A big flat-water lagoon is waiting for you! A lot of space to learn and practice new tricks. In Egypt, nobody has to fear that there won’t be enough space in the lagoon since we are limiting the number of guests. In April the temperatures in Egypt can go up to 20 degrees. On the water, you should still be wearing a thin long wetsuit, though, since the water temperature is around 18 degrees. The daredevils amongst you can also put a shorty in their suitcase ;).

Djerba is the perfect kitesurf destination for beginners and intermediates, as the vast lagoon will offer plenty of space to practice. Djerba is also ideally suited for family trips; our KiteWorldWide Kite Village features spacious family apartments, as well as a pool for kids to play around and swim in. There are also a variety of other fun activities on this island. But of course, kitesurfing is still the #1 focus. Our massive lagoon on Djerba is quite shallow and stays warm all year – you might want to bring a wetsuit just in case but chances are, you won’t need it.

Get out the board shorts and bikinis! That’s the motto for Sal in April. With an average of 25 degrees air temperature and 20 degrees in the water you really don’t need a wetsuit, even if you are usually feeling chilly a shorty will definitely do. The Kite Beach on Sal with side onshore wind and small waves is for intermediate and advanced kite surfers. Even though Sal is not a picture-perfect spot for beginners, because the water is not really shallow, but if you learn to ride here, you can ride everywhere. For the wave lovers, there are a couple of spots on the island of Sal. First and foremost the popular waves of Ponta Preta that most of you have seen in kite surf movies before. Speaking of movies: your GoPro videos will be even better now. We have a GoPro Teamer in Sal for you that will help to produce and edit your very own holiday memories.
