FBC Kos Kite is situated directly on the beach at Horizon Beach Resort (Mastichari) on the north west coast of Kos, where beginner and intermediate kitesurfers can find ideal conditions to improve and enjoy the spot!
The wind at FBC Kos Kite is usually onshore/side-on shore from the right in the morning – the traditional Meltemi direction, and then often turns and blows more from the west in the afternoon, becoming side/side-onshore from the left. Ideal … and always perfectly safe.
The wind is lighter in the morning when the majority of beginner courses take place, making the spot also great for entry levels to practice. The wind gradually intensifies through the day and gives way with a bit more swell and small waves close to the shore in the afternoon. Whether you like to improve your basic skills, just cruise along on any type of board or practice the latest freestyle move, you have found the ideal playground !
The kiting area is large and safe, and there is dedicated baywatch and rescue service free of charge.
Such an all-round spot enables FBC Kos to run a comprehensive training program across all levels. Should you already be able to ride on your own (upwind), you will still get the chance to discover new practices and equipment such as directional boards and foil !
Progress is guaranteed!
