GONE SURFING CRETE
KOUREMENOS BEACH, CRETE, GREECE

THE LOW DOWN: 

East Crete is known for its hospitality, the amazing gorges and waterfalls, the secluded beaches, 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 and funnelling effects. People ask us when the wind starts and when it ends, in Kouremenos the wind is here ALL day, even at night!

CONDITIONS AND WHEN TO GO: 

ALL day wind; the ‘Meltemi’ is accelerated inside the bay, with flat water for 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.

LOCAL SPOT: 

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.

ABOUT THE CENTRE: 

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.

WHERE TO STAY: 

There is a big variety to choose from around the area of Kouremenos and the village of Palekastro. Please visit the following link where all the accommodation options are listed: www.gonesurfing.gr/en/accommodation.
