Greece - where mediterranean and Aegean seas meet Windsurf in Greece
Skysurf in Greece The point where the Aegean and Mediterranean seas meet together is curious and impressive. In fact, the Mediterranean sea is always calm, while the Aegean sea has always powerful weaves, although the two seas are just a few meters between them and separated by just a tongue of sand (sometimes disappearing completely). The place is also very windy and, for all these reasons, the place is a paradise for windsurf and skysurf lovers.
