It comes at no surprise that water sports are quite popular in Tel Aviv. The abundance of sunny days, proximity to the Mediterranean Sea, and a general lack of football player-sized athletes has generated an interest in windsurfing, swimming and kayaking, which has soared due to recent Olympic success.rnThe newest marine sports trend of kitesurfing, which combines surfing with a parachute-like kite, has come to dominate the coastline throughout the country. Surf Point, which already serves as the centre for windsurfing in Tel Aviv, has emerged as a local authority on kitesurfing as well, and offers classes and equipment rentals for all those seeking to try this latest extreme sport entry. rnLocated right in the southern edge of the Tel Aviv beach strip, Surf Point is a one-stop shop for the range of watersports available on the Tel Aviv coast. They also offer diving excursions and courses as well, though the area offers fairly limited quality destinations.
