Before the 1990s noone could have thought that exotic surf scenes would ever appear on a place like Tinos, the holy island of the Virgin Mary. During the past 10 years, little by little, surfers seen on Tinos multiplied fast, so the idea for a surfboard rentals & surfing tuition project seemed realistic.
The Tinos surf lessons project, started by local surfer John Vidalis, is one of the very first in Greece and the first in the Cyclades. It offers surf tuition, surfboard rentals for every level, and also bodyboard, kayak, canoe and skimboard rentals.
The island of Tinos, with a multitude of breaks around its coast (with Kolibitrha bay being the best and also the base of operations for the project), an unmatched natural beauty away from hectic tourist crowds, unspoilt folkore and fast access from the ports of Athens, Tinos is now a great surfing holiday destination.
