The Greek islands offer beautiful scenery and sparkling waters. But they are also great for wingsurfing. With winds favourable for training and relatively unpopulated waters, these islands offer perfect locations. And that’s how the Theologos spot defines itself as well. Based in Rhodes, Greece, this spot is absolutely ideal for practice. The winds are gentle, but with enough lift along the length to learn the tricks. In the water, the slope is gentle, which is useful for those new to the sport to start practising quietly. It is also worth noting that the beach is particularly long and offers a large enough water surface to be exploited.

It is in the heart of Tuscany, finally only a few dozen kilometres from France, that we have selected this second spot.

A minimum of training is still required before going there, as you will be surrounded by a large number of fellow sportsmen.
