Kiteboarding / Kitesurfing in Avdimou Beach, Limassol, Cyprus
Limassol has a typical Mediterranean climate with hot and dry summers and mild rainy winters. The hot summer season starts from mid May until mid October with average high temperatures at 33 °C /91 °F and sometimes more during heatwaves, while during winter the average temperature range from 19 °C/66 °F to 30 °C /86 °F.
Avdimou Beach is a beautiful bay with a lot of space and crystal clear blue waters. As it is possible to launch your kite from almost anywhere, the beach has become a famous spot among kite-surfers who wish to take lessons or improve their skills and expand their technique.
During the summer months, the wind coming from Southwest is constant, but can become gutsy late in the afternoon. On the west side of the bay, the on shore winds create the perfect conditions for freestyle and speed kite-surfing and if you visit the spot later than 12:00, the thermal winds reach up to 15 knots/28 kph. Note that kite-surfing is allowed outside the swimming area and be careful of the rocks and the mountain over the beach.
