We went there and booked the beginner course with 3x2 hours windsurfing. Anissa and Angelos were patient instructors with high expertise and a friendly manner. We would just come back to Greece only to meet those cool Dudes again. Thank you Angelos for having us at your cozy place with excellent coffee and the best greek salad of our 14... More

Went here with my girlfriend and rented SUP board and windsurfing, had a great time. After that, we had lunch and it was the best Greek salad I've had so far on our trip, I can really recommend this place. The staff is also friendly and helpful. Would definitely return here if we come to Naxos again.

If you are the type of person that seeks for adventure during holidays then Plaka Watersports is a must. Take advantage of the constant wind of Naxos to learn windsurfing with the experts' guidance, or if you are already experienced, practice your own skills (you 'll find gear to rent in perfect condition). Moreover, for more fun and group activities... More

My daughters did an introductory windsurfing course here in July 2016 with Jerome and had a great time. The facilities were really good and the staff friendly and helpful. Jerome was a fantastic teacher and my girls got on really well and have continued to windsurf in Scotland as a result. Great result! We also did a "sofa" ride which... More

we spent 2 weeks in plaka watersport center and it was totally unforgettable time. The staff is super helpful, friendly and cool. Service is nr.1, they really care for nice atmosphere and profesionality. The windsurf equipment was up to date and when the wind was not there they were amusing us with other water sports and bike trips. Thanks again!

About this ridiculous review by ydilmac I was astonished that someone would go to a surf station to order a cocktail before attempting to windsurf. I think it is a pity that the humor of the Dutch windsurf instructor got lost on them. The pirate says: "Arrrrrh, pity me lady!" Children on the beach seamed to bother them too, so... More
