FBC KOS – BIG BLUE KITESURFING
The windsurfing center is still located directly on the beach in front of the Natura Park Village (on the north east coast of Kos Island). The center is large and well stocked with Fanatic Boards and North Sails 2013/2014. All the sails will be rigged and expertly trimmed by Yiannis who is more than happy to give you advice and help you to get the best from the spot in all conditions! The boards are pre-bookable, but there is always the opportunity to exchange your board for another depending upon the prevailing conditions. Anna and Angelliki are the 2 lovely ladies on reception who are looking forward to taking care of you and making sure you have the ideal board! Windsurfing lessons for all levels and all ages will of course be on offer, with perfect wind for beginners in the morning, picking up in the early afternoon and steadily increasing ensuring everybody improves! The spot is for windsurfers only. The center ha s a really friendly and chilled atmosphere, with singles, couples and families all hanging out together watching the action on the water and sharing their experiences.
NEW FOR 2014! This year a brand new dedicated kitesurfing center will be situated on the beach in front of the 4* Kipriotis Village a little upwind of the windsurf spot. The center will be managed by Dimitri and his team of IKO qualified instructors, offering rental and lessons. Dimitri joined the kitesurfing team last season and he loved it … and we loved him! He is a super motivated and very experienced kitesurfing instructor who gives 100% all of the time! The kitesurfing center will be stocked with NKB kites and boards (2013/2014) and will be a great new meeting point for kitesurfers on this stretch of beach. Lessons will be available for all levels in various languages including English, German, Italian and Russian. The spot is for kiters only. There are regular transfers from the windsurf center to the kite spot
FBC Kos is situated on the north east coast of the island, and this area is really well known for windsurfing and kitesurfing thanks to the regular wind throughout the summer season. This is the only spot with a center on Kos where the wind blows side shore (from the left), other spots having either offshore or onshore wind conditions. On top of this, the proximity to Turkey and shape of the coast creates a funnel effect on the wind as it is squeezed between the two coastlines, giving a stronger localized wind effect compared to other spots. The kitesurfing spot and the windsurfing spot share the same conditions, with lighter wind in the morning for all the beginner lessons, and gradually picking up in the afternoon to satisfy the intermediate and advanced boarders.
NEW FOR 2014! SHUTTLE BUS – This year FBC Kos will offer a FREE regular shuttle service between all the accommodation on offer and the center! The shuttle service can be arranged at the center and will run 3 times per day. If you would rather make your own way there is a regular bus service running between the center, the town, and the accommodation every 15 minutes. Cycle lanes also run along the whole strip so it’s really safe and convenient to get around with all types of bicycles available. Taxis are also available. Walking is another option … with the majority of accommodation all within about 2km of the center and the town is 6km from the center. You will find that everything is within easy reach!
THE BIG BLUE SURF SHOP
Spiros and his lovely wife Dora also have a fully stocked surf shop in Kos Town supplying all your needs at reasonable prices. The shop is fully stocked with great brands including ION, NKB, Quicksilver, Roxy, Animal, Sanuk and New Balance … to name just a few! There is a 10% discount at the shop for all guests of FBC Kos
