Lemnos is a Greek island in the Aegean sea renowned for its postcard-worthy beaches, crystal-clear waters and ancient archaeological sites. Served by an international airport, the island is most well-known for its 3km beach at Keros Bay that boasts to be one of the world's top kite and windsurf destinations due to its warm, waist-deep water and its combination of flat water, small chop and a wave spots - suitable for beginners and pros alike. It's hidden shallow beaches are free from water traffic - making it one of the safest locations to learn in Europe.
Catering to total beginners and experienced kiters alike, kitesurfing lessons on Keros Beach range from 1-10 hours. Offering introductions to the sport alongside island downwinder excursions to secret beaches, each lesson plan is dependant on previous experience - with some of the IKO Level courses requiring a minimum skill/technical level to participate. Working with a team of expert instructors, lessons are conducted in one of three locations along a 3km stretch of beach - offering shallow water for beginners, fun chop for intermediates and a wave section with kickers for air tricks! Using the highest industry standard equipment, kiters can also try their hand at Hydrofoil, or just demo equipment during the lesson. The kite centre has more than 70 brand new 2018 RRD kites and 40 RRD boards. With sizes from 4m up to 15m, twin tip boards, surfboards, foil boards, harnesses, and wetsuits they've got you covered in any condition.
Keros Bay has three distinctive sections for kiters. Beginners tend to use the flat, shallow 1ft water upwind from the school. The central section consists of a flat spot with tiny chop (10-20cm). The chop increases as you go downwind, providing you with some nice kickers which give you nice pop in order to practice jump tricks or freestyle tricks. The South part of the bay offers you a super safe mini-wave spot. The waves are relatively small, but with a nice distance between them, and a perfect cross-shore wind direction. The waves can get big on strong wind days.
