Akyaka (Turkey) stole our hearts when we got to ride there for the first time last year! We are super stoked to show this exciting discovery to you!

One of Turkey's best and most popular kite playground, it's got world class standards, and even hosted the World Kiteboarding Championship in 2017 & 2018.

Riding in Gokova bay, among sea turtles, in a spectacular scenery, surrounded by mountains covered in pine trees, is an amazing experience!

On top, we've got alot of activities to do and places to explore when not on the water.

We'll have there ideal kite conditions, for beginner and for advanced riders: spacious bay (3 km wide), flat, shallow water and reliable, consistent thermal wind which blows almost every day. Due to its orientation, Gökova Bay does not suffer from gusty wind; it is clean, smooth and friendly as there are no obstacles for it to pass over on its way to you and your kite!

Our coach for next level (tricks) is Vlad Postelnicu, who doesn't need any further introduction.

The area offers a wide variety of fun things to do on the water and off the water. We'll have a week full of action, no matter if you just want to ride or you don't have anything to do with the kite world and you just want to spend few days in the middle of the nature: you'll be able to choose from a lot of excursions (boat trips, river cruise, visit to Marmaris or Bodrum) and activities (SUP, sailing, freediving, spear fishing, trimaran sailing, mountain bike, hiking, workout, yoga&stretching sessions), in house services at the hotel (sauna, massage, swimming pool) parties (welcome pool party, good bye party)

Besides, we'll discover the magnificent aegean riviera, with its crystal clear waters, azure skies, pine tree forests, where the mountains and the sea merge together. Not to mention Akyaka, the place we'll stay (10 min drive to the kite spot), considered the place where the heart of kiteboarding beats in Turkey.

It is a beautiful mountain town, with amazing nature, unique Ottoman architecture and culture. You'll enjoy walking the streets of Akyaka, admiring the beautifully restored houses with amazing woodwork bordered by pine-forests and a fantastic mountain backdrop.

Akyaka is really a kitesurfer friendly place, with a lot to offer in terms of very good social and nightlife (here are enough restaurants and bars to keep us busy), outdoor activities & adventure.

Gokova is just like a heaven with its numerous bays and perfect colour harmony of green and blue.

It is a well known fact that the Gokova Gulf is the most beautiful gulf in Turkey. The sea and the pine trees integrate well with the bays sometimes running amongst the pine trees like a river. There are lots of nested bays at this section that are round in shape which are commonly referred as waterside thicket in the region.

Gokova Gulf is one of the essential destinations of yacht tours and blue cruises thanks to its natural and historical wonders.

It is a place to fascinate you with its wonderful fresh fish, golden sand beaches, turquoise colour sea and historical ruins.

The kite spot is spacious, with all amenities (storage, rental, lessons, lounge, shadow, shower, toilets, restaurant, beach bar) allowing the riders & their non-kiter friends or family to enjoy every moment spent on the beach! The sea bottom is pure sand, you can enjoy stepping on the soft sand with bare foot and you won’t need any shoes!
