Route

Slice of Life Clinic Morocco/Dakhla 

The second destination of the Kite Clinics with Tom is Dakhla in the western Sahara – one of the best spots in the world! Dakhla basically consists of a huge lagoon with shallow, warm water and an incredibly consistent wind yield.

With these incredible prerequisites, you will progress extremely fast: no matter if you want to try your first jumps or finally get into freestyle business. On top of that, you’ll be kitesurfing in the middle of the desert, which is a surreal experience in and of itself.

Slice of Life Clinic Zanzibar/Jambiani

Turquoise water, white beaches, and a vast shallow lagoon, protected by a coral reef; if any of our destinations deserve to be called paradise, it’s Zanzibar. Combined with a high wind yield, this makes our spot in Jambiani a truly dreamlike location for Tom’s third clinic. After you have learned new tricks on the blue Indian Ocean during the day, the soft sandy beach invites you to a cool beer by the campfire with the other kiters in the evening – what more could you ask for?

Slice of Life Clinic Sicily/Lo Stagnone

It doesn’t always have to be halfway around the world; our exclusive spot in Lo Stagnone, Sicily offers you one of the largest shallow water lagoons in Europe and an incredible wind yield that can easily compete with the best spots in the world. All this, combined with a warm atmosphere and spacious accommodation, makes Sicily the ideal spot for Tom’s fourth Slice Of Life Clinic. This environment offers you the best conditions to apply what you learn from Tom all day long – progress guaranteed!

Tom Court

Tom Court is part of the North Kiteboarding International Teams since ages, now called Duo Tone. Last year he became a member of the KiteWorldWide family as a team rider.  He is known for his progressive style of riding, as well as his numerous videos that are well known along the kitesurfing community.  Furthermore, he really pushes the sport of kitesurfing forward and tries to develop and refine it.  Tom’s videos always show both sides of a pro kiter life: kitesurfing a lot of fitness and training on the one hand and endless parties on the other.

Tom has been kiting since he was 11 years old.  When it comes down to business and his favorite sport, he can be very serious but when it comes to lifestyle, you can say that he is really living life to the fullest. This perfect combination is what it takes to fit into the KiteWorldWide team and he has it down to a fine art.

Accomodation during the event

In Dakhla, pure luxury awaits you in the middle of the desert. Our KiteWorldWide Villa Camp overlooking the lagoon offers everything you need for perfect relaxation after strenuous kitesurfing sessions. In total, there are six mini-villas with large and spacious double rooms, private bathrooms and private terraces, as well as six Riad-style rooms, each of which has a double room with its own bathroom. There is also a private swimming pool and a traditional Moroccan hammam.

Red Monkey Lodge Zanzibar

The Red Monkey LodgeZanzibar/Jambiani is situated on a dreamlike, small beach with adjoining woods. It was completely renovated and reopened in December 2010 under new German-Italian management. Since then it has presented itself as a pretty, boutique-style accommodation. In addition, it is the only lodge with a sustainability certificate, which puts it miles ahead of the entire island. The Red Monkey Lodge makes it possible to kick back in a relaxed atmosphere and at the same time reduce your ecological footprint.

KiteWorldWide Villa Lo Stagnone

The KiteWorldWide Villa Lo Stagnone is located incredibly close to the lagoon. From the beautiful terrace and some of the rooms, you have a breathtaking view over the lagoon and a clear view of the sunset. Whether you’re having coffee in the morning or a beer in the evening – you can look forward to unique and peaceful moments. You can’t live closer to the water.

Catering

In Dakhla, Zanzibar, and Sicily, we offer you a delicious full board during the clinic, so that you can concentrate on your training. This will include a nutritious breakfast and a three-course meal for lunch and dinner.
