Windsurfing is an exciting sport for everybody, irrespective of age and sex. No special body strength is needed as only correct technique is required.
Apart from being fun and an Olympic sport, windsurfing has also been a professional sport since 1985, as well as a demonstration and competition sport in indoor areas, where the necessary conditions are artificially created.
Since weather conditions in Greece are ideal (mild climate, suitable wind strength, etc), the sport’s popularity has increased tremendously as more and more Greeks are “playing” systematically. In fact, European and World competitions (tournaments) –some of which rank among the more important international events- are held in various parts of the country during the summer months. At many of the country’s organized beaches you have the opportunity to windsurf or take lessons given by trained instructors.
