SurfingWyspa Pag > Pag
The researches conducted in the period from 1998 to 2001, showed that winds blow 350 days in a year in Pag. Therefore, the bay of Pag is a real paradise for the windsurfers. At the same time safe and challenging. In summer afternoons, usually blows light wind called Maestral, suitable for the surfers which do not incline to madcap stunts. In late afternoons, Maestral grows stronger so one can surf faster and even make a whole trip around the bay. Burin is the wind blowing from the north, stronger than Maestral, somewhat colder and therefore more pleasant during summer, and allows faster windsurfing. When Maestral or Levant (east wind) blows, it is best to begin windsurfing from the main beach or Bašaca. However, when Burin blows, then it is best to start from Vodice or the cape St. Nikola towards Pag. Windsurfers have at their disposal many beautiful beaches for making a break. We advise avoiding the channel that joins the bay of Pag with the channel of Velebit because it is hard to get out of that area (even to the more experienced surfers) in cases of sudden storm, bora or tramontana.
