This surf holiday will take place at Gokceada island, Aegean Sea, Turkey. Gökçeada / Imroz island is located in the Aegean sea across the Dardanelles. It is the largest island in Turkey, part of Canakkale province.
Crazy Island kite and windsurf itself is located at Aydincik beach (the flat water spot). The center is a part of a beach complex with wooden villas, restaurant, coffee-bar and garden, with Wi-Fi access everywhere.
The wind on the island is northeast. This is the same well known Meltemi which works in all the islands in the Aegean. The wind in Gokceada is accelerated by thermal and venturi effects. During the summer, there is constant wind 22 - 25 knots in the morning, which slowly falls to 6 - 12 knots in the late afternoon. Fronts come with strong winds around 28 - 35 knots or stronger.
There are two main spots in Gokceada island - with mirror flat water (offshore wind) and spot with waves up to 1.5 - 2 meters (on shore, side on shore).
Active season in Gokceada is from May to October. From June to mid September, wetsuit is not necessary. In the beginning of May and in October, long 3/4/5mm wetsuit is recommended as the water is chilly, while after mid May and the second half of September, shorty or 1-2 mm wetsuit is okay.
It is mirror flat water spot, which offers perfect conditions for advancing in freestyle and race every morning, and for beginners in the afternoon when the wind falls. The sea bed is sandy and safe. Crazy Island is located on this beach. The center is equipped with 2 rescue boats for assistance.
It provides great jumping conditions for wave riders at all levels. It is a big bay with sandy bed, safe for the riders and the gear. The wave spot is 2 kilometers far from the center, Crazy Island Center arranges transfer to the wave spot for the riders and the equipment.
The island is big and undiscovered. There are other great places except the main spots, the secret spots are side shore spots with waves up to 2 meters. If you are looking for new adventure and want to stay out of the crowd, Crazy Island Center can arrange trip upon request, the spots are reachable in half hour from Crazy Island Center at Aydincik beach.
It is a great experience and fun - the downwind distance is about 15 kilometers and the final stop is at the wave spot, the starting point is 1/2 hour's drive from the center, trips could be arranged upon request.
During this holiday, you will be served fresh and healthy organic locally grown food. You will get delicious, but light supper, as detox is crucial part of this program. Cleaning your body works to lose weight, to energize yourself, to gain better health, and to look even brighter. Your special diet is based on seasonal vegetables, fruits, fresh fish, and locally produced island specialties like honey and olive oil.
You can explore the whole island with its hidden bays and untouched nature. Crazy Island Center offers daily transfer to each part of the island at an additional 15 EUR.
Take a round trip to discover the diversity and hidden beauty of the island. You can explore the small bays, chill in the shadow of 700 years old trees, watch the sea, and visit different small villages.
