Interestingly, Asproulianoi is not only a pleasant resort on the North coast of Chania prefecture but is becoming known as a kitesurfing center because of the high number of days where a wind gets up with some velocity. For the un-initiated, kitesurfing is the latest water sport which appeals to today's generation. Kitesurfers use a variety of small "boards" from a snowboard to a surfboard or wakeboard. These boards are usually one to two metres in length. Where do the strong winds come in? To kitesurf you need a mini parachute, referred to as a stunt kite.
