We’re more than happy to announce the first Kiteboarding Events in our Seahorse Bay in Egypt. On the agenda is kitesurfing, kitesurfing and kitesurfing!

The experienced Kiteboarding Events team with its VDWS licensed instructors awaits you on-site. They’ll support you wherever they can, give you lessons in Self Rescue or on the material itself and help you to level up with their intensive training concept. Furthermore a huge material pool awaits you, with the latest kites and boards of different brands. You can test them all and find your favourite kite and board!

The spot right on the Kiteclub’s doorstep offers a lot of space on the water, thanks to a limited amount of students and participants. Tuk Tuk rides, regular transfer hours or missed wind have gone the way of the dodo. It’s even possible to kite at low tide for experienced kite-surfers, thanks to the ‘pool’ in the ocean.

You’ll spend your evenings in the familiar and laid-back Kiteclub right at the spot and enjoy the fine food that Ibi & Friends offer. During the event a barbecue with a bonfire and a ‘Oriental Night’ with Shishas awaits you. But that’s not all – there are also trips to Hurghada and El Gouna organized by the Kiteboarding Events Team. If you’ll need a break from kitesurfing, simply grab a SUP or some snorkelling gear and head out to discover the ocean and its beauty! Have Fun!

Kitesurfing at Seahorse Bay

Spot

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.

The shallow lagoon with its sandy bottom, joined with the fact that there are more than 70% windy days a year provides ideal conditions for unforgettable kitesurf sessions.
Experienced kitesurfers can kitesurf independent of the tide in the so-called “pool” in the ocean.

We recommend wearing booties due to shells and stones in the water.

Kiteboarding Events

A partner as one can only wish for! Kiteboarding Events certainly also offers a huge kite gear pool with up to 45 kites and 25 boards waiting for you to get testet!

The spot in Dakhla offers the perfect conditions for that kind of event and assures a fast and easy progress with the instructors always by your side and laid-back activities around the event.

Accommodations directly at the kitesurf spot

In Seahorse Bay you can choose between two different accommodations. From the Kiteclub you can easily and literally go from “bed to board”.
In case the Kiteclub is fully booked we can accommodate you in the cozy Seahorse Bay Pension.

Kiteclub Seahorse Bay

The kite villa with its spacious terrace is the focal point of the Kiteclub and spreads out over 200 square meters. In addition the Kite Club provides a lovely and large garden with direct access to the spot.

Facilities

The Kite Club’s generous garden includes a jacuzzi to relax in between your kite sessions. Sun beds and other comfy seating will be awaiting you in and around the kite villa, which are of course free of charge. The oriental corner with fireplace and shishas invites you to a nice chill-out session.

There’s also a small cafeteria where you can enjoy tasty snacks with non-alcoholic drinks like Egyptian tea. Additionally, there is a reading corner in the chill out area, a climbing wall, satellite TV, and a DVD player for recordings from your day on the water or to watch movies.

In the lounge of the Kite Villa you can find a pool table and a tabletop football. In case you forgot some kite stuff like rash guards, board shorts or other minor but important gear you have the possibility to purchase them in the little shop inside the kite villa.

Rooms

The eight rooms include A/C, fans (on request), a wardrobe, night table, fridge, satellite TV as well as a hairdryer. Six rooms have their own, fully-equipped bathroom. Two rooms share a bathroom and shower and are a bit cheaper. Depending on availability, the rooms can be booked in single, double or triple occupancy. The blue room accommodates up to four people.

Half board is included in your stay at the Kite Club accommodation. The breakfast contains a rich variety of drinks, bread, eggs in different styles, yoghurts, fruit salads, cornflakes, different spreads and also different types of sausages and cheese. The breakfast is prepared freshly for each guest.

The daily dinner offers a choice of three main courses with varying starters and desserts.

You can order wine and beer at the Kite Club, other alcoholic beverages we recommend to bring from the Duty Free shop at the airport.

Seahorse Bay Pension

The little pension is situated directly on the private sandy beach next to the Kite Club Seahorse Bay. The pension surrounded by the Red Sea on three sides.

From the heated fresh water pool you can follow the wind and watch the kiters on the water. The pool bar provides you with fresh cool beverages. Comfortable sun beds with mattresses and beach towels beside the pool or on the beach are included in the price.

Rooms

The rooms are all lovingly equipped with a satellite TV, air conditioning, safe, hair dryer, minibar, a small sitting corner and a bathroom with shower/WC.
