New for 2013 Planet now have a new centre in the famous kitesurfing resort of Soma Bay in Egypt. This new soma Bay Kitesurf centre is based directly on the beach of the new 5* Soma Bay Movenpick Hotel. This hotel is perfect for kitesurfers with non-kiting partners or family as there is a high level of service and great food.

The kitesurfing in Soma Bay is some of the best in Egypt with a huge bay and the best wind stats in the region. The whole bay gives rise to absolutely sensational - and incredibly varied - windsurfing and kiting conditions: flat water, small to medium sized waves and shallow areas offer something for every level of ability. Due to the small, offshore islands and reefs, the entire bay feels as though it is framed, which gives a very pleasant feeling of security when you are out windsurfing and kiting.

Our partner kitesurf school at the Somabay Movenpick is stocked with al the newest North kitesurf equipment. They also provide a full range of kitesurf course from 10 hour IKO Kitesurf beginner course to private advanced instruction.
