Flisvos Kite Center Naxos I had a very good time at Flisvos Kite Center. Thomas is very competent, experienced and very likeable as a kite instructor. I would do a course at Flisvos Kite Center again and can only recommend it to everyone.

Highly Recommended! Flisvos Kitecentre Kitesurf School was all around great. My girlfriend and are had never tried the sport before but by the end of day 3 we were both out on the water with our boards. The staff and teachers were professional and well trained. I would highly recommend this school for anyone wishing to get into the sport or advance their skills.

Nice spot and great kite school During summer you’re almost sure to have wind every day on this spot, a nice bay on a 15-20 n in minute ride from Naxos city. During my first lesson the wind gusts would be up to 35 knots, but since the school carries loads of (brand new!) kites from each size this posed no problem at all. Also the variety of languages is impressive, next to obviously Greek, I overheard Italian, German, Dutch and ofcourse English. The great Cappuccinos in the adjoining bar are a treat after a session.

Mikro Gali The bay where instructions takes place has many spots with strong wind gusts. The gusts are severe in as much as they exacerbate conditions for learning. The school should carefully plan instruction based on a weather report and allow more time instead forcing student to do all preparatory work plus struggle with the weather conditions. On Paros I was able to progress much more considering mild weather conditions

Thanks to Tom for being a patient and real good instructor, always making sure to be safe and really learning to be independent. Thanks to Michele running the administration so smoothly and always being open for some extra advice. Nice place, nice people, great kiting.
