Kitecamp with Michi in the Seahorse Bay from June 2nd until June 9th

Sun, perfect temperature, good wind potential, a lot of space in the lagoon and a chilled atmosphere- these are the basic conditions for KiteWorldWide and Ibi & Friends’ kitesurfing events in the Seahorse Bay.

Together on the water, having fun, special training with the pro´s (freestyle / jumping), spot guiding, photo and video shoots, (with the pros at your side and the very latest 2014 BEST kite material for testing).

This year Michael Schitzhofer will be by your side to pimp your performance. From the Austrian lake Neusiedlersee, he decided to dicover all the waters around the world. He would love to share his knowledge, which he aquired by participating in every possible contest there is, with you.

The camp does not function as a teaching marathon, but it is rather a baseline to elaborate on your personal pros and cons on the water. Depending on your level, the pros will stand by your side with helpful advice, accompanied by the competence of our Austrian team member. With a good intuition of improving your skills, he will help you to freeride in style.

After the performance we will all move to the enjoyable part of the evening of getting to know each other and have fun.

Doesn’t that sound awesome? Book your kitesurf experience now! The camp in the Seahorse Bay takes place from June 2nd until June 9th! No worries, in case you have to miss out on this camp, you will have another chance to freestyle with Michi: We are planning more trips with Mike in Montenegro and Brazil.

Kite Club Seahorse Bay

Our brand-new Kite Club is located right at the spot on a private lot of about 1400 m². Along with the kite villa, there’s a large garden which is kept nice and neat with direct access to the beach and the spot. You’ll find showers here along with hammocks and other chilling possibilities which are perfect for relaxing after kite sessions.

Right next to the entrance to the beach is our storage area where you can store your own arge. It also offers the perfect atmosphere for hanging out with people just like you. In the evenings, you can chill at the fire ring in the garden after a long day of kitesurfing having a chat about your days’ experiences.

The focal point of the Kite Club is spread out over 200 m²: The kite villa with the large terrace around it.

Alternative activities

Included in the package price

Excursion to Hurghada

You’ll head to old Hurghada with a local that shows you how to experience Egypt for real. You can snatch up some good deals at a bazaar and try some local delicacies. Afterwards we will have some drinks at a cocktail bar with live music.

Excursion to El Gouna

Our second evening excursion goes to the tourist city El Gouna. An entirely different evening awaits you. For lots of regular tourists this is paradise – you should at least see it once, just to be able to talk about it. We’ll show you the best restaurants and bars in the marina. You can smoke shisha, chill out and party it up.

Barbecue and bonfire night

One night a week is set aside for the Kite Club Seahorse Bay. We fire up the Barbecue and the bonfire to chill and feast in the garden while chatting about the latest kites and moves. Afterwards we hang around at the oriental corner, smoking a shisha and getting into the right mood for the upcoming days.

Climbing wall

At the back of the Kite Club you will find a brand new three meters’ high climbing wall where you can try out several parcours. Climbing is a perfect addition to kitesurfing and is a lot of fun as well.

Beach volleyball

On the beach of the Kite Club we can set up a fully equipped beach volleyball field where you can challenge the other guests for a nice match.


Stand-up-paddling is the fitness trend of the last years. No matter if you watch the big wave surfers on Hawaii or you go to the flat water river around the corner, SUPs are everywhere.

We have four sets of SUPs at the Kite Club which you can use at any time.


KiteWorldWide guests can get snorkeling gear for free at our Kite Club and explore the close reef.

Activities you can book at sight (additional charges)


The Red Sea is also known for its beautiful diving areas and offers the possibility to experience astonishing diving or snorkeling day trips. Diving excursions as well as lessons are available at the diving school, which is only five minutes away. It has its own diving boats starting right in front of the Calimera.

Quad biking tours

With a bunch of horsepower under your buttocks and in small groups including a local guide you will be cruising through the desert of Egypt. It is up to you whether you want to gently cruise around and enjoy the beautiful landscape or taking those machines to top speed drifting through the soft sand.

Excursion to Luxor or Cairo

Day trips to Luxor and its ‘Valley of the Kings and Thebes’ or to Cairo are recommended and totally worth the drive. You should just keep in mind that those excursions will take a whole day so you might want to check the wind prior to the booking.

There’s tons more to experience. The team at Kite Club Seahorse Bay would love to help you find just the right activities for you!
