Kitesurfing in May

You want to go kiting in another month? Here you will find the best spots for kitesurfing in the…


In the joyful month of May, life slowly takes place outside again! The weekends will (hopefully) be spent at the coast with BBQ in the evening and the successful kite day will be discussed over beer and sausage. Nevertheless, May is also a good month for a kite trip. Especially the southern European destinations have awakened from their winter sleep and attract with lots of wind and warm temperatures. Those who prefer it exotic should take a look at Sri Lanka or Morocco, both countries where you can kite with a touch of tropical vibe in May.

Egypt: Seahorse Bay – Kitesurfing in May

Our longtime partners and friends of Ibi & Friends have discovered and developed Seahorse Bay between Hurghada and El Gouna for kiters. At this great spot with shallow water lagoon, there are three things that we have never found before in Egypt: 1. accommodation directly at the spot! 2. limited places for more space on the water! The number of kite students and places for the kite storage are limited, so that all guests always have enough space on the water. If you want to prepare first, check out our Kitesurfing Learning Video Tutorials. And 3. kiting also at low tide! There is a “pool” in the sea, which remains even at low tide and on which a handful of kitesurfers can kite to any tide level.

+ Family-like atmosphere at Ibi & Friends Kiteclub Seahorse Bay
+ Living right at the spot, without TukTuk rides
+ Complete packages for beginner, intermediate and advanced
+ Limited availability for more space on the water

In the tranquil village, which in contrast to the spots in the north and east of the island was largely spared from the package tourism masses, there are many small taverns, typical restaurants, and very hospitable locals.
