KITESURF CENTRE, SAFAGA
The new large build centre offers latest equipment for all skill levels! The kite beach, for launching and landing, is right next to the centre. The centre offers the latest equipment from North Kite boarding.
The centre has two rescue boats, which guarantee safety on the water during opening times (8.30 a.m. – 5 p.m.) and can be coordinated by wireless and walkie talkie. For private kitesurfers, a rescue service package is available, which covers unlimited rescue for the period booked. We offer as well lockers for private kiters. Our guests have the possibility to book in the Shams Safaga 3 * or the new Hotel Shams Safaga with 5*.
Safaga is the ultimate all-round kitesurf spot and suitable for everyone, from beginners to absolute experts! The turquoise waters of Kite Bay commence upwind of the bathing zone; here kitesurfers will find a waist-deep kite surf area, the first part of which is protected by a spit.
At high tide, Kite Bay is ideally suited to body-drag and water-start instruction and of course for one's first few metres on the kitesurf board. Kite-surfers who have successfully completed their first few water launches can head for the stretch of beach upwind of Kite Bay at low tide (Kite Bay II). There you will find a very long beach which is just perfect for going upwind. The spot is excellently suited to advanced kitesurfers, due to its outstanding wind potential.
WIND AND WAVES
In the morning the wind is side off shore from the left and turns in the late morning/lunchtime to side shore. Cause of this the water is absolutely flat in the morning and later depending of the wind-speed a bit choppy.
