Our partner Egypt Kitesurfing School is equipped with the latest equipment from Naish, Underground and X-Shooter. There is a wide range of kitesurfing equipment, from pure beginner equipment to the most advanced gear available on the market.
All kitesurfing courses are conducted in the upwind training bay where the lagoon is knee to chest deep and the large area allows you long runs before getting into too deep water. As you progress you can blast out to the sand bar 300 meters off shore, walk upwind if needed, and come back in again. This is the best spot in the area for kiteboarding. You can use the compressor to pump your kite and launch just outside the Kiteboarding Center, where there is a closed off sandy area for launching and landing where swimmers are not allowed. Then it's an easy ride, slightly upwind to the sand bar, where you can play in the flat water and even jump the sandbar when the tide is a bit higher.
