ARTEMIS, ATHENS, GREECE

View from the apartment.
Conditions are mainly side-shore north-northeast winds blow from force 4 to 8. Above force 5 the reef favours the development of waves that are suitable for jumps and riding. There are also places where the sea is flat and favours windsurfing & kitesurfing lessons, as well as freestyle manoeuvres. These winds are all year round, but they are particularly frequent during the June-August season.
Next to the apartment there is the surf club Nissakia (nissakia.gr) which offers windsurfing & kitesurfing lessons, while at 300 m there is another windsurfing/kitesurfing club, Athens Water Sports (www.athenswatersports.gr) offering courses and equipment hire for windsurfing, kiteboarding, sup, surfski and rowing. Both clubs also operate as all day café/ bar/restaurants. Also at a distance of only 150 m from the apartment there is a fish tavern which is famous for its well cooked fresh fish and its unique location by the sea.
Tenants of the apartment can use RRD freestyle-wave boards from 74 to 106 litre Severne Blade sails from 4.0 to 5.0 and RRD Evolution sails 5.7 & 6.3. Use of the equipment is at the sole responsibility of the user.
