Questions about Greece - Rhodes - Kalavarda

Postby Chris30 » Fri May 24, 2019 7:50 pm

Hi!

I will be travelling to Kalavarda for about 2,5 weeks from end of August to September (plan rigtht now is 24.8. - 10.9.) this year. I have a few questions about spot - village - region. Hopefully some of you know something about Kalavarda to help...
- First: is there an ATM in Kalavarda?
- how big is the shallow water area? In the net you can find different writings about that (from 5 - 30+ meters)
- I think boardshorts and lycra is enough!? Or should I take a shorty with me?
- what are the conditions in that time of year? I mean real experiences not statistics based on forecast…
I have Flysurfer Speed 4 in 10 & 18 sqm and Spleene Rip39 & Session45 boards. Shall I leave anything of that at home? Luggage is only a problem in handling travel to/from airport by train.
- is it usually a bit more or less than wind forecast? Or very reliable like forecast?
- is the water usually flat, very choppy, anything between?

Only for people been there this year… how are the prices for food and drinks in Rhodes?

Anything else?

Thx a lot in advance
Chris

Hi Chris,
I 've been to Rhodes but not to Kalavarda.

If you check for ATMs online, you'll see that there are a few nearby (<5klm away) - http://tiny.cc/qz1w7y

End of August it will be nice and hot, I would go for the shortie just to be nicely warm though ;)
As for the wind, you 'll definitely need the 10m2 and the Rip39. I would take the 18 and -if there's space- the 2nd board.

As for the forecast -not sure about the specific spot- but in general windguru is pretty good all around Greece (apart from thermals/sea breeze that will be a few knots stronger than shown).

In Kremasti & Theologos it was a bit choppy, I guess Kalavarda will be as well.

There are these guys you could contact https://kiteandsurfrhodes.com/en/kitesu ... kalavarda/

hope I helped a bit ;)

Hi!

Thanks für the additional infos!
It simply didn't came to my mind that Google could also show ATMs. The 5 km can I go by bicycle if necessary.
After your comments I'll take all my stuff. I fly with Eurowings and in the fee for the sport/surf luggage is 32kg included. So no problem on this.
For the temps... I think most probably my neoprene stuff stays home... Will decide later :roll:

Cheers
Chris
