I had a great experience with Amouditis Kitesurfing Center in Naxos. Mixalis was an extremely knowledgeable and patient instructor. I was amazed at how he maneuvered his small boat while flying the kite to go back up wind. I was able to get a lot of riding in without having to chase my board around. I was able to learn a couple of new moves to improve my kitesurfing ability. I would highly recommend Mixalis and Amouditis Kitesurfing Center!

It was such an awesome experience to do a kite surf course with Mixalis! He was super thoughtful and was able to explain everything in a very good way. He was really helpful and super friendly. They possibility to learn it from the boat makes it way easier to learn instead to do it from the beach where you have to walk back and front all the time. I would definitely highly recommend his kite surf school to everyone, also including the possibilty to stay in Mixalis and Vanessas Guesthouse "Studios Vrettos Beachfront Hotel Naxos". It is so close to the beach and such a lovely place to stay!

My boys had a wonderful 3 sessions of lessons with Mixalis this week. The use of the boat gave access to a huge expanse of deep blue sea to push their kiting and lead to ride upwind, uninterrupted by other kiters. Thank you Mixalis for your calmness and kindness. Looking forward to seeing you again - if not for more lessons then certainly to say hello

Great experience! Best way to learn kitesurfing from a boat on the open sea with instructions via walky talky. For me this worked better than from a crowded beach, and it was even more affordable. Vanesa and Mixalis are very welcoming and helpful, picked us up from our stay. Mixalis gave good and clear instructions, the gear was in perfect shape. My partner (more experience kitesurfer) could join the boat and surf down wind to Mikri Vigla. Hope to come back some day!

Me and my partner came for a couple of days to Naxos, especially for some good kitingsurfing. We were not beginners anymore, but could use some lessons. Mixalis is a great teacher that sees the details to get you better. It's really amazing how he teaches from the boat and uses a walkietalkie. Really recommend if you want to start kiting or want to get some great tips to get you going!!!

Tolles Kitesurf-Erelebnis, danke Mixalis! 🙂 Ich habe zum ersten Mal versucht, Kitesurfen zu erlernen und hätte mir dafür keinen besseren Ort als die Insel Naxos vorstellen können. Der Kitespot auf Plaka Beach ist nicht überlaufen, was für mich als Anfängerin angenehmer und auch ungefährlicher war. Mixalis hatte alle Geduld der Welt mit mir! Durch seine Funk-Anweisungen und die Bootsbegleitung fühlte ich mich stets sicher und niemals gestresst. Vielen Dank und ich kann es kaum erwarten, wieder zu kommen.

Was für eine Kiteschule! Ich bin begeistert! War mit meiner Frau im Mai dort, wir haben recht spontan einen Kurs buchen können, als sich ein günstiges Windfenster auftat. Mixalis und Vanessa bedienen hier einen Spot, der etwas abseits vom überlaufenen Mikra Vilia liegt. Richtig geil - man hat einfach so viel Platz wie sonst eigentlich nie als Anfänger:in und muss sich nie Gedanken darum machen, wo andere gerade fahren. Und Mixalis holt einen genau da ab, wo man gerade ist. Bei mir waren es die ersten Versuche des Höhelaufens sowie die Wende. Dazu hat Mixalis mir über Funk immer wieder Tipps auch während des Fahrens geben können. Enorm hilfreich! In Kiel an der Ostsee (mein Homespot) sind die Bedingungen zwar ganz andere, aber ich bin immer wieder begeistert, was für einen Sprung ich mit Mixalis Hilfe gemacht habe. Und die Gastfreundlichkeit von Vanessa ist ehrlicherweise nicht zu schlagen - ein Rundum Sorglospaket zu echt erschwinglichem Preis. Fragt nach einem Kurs und schaut es euch selbst an - ihr werdet es nicht bereuen. Vielen Dank dafür und auf ein hoffentlich nächstes Mal!

We spent one week learning kite surf with Mixalis and it was an amazing experience! The spot is unique, Mixalis brings us on his boat from the shore to kite in the bay, so we were fully alone which is a big advantage if you want to learn in a safety place! All the tips were good, and now we are exciting to continue practicing! Thank you to the Vane and Mixalis for their support in this adventure

I would definitely recommend Amouditis. The instructor talked clearly and calmly, which I found super helpful. It is the perfect place to learn. After a few lessons I could kite!

