Riding the waves in Greece !

Who could tell that we have such sea waves in Greece that you can surf on them !
The First Day of the New Year 2010 found me and friends and family south of Athens to enjoy the incredible weather havin' a coffee by the sea.
I noticed that it was a bit windy, then when we stopped by a small gulf near Vouliagmeni I noticed that the sea waves was not as usual. They were bigger, like swells and they smashed on the rocks strongly.
When we reached the cafe, we saw many people in suimsuits swimming, running, playing and a second later we saw many people in black uniforms with a surf running to the sea ... oh my ... the waves were big enough for surfing ! That's rare in Greece as it is a country of the Mediterranean sea which does not usually make oceanic sea waves that are good for surfing. That's why we have many windsurfers here, because we have winds but not such waves.
It is not happening often, but as I saw myself, it happens even in Athens !
It was great, I had never seen this sports before, some pictures here.
Enjoy :

Απίστευτο! Κι εγώ που νόμιζα ότι μόνο στη Λευκάδα κάνουν σερφ!! Και είναι και πολλοί!!
Καλή χρονιά!!

Πόσο τους ζηλεύω!!
Ελεύθεροι να χορεύουν πάνω στα κύματα σαν τα γλαροπούλια!!
Πανέμορφες οι φωτό σου!
Καλή σου μέρα και θαλασσινά @@

Tρελοτουρίστρια ήξερα οτι στην Λευκάδα κάνουν αυτα τα σπορ με ενα αλεξίπτωτο ξέρεις, πώς το λενε ... μια ανεμοπορία ενα τέτοιο.
Για σέρφ δεν ειχα ιδέα.
Να που έχουμε και στην Ελλάδα κάποια κύματα για σέρφ !

ΖΟΥΖΟΥ εκείνη τη μερα ειδα και πολλούς απο τους σέρφερς οταν ειχαν βγεί εξω για να φύγουν, όλοι ειχαν στο πρόσωπο μιά έξαψη, μια ευχαρίστηση απερίγραπτη.
Εχω κάνει λιγο, ελάχιστο, ιστιοσανίδα και καταλαβαίνω ποιά ειναι η αίσθηση πάνω στο κύμα. Πολύ ξεχωριστή.
Σε ευχαριστώ και τωρα μπορώ να περάσω να δω και τι κάνει το "Αρμενάκι" σου :)

Haha so cool! In 1,5 months I will go to my homeland and I will try to surf ;-)

Στη Μεσακτή της Ικαρίας, τα κύματα είναι ιδανικά για σερφ κι έχει αρκετούς που κάνουν. Αν βρεθείς ποτέ πάρε και τη μηχανή σου μαζί.

tzonakos said...

monkie thank you
Η Ικαρία ειναι ετσι και αλλιώς ενας προορισμός που απο παλιά ήθελα να πάω, και θα παω.

Robert,
enjoyed your blog Arthur Stace :)
Australia seems to me soooo big to explore !
Someone who hasn;t yet explored 99% of his own smaller country can only dream of knowing well a much bigger place with so big variety of natural beauty.

Sorry for delaying to publish your comments, alla of you, I was out for personal reasons for a while.

tzonakos said...

Thank you Jesson, it is rare to see such or bigger waves in Greece.

tzonakos said...

Commentbug I will take a look to your blog. Thank you.

Vinny,
greetings to Brazil and good luck to your national soccer team ( the Celesao ? )

anonymous Zeitgeist is a great movie.

tzonakos said...

Bastelopoly if your home is in Switzerland, it'll be really interesting to see surf waves there !
LOL, send me pictures of surfers in Switzerland maybe ?
:))

Thank you.
