Kite surfing in Elafonisi

   At Elafonisi beach the waves don’t get high, not even on very
windy days and that’s why it is possible to see kite surfers from
early morning.

   At that time there are no sunbathers and few who are walking
on the beach, they have plenty to see when the surfers make
high jumps in strong wind. Circumstances are also good for
practising because the water is only knee-deep and there are stones only on a couple of ranges of rocks.

Below the surfer there is only 0,5 meter deep water

These pictures were taken at the end of May 2008 when there were also some local people fishing with harpoons in the deeper sea.
