This kitesurf camp will take place in Dakhla. In southwest Morocco on the border to Mauritania, a few kilometers before the city of Dakhla, appears in the middle of the desert parallel to the coast, a 40-kilometer long and 4-kilometer wide peninsula in the Atlantic Ocean. In between, lies a kitesurfer’s paradise, a nearly endless glassy lagoon.
With 300 kiteable days per year and a nearly 100% guaranteed wind probability during April to October, Dakhla is one of the worldwide "top ten" spots for kitesurfing. The gigantic lagoon, combined with perfect wave spots on the other side of the land tongue, offers ideal kitesurfing conditions for beginners, intermediates, freestylers and wavekiters.
For beginners and intermediates, Dakhla's large water lagoon is ideal for learning to kitesurf, with extensive space for the freestylers to try out new tricks and turns. The wavekiters amongst you get to explore the deserted beaches on the ocean side of the lagoon and "straplessly" chase the waves with the wind.
