Spot Infos

Our Windsurf/Kitecentre is situated at the north end of Sigri bay. The wind blows cross-off shore and this is the reason why the water is perfectly flat in front of the centre!

After about 30-40 metres you are in the freestyle corner. There the wind is always a little bit stronger but the water is still perfectly flat, which helps every surfer to improve his/her windsurf level and it is great for learning any kind of new manoeuvre!

Further outside the wind comes directly from the open sea (through the channel).This is the reason why you have a great swell there. Across the bay is the island Nissiopi, which offers protection from the Agean sea. So, if there are any problems on the water, there is no risk of drifting. The spot at the center is also perfect for beginners because the bay is very secure.

Freestyle corner

The freestyle corner makes our spot even more special! It is the perfect place to practise new moves! The wind gets stronger there and due to the flatwater, this place is ideal for learning any new manoeuvre and just a great area for all freestylers.

Channel

For those into wave sailing there is also the option of sailing up into the channel, between Nissiopi and Sigri! If the wind is strong enough you can find some nice waves there! You can surf into the channel directly from the windsurf centre. But it's more for advanced surfers because you have to tack into the channel.

Wind (Meltemi)

In the north east of the Agean Sea,there the Meltemi blows nearly every day (in the summer months). The wind comes from the Black Sea and is accelerated by a thermal effect and the mountains around Sigri. Sigri is directly situated in the wind zone and both winds (North and South) blow through the village – this is why Sigri has such a good wind statistic and is a great spot the whole year round!

Wind Statistic

Our spot works well in every wind direction. The main direction is North in summer and South in winter. The statistics on the right is from "Findfinder", it shows how many days we have wind here in Sigri. The wind strength is not the same like we have here in the bay, because the wind comes through the two islands and gets stronger on the open sea.(the messure boy is outside of the bay)The best forecasts for Sigri are:
