Surfing in Makri Gialos !!!! - In the summer is the spot not so good and there are much people!!!!but in the winter it is verry good !!!!there are waves every day!!!!the waves have every third day good conditions!!!!and there are no people in the water!!!there is one local, and he is very friendly!!!!the best thing is that the spot is an bay, so the wind do not destroy the waves!!! only when its offshore and that is good because the waves becomme hollow and slow!!!!try that spot!!!!but plaes dont burst the friendly, greece mood!!!!!
