Photographer's Note

Ala蓷tı township is part of the district of ネşme within Turkey's İzmir Province. The town of Ala蓷tı is located on the "narrow waist" ネşme Peninsula traces in its extremity. It is at the center of a corridor where the winds from the north to the south and in the reverse direction abound. The dominant summer wind of poyraz allows Ala蓷tı to "breathe", while lodos wind which blows more frequently in winter keeps the climate mild.

The number of windy days in Ala蓷tı (330 days a year) is well above the average in Turkey. This abundance of these winds is the motive that brought Ala蓷tı to the position of one of the foremost windsurfing centers of the world.
