Our camp is located in the town of El Gouna, a coastal small city of the Red Sea, Egypt, just 30 mins away from Hurghada International airport. It offers great conditions for kitesurfing – wind 70% of the days per year, warm and flat waters, and sunny 365 days a year! It is a great location to get started with kitesurfing, but also for quick progressions for intermediate/advanced, due to stable winds and the calm Red Sea, making it the choice of many pro riders looking for a training winter place.
In Winter is recommended to bring a wetsuit, while in summer a lycra is all you need in the water.
