Come Kite with us

KiteBoardingNaxos by Thalasea, IKO affiliated since 2004, is Naxos’ first Kite Center and offers the best location right in the center of the Mikri Vigla kite beach.

All of our packages, from Beginner to Advanced, as well as our Refresher, are based on the official International Kiteboarding Organization (IKO) training program and are offered in German, French, English, Italian, Greek and more.

One of our qualified IKO certified instructors will guide you through a safe and fun session that is tailored to your individual needs and adapts to your personal progression speed.

Using radio assistance your IKO instructor will be able to give you the right feedback at the right time, allowing you to correct your mistakes instantly and thus advance in the most efficient way possible.

To ensure the best quality for your kite sessions we supply you with the latest and safest kiteboarding gear from two of the leading brands (Cabrinha and North) and, of course, all the rest of the necessary equipment (e.g. wetsuit, harness, helmet, impact vest, etc.)

Private sessions are the fastest way to progress, since they allow you to progress at your own pace without interruptions. You will benefit from your instructor’s undivided attention, be able to maintain your individual rhythm and reach your goals sooner than you imagined, giving you a great feeling of success.

Semi-private sessions* are suitable for kiters of similar level and body weight (max.2 persons), except for the first session of theory and piloting the kite, which can be carried out regardless of your weight (up to 4 persons).

Furthermore semi-private sessions are a fun activity to try with a friend or family member. You will be sharing the kite with your partner which allows you time to rest in between turns, help each other and compare your experiences.

Any groups must already be formed at the time of booking. Individual person pre-bookings for group lessons are not possible.

For independent riders who would like to get an evaluation of their riding skills and be able to show proof of their level at any IKO affiliated kite school around the world, we offer the possibility of an IKO assessment session. To be certified as an independent rider some of the required skills are: Riding upwind in all conditions, know the ROW rules, launching and landing, safe handling of the kite on the beach, body-drag upwind to retrieve your board. You will receive an IKO Kiteboarder Card (vCard) at the completion of the session.
