Re: Speculating on a possible surf spot - This is on the Black Sea coast, not far from Istanbul (you've probably already figured this out.)

Any of you out there know of the surf potential in the Black Sea? Looks to get pretty ok in Bulgaria judging by Wannasurfs Bulgaria page. Would imagine that it would get pretty good in the fall as cold fronts march in.

How about the Kas/Kalkan area?

I am moving to Istanbul, want to know whether to bring boards. Do any of you guys who are living in Istanbul ever take trips out to Cyprus? Is this a complete ball-ache, or an easy in-and-out trip that I can do on the cheap for the weekend from Istanbul? Anyone? Anyone?

Speculating on a possible surf spot - Hi,
I am a Turk began surfing in San Diego, California, and on my way back to Turkiye, whose wishing to continue this great lifestyle no matter where I am. I began looking at some satellite pictures remotely from California, and came across the following picture. http://www.panoramio.com/photo/5854806
The picture has a wave breaking nicely, left rideable, with an offshore breeze (possibly a SW wind) causing it to hold its form. The place is called Sogan Adasi, so any information from the area would be greatly appreciated.
Regards,
