Itinerary

After your arrival at Hurghada International Airport (HRG), a friendly host will pick you up and guide you to the transfer-service to Safaga. Approximately 45 minutes later, you will arrive at the school. Sort yourself into your room and join the welcome meeting at the Tornado Surf Center (all other necessary information is provided there).

You will get introduced to the local ambassadors, meet other people, and get informed about the program for the next exciting days. Every morning and every afternoon, the group will come together for a “join-up” to discuss the program and activities for the day. After the morning “join-up”, you will start with the kite lessons. A delicious lunch will be served.

You can choose between a morning and an afternoon lesson, whichever you choose, you will always have two lessons per day. In any case, before the lesson, you and your instructor will discuss your goals for the day. During one of the morning sessions, there is the possibility of a specific windsurfing photoshoot.

Location

Safaga is located 50 kilometers south of Hurghada and is a location of numerous kitesurfing, windsurfing, and diving centers. The contrast between the turquoise blue sea and the barren desert landscape makes this area an impressive backdrop. The pleasant temperatures and the steady winds make Safaga a perfect spot for kite and windsurfing all year round. The wind is usually around 1-2 Bft stronger than in Hurghada, because of the thermal effect from the desert; especially from April to October, the wind is very steady and constant.

A few kilometers north of Safaga is the "world-famous" Soma Bay. This bay has an area of several square kilometers, offers beautiful scenery, and perfect conditions for kite and windsurfing. Tornado Surf Center runs a daily Kite-Boat-Trip right into the middle of the Soma Bay, and thus, providing the ultimate pleasure for all levels of Kitesurfers.

In the city of Safaga, you will get an impression of the colorful life of an Egyptian fishing village and you can easily get in touch with the very friendly locals. Here is one of the oldest ports in the Red Sea, Port Safaga. It was established already under the Egyptian Pharaoh Sahure about 4,000 years ago as a base for trade and exploration in the Red Sea. Today, it is the main base for the Egyptian Navy for patrols in the Southeast of Egypt.

It also serves as a starting point for pilgrimages to Mecca, the export of aluminum, and import of wheat. Accordingly, the city is dominated by an industrial complex and cargo district. Outside of the hotels and resorts, the village has little further attractions to offer to the tourist. Along the coastline of Safaga, there are many inner and outer reefs which are very popular for divers and snorkelers.

Off the coast, the small sand-island "Tobia Island", is a favored day trip destination for many diving and snorkeling boats. Also, kite and windsurfers like to take short trips there. The slightly larger island, "Safaga Island", is a restricted military area and not accessible for tourists.
