Well there is someone... here I am!

You can go out in Marmara Sea with South wind, or Black Sea with North wind. In summer they rent some "really old stuff" in some club near CaddeBostan, in winter everything is closed in Istanbul. Most important club is Mimar Sinan, in Buyukcekmece.
You need your own material, that's the only way to go out.
And to buy it (if u do not import from foreign country) u need to go in Alacati, close to Izmir.
Welcome on board!

Luca

I have 100 Freestyle and 83 Wave. I am 93 Kg!!! :o
Big sail 6.2 small 4.5. Most used 5.4. Others: 5.3, 5.0

In Summer I go to Datca, I do not like Alacati, Bodrum is nice but expensive.

In Istanbul I survive and sometimes I go to Black Sea, now it's too cold!
In Mimar Sinan they rent but are really expensive, 1 h 100 tl, crazy!
And it's full of race/slalom/freeride and shit like this :lol:

No jump, no fun.

Luca

p.s: just have noticed that my message is full of ''hopes'' :)))) LOL

What? Ahahhahahah :D
You can not jibe without ask permission to 1000000 other surfers.
Alacati "WAS" the best spot in Turkey.
And I did not talk about the smell of XXX, do you know what I mean? If not, please reply me and I will write you.
Have fun,
Luca

I am not a surfer, I could not return when I tried to use it :) but we had a tent to stay there, it was a nice memory in my mind ...

I just like viewing many of them in Alacati bay from the coast:)

Hi!
Are you all still in Istanbul? Just moved here two months ago and would be nice to meet some like-minded people who love surfing and who can tell me the best spots ;-) You can email me also ([email protected])
Regards
