One of the most attractive surfing destinations on the Mediterranean coast is Velika Plazha (eng. Long Beach) in Ulcinj. Many experienced kiters from different countries have expressed their belief in the great potential of this beach.The adrenalin-filled ride on the surfboard, with the wind in its full power is a thrilling experience either on Velika Plazha or the nearby Ada Bojana.
Kitesurfing is a relatively new extreme sport, and it combines elements of windsurfing, snowboarding, wakeboarding, paragliding and gymnastics. It involves the so-called „water riding“, using a smaller (7-15m2), specially designed kite. Employing only wind energy/power and the management technique, you could surf for hours across the vast space of Velika Plazha, as long as there is (enough) wind.
Wind speed of at least 5-10 m/s is necessary, and that is exactly the speed of mistral which is present at Velika Plazha almost every day.The wind, along with the vastness of the sandy beach and the big number of sunny days per year represent an ideal combination for kitesurfing. That’s the reason Velika Plazha is among the most popular destinations for fans of this particular sport. During the season, which usually lasts from May to October, Velika Plazha is visited by a large number of kitesurfers from around the globe.
