Turkey is a kitesurfers dream with conditions suited to all levels. The Aegean coast benefits from constant thermal winds giving you the opportunity for up to six hours riding time per day! The coast is dotted with warm, shallow waters ideal for fast and safe progression. Whether you’re a beginner, or even an advanced rider wanting to push yourself, you’ll score some of your best sessions at our secret uncrowded spots. The kite sizes we use most range between 9-13m and most people find the water warm enough to go without a wetsuit. You might want to bring a 2-3mm shortie in case you experience the cold, but our guests usually just stay in their board shorts!

The Dalaman is the beautiful area situated in the Southwest coast of Turkey with access to the Aegean Sea. The area is filled with lots of great restaurants, bars & active nightlife. We'll be exploring the ‘Bodrum Area‘ which is a safe, politically untouched part of Turkey. It's loved for the thermal wind and perfect geographical beach formations which create an ideal kitesurf haven. Our surfari will take you to well known beaches as well as uncharted spots with barely any other kiteboarders in sight. They’ll be plenty of opportunity for other activities along the way for those still want for more after a full day on the water.
'Keep it simple' is our mantra and it’s what we do best.......
We’ll collect you at Dalaman Airport and take you to your hotel for a full briefing of our exciting trip ahead. If we get time we'll of course head to the water too.... and so begins our adventure....
Our surfaris are aimed at kiteboarders of all levels who want to progress as much as they can. If you need equipment or training we’ll fast track all the required necessary arrangements and hit the water as soon as possible.
During the 9 day adventure, we’ll stay at three of our favourite 'Out of The Way' boutique hotels. We'll visit at least six beaches & warm water spots around them.
We plan a few scheduled trips per season. If our planned dates don't suit you but you have a group already (min. 8 people or more), we can try and organise a bespoke trip for you!
Day 1 - 3
We’ll be kiting at several spots around Gokova during the first couple of days. There is a great beach 10 minutes from the hotel where we can acclimatise and get to know our water skills.

Our hotels are hand picked for their character and charm - each has its own unique selling point. All hotels have great chill out areas and the rooms have soft comfy beds. You will be able to grab a sundowner drink or two from their well stocked bars before heading out to a local restaurant or on to a party! Each hotel offers a fantastic traditional Turkish breakfast full of fresh fruits, breads and homemade jams. If you are really hungry you can add menemen to your meal which is a made to order vegetable and scrambled egg recipe! Some hotels may have a swimming pool for those who are interested in immersing themselves in even more water.
