What do you know about surfing? And what about the surf stations in Sochi? If you are interested in information on where to catch a wave on the coast of Greater Sochi, then my article today will be very useful to you.
Recently, surfing from an exotic discipline is gradually turning into an accessible and popular sport. Last year I was lucky to join this lesson, read about it here: Sochi, beach, surfing: how I caught a wave in Khost.
This summer, the interest of tourists in this activity can be seen with the naked eye: the entire water surface along the coast in the evenings is dotted with people on the boards. And it seems to me that these are only flowers. Everyone who has joined this sport assures: once making friends with the surf, you will forever fall in love with the sea, wind and speed.
Therefore, if you have not tried yourself in this business, but really want, or vice versa - already in the subject and looking for places where you can hone your skills, then this review is just for you! <
No matter what you say, there are good waves in Sochi. And for the last two years, on the Sochi coast, this whole topic has been actively gaining momentum: new spots are being tested, old ones are being rethought, surf stations, rentals and schools for beginners are opening. Classic surfing, SUP-surfing, windsurfing, wakesurfing - choose what you like and catch the wave!
At the moment, there are at least a dozen popular spots on the coast, and I will briefly tell you about some of them.
I'll start from the end, more precisely from the tip of the Sochi coast - from Imeretinka.
Not far from the Olympic Park, in the area of the state farm Russia, there is a popular spot for kiters. Due to the fact that once upon a time there was a pig farm on this place, this spot is jokingly called "Pigsty". The southerly wind direction, clean frontal breeze, strong surf and the bottom steeply sinking into the depths - these are the characteristics of this spot.
The sea in Imeretinka does not always please with big waves. But even for calm waters there is a solution: SUP-surfing.
Boards for it can be rented on the beach of the Bridge Resort Hotel, and if you are a beginner, use the services of experienced instructors.
In Imeretinka, on the beach along the Olympic embankment, there are already several points where you can rent a SUP-surf.
Yachting is a powerful and dynamically growing industry for the production, operation and maintenance of yachts.
The main elements shaping the urban planning situation on the recreationally oriented coast are yachting infrastructure objects - marinas and resort-tourist complexes.
1. Harbor and base for pleasure and sports boats. (Explanatory marine dictionary - Moscow, Astrel, AST 2006, p. 371)
2. Marina (yacht port) is a water area protected from adverse weather conditions with a coastal area, equipped with berths for mooring ships, as well as main buildings, structures and equipment that provide both safe parking, storage and maintenance of pleasure and sports boats, and services for their crews ... (preliminary national standard "Services to the public. YACHT PORTS. Minimum requirements. PNST 153-2016/ISO 13687: 2014)
Marina is the backbone of coastal coastal passenger traffic. In addition, they increase the urban planning security of the territories and the capabilities of the border service.
Yachting infrastructure - facilities, structures and services that ensure the production, operation and maintenance of yachts. The main structural element of the yachting infrastructure is the marinas.
A modern yacht is a motor or sailing, technically highly equipped and environmentally friendly vessel designed for recreation, sports and entertainment.
A cruising yacht is a motor or sailing-motor yacht that has cabins with berths, a bathroom, and other equipment that provides the possibility of long-term stay of people on board, which does not require daily launching/ascent to the water and mandatory storage on land ...
A modern marina is not just a yacht dock. This is a complex engineering structure that provides all the opportunities for the development of water sports - sailing, water-powered, water-skiing, etc., sea tourism and alongshore passenger traffic. In addition, marinas are becoming city-forming objects - catalysts for urbanization, development centers (points of growth) for all types of tourism, a venue for various sports and cultural events.
Therefore, a modern marina is a vivid example of complex-purpose facilities open to the public and attractive to people of various interests and preferences, i.e. public space in the truest sense.
Let's briefly tell you what to see in Sochi on your own and where to go with the whole family. This resort is chosen not only for the beach holiday. In the city and its environs there are a lot of various entertainments, attractions, natural objects, parks. Even just a walk along the embankment or in the center will be interesting and informative.
When people talk about Sochi, they mean not only the settlement with the same name. This concept often includes other cities in the region, from Tuapse to the very border of Abkhazia. This territory stretches along the sea coast for 145 km. And thanks to the well-developed tourist infrastructure, each guest will find something to their liking. We offer photos with names and descriptions of the most interesting places.
We recommend the following services:
The port by the sea is visible from afar, as the main building is crowned with a sharp, high spire. The architecture of the station is reminiscent of the Admiralty in St. Petersburg. On the pier it will seem that you have already been here, since it was in this place that the scenes for the famous film "The Diamond Arm" were filmed.
You can just admire the most beautiful yachts and cruise ships from the pier, but you should book a ticket for one of them and go on a short trip along the Black Sea coast. Then you will immediately see other settlements - Adler, Khost, Matsesta, etc. Also, longer flights to Italy, Georgia, Turkey, Bulgaria and Greece depart from this port.
One of the most famous landmarks of Sochi, where a large number of interesting events take place in summer and winter. Here pop celebrities, both domestic and foreign, perform. Every year the theater hosts the Kinotavr film festival, organizes the Summer Cup of KVN teams and other programs.
The building itself is also of interest. It was built back in the 30s of the last century, when the country's leadership decided to create a real developed elite resort on the Black Sea coast. And the main building, in which grandiose performances and events were to take place, was erected in the center of the resort capital. The neoclassical architectural style was chosen for its design. The entire facade is surrounded by snow-white columns.
