FBC Kos is big on kitesurfing, whether you wish to learn and improve, prefer riding on your own or are one of the top riders in the world who likes to jump high and trick even harder !
Please be advised that kitesurfing lessons are held 1km upwind of the center, at a dedicated kitesurfing spot. Free transfers are offered to and from the kite spot upon request and at any time in working hours for those guests with lessons and kite storage.
The spot is ideal for kitesurfing, with a side-onshore and a side-side offshore riding area thanks to the shape of the coastline. It is also free of windsurfers.
From afar you can easily identify this spot by a small white lighthouse. The beach is mainly made up of pebbles mixed with sand. Downwind of the lighthouse there is a nice and clean area for teaching and launching/landing kites. The beach slopes away quite quickly (5m), with the first 100m flat water followed by a nice progressive swell. The wind comes mainly side-off from the left which is why upwind body dragging is great (and necessary) to practice on this spot. The wind mostly blows around 15-23 knots.
Such an all-round spot enables FBC Kos to run a comprehensive training program across all levels, both for windsurfing and kitesurfing. Progress is guaranteed! On the dedicated kite spot, you can also choose between open-sea conditions or a sheltered flat water area, both allowing all your madness to express itself and push yourself on the water like never before. We naturally run very popular beginners kitesurfing course, from the beach or from the boat following on your progress. The more advanced kiters and the real experts can also learn all the latest maneuvers from our dedicated and addicted team of friendly instructors, don’t be afraid to challenge them about the sickest combo and get THE tip that will turn frustration (and sometimes unnecessary physical pain) into control, understanding and total joy ! The lesson price includes all the equipment: the kites, the boards, the body protection and the safety equipment, as well as transfers to the spot and rescues. The lessons last two hours with the emphasis on water time. Having fun, progression and safety are our priority!
