Downwind is the original version of Stand Up Paddle, Surfski and Wing Foil. A strong wind of 4 bft + is required, which together with the wave push the rider in his path. Rowing becomes enjoyable but also demanding in balance and technique.
The most popular beach for Downwind sessions is the beach of Loutsa, right in front of our Club. The classic route Loutsa-Vravrona with north, is probably the most pleasant and safe route for downwind. The History of SUP Downwind in Greece, started here in Loutsa in 2008, with the first attempts of George Kontarinis, Kyriakos Stellas, Eleni Katsarou, Vangelis Avramidis and a few friends, while it became widely known with the first Downwind race we organized in 2010 and remained in history.
