Kiteboarding is a combination of windsurfing, wakeboarding, surfing, skiing and paragliding all rolled into one. It is one of the extreme sports of the 21st century and is fast growing in popularity. Although still a relatively young sport, recent innovations in kite design and harness systems plus the professionalization of instruction has ensured that the safety of kiteboarding has increased considerably.Many of the clubs which offer windsurfing along this eastern coast of Paros also offer kiteboarding instruction and equipment to rent or buy. Paroskite Kiteboarding Centre: Kiteboard and Windsurfing Centre is located around 26km from Parikia, on the western side of the island at Pounda Beach, close to the little harbour for the boats to Antiparos. Don’t confuse this area with the huge holiday club resort of Pounda on the opposite eastern coast just up from New Golden Beach. The two places are quite different. Pounda beach has a very long sandy, windy beach with no obstructions to impede your kiteboard tuition. As such the beach has become an international kiteboarding location.
