That afternoon we start exploring the island. As it’s only about a 15km circumference it didn’t take long! But there are many different and stunning beaches to see. The wind was light, and to be honest the drive over had taken it out of me. Knowing that the forecast looked good for the days ahead, I had a little nap on the beach! The next day I decided the first place I wanted to kite was in front of the church – you can’t miss it as it’s at the entrance of the port when you come in on the ferry. We got some shots, and piqued the interest of the locals as well… I guess I was the topic of the day on the island! I then scored another sunset foiling session at perhaps the most beautiful beach of the island with crystal clear waters.
It was soon time to head back to Drepano and a prime looking forecast… pedal to the metal, though with a quick tourism stop first in Monemvasia, a fort town with a rich history, well worth a visit if ever you are in Greece. When we arrived in Drepano we had a massive lunch at our favorite place, Distinto, the place where we feast, but we had to be quick as the wind was filling in. After some fun days discovering the most stunning places I have seen, I was back at Drepano’s sand spit and it was time to get back into freestyle mode. I guess I know why I keep coming back to this spot – it always delivers and it feels like home… ■
