Paros KitePro Center

Paros Kite Pro Center was founded in 2002 by George Prounjos and Petros Kaparos. Both Kiteboarders at that time, realized that Pounda Beach is the perfect spot, not just for advanced Kiteboarders, but also for beginners to learn the fast rising extreme sport of Kiteboarding. George became IKO Instructor and Paros Kite Pro Center started off for the first season as IKO affiliated center. Later also Kay-Constantin Livas joined the team.
The big request of kiteboarding lessons made Paros Kite Pro Center to grow continously. Over the next two years, several pro riders passed by Paros Kite Pro Center like Marc Doyle, Dimirti Maramenidis, etc.

By the end of 2003, Pounda Beach and Paros Kite Pro Center had become one of the best kiteboarding spots in Europe. This lead to the decision to organize the PKRA World Cup in Paros . In July 2005 PKRA World Tour stopped in Paros and brought more than 60 of the top kiteboarders from over 28 countries to challenge for the title.

Riders like Aaron Hadlow, Leshai Miller and Damien Leroy stayed almost one month longer at Paros Kite Pro Center to built and hit the biggest slider ever. The slider was 27 meters long and 5 meters high and was consisted of two parts with a gap in the middle, and a kicker at the top end.

In July 2006 Paros Kite Pro Center became again host of a world tour stop. The 2006 KPWT Paros Kiteboarding World Cup. More than 45 riders, male and female from all over the world came to Paros to battle for the titles in the discipines freestyle, hang time, best trick and long distance race. This year the wind was up as supposed and all challanges were held in best possible conditions. Big showdown was the live TV coverage on Saturday 15th by Supersport channel, showing all finales from 8 different cameras, one even up in the sky located on a helicopter.

Paros Kite Pro Center has become world famous for its good winds and conditions for Kiteboarding. It occupies approximately six IKO instructors during high season. In 2005 Paros Kite Pro Center also started to offer windsurfing lessons and rentals.

Hang time on Pounda beach at ParosΕπόμενος σταθμός μας η Πούντα της Πάρου. Ελπίζουμε οι φωτογραφίες 
να σας δώσουν μια γεύση από το καταπληκτικό αυτό μέρος.
Οι φωτογραφίες τραβήχτηκαν ανάμεσα στις ημερομηνίες 01/09/06 και 04/09/06.

Το συγκεκριμένο kitespot βρίσκεται 10 λεπτά έξω από το λιμάνι της Πάρου,
την Παροικιά και λίγο πριν τις Αλυκές. Η παραλία της Πούντας είναι ιδανική
για kitesurf καθώς φυσάει μελτέμι από νωρίς το πρωΐ εώς αργά το βράδυ. Εκεί μπορείτε να βρείτε και 2 σχολές kitesurfing οι οποίες παρέχουν και 
υπηρεσίες ενοικίασης και φύλαξης αετών και board. Το μέρος αυτό ενδείκνυται 
για αρχάριους καθώς επικρατούν συνθήκες sideshore ενώ τα club παρέχουν

rescue boats σε περίπτωση που κάτι πάει στραβά.

Να σημειώσουμε ότι η τοποθεσία ευνοεί την ενοικίαση δωματίων και απο κοντινά
μέρη όπως η Παροικιά αλλά και οι Αλυκές όπου θα βρείτε πολύ καλύτερες τιμές.

Αν κάποιος θέλει να κατεβάσει μια ή μερικές απο τις φωτο για δική του χρήση χωρίς το
λογότυπο του μπορεί να επικοινωνήσει μαζί μου συμπληρώνοντας
