The morning presented itself with beautiful colors, offshore wind and steady waves. Even the onlookers on the beach were stunned with the show our surfers and nature presented them! Surfing in Crete means empty surf and many many surprised faces.
We just can't get enough! With a swell like that, you just HAVE to surf every day. Tina and Christian are in paradise. And first time surfer Dennis, enjoyed the warm waters and beautiful waves of Crete.
Today the beach presented itself as the perfect wave machine. Set after set the waves were braking at a point, rolling smoothly to the beach just waiting to be surfed by us. So we established the carousel, paddling out, surfing in, paddling out... until we could not surf no more. You can tell by the happy faces!
A surfer knows the feeling. Happy and tired we finish our today's session. Newly stoked surfer Jan, had got company from Norwegian intermediate surfers, Amund and Erik from Norway. They were happy to find us on the beach and include a surf session to their vacation in Greece. How lucky that we have such beautiful waves here!
And again we were all alone on the beach sharing the waves with each other. Jan went from newbie learning how to surf in Crete to intermediate: turning to the left and the right, paddling and handling the board with ease.
Today Andy had a very special surf student: his physiotherapist! More than once Jan fixed Andy's injuries and physical imbalances, and the two share a special bond. So we were happy to show Jan how to surf in Crete and he was riding his first waves and a beautiful summer day in Greece!
Today we took the yoga group from Mavros Molos on a pleasant yet spectacular SUP-Tour. There is so much to discover when you see the ocean paddling on a Stand-Up-Paddle-Board. Starting from the blues of the Aegean sea, to the fishes and rocks of the ocean surface, our tour takes you along the splendid coastline, you will dive in the refreshing water, see the caves and much more. And all that doing a full body work out and improving your balance.
Today was the last day of our Girls Camp surfing in Crete. We celebrated with a sunset BBQ and are sure that we see each other again. The girls are currently traveling through Europe on InterRail. InterRail gives you 30% off on ferry boat tickets.
But before the day ended, the girls were true Viking worriers, doing a double sesh, paddling into the stormy sea of Crete and catching waves. We all had so much fun and were finally exhausted. In the evening we shared stories about Icelandic summer and of course - Beyoncé!
