+ Huge shallow water lagoon for beginners, intermediates, and freestylers
+ Beautiful Boutique Hotel Jardins de Toumana in typical Djerbian style
+ KiteWorldWide kite station with the latest gear from CORE Kiteboarding 
+ Holiday destination suited for single travelers, couples, and families

After we had to let go of some destinations last year with a heavy heart, we have been tirelessly searching for a new spot that meets the KiteWorldWide criteria. On our search, we jetted around the entire world almost once, until Maik from kitereisen.tv told us to have a look at Djerba, Tunisia.

We took his advice and so we got on a plane in Hamburg in September and got off in the absolute kitesurfing paradise in the middle of Tunisia. The small island Djerba is located in the southeast of Tunisia and is a real insider tip among kitesurfers. Many do not really have this nearby destination on their radars.

We found a lot of great spots and a great shallow water lagoon here. We liked it so much that we went there a few more times and then submitted a request for a spot to the Tunisian government. Finally, we even took the KITE BUDDY with us to test the spot and get his opinion about a kitesurf holiday Djerba. Spoiler alert: He loved it!

Now that we finally have the contract for the kite spot, we can start to build a completely new kite center for you at our exclusive KiteWorldWide Spot and build a kite infrastructure, which doesn’t exist on Djerba yet.

True to our philosophy, we didn’t want to pick just any place to accommodate you at this great new spot, but we’ve found a wonderful hotel for you. The Boutique Hotel Jardins de Toumana is 20-25 minutes away from the spot and features spacious suites and family apartments. Speaking of family: non-kiters can get their money’s worth in Djerba as well, thanks to various activities like Stand- Up Paddling, horse riding, shopping, and ATV tours into the desert.

Kitesurfing on Djerba

The Spot

The spot on Djerba is perfect for beginners due to its large shallow area.
On the large shallow water lagoon near El Kantara on the Roman embankment, there is enough space for beginners to train. Here, you can learn to kite quickly and safely thanks to the huge standing area. But intermediates and freestylers will also find plenty of space to practice their jumps or challenging maneuvers. Since the lagoon has a direct access to the Mediterranean Sea, it is hardly dependent on the tides and you can always get on the water without waiting for the tide.

A 400-meter wide access area at our spot guarantees that launching and landing kitesurfers always have enough space. This way, you can fully concentrate on kiting and achieve fast learning results.

The shallow water lagoon with its sandy ground (no stones, shells, corals or anything else) and more than 70% wind days per year is ideal for unforgettable kite sessions.

Season

Especially in spring, Djerba is extremely wind stable and therefore perfect for learning to kitesurf when the North Sea and the Baltic Sea do not allow any training due to the temperatures yet. The wind statistics of Djerba are not to be neglected for the rest of the year, either.

Quelle: https://www.windguru.cz/archive-stats.php?id_spot=359

The average wind yield between April and October is more than 65% per month if you can get used to a bigger kite.  We will have lots of kites from CORE Kiteboarding on site.
