WELCOME TO CAPE DREPANO.
Greece is one of the best destinations in the world for watersports. A great place for kiteboarding,windsurfing and SUP. Cape Drepano is the place to be!!
Surrounded by water, Greece offers amazing watersport experiences guided by wind and salt. Kitesurfing (also known as kiteboarding) became very popular as it is easy to learn and the wind conditions in the country are just spectacular.
“Cape Drepano Kitecenter” is unique amongst the rest kitesurfing spots in Greece, since it offers some of the best conditions in the whole country and maybe in the whole of Europe. The consistent and high capacity wind – almost every day – all year around, combined with butter flat terrain make this spot one of a kind.
From the early years of kitesurfing, Cape Drepano riders were some of the first who promoted the progression and recognition of Kitesurfing and Windsurfing in Greece. Our passion and joy for watersports has driven us to be one of the leading watersports centers in Greece. We organize the biggest events and kitesurfing festivals and contests every year.
On our website, you can find everything you need to know about the exciting sports of kitesurfing, windsurfing and sup.
We offer Kitesurfing, Windsurfing and SUP services and gear for rental for all possible disciplines. Depending on your riding level or style, you may choose your equipment accordingly. We also offer qualified and experienced personnel for beginners and advanced riders and for those who want to ride a foil board.
