It is an exciting sport for everyone, regardless of age or sex. A few hours in the water are enough to initiate you into the basics: standing up and turning. The basic requirement is to be able to swim.
The steady northern winds, their duration, the enclosed safe sea between the western coast of S. Evia and the islands of Petalioi as well as the strong currents in the narrow strait make the area a perfect wind surfing destination. It is often mentioned by European wind-surfing magazines and organisations.
