Makris Gialos , more commonly known as “Chicken bay “ is a shallow extremely sheltered bay offering the perfect spot for beginners and also the flat waters that the freestylers love.
Balia or “Gun Bay” is the largest bay which develops a wind-wave of up to one meter which offers great bump and jump conditions and in general is a superb slalom and free-ride area.
Batha, which is now known on an international scale as “Devil's Bay”, is the bay with the strongest wind but also combines this with flat water and has therefore become the site of four speed-surfing World Championships. This bay is also great for freestyle and slalom too.
Only a few kilometers away from the above three interlinked bays , lies the “wave-spot” which as its name suggests, develops quite large wind-waves and therefore offers ideal conditions for jumping and for practicing those loops.Enjoy windsurfing in Karpathos and combine it with your stay in Afiartis village at Punta Mare.
