A kitesurfing camp is an intensive week of kitesurfing, where you will ride side-by-side with experts in the sport and one simple goal in mind: your progression. Whichever is your level, you will find someone to help you improve.
We decided this year to have our special kite camp on a luxury motor yacht! The boat will be our home for a week, taking us to the best kitesurfing spots on the Red Sea, where the conditions are perfect to progress in kitesurfing. Starting at 6am every morning, we plan to have 3 solid sessions per day. For guests who are tired or need a longer break, there’s a runabout zodiac to take you back to base at your convenience. For those up to it…we can kite for up to 10 hours per day!
This kitesurf cruise camp will start from the Hurghada Marina, on the Red Sea Coast of Egypt. Simply book your flights and arrive at the Hurghada International airport, and we will take care of the rest!

Our boat this week is named Queen Sherry. This luxury motor yacht has space for over 22 kiters, with 3 decks and plenty of space to relax, unwind, party and socialise. This boat comes with a full crew; a captain, a chef to prepare our freshly cooked meals, and of course our team from Sick Dog. Queen Sherry has several decks, a solarium, a restaurant, a main lounge with a TV set, and a main deck with music.
All cabins have 2 single beds, air-conditioning, a private toilet and shower. There is also 1 cabins with queen sized beds, if you’re coming with your partner.
This trip is a true kitesurfing adventure, so be prepared for an unforgettable experience!
DAY 1 – The very first day is your arrival day: the boat is ready and available to board from midday. One of our team will be waiting for you at the airport, taking you on the short half hour drive to the Hurghada Marina. Once you’ve boarded and settled in, everyone will get introduced to the crew and familiarised with the boat. We will have our first dinner onboard, maybe a few drinks in Hurghada or on the boat, before a well deserved sleep. Tomorrow is a big day!
DAY 2 – The yacht will move as early as possible in the morning, heading to the first kite spot of the week, Abu Mungar. During this time, we start warming up and checking that all is in order with your gear. The whole day is spent kitesurfing, with the exception of breaks on the boat for lunch and dinner. We will overnight in Abu Mungar, rested and fresh to take on day 3.
DAY 3 – We’ll be moving before breakfast to one of the most renowned and iconic kitesurfing spots on the Red Sea – Tawila Island. The island offers us a beautiful crystal lagoon with a few small sand banks that pop up at low tide; an ideal place to learn or progress on your freestyle. Tawila is our destination for the full day, with an overnight stay as well.
DAY 4 – We will be spending a second day at Tawila, waking up for a sunrise session on the water before breakfast – open to everyone that is up to an early start! Brush up your skills and make the most of the island’s stunning flat water and sandy beach! The runabout zodiac and crew will be there to take you for breaks onboard. Later in the day, it’s onwards to Geisum Island, where we will sleep and be prepared for the following day.
DAY 5 – Another early start with a session at dawn, there is really nothing quite like being out on the water when the sun is rising! We will be in Geisum all day, and head North for tomorrow’s downwinder only later in the afternoon.
DAY 6 – Downwinder! It’s an easy going trip, we’ll set off as a group heading downwind from Ashrafi Island to Geisum. Enjoy the rolling waves along the way and take in the beautiful Red Sea surroundings – the trip takes around 1.5 hours. The rest of our day will be at Geisum.
DAY 7 – Or last morning on the water will be spent on Geisum again, heading back to Hurghada Marina near the end of the day. With the trip coming to an end, we will spend our last night together in the Marina. A few post-cruise drinks onboard wrap up an amazing week at sea, and if energy levels are high, we’ll head to town for some extra action off the water!
DAY 8 – The boat will close its doors at midday and our minibus will be waiting to take you to Hurghada Airport. Hope to see you on board next time!
