New Big Blue kiteboarding Center
The kite spot is situated in Psalidi, the area north east of Kos Island and there we enjoy a venturi effect created between Turkey and the Greek coast.
From afar you can easily identify this spot by a small white light house. The beach is mainly made up of pebbles mixed with sand. For the moment it’s a natural virgin area, but this summer the area will be improved with a shaded area where we can sit together and talk about our passion. Downwind of this light house there is a nice and clean area which we keep clear for teaching and launching/landing kites. The beach slopes away quite quickly (5m), with the first 100m flat water followed by a nice progressive swell. The wind comes mainly side off from the left which is why upwind body dragging is great (and necessary) to practice on this spot. The wind mostly blows around 15 - 23 knots. I suggest to an experimented 80kg rider to come with 9m² and 12m² and with a board between 133cm and 136 cm.
We use only NKB kites and boards. NORTH KITEBOARDING is the brand that leads the market, with products that offers quality in every detail.
The center has different sizes of boards and kites to fit body types, skills, and expectations.
For 2016 we use Neo and Evo kites, Gonzales, Spike and Jaime boards.
The lesson price includes all the equipment: the kites, the boards, the body protection and the safety equipment as well as transfers to the spot and rescues.
We follow the IKO system and all instructors are IKO certified. They speak English, French, Italian, and Spanish.
Having fun, progression and safety are our priority! Come and join us at the Big Blue and learn to kite the easy way!
