In the recent years, Croatia became a recognizable destination for kitesurfers. A relatively new discipline, it involves coupling a regular floating board with a specially designed kite. The surfers use the power of wind to propel themselves on the water surface at high speeds, occasionally performing impressive athletic in-air stunts.
The winds on Adriatic Coast are rather perfect for this adrenaline-filled enjoyment. Strong and powerful, yet rarely to the point of disrupting the surfer’s control, they can be just the thing for dedicated lovers of naval excitement.
If you are inexperienced in this field, have no fear. During the summer season, a lot of tourist agencies are organizing kitesurfing schools and lectures. Guided by professionals, you will literally learn to hold the ropes quickly, and find your surfing spot beneath the friendly (and sometimes windy) skies.
