KITESURF IN RHODES

Rhodes island is one of the best kitesurfing destinations of Europe. That’s why we opened our kite school here. The near constant wind, warm and safe waters, beautiful beaches and amazing climate of this island have made it famous for wind and water sports. These same things mean it’s the ideal place to learn how to kite surf.

Our kite station and the guest house share the same area, where the waters and meltemi winds await you just outside our front door in Tholaros beach located just 5 min away from airport, Theologos village and 20 min from Rhodes town.

Greece 😉

Just got back from Greece. It was one of the most amazing vacetions in my life. Friendly people, good surroundings, warm water, Good weather and a wonderful kite center. The Difference between the Wet Skillz kite center Rhodes and the other kite center on Rhodos is, if you just look 500 meter up at the beach, then when the wind turn over 10 knots, there will be a past 100 kiters on the water, but on wetskillz there will be maximum 10 kiters on the water, and it is not just as touristy, as the others are, and it makes it somewhat easier and safer to kite there.At Wet Skillz kite center Rhodes there are, place to sleep, car rant, Continuously open restaurant and bar, Barbecue on the beach in the evening, kite school, rascue boats and ATV, and last of all Friendly people on the beach :)Thanks a lot to Petros Margaritis and all the others from the Wet skillz team, to give us at good time in greece.Petros Margaritis I still expect a Lamborgihini next year ;)KiteCPH.dkGo2fitness HolbækHolbæk LiftWet Skillz kite center RhodesVejlebo & Winther Peugeot HolbækOzone KitesPerspektiva it

I can't recommend Wetskillz highly enough! A great location, private beach, new gear, and most importantly great instructors (thanks Petros and Dani!). I'm already planning my trip back to Rhodes.

I stayed with Wetskillz for a week mid Sept '17, renting and getting advice from all the cool people around. Goooood times! We had wind almost every day (thermal winda pick up around 15h), equipment was new, plenty of space o. The water and a boat for rescue by the shore. Downside are the pebbles and overflying airplanes, but nothing is perfect 😉 Petros, who founded the school, is a really cool guy and excellent kiter. Laid back, yet professional. His assistent Gasparous is great, while with limited English skills he is very helpful and saves everyone from the water (lost boards, crashed kites, struggling kiters). The team was completed by Tanya who also assisted and was most of the days acompannied by her husband Nico and their two kids Lucas and Tara. All of them lovely people. Together with the other kiters it felt like a big family... Hopefully I can come back next year! You can stay just by the beach at Annabelles apartments. Ask Petros.

WHY TO LEARN KITESURF – BENEFITS

Kitesurfing Tones the body by combining aerobics and resistance exercises. This combination is perfect for keeping a balance weight, toning your figure and gaining physical strength .

Increases coordination and concentration- by focusing on several tasks at once , Also riding on the board is great to improve your balance.

With any sport you eliminate stress but kitesurfing gives you the opportunity to fly and that’s a good feeling.
By boosting endorphins and reducing your stress levels, you also boost your immune system. increasing your reflexes and reaction capacity.

Like any sport in which you interact with the environment, kitesurfing fosters respect for the ocean, animals and nature in general, as well as makes you breathe fresh air away from the city smog.

When you practice kitesurfing you become part of a community and meet other people that enjoy the same activities, which helps you to interact with people with common interests and tastes, improves your relationships and your ability to communicate. And most important, you know a group of people whom you can talk freely about your passion with.

Finally, we can say that kitesurfing allows you to experience new sensations, like the feeling of flying, increasing your level of happiness.

In this passing life we are here to try to be as happy as we can. So … What are you waiting to learn kitesurfing? The more you practice the fitter and happier you will be.

SUMMER 2018 NEW SPECIAL COURSES FOR KIDS!!

No Excuses

You don’t need to be strong to learn kitesurfing.

Don’t hesitate if you think that you are too fat, too tall, too small, too old, or too young.

Kitesurfing is not dangerous. You only have to learn it the right way. Everybody needs a lesson.

Don’t expect to ride at the end of the first day, but with the right equipment and a productive lesson plan, few days of hard work will make it happen…

Kitesurfing is not expensive. After buying your equipment you don’t have any other expenses. Fortunately the wind and the ocean is for free…

WIND & WATER CONDITIONS

The wind blows from North-West and West mainly, that’s why we have the ideal side shore conditions for learning kitesurfing.

The water has a board short temperature. It’s flat when there is light wind and it can get choppy in strong conditions. In early and late season (April and October) waves are created when North wind is blowing.

You can see an analytic forecast report for the area by clicking here windguru.

THEOLOGOS KITE BEACH

More than 2km of uncrowded coast line to ride, warm and safe waters. The constant and reliable winds defined Theologos Kite Beach as the best kite spot in Rhodes.

BEACH RULES

  • Kite surfing is considered as an extreme sport and should be practiced with extreme caution and with a good knowledge of safety instructions.
  • All kiters are to log in at the beach office before going out for their own safety .
  • Internationally recognised upwind right of way rules apply, or common sense when this cannot be achieved.
  • Please respect the different zones allocated for different levels of kiters and swimmers.
  • Learning should always be done under the supervision of an Authorized/certified Instructor.
  • WetSkillz staff have the right to stop any reckless or dangerous kiter and/or banning him from the beach with or without prior warning, and in some extreme cases has the authority to confiscate the equipment with collaboration with GREEK PORT POLICE.
  • Kiting in offshore conditions is not adviceable and any kiter going out does so at his own responsibility.
  • Make sure that you have packed away your lines once you have landed your kite , and make sure that your board, equipment bag is all placed closely together on the beach and not scattered around.
  • Kiters are requested kindly to give priority to beach goers as they don’t have the full understanding of the dangers or hazards of sitting or swimming in the kite surfing zone.
  • Swimmers and other beach users must remain clear of the kites and kitesurf zone.
  • If you cannot maintain an upwind line (e.g. if you are learning, or if the wind conditions are not suitable for your equipment), then kiting in a direct on-shore wind may mean that you should not kite on that day. Wait until the wind direction is cross/on-shore, so that you can make progress away from the shore.
  • In low wind conditions, it may not be safe for you to launch your kite. If there is not enough wind to effectively control the kite and it is dropping from the sky onto the beach and people, then you should consider landing the kite until the wind is sufficient to fly an inflatable kite. As a rough example, the minimum wind conditions required to fly an inflatable kite are typically 8 knots, and 6 knots for a foil kite.
  • You must make every effort to progress away from the beach after launching. Only come back to the beach when you intend to land. When kiting, and especially jumping, please stay at least one and a half times the length of your lines away from the beach (for most of us, this will be at least 45m).
  • If your skill level, the wind conditions, or your equipment means you cannot comply with this rule, then you should not launch your kite.
  • Don’t drink and ride.
