Tinos Surf Lessons

the beach

Kolibithra bay is on the north shore of the island of Tinos, facing the north Aegean sea, home of the infamous local "meltemi", a strong north wind that blows mainly during the summer months. When the meltemi wind blows at a speed of more than 6 on the Beaufort scale - which sometimes can be for most of July and August - then a great left wave (and sometimes a smaller right) can be ridden at Kolibithra. One of the great things about surfing at Kolibithra is the ease of access to the line up (via a natural current that takes you there in a minute), the lack of any danger (no sharks, sandy bottom), and the proximity to cheap accomodation and great food, found just on the other side of the bay. All the above make it for a great spot not just for seasoned surfers, but beginners alike.
