Pantelis Pap, G. Maritsis, D. Malliopoulos, K. Papagalanis, M. Papagalanis, Ilias Zark, Christaras F., Titos G., D. Mpourtzilas, Ch. Tsitsimelis, S. Fragkias, Christos Man, G. Moshos, D. Mitroulias, Marios N., Jason H., Renate L., A. Kolliopoulos are the names of the local Patras freestyle crew. They filmed world class freestyle action during the 2014 season, from Spinloops to Grubbies, Spock variations, crazy Flakas with several rotations, switch Chachos, Konos and more. Great to see that pure amateurs can reach such a high level. We are impressed!
Most of the clips are filmed at Faros Drepano, the famous spot at the lighthouse located 16 km east of Patras downtown. Patras is well known as many travelers arrive by ferry from Italy in that town. A little peninsula forms the perfect freestyle spot inside the Golf of Patras. It just needs westerly winds and you can sail from choppy conditions to complete flat water. When driving from Patras to Athens next time you can take the exit at Arachovitika for a quick session, when westerly winds are on.
A few clips are filmed at Tsimari and Kavourotripa. Both spots are located on the northern Greek main land. It needs a crossing of the Golf of Patras over the 2 km long bridge from Rio to Antirrio.
