Photographer's Note

This shot was taken at Kouros Surf Club,in Anavysos!Anavyssos is a sea-side settlement on the south-east part of Attica prefecture, very close to Athens. It is an area with a history of centuries, since it is inextricably related to ancient Anaflystos, as the archaeological findings reveal. However, the most important finding may be the funerary statue of Kouros Kroisos, ca 530 B.C., which is considered by the historians to be the most artistic Kouros ever made, since this is the only Kouros showing motion (stride). This is also where KOUROS Club took its name from.
Anavyssos bay is a particularly popular destination for the windsurf fans, since the weather conditions allow windsurfers to enjoy their favorite sport throughout the year, due to the strong south winds during winter and the winds that start in spring and last until autumn, creating the ideal preconditions for freeride, freestyle, wave, race and slalom windsurfing.
