Dakhla is located on the edge of the Sahara with a huge lagoon of flat water next to the Atlantic Ocean. If you are looking for a destination with guaranteed wind and flat, smooth water, then Dakhla is your place. This location has extremely reliable wind, a fantastic, rich culture and sunny weather. The birds and dolphins will surf aside you and later in your evenings, you will be able to share these stories with a cold drink and co-kitesurfing enthusiasts like you!
After an hour and a half drive with the 4×4, you will have the most stunning high rolling waves. It is well-known and often a location for the World Cup-wave. That is why this spot is one of the best places in the world to learn new tricks. Are you ready to try something new? Or do you want to perfect your old tricks? Want to add some more style to your tricks? Maybe an extra grab somewhere? Come quick with our Freestyle KiteActive instructors to Dakhla. We will help you to advance to the next level with four days of filming and intensive coaching.
Next to the KiteActive Camp you will find a huge lagoon that will make your kitesurfing heart skip a beat. The smooth flat water is ideal for beginners to succeed in their first meters. Our spot is of course influenced by tides, but with low-tide you will find still enough water to get your surf on. Depending on the tides you will have from 150 to 300 meters wide of shallows, all right in front of the KiteActive camp. This is where you will spend 90% of your holiday. The ground is sandy and does not have any sharp rocks or coral life. The wind blows side shore constantly from the left side. Due to this, the place offers maximum safety for beginners and ideal conditions for freestylers. Even in high season, when the mass kitesurf resorts (2 km away on the other side of the lagoon) are full, you will still have plenty of space to learn and do your tricks!
WIND & CLIMATE
March and April are the months that have the most reliable wind in Dakhla. Plentiful hours of kitesurfing and soar muscles are a guarantee! The wind blows side shore and is usually between 14 and sometimes 30 knots. The water is cold, so do take a shorty. The outside temperature is sunny and warm during the day. However, this is a desert where the temperature alters from hot to cold in a matter of hours. Once the sun sets, the conditions can drop 20 degrees. So remember a couple of warmer clothes!
