Windsurfing in Lefkada

The Ionian Sea during the summer months is "cooled" by the thermal winds (mistral). These winds together with the morphology of the area are the cause for great statistics of wind that allow surfers to 'take off' with new tricks and maneuvers.

Every afternoon, at about the same time, in these two beaches, the thermal wind comes and steadily is increased until late afternoon. At Vassiliki this phenomenon is impressive.

In a secluded bay, which in the morning is ideal for starters since there are no waves and the sea is quite shallow, the wind direction, that many sports fans call it «Eric or phenomenon", is changing and the quite sea becomes rough giving to everyone the cue to begin their sport.
The statistics of the beach is impressive:
  • May - 15 days of the month
  • June - 20 days of the month
  • July - 25 days of the month
  • August - 20 days of the month
  • September-15 days of the month
The power of wind is about 4 to 5 bft. up to 6-7 and in good days 8 bft. Vassiliki is a surfing place ideal for those who want to practice in slalom and freestyle with side shore conditions. The existence of many windsurfing schools and specialist sports shops make things easy for those who want to try and evolve in the sport..
