The surf needs strong winds (5-6 beaufort upwards) from the north/nortwest. In summer, June, July and August you can forget it! It is definitely rare to see waves.
In winter it is a bit different and it can be cold, therefore i advise a fullsuit (3mm) and because the waves are not very powerful a longboard, minimalibu or big fish.
Its a really nice beach, with a relaxed atmosphaere and very good tavern. On the island there is almost no criminality so you dont have to worry about anything being stolen.
My brother and i, we are from Skiathos and are the only local surfers there, so if you need any further information just write us an e-mail gkapone(at)yahoo.de. We also some really nice rooms and apartments for rent...
