Based on the amazing sandy beach of Messakti, Ikaria Surf School offers surf and SUP courses. I did not have to take a course, but I did SUP once. Vassilis is a friendly, nice lad to chat with. Prices are reasonable. Recommended.

A great team which will get you riding on waves. You get an introduction to the basics some, you do the moves on the beach and you get into the sea. A fun experience for everybody!
