Surfers flock to beaches in Turkey’s Marmaris district
Taking advantage of the 50-kilometer winds, which locals call the “anchovy storm,” that lasted for about an hour, kitesurfers and people had a merry time at the beaches while surfboarding over the Aegean Sea.
“Fantastic sports and fantastic scene. I have posted videos of surfers on social media,” said Atıl Erten, a 23-year-old local.
Annually between Feb. 2 and 5, the fish migrate from the Black Sea to the Marmara Sea.
During this period, some strong winds with a speed of 50 kilometers blow over the Aegean Sea. Fishermen call these winds “anchovy storm.”
