The Wind

The Windsurf Station is the most southern windsurfing school/rental in Istria . Do to its favoured position we enjoy the best wind conditions in this area.

Bora ,a north- east gusty wind might be very severe and unexpected. It causes  small choppy waves up to 1m waves on the reef not far away from us. Bora is the most often wind in this area and it blows on shore if you are starting from our spot.

The south- east "Jugo" wind  (Scirocco) causes higher waves ,up to 3m on the reef  in front of our spot . It blows across the Adriatic when a cyclone develops over the Adriatic area. It brings clouds and rain  .There is a possibility of the so called dry Jugo, when it blows for a couple of days without bringing rain. Unlike Bura, Jugo is a constant wind that gradually gains strength . This wind direction is also on shore on Rt Kamenjak and if you are starting from this area the conditions are absolutely safe for windsurfing.

Mistral is a “benevolent”, a friendly wind looked forward by especially sailors and all those who enjoy the summer season under its breeze. Mistral is a daily wind blowing from the northwest and created by the differences in temperature between the mainland and sea. It is fairly frequent from spring to autumn and strongest in July and August.

It usually starts blowing around 9 or 10 in the morning, reaches its highest strength in the afternoon and fades at sunset. It's a perfect wind for freeriders and beginners .During those hot summer days the water surface is absolutely flat like on a lake . The mistral is never stronger than 16 knots so big sails and boards are suggested
