SURFING


Windsurf and Kitesurf in Drepano, Achaia

Cape Drepano, just 15 km from Patras, is a paradise for all those involved with windsurf and kitesurf. The sea surrounds a narrow band of land that penetrates like a wedge into the water with an impressive lighthouse on it and is filled with dozens of colourful sails and boats during winter or summer.

The area is easily accessible by car up to the coast, relieving from the burden of carrying the equipment.

The area of Drepano is characterized by winds of ideal intensity and direction, most days of the year, something that makes Drepano perhaps the best spot to kitesurf, windsurf and SUP.

It is noteworthy that it is possible to have a windless sea at a two kilometre’s distance from the Cape, while simultaneously at Cape Drepano winds blow with a 4 -5 Beaufort intensity. Thus, it is an ideal location both for beginners and experienced surfers.   

Over the last few years a school operates here, named No Work Active Generation Kiteschool (NWAG).

It is a team of trainers consisting of highly trained athletes, with love for the sport, respect for the student and transmissibility.

The school conducts its courses with maximum safety, proving students with all the necessary safety equipment (life jackets, helmets, etc) as well as boats for continuous monitoring.

No Work team, having the exclusive distribution of products manufactured by Slingshot, the leading company in the field, uses the most up to date equipment.
