A word about
ION CLUB Karpathos
Deserted beaches, idyllic mountain villages and cozy tavernas - this is Karpathos. The charm of the island is her virginity and originality. Karpathos is located on the eastern South Aegean island arc and is 46 km South-West of Rhodes. For many years, Karpathos has been a destination magnet for windsurfers returning year after year, thanks to the wind record.
Come in summertime and you will find everything surfers hearts wish for! The island stretches between Rhodes and Crete, and the Meltemi blows from the north through the high mountains.
High wind days in July and August are the rule rather than the exception. However, in May, September and October steady winds also delight many windsurfers. A partially pine-wooded mountain range crosses the island from the north to the middle. While altitudes above 600 meters can be found in the north, Kali Limni rises up to a height of 1,215 meters in the central island area.
These are some of the highest elevations of the Dodecanese which are usually laced with trails and gravel roads. This was an important reason to open a ION CLUB Mountain Bike Center, so now our guests have the opportunity to explore the island with the latest SCOTT Mountain Bikes.
May for relaxed wind, beginner or foiling, empty bays, enjoying mountain biking
June for the wind getting stronger, long day light
July and August: for the strong and the guarantied wind, energy full atmosphere in the Club
September: good wind, warm water, more biking and discovery possible
October: for an easy wind, foiling, beautiful biking, relaxing island
The meltemi is a summer wind which blows across Greece and the Aegean Sea from May till October with its peaks during July and August. Due to the hills configuration in Karpathos the wind is accelerated which explain why the wind is so strong and so often in Devil’s Bay (4 to 8 beaufort). Also, as Chicken Bay is more on the side of this wind channel, you will get 1 to 2 beaufort less in this bay. The wind comes from North-West and blows offshore from the left.
Bump & Jump conditions at Gun Bay, no shorebreak, chop up to 1 meter in strong wind about 500 meters from the shore, good for jumping, no wave riding. Flat water at Chicken Bay and Devil's Bay.
