While Hawaii may get the most recognition as a downwinding mecca, Greece certainly deserves its share of the spotlight.

In this video, paddler Dimitris Komninos gives us a taste of the Greek goodness with a whipping run along the South Evia coastline.


Another prime example of Greece’s perfect downwind runs.
