kite surfing

Kite surfing is easy to start and a great experience. Don't be put off by video shots of professionals doing amazing stunts.  The basics are much easier and you will be able to learn them in just a few days and then you will be able to enjoy the sport from the very first day of your next holiday.

Marsa Alam is a perfect location for it.  Why ?


1. Relatively flat seas but with a high proportion of windy days each month and especially from March to May and from July to September.

2. The Red Sea has the warmest average water temperatures of any open water sea in the world, great in summer and still very mild in winter.  

3. Beautiful reefs form some great natural barriers to create perfect flat water within large lagoons.

4. Between 360 and 365 days of sunshine a year with an average of almost 11 hours a day.  

5. Crystal clear waters allow you to judge the sea depth.  

6. Enjoy the fantastic background of the immense Sahara desert.