Spot parfait pour apprendre beaucoup d'espace pour naviguer. Equipe très compétente locaux pratique très bonne équipement. Prix raisonnables. Un grand merci à Mixa et vanesa pour leur accueil chaleureux. Nous reviendrons.

The best experience you can have in Naxos!!! Michalis is so charismatic instructing and giving you useful advise about kitesurfing, while in the same time keeping the lessons so relaxed and fun. Even if kitesurfing is considered an extreme sport, don't be scared, Michalis will make you feel like you going for a walk, he follows you with a boat all the time, so everything is super safe and controlled. Also his assistant Vanessa she is extremely helpful and welcoming! Overall a must do experience in Naxos

If you want to kite at Naxos, this is the place to be! I had rental gear (new North material) and would highly recommend this kiteschool. Mixalis and Vane run the place with passion and dedication, they work hard to give you the best experience. Genuinly kind persons who care and are true professionals. Had some really great sessions in the stunning bay of Plaka. While closeby there's the busy spot of Mikri Vigla, here at Plaka you have some space to practice your tricks. I had so much fun with great company and felt very safe! This is definitely a place I will visit again. They also have rooms near the spot and a supernice rooftop bar.

I had only 2 days to try kite surf. I knew it was not enough but I wanted to try when I saw Mixailis teaching in a boat in a quite bay. Mixailis explains well and patiently. Although I couldnt do a lot I am happy I tried. I would like to continue when I’ll have longuer time. Thank you Mixailis and Vanessa

Had such a great time trying for the first time kite surfing! As u reach the beach in front of Amouditis Kitesurfing Center in Naxos, u’ll find the kindest person: Vanessa. She will take care of u giving u all the equipment to do kite surfing. As u reach the boat u’ll find Mixalis: kind, empathic and very very professional! I did 6 hours of lessons in total and I was already able to do water starts and ride on both side! Best people and best price in Naxos by far! Next year I will be back for sure! Cheers 🤙🏻

My friend and I had a 2 hour lesson with Mixalis as total beginners. It was great! When we arrived we signed releases, got fitted for our equipment, and then went to the beach. We learned how to set up the kite, went through some safety training with the equipment and also learned how to think about the wind, tide / current, etc. We then went out on the boat to learn to fly the kite. We flew the kite from the boat, with Mixalis ensuring we weren’t carried away. We had plenty of time and space to learn. It was a great lesson and we both got the early introduction to the sport we wanted. We’ll need another few hours of lessons to be good enough to ride a board. Mixalis is a very cool, low stress person with excellent English. Highly recommend.

Incroyable spot pour apprendre et progresser ! Moniteur dédié à vous et à votre progression. Très sympathiques, arrangeant bref the place to be 😎

I was an absolute beginner with no idea. Mixalis was patient, professional, and most importantly just a solid human being. I echo other's sentiments regarding his care about your experience - it's genuine. You get 1 on 1 attention in a safe environment to learn a thrilling sport. Thank you Mixalis & Vanessa!

Mixalis et Vanessa nous ont réservé un accueil chaleureux. Nous avons rajouté des séances de cours à celle initialement prévue. Nous avons passé de très bons moments. Merci encore!

Bellissima esperienza. Mixalis e Vanesa sono gentilissimi e professionali. Lo consiglio vivamente a chiunque volesse imparare il kite surfing

Super recommended! Mixalis and Vanessa were very kind and professional. I'm a beginner with some practice. I did two hours of lessons starting from the boat, perfecting the technique and turns, trying to do some easy jumps. Ideal situation for learning: followed in the middle of the sea with the boat. I was practically the only kite in the spot, as it wasn't possible to start from the ground. Very good equipment and the best price on the island. Spectacular!

I really enjoyed my first lessons of kitesurfing with Mixalis. He is an excellent teacher, who always provides good advice to improve. He was very present and always very close with the boat to tell me how to correct my mistakes, which made me feel safe. And Amouditis is far more than just a kite school, Mixalis and Vanesa were very welcoming and had always time to share their favorite places in Naxos. Alice

If you’re planning to visit Naxos, make sure to swing by Amouditis at Plaka beach. Made my vacation to Naxos worthwhile and it’s an experience I’ll never forget. I knew nothing about the sport of kite surfing but happened to be driving by their office and decided to go in to learn more. I was greeted by Mixalis and Vanesa who run the business. They were very hospitable and immediately made me feel very welcomed and I decided to sign up for a 2hr lesson. Mixalis is the instructor who is very knowledgable and taught me about equipment set up, mechanics of the kite, how to fly safely, and etc. Within that window I was out in the water feeling more confident about flying the kite and it was such a fun time that I signed up for additional lessons to continue learning and practicing. Mixalis was patient and gave good instruction to help me improve and you can tell he knows what he’s doing. They are located a little north of the other kite surfing centers but the good thing about that is you’re able to practice in an area with less distractions. Highly recommend!!

