the Etesian (annual) northern winds and results from a high pressure system (>1025) laying over the Balkan/Hungary area and a relatively low pressure (<1010) system over Turkey that is channeling jet-effect (venturi) between islands increasing the wind.
Furthermore, it can be characterized as one of the few Mediterranean winds that do not necessarily die out at the end of the day and can easily last more than three to six days and start over again.
Specially where Naxos kitesurf Club is locate, the micro climate at the kite spot, which cant be predicted it and it’s almost always 3-5 knots more than the rest of the island. If you look for predictions in Wind guru and similar services and you see no wind, just contact us or have a look in our Facebook fun page 😉 ?
The climate is naturally Mediterranean, with warm summers and relatively mild winters.
