windsurfing in Kouremenos CreteThe surf centre in Kouremenos - Palekastro has a unique cosy atmosphere and is run efficiently, with the best JP and NP equipment from 2012. Along with the outstanding wind statistics, it is one of the best centre’s in southern Europe. It lies in the middle of a beautiful sandy bay, lined with trees.

Even in the high season the waters are un-crowded, as it is set away from mass tourism. Non-surfers equally enjoy the friendly atmosphere and the wind-protected and tree shaded area around the station. Naturally we are also offering; electricity, water supply, beach shower, sun beds, volleyball, drinks, evening entertainment.

Safety on the water
The bay is enclosed; therefore there is no chance of you drifting off shore. However guests are still advised not to surf out further than 1.0 km. We pride ourselves on our safety system and there is always a member of the crew on Baywatch duty. A powerful motorboat and Jet Ski are available, in the case of an emergency.

The people at the serf station can communicate in English, French, Italian, Spanish and German.

Gone Winsurfing in Kouremenos http://eastcrete-holidays.gr/en/activities/windsurfing/144-gonewinsurfing-kouremenos http://eastcrete-holidays.gr/en/activities/windsurfing/144-gonewinsurfing-kouremenos

Gone windsurfing in Kouremenos CreteThe Gone Surfing Center is equipped with both the experience and knowledge to provide quality training and services. We are passionate about windsurfing and watersports, we love being in the water and anything to do with the sea. Our goal is to spread the infectious love for surfing, it doesn't matter if it is your first time uphauling a sail, or if you plan to learn a forward loop, we aim to make your surfing dreams materialize.

The water in front of the Gone Surfing center is usually flat, however, when you sail further out there is big chop for bump and jump. The winds are mostly in northerly directions and are sideshore. The Meltemi wind is accelerated by the thermal effect of the hot summer which increases it by 2 Beaufort. The Meltemi winds of North Crete have also made this the ideal location for the biggest windmill parks in Greece. The center is also surrounded by trees providing day-round shade for those wanting to take a well-earned nap on the beach.

There are several other windsurf spots near Kouremenos that you can explore. 'Tenta' is the most renowned for Freestyle windsurfing because it is exposed to the North winds. 'Tenta' provides both a wavy area and a flat one. 'Faneromeni' is a more extreme spot and only appeals to the daredevils, 'Faneromeni' has world class waves.
