Kouros Club - Anavyssos (Alykes Beach)

Best for: All levels
Thanks to the relatively flat terrain of the old salt flats behind the beach, the northeasterly wind coming into the bay is relatively strong and steady, making this one of the most popular spots for windsurfers. Here you’ll find the well-established Kouros Club, offering windsurfing and SUP rental and lessons for everyone from complete beginners to the more advanced. They also arrange kitesurfing trips to other beaches.

SUP Yoga


Kyma Surf School

Enjoy yoga while floating on water! Imagine the serenity of your yoga practice amidst gently lapping waves, the soothing sounds of water and a backdrop of a beautiful sunset...SUP YOGA for your body and mind.

Our SUP YOGA class combines traditional yoga postures (asanas) with the added fun of floating on a Stand-Up Paddleboard (SUP) in flat water. After warming up with a gentle paddle, the SUP YOGA class starts.

Your mat is a stand-Up paddleboard, the world is your studio and the elements of sun, wind and water have been invited. It is truly like heaven on Earth.

YOGA and Stand Up paddling go hand in hand because they both "take you right into the moment". They require concentration, balance, proper breathing, relaxation, a sense of adventure, a sense of humor and the ability to surrender to something much bigger than yourself. On the one hand you need to be brave, on the other, there is an extreme sense of humility and huge surrender.

Since the platform is unstable, it is adding a whole new element of core strength, intense focus and single-pointed concentration taking the practice to an entire new level. You'll be more tuned in with your poses, and with yourself. Come experience the magic of opening up the breath, quieting the mind, and moving into greater alignment with yourself and the natural beauty that surrounds us out on the water - pure bliss. Move your mat onto the water. We are waiting for you.
