Windsurfing needs mainly water and constant wind conditions. Antiparos has both!
One of the best spots of the Cyclades for the sport is actually the channel between Paros and our beautiful island. This is what every Greek windsurfer knows!
But Antiparos has much more to offer for those who enjoy the feeling of being pushed by the wind on crystal blue waters.
Since summer 2013, the top-level windsurfer Alex Tetsis opened Onboard, a windsurf school in Glyfa beach, Antiparos.
Onboard Windsurfschool is a place to meet other windsurfers, to talk about the sport, to rent or buy a board, a rig for special conditions and of course, learn everything about windsurf, from beginner lessons to advanced freestyle tricks.
“Glyfa, Antiparos is one of the best spots in Greece for long rides, with relative flat water, excellent for slalom and for improving freestyle skills”, describes Alex.
The club offers no facilities but a very friendly ambience and lots of shade by the native trees around it.
Less than 300 meters from Onboard windsurfschool there is the Big Blue restaurant and café with enough food and drinks to help you before and after your windsurf sessions.
During the summer, the wind blows quite constantly, mainly with north-south direction and strength from 10 to 40 knots. In winter time, south and north winds relay.
Apart from Glyfa Beach, you will find many other windsurf spots in Antiparos and you can start from almost every Antiparos beach.
The Onboard Windsurfschool is open only during the summer. Check this blog for updates.
