    • What’s included in the Kitesurfing Camp:

        • Learning with an experienced, professional IKO instructor
        • 6 days of lessons (approx. 3-4h of lessons per day)
        • Use of the newest Cabrinha & North Kiteboarding equipment
        • IKO license with a level mastered during the lessons
        • 7 days of accommodation in luxury kite apartment for the Kitesurfing Camp with Accommodation
        • 1 kite video analysis session
        • Transfer from/to Hurghada Airport (HRG) to your accommodation

      What’s not included:

        • Transportation to and from Hurghada
        • Accomodation for the Basic Kitesurfing Camp
        • Entry VISA at the airport ($30)
        • Extra lessons or equipment rental after finishing kite camp
        • Yoga classes (charged extra)
        • Meals and snacks
    • The only thing your instructor will expect from you is that you know how to swim, but of course, being in good shape helps. Strength isn’t a necessary component to successful kiteboarding; it’s all about the technique, which is why it’s the perfect sport to take lessons as a beginner.

    • If you’re new to kiting, lessons will benefit you immensely. Technically, all you need to know to kiteboard is how to swim and how to stand on the board, but it’s much more doable if an instructor teaches you about the weather conditions, selecting a proper launch site and gear. An instructor will make sure you’re safe while you get the hang of it, and will teach you the skills needed to progress quickly and get you out there on your own in no time.

    • Here’s what you’ll need:

        • Day pack large enough to carry all the items listed (around a 40L bag)
        • Water bottle
        • Food you can eat on-the-go
        • Toiletries (sunscreen, bug spray, toilet paper, etc.)
        • Sunglasses
        • Swimsuits
        • Towels
        • Sweater
        • Camera — optional

      Wetsuit and booties can be rented for an additional fee. Let us know if you need this gear as it is mandatory equipment for the lessons.

    • Kiteboarding requires a combination of patience and motivation. You actually need to learn two sports: board riding and kite flying, so give yourself plenty of time to do it properly. All students progress through lessons at their own pace, but a three-day beginner clinic should have you seeing massive improvement in your abilities.
      Some students require an additional lesson or two to work on their upwind skills, but the basics are usually mastered after three days on the water. If you’re looking to become an independent rider, the five-day clinic is your best value. You’ll learn more advanced techniques and be confident to hit the waves on your own by the time the clinic ends.

    • Group sizes and prices:

        • The usual guest-to-guide ratio is 2:1.
        • The max. group size for the 7-day adventures is 5 people.
        • Cost is per person and it doesn’t decrease as the group grows.
        • If joining alone, you’ll be placed with peers that share a similar level of experience.

      Kitesurfing in Hurghada, Egypt, can be arranged for bigger groups. Contact us prior to booking.

      Min. age requirements:

        • If you are older than 18, you’re good to go.
        • While there is not necessarily a minimum age to kiteboard, there are minimum requirements, such as height and weight. Prior to booking, let us know if you’re planning on traveling with minors, and we will let you know if it’s safe for them to get on the water.

      If your group has minors under the age of 18, contact us prior to booking to make arrangements.

    • To get to Hurghada, most people fly into Cairo International Airport. From there you can take a 1-hour flight to Hurghada International Airport (HRG) 20 minutes away from the city of Hurghada. Once you get there, you can rent a car, take a bus or taxi to get to Hurghada. Another option is to drive from Cairo to Hurghada (approximately a 5-hour drive).

      For the 7-day adventures, your guiding service will transfer you from the airport to Hurghada. At the end of your adventure, your guiding service will transfer you back to the airport.
