#2 Get connected to nature with a windsurf

You might have come to Chalkidiki to relax. But if there's one sport where you leave your troubles on the shore, that’s windsurfing.

When you choose windsurfing, you come across a one-of-a-kind experience. And that’s why the sea is never the same as the surroundings change day by day.

 

It surely demands total body engagement and multi-tasking, but if the idea of a gym workout makes you feel claustrophobic, then this sport is for you!

Tip: Don’t be hard on yourself the first time. Windsurfing is hard to learn but once you’ve nailed the basics the sport is endless.

Do you want something more exciting than the aforementioned? Wakeboarding is not just fun weekend activity, but quite beneficial for your body.

The adrenaline alone suffices to relieve a wake-boarder from the stresses of day-to-day life.

Your vacation is the best time for it!

Tip: Be careful if you have problems with your head since when plunged into the sea, the greatest impact is always on the head.
