Kitesurf Accommodation Lessons in Egypt


Kitesurf Egypt sunsetDahab, Egypt
With its fantastic wind stats (over 280 days of wind above a force 4 a year), and some of the flattest water you could ever imagine, the kitesurf accommodation lessons in Egypt are incredible.  Combine that with warm turquoise water and lots of space for everyone, and it truly is a great kitesurfing spot.

Dahab is a great all year round destination (the Winter months still average 20-25 degrees!).
Best winds: March to November.
Wind Conditions: consistent 15-25 knots.
Water Temp: 24-28 C in the Summer shorts/bikini, shorty wetsuit October to May.
Water Type: Mainly flat water. Wind blown chop at Centre 4. Swell further out to sea (past Napoleon reef).
Weather: 20-38 degrees all year. Don’t be afraid of the heat in July and August (it is extremely dry here and windy so does not feel humid and sticky like tropical destinations).
Nightlife: Lovely local and international restaurants, chilled cafes and a few dance bars.
Local Tip: Have small change handy for tips – its not expected but appreciated. US$ are widely accepted and have the best exchange rate here. ATM’s and money exchange machines readily available.

Kitesurfing Lessons

There are two main kite locations in Dahab. The first is a shallow, really flat-water lagoon which is perfect for beginners as the instructor can stand right next to you. It is also good for intermediates and advanced riders to practise their skills in the mirror flat water.

Or the new kite area (Centre 4) has constant cross shore winds and plenty of water space for all levels of kitesurfers (beginner courses are also run here). There is a sandy beach to land on downwind too, which also catches the beginners!

The kitesurfing beginner course is €290 Euros ($389 approx). This price includes all equipment, insurance for the equipment and 10 hours of instruction – 2 hours per day). Helmets with walkie talkie radios are used so you can always hear your instructor. The first lesson covers safety and flying the land based kites to practise kite control. The second lesson is body-dragging through the water, then its time to try to get onto the board (lesson 3). Lesson 4 and 5 are based on the waterstart and riding. Multi lingual instructors available but English is mainly spoken.

You can kite in the main windsurf lagoon before 9am. So you can start in the kite lagoon and kite out and round behind the sand spit for the most constant flat water. If you wish you can venture past the reef into the swell (that rolls down the Gulf of Aqaba). Then after 9am you can head downwind to Centre 4. A superb down wind trip.  If you are unsure of where to go, downwind trips can be organised through the kite centre.
