Viganj is one of the most well-known windsurfing and kitesurfing spots in Croatia because it is situated in the middle of a narrow channel between Peljesac and Korcula. The wind tends to blow twice as fast as it usually does in the Adriatic, providing ideal conditions for kitesurfing and for learning how to kitesurf. At Water Donkey Kitesurfing Center, you can get all kinds of kitesurfing lessons according to International Kiteboarding Organization (IKO) and Verein Deutscher Wassersport Schulen (VDWS) standards!
