From there, its on to the Strait of Bonifacio with the Lavezzi and Cavall Islands and even more exclusive kiting locations with the kind of azure blue Mediterranean waters that dreams are made of.

Conditions

The mistral trades blow from the north west between 15 and 35 knots and when they arent on youll get regular big kite / foiling weather in the thermal easterlies which average between 12 and 20 knots. Water temperatures are pleasant, and you wont need thicker than a 3/4mm suit.

GREECE

30 JUNE – 10 JULY – SPECIAL PRICE 15% OFF

 

 

On the Cyclades cruise you’ll meet the Action Cruise team in Paros in Greece before setting sail for ten days through yet more dreamy blue Mediterranean waters, navigating around just some of the 220 islands that make up the island chain. There are countless flat water spots, many of them on secluded islands that can only be reached by boat and you’re more or less guaranteed to have the majority of them entirely to yourself! The islands of Paros, Antiparos, Mykonos, Rinia, Blue Lagoon, Syros and Kofounissi are all on the hit list with plenty of Meltemi wind to expect.

After a full day of kiting, in the evenings you can explore and experience the classic blue and white villages that dot each island and enjoy the amazing sunsets and excellent food thats served in the local tavernas.

Conditions

In summer, the Meltemi trades are strong and reliable, providing endless days of kitesurfing between the islands. The Meltemi blows from north between 15 and 30 knots but even when Meltemi doesnt come in theres usually at least 12-15 knots for foiling or freeriding on bigger kites.

The water is warm, but a 3/2 wetsuit or at least a decent quality shortie is worth having to keep the windchill off when the Meltemi really blows through.

The boat

The catamaran is equipped with a water maker, auxiliary generator, AC, foil board, SUPS and a dinghy from which the crew provide safety cover when youre out on the water (you can even do a bit of wakeboarding off the back of it!)

Each cruise takes place with a skipper, private kite instructor and a chef wholl keep you fuelled up with full board service available.

As with the cruises around Sardinia, theres equipment for hire on board should you need it.

Taking in some of the Caribbeans most iconic kite spots, including the legendary Union Island, on the Grenadines cruise you’ll stay in a double room on the Action Cruises modern, tricked-out catamaran for ten days.

The Action Cruise - Grenadines

Conditions

The best months for kiting are when the trade winds blow between December and June when its windy 90% of the time, averaging 15 to 22 knots. The average wind speed drops to 12 to 18 knots from July to August and its slightly less consistent with wind on 50 to 60% of days. From then until Christmas the wind gets lighter and less frequent, before building up again up towards the start of the high season in January. You wont need a wetsuit, just sunscreen and swimwear!
