WINDSURFING CENTER AND
WIND IN VIGANJ  

WATER DONKEY kitesurfing station in VIGANJ on the Pelješac peninsula is one of the windiest and most popular kitesurfing spots in Croatia.

WIND CLIMATE

You will find the best wind conditions from June to the end of August. (Maestral from the northwest). But also May and September (Bora from the northeast and the Jugo from the south) should not be neglected. The wind is caused by the temperature differences between land and water. You need a stable high-pressure area over Croatia and the thermal build-up reliably. In the months of May, June, and July the wind usually starts at noon and then blows through until evening. Here the average wind force reaches approx. 4-5 Bft. In August, due to the higher temperatures, the thermal starts a little later. Then the wind only comes from around 2 p.m. Here, too, the wind still reaches approx. 4-5 Bft. In September the wind starts a little later and often only comes from around 3 pm to 4 pm. Even in these months, you can still go surfing for 2 to 3 hours a day, but with larger sails and kites, as the wind hardly gets stronger than a good 4 Bft. The good and very even wind (Maestral) always comes side-shore from the right. Depending on the weather, it blows side-offshore or side-onshore. In the side-onshore wind direction, the wind may be slightly weaker for the first few meters than outside. In the morning there is usually only a light wind, which is perfect for beginners or some light training.

Learning to kitesurf with us is a real experience. Lessons will include every detail of this nature-driven sport of kitesurfing. Guaranteed learning success !!!!

Crystal clear water, dreamlike landscapes, secluded bays, picturesque villages, and last but not least the reliable thermal winds that blow on the island from May to October. All of this makes Viganj a great windsurfing spot
