El Gouna is the perfect place to learn kitesurfing or to improve your skills. The spot is just made for kitesurfing, especially for beginners. A huge flat water area with turquoise colored water is definitely a kitesurfing paradise. The shallow and flat water lagoon is almost 5km² wide, making it the biggest spot in El Gouna and one of the biggest in Egypt. Even during low tide we have a lot of water to train with you. Constant and steady wind in combination with turquoise blue water and sandy beach, make our spot to the perfect destination for learning and training kitesurfing. - over 70% windy days in a year, with more than 4-Beaufort - Temperatures starting from 25°C - you can ride without a neoprene more than 6 months a year
