Where to find reliable wind, blue skies and nice beaches: Lefkada, Greece

Last year we got a call from an old friend, Rob Claisse, who created Progression and was fundamental to what now we consider the gold standard of kitesurf video tuition. He was looking for a spot that would offer reliable wind, blue skies, nice beaches and ideally something not too far from the UK. Not long after he arrived with a ton of equipment and pro riders Danny Morrice and Oli Sweeney, riding every day on their 2 weeks and getting loads of the filming done. Read about their trip on the Progression Blog and Rob is now in the finishing phase of editing the new videos for the Progression app so be sure to check it out too.

Gökova – Training ground of the Professional Kitesurfers

Its really not a secret anymore that Gokova is a favourite training ground for the professional kitesurfers. After having Aaron Hadlow, Lewis Crathern, Martin Hogg, Luke Whiteside, Holly Kennedy, Dan Sweeney, Sam Light and many more in our Always Windy top spot, Wainman Kiteboarding sponsored Hannah Whiteley  has also visited our awesome flat water spot. Based in Stockport, Cheshire, the 21 year old is currently ranked 13th in the PKRA and battling it out in Dakhla, Morocco but we are confident that she will be rising in the rankings in no time.
