While Hawaii is the widely-accepted mecca of downwinding, it’s far from the only place to catch a few glides. For our friends living in Europe, one of their downwinding havens is the beautiful country of Greece. Check out this footage–complete with real-time speeds–from paddler Alex Prapas’ recent downwinder on the Xamoliko Run.


Watch: More Greek glides.

Watch: Howling downwind run off the coast of Athens, Greece.
