We are ready to celebrate the end of August, one of the windiest month in Egypt, with a kite cruise in partnership with our friend of Kite Monkey. We have chose a luxury yacht that will act as our moving hotel, taking us to the best kitesurfing areas of the Red Sea, starting from the port of Hurghada. All you need to do is arrive at the Hurghada International Airport and we will take care of everything else from there: this is a all inclusive trip: all you have to do is book your flights, and we will take care of you from the arrival till departure. And if this date doesn’t work for you, check our Kite Cruise week calendar to see what we are planning for the rest of 2023!
Our boat this week will be MV Tala. This yacht has a lot of experience in the Red Sea and one of the best crew that i’ve ever seen working on a kitesurfing cruise: it can host up to host up to 26 kiters and of course it has all the amenities and comforts we are used to see on a kite cruise boat: a classic deck to prepare and store your kite gear, a main deck made to chill and party, a solarium, a restaurant, and 13 cabins with private toilet and shower (airconditioned obviously). Sick Dog and Kite Monkey team will be on board – we will choose the best kite spots for the day, decide a route for the week, and give a much needed help on and off the water. We kite from dawn till sunset – so be prepared for an intensive kitesurfing week.
DAY 1 – This is the day of arrival: we will organize a transfer from the airport to the boat, depending on your arrival time of course. If you are already in Egypt, we will organize a transfer from any hotel or from the kite spot (if you are kiting already). On the boat you will get your cabin, and meet the rest of the kiters (and the team). We will dine on the boat and sleep on board in the marina, ready to departure as early as possible the next morning.
DAY 2 – The boat will depart when you are still sleeping, direction South Geisum. The island of Geisum offer awesome spots for kitesurfing, and we will head to a spot called South Geisum (or Marina Geisum). We will kite there all day and sleep on board in South Geisum.
DAY 3 – We will be kiting all day in South Geisum, starting with an early session before breakfast (so be ready for an early wake up). We will again kite here all day, and sleep on board.
DAY 4 – Early morning the boat will move to Ashrafi, the northest kite spot in the Red Sea. We will kite in Ashrafi all day long, and sleep there.
DAY 5 – It’s downwinder day. After a morning session, at lunch we will do a downwinder towards East Geisum – a 90mins easy downwinder good for all levels. We will arrive in East Geisum early in the afternoon and have more time to kite there.
DAY 6 – We will kite all day in East Geisum – get ready for another early wake up, cause if the conditions are good we will be kiting from 6am.
DAY 7 – Last day at sea: we will kite in East Geisum and push lunch as late as possible, cause after lunch we will head back to the marina. We will spend the last night on board in Hurghada, and if we have enough energy we will go go El Gouna for an evening out.
DAY 8 – That’s it, time to pack your back (if you have not done it already). We will organize a transfer back to the airport or to an hotel of your choice, and see you next time!
