Kitesurfing wind conditions in Kos - Kohilari Beach

The Meltemi thermal wind builds through the morning, ranging from about 10-18 knots, then picks up towards the afternoon and can reach 25 knots, blowing side to side onshore. Kohilari is the best of the Kos kitesurfing beaches; it is sandy, so no shoes are needed, and it also doesn't get too crowded because there is plenty of space on the water. Some people enjoy kiteboarding near the center and there are often people taking lessons, so it may get crowded right in front, but you are not forced to hang around and there's plenty of room for kitesurfing further up the Kohilari beach.

The wind is usually pretty constant, and the water is shallow for around 15-20 meters before it gets deep so it's ideal for beginners and pro kitesurfers alike. When it's windy, little waves break over the sandy bottom, which are great fun to kitesurf in, and the flat sections in between mean both wave riders and freestylers will feel equally at home.
