Kitesurfing or Kiteboarding, whatever you call it, the only sure thing is that Mykonos offers the right environment to fall in love with.


If you are a fan of water sports, then you will definitely want to try out kitesurfing as it is more uncommon than some of the more famous water activities. If you have a lot of willingness for new adventures, you can find out where to take part with a little searching. On the other hand, if it is only a matter of time before you want to give kitesurfing a try, and are excited by the idea of kitesurfing, the beach of Korfos in Mykonos has a fully qualified Kite Centre to make a start.


What is Kitesurfing?

Kitesurfing is a water sport that requires air, an “eagle” and a board in order to be pushed into the water. Just as with all water sports, you need good balance to get started. Once you are up and running and are acquainted with the board, you can start experimenting with freestyle techniques, such as alternating your speed and jumping in waves. All you need is water, the help of the wind and patience until you find your rhythm.


Is Kitesurfing easy to learn?


Most beginners are completely new to water sports so don’t stress, the instructors are familiar with the idea that you will need guidance at first. The equipment is lightweight, so you are not required to be too strong. However, keep in mind that as a style of exercise it is not like aerobics. What is required, for purely safety reasons, is to be able to swim. Naturally, a good level of fitness will help you develop faster and save you from possible injuries. However, what you need to keep in mind is that, compared to other water and wind sports, kitesurfing is easier to learn. Especially in relation to surfing, and the general assumption of the instructors is that it takes less time to learn kitesurfing.


What challenges will I have to face?

Starting from trusting the equipment that you will be given, to fully adapting to operating it, you definitely want to take your time. At first it may seem quite difficult to coordinate your movements with the equipment based on the weather conditions you will be faced with, but all you need is time to adapt which is part of the fun. Again, don’t worry, a good instructor will act as your guide throughout this process in order for you to feel safe with every unstable factor, so pay attention to his every instruction.


Which tips should I keep in mind before the first lesson?


As cliché as it may sound, you have to relax and indulge in the moment. If you are too worried about your effort to balance, you will not help yourself to evolve step by step. Be patient and confident in the strength of your body. The adrenaline you will feel and the excitement of being partly in the air will compensate you.


Where can I try Kitesurfing?

If you find yourself in Mykonos, know the highlight of your holidays is just 2.5 km away from the picturesque Chora and 5′ by car from the International Airport of Mykonos. It is none other than the beach of Korfos, which is an earthly paradise for kitesurfing lovers. If, in fact, you are comfortable with the water, Mykonos does not only offer you kitesurfing as an option. In almost all its beaches you will be able to try snorkelling.


Those who wish to add a more cosmopolitan character to their vacations, just 300m away, will find themselves at one of the most beautiful beaches of Mykonos, Ornos. There, you can take advantage of the options available to you among the luxury hotels of Mykonos, such as the Adorno Beach Hotel & Suites, for accommodation in Ornos, beautiful restaurants, and beach bars of Mykonos.

Whatever you choose to do on your way to a Kite Centre, it will definitely be worth a try. Greece has a variety of different spots that are on offer the whole year, due to the weather conditions, making it one of the best kitesurfing destinations anywhere in the world. It is one of the most economical and up-and-coming sailing sports and at the same time the most convenient to learn as it combines aspects of paragliding, surfing, windsurfing, skateboarding, snowboarding and wakeboarding.
