As safety is our number one concern, all students are provided with the needed equipment (helmet, live jacket, wetsuit) to let learn and progress in a safe condition.
All our instructors are certified from IKO (International Kiteboarding Organization) or VDWS (Verband Deutscher Wassersport Schulen) and consequently, your lessons are not only up to standards, but you also get a certificate after finishing your lessons.

Sun, wind and weather
Safaga and Somabay are almost sunny all year long (about 330 days of sun a year) despite whether we are in summer or winter.
At our platform, the wind direction is side offshore and wind is always stable, as we are in the middle of the sea so no wind obstacles around us.
The kite season’s peak starts from March and lasts until sweet November. From December to February is the winter season where the wind still blows and the sun shines, yet a wetsuit is preferable. Average water temperature is between 22°C-29°C along the year. Wind speed averages between 14-29 knots along the year.
