Does anybody knows what (if any) is the difference in the winds between Paros and Naxos during the beginning of June? :think:

Any advise will be apreciated

Abel hi,

Its exactly the same fella. There is the venturi effect between the 2 islands
and naxos makes the most of this as the paros shore is not in the venturi side.

Wind in mikri is notably stronger. whern 3 bft in other shores, mikri has 5.

never been to paros so maybe another can comment ?

In Paros they claim that they have the same effect between Paros and Antiparos.
It seems that nobody compared the two spots.

See ya in a couple of weeks in Naxos :hangloose:

Guys I'm trying to figure out where my summer kite trip will be, Cyclades are on the agenda because of wind and party.

But - I have been to Mykonos like 10 times when I was a kid for windsurfing, and I remember nukin winds July/August. Biggest sail was 5.0, and most of the time I was using a 4.0 or 4.5. That means the small stuff for kiting, like a 9.0 and less frequently 11.5.

That was Mykonos, I remember how we used to say there was always more wind in Mykonos than Paros.

So, how is Paros in July/August for kiting, is it balls-to-the wall wind the whole time or more moderate? Gusty or not?

And the partying...good I assume?

Steve
