Where to this summer - not Greece

Postby Aiolos69 » Wed Jun 08, 2011 10:28 am

Where to this summer?? Don not want to risk Greece with the national kite ban (I no like Paros - too crowded), political unrest and strikes. Last summer my flight canceled because of strike. My vacation time too valuable.

Suggestions close to Europe?

Yo Aiolos69...! its a shame you have the name of the god of wind... you dont deserve it, possibly because you dont know how to kitesurf and you need 10km beach to feel safe...LOL

man you are 'away with the fairies...'

WAKE UP pretty Suzi!! the law is paused and it will be changed this week... it was just one paragraph mistake!

Kitesurf is officially legal more than ever before...!!!

no one listen to this dump ass...

Wow….I just found a job posting that suits you perfectly

Business Development Manager in Greek National Tourist Organization

Truly, not even a competitor in the tourism market could come up with such a ridicules and inappropriate post.

Guys, the sky is still there, it is still blue and it won’t fall in our heads…..don’t spread around whatever comes in your turbulent minds…thing the whole banning issue has been sorted out!!!

There are no riots in Greece, just some gatherings of peaceful people, surely no strikes and no flight cancellations as last year…..needless to mention that because of the crisis our services/products are much cheaper to end users compared to other European or Exotic destinations

Keep calm….njoy riding

PAROSKITE what was your role in the law?

How many strikes Greece has already this year?

Protests get bigger and bigger. Sorry, but vacation time for me very valuable. I'll go some place with less risks this year.

Toby thanks for the suggestions. Sardinia, Zansibar, Mauritius sound delicious.

Less people in Paros the better for us. More space to jump :lol:
Come on guys be serious. Paros is not only Greece. You have so many islands to go and kiting then Paros such as Naxos, Rhodos, Mykonos, Andros, Ios, Kea, and so on.
Thank God I have a house in Paros. Also in Paros you have few places you can go and kite in order to stay away from the crowds.

Aris did a good job on the SKAI tv interview. Bravo koukle. Ta leme stin Paro.


P.S. Will be in Athens for a big event Coca Cola is putting in Marathons at Shcinias beach called "To Karavi" on July 24th. Will be doing some demos also. Then from August 5th to 14th will be in Paros for more demos and also if you are interested in testing the 2012 kites.

I think it is very important to solve the situation in Greece, with the help from all of us, so postings like this are not needed any more.

This is also in the interest of everyone involved. The initial poster has a point, and many international kite tourists will think like this.
So no need to attack this poster, but to lift this ban ASAP. Only when we all cooperate, this will work.

Until then, postings like this will keep popping up and also not nice comments.

Let's solve it !!!

PS: Dimitri: what is the TV report about?
