Happy July! Meltemi is highly activated over Paroskite! Time for lessons and fun!
Dear all Kiters-to-be,
First of all, thanks for visiting us and paroskite.com. Lemme guess, what are you looking for?… Kite lessons and fun? Oh yesss!!!We surely know it! 😎
I will introduce a little about the excitement you are going to catch obsession with, Kiteboarding/Kitesurfing. I want you to have the first sight of your new exploration. Then, I will tell you about our loving Meltemi: happiness for many sailing sport passions and Kiteboarding/Kitesurfing.😍
Kiteboarding/Kitesurfing is a new action sport that merges several aspects of wakeboarding, snowboarding, windsurfing, surfing, paragliding, skateboarding and sailing into one (if you are practicing or did any of above, you already earn a good support: muscle memories). Kiteboarding/Kitesurfing allows controlling ability on the kite power; being pulled across the water, land and snow will enjoy you. (Really! When you achieve till experienced level, kite and board are your toys to ride on any kind of ground).
There are different styles such as freestyle, free ride, wave-riding, wake style, jumping/air style, wake skate, course racing and park riding.
With the development of Kiteboarding/Kitesurfing and the aim of motivating the adoption, equipments became more affordable (woohoo 😆)…and very trendy 👍.
In addition, the big plus is its convenience for transportation and storage. Because, kites are foldable and boards are smaller than most of surf board and puddle boards. By comparing to other sailing sports, Kiteboarding/Kitesurfing is so much more inexpensive and convenient. Wind energy is being harvested from a much larger atmosphere volume of the kite, comparing to sail size. Amazing right?!
Powered by Meltemi!
Every kite spot around the Earth offers different type of air circulation for wind power. In Paros and at our ParosKite spot, it is powered by Meltemi. In fact, Meltemi is the happiness for many sailing sport enthusiasts. Meltemi blows through out summer season. Its maximum activity is during July and August (peak season @paroskite now). Its strongest action is during afternoon and often calm down at night. Yet, sometimes it may last for days without a break. Meltemi is strong northern wind, with clear weather! In addition, this northern wind tempers the fierce summer heat at Paroskite.
Paroskite = Parosdise!
Meltemi is one of the natural factors that made us Parosdise. Because the spot is not only a perfect place for experienced kiters, but also for beginners (Level1), intermediate and independent kiters (Level2-Level3). On the other hand, the beach is long and not steep (at all!!); water level is quite shallow. Thus, students will learn with perfect wind conditions (believe me Meltemi is more than enough for you to learn). You will feel the wind power and control the kite while being safe either on the beach or in the water.
With Meltemi at Paroskite, at the first step, you will learn identifying the wind direction and recognising the wind window.
There are much more knowledge and interesting things about Kiteboarding/Kitesurfing and ParosKite to explore. I will continue in the coming articles.