One of the best kitesurf schools i’ve ever seen. Mixalis is a really experienced teacher and he gives powerful tips which can help you improve your kiting skills. The thing that I really liked is that while you are kiting, he follows you with a boat where he can closely check your riding posture and easily find the mistakes that you are doing. Fully recommended!

A very nice and good kite school! When I arrived I got very warm welcomed by Vanessa, we had nice chats while waiting for Mikalis, the kite teacher. The equipment is in very good conditions. Since I already kited once, Mikalis was first checking on which level I am and did a short recap which was really good. Further, I was really curious how the lesson will be from a boat. I have to say, it is really good and I can recommend it. My very first lessons had been in Mikri Vigla (down the beach) and with good wind it is super crowded. Now, on the boat you are flexible and in the middle of the water I was able to just focus on me and my kite instead of paying attention to other kiters and being afraid to crash. The communication via walkie talkie on the helmet was very good and due to all the tips I learned a lot! Compared to others Mikalis really focused on me and gave me the feeling that he also wants me to drive and not just getting his money. Also, even though I booked two hours on my first day, I didn’t have to pay the full amount as there was no wind in the beginning - that was really kind! I will definitely come back either for improving my skills or just for a nice chat or visiting their roof top bar!😊

Super easy to book, most responsive school in the area. They teach with the boat which saves you time and you are alone in the water, as a student this makes it super easy and safe to learn. Great new equipment as well! Thank you both, will be for sure be back next time we are in Naxos!!!

Don't look anywhere else. Mixalis and Vanes are the best people in town. Generous in mind and spirit, you cannot have a better time!

Very beautiful kite spot with incredible support and service. For my part, I rented the equipment only, recent and of quality at a very good price. Mixalis and Vanessa are very welcoming and generous hosts. Thank you both for these memorable kitesurfing days.

Went for kitesurfing lessons.. this place is really safe compare to the other beach which is busy with many other kitesurfers. Going from the boat gets you straight in the water conditions.. Mixalis is very flexible, kind, patient and motivated to get you safely in the water. Nice place, nice environment, kind people 👍

Mixalis was very personable and was a great instructor for us as first timers. We learned how to prepare and assemble the kite, the safety features, and spent a good amount of time flying the kite. By the end of the lesson we had a decent handle on the kite mechanics and decided to come back for a second lesson the next day to try it out on the water. Unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate for the second lesson, but we still got a great introduction to the sport.

Wir haben in diesem Sommer das Kitesurfen begonnen und können die Ausbildung durch Mixalis vollends empfehlen. Da man mit einem Schlauchboot rausfährt, kann man sich komplett auf das Kitesurfen konzentrieren, ohne andere Kitesurfer um sich herum zu haben. Mixalis ist sehr geduldig, gibt super Tipps, sodass man täglich Fortschritte macht. Seine Apartments liegen an einem der schönsten Strandabschnitte der Insel. Die Crew ist super hilfsbereit und offen, sodass man sich wie zu Hause fühlt. Alles in Kombination ein super Ding zum Wiederkommen 🙂 bis zum nächsten Mal, dann mit Jumps! PS: Die Preise sind auch super fair.

I really wanted to learn kite surfing and this was the perfect place to do so! The instructor Mixalis gave me really good advices! He has a radio connected on your helmet, so he can really tell you what to do while you are doing it, that works really well. Also its great that he brings you with a boat more off shore to a place where there is no other kiters! This is good cause you dont have to be scared of nulpunt into onther kiters. Also, because of being further off shore, you can try and try and try, perfect! Other than the kiting itself, the people of the place/appartements are super friendly and will help you with all your questions, for example about what to do and see in Naxos. The appartments are good and breakfast as well. I’d definitely like to come back here. Either for kiting or for the nice place!

