It’s cold. It’s rainy. It’s foggy. From time to time you can see some snowflakes but most of the time: it’s rainy. That’s how a typical “German winter” and New Year’s Eve look like. Even though we are able to enjoy some of the last sunny days the cold days are about to hit us and so is the fall and the winter. So quite normal that everyone dreams of everlasting summer, isn’t it! If you can’t simply wait until next summer to come, how about spending your New Years Eve somewhere else, far away from home, kitesurfing in an exotic destination?
Here is a perfect selection of our different medium- and long-haul destinations for New Year’s Eve with their availabilities and more detailed below.
|Destination||Availability at the end of the year|
|Cape Verde: Sal||In our KiteWorldWide House on Sal, only five rooms are still available from December 19th until the beginning of January. You might want to hurry!|
|South Africa: Cape Town||In our KiteWorldWide Mansion in Cape Town, only a few of our Cosy Rooms and Loft Roms are still available in all of December. Starting in January, there are more availabilities in different rooms as well.|

|Morocco: Essaouira||Our beautiful traditional Moroccan townhouses (known as Riads) in Essaouira are nearly all booked; only three rooms remain available over different time intervals.|

Thus, almost all rooms in our certified ecologically sustainable Red Monkey Lodge are already booked until the end of January, so there is no time to be wasted.|

Egypt: Seahorse Bay – Kitesurfing on New Years Eve
+ 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
+ For those who want to push their level with a group: Kiteboarding Events Egypt
Thanks to the large shallow-water area and the stable wind direction the spot is perfect for beginners. There is enough space in the lagoon as the number of students and storage slots are limited. This is why neither beginners nor advanced kiters feel restricted. Furthermore, Ibi & Friends always create a very familiar atmosphere. That’s why it is always so much fun to go kitesurfing on the water during the day and to relax with your new friends at night. Going to the Seahorse Bay for us always feels like feels going home.
Morocco: Dakhla – Kitesurfing on New Years Eve
+ Stunning Kite Villa Camp exclusively for Kiteworldwide
+ Perfect wind conditions from March to October, good wind from November to February
Directly at the KiteWorldWide Villa Camp, you will find the kite lagoon, which makes flat-water fans hearts beat faster and enables beginners to quickly make their first meters on the board. The spot is influenced by the tide, yet the low tide still leaves the lagoon with sufficient water and space for everyone. Depending on the tidal level you will have a 150m to 300m wide shallow water area just in front of the KiteWorldWide center. The ground is sandy without any disturbing rocks or corals. The wind blows constantly and side-shore from the left. Thus, this spot offers the maximum of safety for beginners and ideal conditions for freestylers.

The selection of kitesurfing spots on Sal is very varied. There are spots with side-onshore wind and small waves for intermediates and beautiful wave spots, but due to the offshore wind only for experts recommended. In January 2019 our big Testival with the KITE BUDDY will take place here on Cape Verde. In accordance with the slogan “We do what we can’t, worldwide” boards and kites from Core Kiteboarding, Flysurfer, Eleveight, and Levitaz will be tested. Everything is possible, nothing has to be. Everybody learns the tricks at their own pace and gets support from the guys on site.

+ Unbelievable variety of spots
+ Numerous possibilities for activities and trips
+ Great community feeling at the Mansion
+ Exclusively at KiteWorldWide
Right outside the door, you will find the Sunset Beach, a spot that would actually be enough to discover in a two-week kite trip. Depending on the swell, there are waves from one to several meters. Unlike St. Peter Ording with its “choppy chaos” you will find nice, long, “glassy-flats” in between the waves. So you can really take a run for the next wave kicker.

In Kalpitiya there is plenty of wind and up to 30 degrees in winter. During the day you can take the free boat shuttle to the opposite side of the lagoon. The wind comes in the period from the northeast with an average of 20 knots. This is ideal for beginners and intermediates who are learning to kitesurf. Due to the very small tidal range of only half a meter, the lagoon is always kiteable. If you want to wake up with a great view over the lagoon or swim in the pool, this is the place for you.

About 100-150 meters before the beach the waves break in front of the shallow area. There is enough space on the water for everyone. Should the wind need a break, you can just grab a surfboard and go surfing. Alternatively, you can also explore the historic old town of Essaouira and let yourself drift in the colorful world of Morocco.
