GONE SURFING CRETE
KOUREMENOS BEACH, CRETE, GREECE
East Crete is known for its hospitality, amazing gorges and waterfalls, secluded beaches that are unspoiled from mass tourism, and now for the guaranteed wind in Kouremenos! A well-kept secret among French, Austrian and some passionate British windsurfers who enjoy our great conditions. The wind in Kouremenos is increased due to local thermal funnelling effects. People ask when the wind starts and when it ends, in Kouremenos winds are all day, even all night!
ALL day wind; the ‘Meltemi’ is accelerated inside the bay, with flat water to bump and jump. Cross-off wind starts in the morning and keeps blowing through the night. The season starts early in May and stays warm and windy until the end of October.
Kouremenos is the safest bet in Crete because of its consistency due to the ‘funnel effect’ and its intensity, the wind never takes a break giving beginners to advanced sailors a great time. Families will appreciate the safety of the beach and the surrounding area.
The Gone Surfing Crete centre is the delicatessen of surf stations; offering high-end equipment with the latest Fanatic boards and North Sails. The team is always available with the best advice and supreme service and is famous for its teaching capabilities.
There is a big variety to choose from around the area of Kouremenos and the village of Palekastro. All the accommodation options are listed at www.gonesurfing.gr/en/accommodation
