Waterlusters! I organize a Destination Xploration kitesurf & sailing trip in Greece!
With a small fleet of spacious catamarans we will go after the windiest and most exclusive spots of the Ionion sea in Greece. In one week we’ll be sailing, riding and exploring the crystal clear waters of the Greek seas, where the crowd can’t reach!
This trip is beyond ‘just’ kiteboarding and sailing! It’s making the dream lifestyle reality. We will make this the best week of your life! Happiness is only real when shared. That’s why we go in a Flotilla, a little fleet. Still with comfort and enough space for everyone. So whether you come alone or with friends, we’ll be one bunch of like-minded waterlusters all after the same thrill! More fun, more spectacular, more friends.
This is the first Kiteboard Flotilla ever organized!
For this trip I join forces with Ionion Sails. Together with the owner Gabriel we make this happen!
Gabriel: If anyone knows the Ionion sea it’s Gabriel. He grew up sailing the Greek seas with his dad and hasn’t stopped sailing since. Gabriel is Greek, local and with his company Ionion Sails he has organized many flotillas before. Setting up the first kiteboard flotilla is a dream coming true!
Suzanne: Suzanne loves everything water. Sailng and kitesurfing is what drives her. She hasn’t been able to find the perfect boat/kitesurf/sailing/people combination so if it’s not there, why not create it? So Gabriel & Suzanne join forces and are determined to make this happen!

The Ionion Sea is the water between Italy and Greece. It has the steady reliable wind called the Maistro wind. The Greek Ionian islands haves some of the most beautiful beaches and clearest turquoise waters of the Mediterranean. Not just that, with ancient Greek sites, secluded anchorages, beautiful nature & wildlife, Greek tavernas, local markets and de-li-cious Mediterranean cuisine, the exploration potential is enourmous. Most of the yachts and crowds of the summer have left by September. The Greek vibe dominates towns and we have all the space to sail, ride and enjoy. With air temperatures being a pleasant 25-30 degrees you’ll be at the right spot(s), at the right time, with the right like-minded adventure seekers!
It’s easy to hop from island to island with our catamarans. We change spots almost everyday so we can get maximum diversity out of the 7 days at the Ionion sea. Every place is different and unique in it’s own way.
The Ionion sea has the most reliable wind of the Mediterranean sea. As a matter of fact, in September this region has the most trustworthy winds of Europe. This time of year we usually have calm mornings and wind as from noon, ranging 15-25 knots, blowing the rest of the day. We have crew born and raised here, knowing the spots, weather and possibilities so we change course if necessary to get the maximum out of the elements. The average air temperature is 26 degrees in September. The water is still tropical around 28 degrees so board shorts might just be enough!
The flexibility of living on board and the local knowledge of our captains allows us to adapt for the best possible itinerary based on the climate. There are dozens of spots suitable for kitesurfing and sailing in the Ionian sea. Lefkas Marina is our starting base. This places has all the facilities nearby including cafes, tavernas, bars restaurants, shops, supermarkets to start-off the adventure well-prepared and well relaxed. You might want to consider increasing your Greek adventure with a few extra days of Lefkas. We have made a navigation plan for maximum wind exposure combined with cool island towns to visit.
Imagine. Wake up with a fresh dip in the clear water, have a typical Greek breakfast in the morning sunshine, followed by one, two or tree flatwater kiteboard sessions, powered by the catch of the day for lunch, a sunset sail in the evening and a local beer and Mediterranean dish at the Greek Taverna at night. That’s just one example of a day of this once-in-a-lifetime holiday! Each day you’ll experience something new, whether it’s landing a new trick, discovering a new island or trying some of the best local Greek cuisine.
Not a kitesurfer? You don’t have to be a kitesurf fanatic to enjoy this island-hopping Flotilla. Both kiteboarders and non-kiteboarders are welcome to join. So bring your non – kiting friend and get him or her hooked! Sailing the Ionion sea is already an adventure in itself. You cannot get enough thrills on this trip. We give you plenty of options for action and water activity. So in case you want a break from kitesurfing, don’t kite at all or no wind. No worries! We have watertoys like a SUP board, snorkel gear, floating devices and a lifetime of local knowledge. On the Island you can go hiking or biking and discover the best of Greece. The adventure potential of this trip is huge. We have personally investigated the best island trips, tours, hikes, delicacies and can connect you to the best local tour provider. Or maybe you just want to chill and hang out with the rest of the group. You can sunbathe on the trampoline, plugin your music on the boats boxing, or have a beer at the local beach bar.
At the end of the day it’s nice to go ashore and visit the local town. In most destinations there is no lack of evening entertainment. We will be mostly moored or docked in the cool places where you can relax with a local beer on the beach, have a sunset dinner at a local taverna, or make a few dance moves at night.
For maximum space and exploration potential we have big 50 ft. Catamarans. With extra low keels our catamarans allow us to go to shallow, close to shore and inlets that most boats can’t. More space for us!
