Wind Surfing in Viganj Beach, Peljesac Peninsula, Croatia
Favored by the Mediterranean climate, Viganj has long and hot dry summers with an average temperature of 25 °C/ 77 °F . As it is located in the narrowest part of the channel, the wind accelerates twice as fast as it does in the Adriatic Sea, thus providing with the perfect conditions for freestyle and high speed windsurfing.
The consistent Mistral winds coming from Northwest, reach a speed of up to 27 knots/50 kph and usually start from 12:00 pm and hold until sunset. The water is crystal clear and the waves can sometimes be rough and choppy. Viganj Beach is ideal for all skill levels and there are schools as well as gear rentals available on the spot for those who want to take lessons or improve their skills.
You can windsurf there from May to late September. However, for the adrenaline seekers who wish to experience the speed of the wind at its best form, the best season is from June to late August. Viganj Beach also hosts many national windsurfing competitions such as the Open Championship of Croatia and the Croatian Cup, where the best windsurfers compete each other in speed and skills. Without a doubt, this is the best place for windsurfing in Croatia.

The Beginner Kitesurf Course lasts 12 hours over estimated 5 days. Each day, there is class. We find that dividing the course into multiple days makes the learning curve better for our students. The course is done via a boat which constantly follows our students during the course. On the boat are one or more instructors that give tips and corrections to students. Our instructors are also there to jump in and assist the students and show them how everything is done. In our kitesurf school, students are best taken care of since our skilled team is always behind them. The rent of all equipment and the boat is included in the price. In case you need some extra hour to finish the course, we will take extra time with you.
The kitesurf school days are divided as follows:
1st day – Theory on the beach, setting up the gear, learning about the winds, trainer kite
2nd day – Going out with boat, learning to control the kite in the water, learning body drag
3rd day – Moving and turning without the board in the water, going upwind without board
