LOCATION REPORT

Dahab is a very popular freeride windsurfing place due to its amazing wind conditions and flat water. 

Wind and spot description 

90% perfect wind for May, June and September and about 70% for November, February, March- best wind statistics in the Red Sea. The wind blows cross-offshore to offshore. Totally flat water in the “Lagoon”, 100% flat water in the “Speedy” area.

Dahab is very special place in Egypt, as it offers three different sailing areas:

 The “Lagoon” is a protected bay, with a large area of standing depth water. Best place for beginner riders and intermediate sailors. The “Lagoon” is good for beach start, harness, planning, water start and even jibe lessons! (Surf shoes recommended.)

Kitesurfing in the “Lagoon” is prohibited. However, there is a special lagoon area  marked for kitesurfing where beginners can receive instruction and make their first rides in shallow, safe conditions. Happy-kite centre is located out there. 

Around the “Lagoon” you will find the “Speedy”: a perfectly flat water area for advanced windsurfers. The wind blows constantly and is a bit stronger than inside the “Lagoon”. The “Speedy” ends with the “Baby bay” – very famous place among freestyle riders. A Rest & Rescue island available in the “Speedy” for short break or calling for rescue if necessary. 

The third area is behind the Napoleon Reef – the “Kamikadze”. The swell is up to three meters high in a windy day (no breaking wave), thus creating fantastic jumping conditions. Every sailor going onto the “Kamikadze” area is given a personal walkie-talkie or mobile phone to keep in touch with Vetratoria's personal rescue boat.

  

Wetsuits: short or long legs in the winter, board shorts from April to November- unless it's very windy.
