A fantastic bay around 600 metres long. Shallow warm water in the bay. After a small reef you find deeper water where you can find higher winds and occasionally waves. Ideal for all levels. Come and experience this thrilling sport in one of the safest and best spots in Europe. You are going to love kitesurfing in Marsa Alam! We have been successfully and safely teaching Kitesurfing for over 4 years now. Our lessons provide a proven step-by-step approach to learn Kiteboarding safely and quickly. We have a teaching program developed according to IKO (International Kiteboarding Organization) standards. Our instructors have been formed & trained by IKO.
Wadi Lahami is found 2 hrs south of Marsa Alam airport. Virtually untouched by tourism you will be amazed by the calmness and beauty of the most southern frontier of surfing in Egypt. You can learn to kitesurf in the lagoon. You are protected by the inner reef allowing you to learn in a tranquil setting without waves hitting you in the back of the head. For those more experienced and wanting to break the Egyptian speed record, all you need to do is head a little further out, passed the reef and you have an endless array of poppers, flat water and small waves. The wind is stronger passed the protected bay and is plenty for speed freaks and freestyle junkies alike!
