Location: Hurghada, Egypt
We'll have a week supercharged of action in Soma Bay, also considered the kitesurfers' paradise because of it's crystal clear waters, which offer ideal conditions for beginners but also for intermediate and advanced riders. Our guest star and coach for the tricks is Vlad Postelnicu - expert rider ( 13 years of experience and over 1.5 million views on kiteboarding movies on his youtube channel ) & winner of many kiteboarding, snowkite & wakeboarding contests in Romania.

However, your riding level doesn't really matter, because we've prepared activities for everybody: beginner kitesurfing course, next level lessons, tricks module, pro demo shows, latest equipment testing, physical preparation specific for kitesurfing, yoga, stretching.

If you got tired of riding or you don't have anything to do with kitesurfing, you are still welcome, since we've prepared for you a lot of off the water fun things to do: optional trips ( Pyramids, Valley of Kings, Nile river trip, Luxor Temple ), optional activities ( scuba, snorlkeling, wakeboarding, quad, boat trips ), Kitefest Games & Spa services.
Our playground will be a kitesurfing paradise - we've been there before and we're eager to return.

Thanks to the shallow water, the waves never get formed so the small chop is good for tricks & jumps practice. Beginners also find it extremely comfortable to learn here, due to the shallow water and the relatively clean water bottom ( there's no rocks in most places, so you can walk barefoot ).

FAQ

Egypt provides great winds from spring to autumn. In the summer months, from May to October, the average wind is around 22 knots, with the afternoons sometimes getting up to 25 / 30 knts ( especially in September )! Soma Bay is blessed with strong and consistent winds, ranking it one of the best kitesurfing spots in Egypt. According to monthly wind statistics, October and November are some of the best months for kitesurfing.
Despite some travel restrictions ( to Sinai Peninsula, which we are not going to visit ), going to Egypt is safe, provided you take caution. We have visited Hurghada in April 2018 ( in total 30 kitesurfers ) and our 2 weeks were trouble free. Turist destinations are also safe to visit with the vast majority of turists having no problems and only positive experiences.
KiteFest is a very convenient option for you: we take care of all or most of the logistic and travelling arrangements.

We also offer you the chance to watch PRO demo shows and learn from the good riders and test new equipment.

Become part of our group to hang out together ( on and off water ), party, relax, have fun and enjoy our time together.
Of course! We offer you the full kitesurf course, provided by trustworthy IKO certified instructors, top rated for their professionalism, method and focus on safety.

Also, we provide all the equipment you need ( wetsuit, life vest, helmets, kite gear ).

You'll be enjoying ideal conditions to learn ( flat, shallow water, no waves, big lagoon, enough space - not crowded, rescue boat ).
We plan our trips in such manner as to include both on water and off water activities, especially because we want everyone to feel good and to enjoy the best out of our trips.

KiteFest offers you a wide range of entertainment options, not all related to kitesurf: games, parties, trips, scuba, snorkel, quads, yoga, workouts, spa services and more.

Become part of our group and we can hang out together, party, relax and have fun.