Best experience ever. If I could i would give 1000 stars. Mixalis is a great teacher and the school location ist amazing! There are no other Kitesurfers, so u don’t need to stress about anything. There is just you, your kite and the best teacher in the world ! You can feel really safe and because Mixalis is in the boat right behind you, so whatever happens he will be there to help you within a blink of an eye. He creates a safe learning environment and his explanation are easy to understand. Highly recommended! Mixalis & Vane Thank you for everything. See you next year !

Amouditis Kitesurfing exceeded all my expectations! The instructor Michalis is top-notch, patient, and safety-conscious. The equipment is well-maintained, and the location is perfect for kitesurfing. We had an unforgettable experience and can't wait to return next year. Highly recommended!

If you've been on the hunt for the ultimate kitesurfing experience, your search ends here. My recent 9-day adventure at Amouditis Kitesurfing in Naxos was an absolute game-changer, and I owe it all to the incredible duo of Max and Vanessa. From exceptional teaching to unparalleled hospitality, this place has it all. Naxos, with its breathtaking crystal-clear blue waters and perfect temperature, provided the ideal backdrop for my kitesurfing journey. And the best part? No need to worry about any lurking sharks either 🙂 One of the standout features that sets Amouditis Kitesurfing Center apart is its exclusivity. Unlike other spots like Mikri Vigla, where you'd find 50-100 learners crowding a small beach, Amouditis offers a serene and secluded learning environment. Max holds the exclusive license for this pristine beach, meaning you won't be sharing the space with other kite surfers. It's just you, the waves, and the wind. Max's teaching approach is a true testament to his expertise and patience. He starts with the fundamentals, ensuring a strong foundation, before gradually building up to more advanced technical skills. What truly sets him apart is his personalized approach. With a one-of-a-kind setup, Max accompanies you on a boat while you're in the water, providing dedicated 1:1 guidance. This level of attention is invaluable and makes the learning experience not only effective but also incredibly enjoyable. As the days went by, I found myself progressing faster than I could have imagined. Max's guidance and Vanessa's warm hospitality created an environment where I felt supported and encouraged every step of the way. By the end of the week, I was up on my board, riding the waves with confidence and excitement, next up riding upwind. The only downside? Having to leave this paradise behind. See you on teh waves.

We had a great time and I highly recommend the kitesurf school! We could easily schedule the lessons and they were super flexible. Lessons took place whenever it fit with our travel plans, no problem at all. It was really nice that the spot at the beach was not crowded at all. As a beginner that was really important to me. Also, you have a boat so that you can actually spend the maximum of time practicing and not wasting time with walking back with all the equipment.

I recently learned kitesurfing at the Amouditis Kitesurfing School in Naxos, and I cannot express my gratitude and admiration enough for Coach Mixalis and his exceptional teaching methods. Mixalis creates a safe, supportive, and motivating learning environment, which is especially vital when working with beginners like myself. Under his guidance, I quickly realized that I was capable of achieving far more than I had imagined. What sets Mixalis apart is his personalized approach to teaching. He took the time to understand my strengths, weaknesses, and individual learning style, tailoring his instructions accordingly. His explanations were clear, concise, and easy to comprehend, even for a complete novice like me. Whether it was explaining the mechanics of kite control or demonstrating proper body positioning. He spread enthusiasm throughout every session, sharing his knowledge, experience, and love for the sport. Thank you for an exceptional experience that will stay with me forever!!! 🙂

You can tell Mixalis really cares about giving his students the best possible experience. He’s a brilliant teacher and such a great guy. He has excellent communication skills and is great at English. He was able to tailor the lessons to my skill level and pushed me to improve in a way that was fun and felt safe. The gear was top notch. He has lots of different sized kites. One day when the wind dropped mid lesson, he was able to quickly swap to a bigger kite and continue the lesson immediately. I can’t recommend Mixalis highly enough. I’ve tried kitesurfing a few times before and never really got it. After 3 days with Mixalis, I was standing up and starting to cruise on the board. I had the absolute best experience with him!!!

Mixalis is hands down the best kite surfing instructor!!! Have had many instructors before and ‘Mike’s’ instructions and tips are clearer and help beginners easily get up and get going! Great price, great communication via whatsapp, brand new awesome gear, everything was easy and so much fun! Thank you thank you! Highly recommend!!!!
