Dakhla is a small town around 1000 km south of Essaouira, located on a 48 km long and 4 km wide peninsula which stretches into the Atlantic Ocean, creating a huge lagoon. The location of our ION CLUB Windsurf and Kitesurf Center is on the north-eastern coast of that peninsula.

The huge sandy lagoon provides fantastic conditions with constant winds throughout the whole year, flat water and more than enough space. Beginners, professionals and everybody else will find kitesurfing at its best here. As an added bonus the other side of the peninsula offers perfect wave conditions which can be reached within no time by car.

best spots FOR KITESURFING AND WINDSURFING

DAKHLA LAGOON

The spot is a 40 km long and 13 km wide lagoon, created by the peninsula of Dakhla which stretches into the Atlantic Ocean. Our center is located on the north-eastern coast of that lagoon. Thanks to the side shore winds from the north, the water is completely flat and thus offers perfect conditions for practicing and learning, as well as freestyle and racing. Depending on high and low tide there is an up to 300 meter long shallow water area right in front of the center. After 5 minutes drive to the other side of the peninsula of Dakhla you reach fantastic wave spots, perfect for wave riding and surfing.

SURF IN LASSARGA

Located about 35km / 40 minutes South towards Dakhla Town, at the tip of the Dakhla peninsula. Long Point beach break.
Suitable for surfers beginner, intermediate and advanced.
Works from 1m – 3m. One of the best and longest peeling waves of Morocco for all levels, and possibly one of the longest peeling waves in Europe!

WAVE SPOTS

We offer trips to various wave spots several times a week.
Point D’or: 15 minutes from the center, sandy entry, sometimes a little wind in the first few meters, then just cruising with wind from the right. Oum Labbouir: about 30 minutes drive from the center. Here the waves wash up very cleanly on the sandy beach. Chance of rocks in the water when you get down closer to Cape. The wind is also sideshore from the right, very consistent. A true dream spot!

BEST PERIODS

February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October

WIND

Wind in Dakhla usually comes from north - northeast, and offers fantastic opportunities for advanced and intermediate windsurfers and kitesurfers.

In the Lagoon side, the wind there usually blows sideshore from the left.

WAVES

Right at our door we have a 1.5km sandy beach with a fantastic pointbreak that generates a great right wave – you can even see that on the satellite picture of Google Maps, how the swell comes from north-northwest and “embraces” the point creating a nice series of waves. On good days, you can surf almost 1km, from the pointbreak to the fishermen village at the end of the beach (almost 2min on the wave!). Great for advanced riders as well as for beginners. The successive breakers along the beach offer a wave for each level and being so close to the shore, you can walk back to the breaker instead of paddle back. A carrousel of waves that allows you to focus on surfing rather than paddling.

WHAT TO DO AROUND DAKHLA ?

Bike excursion

Join our guide to the amazing bike excursion around the Moroccan desert. The Fat bikes are perfect for any “Down Dune ride”.

Dragon Island

You should pay a visit to Magical Dragon Island. At low tide, it is possible to walk there. This walk will also be an opportunity for you to admire the ballet of kitesurfers and dolphins. Pink flamingos and other migratory birds will serve as your welcoming committee. You can also go there by boat, a few companies organise trips and spend a beautiful day in this incredible place

The White Dune

For every experienced kiter it is a must to make an excursion to the white dune, a unique natural monument. If you are lucky, dolphins will cross your path on the way. From the top of the dune there is a magnificent view of the dune landscape and of the turquoise bay. Whoever has the courage and the ability can go directly from the dune to land gently in the water below.

At high tide, it turns into an island. To date, this phenomenon remains a real mystery. There is no reliable scientific data or theory to explain this. There are two ways to visit the white dune, in a 4×4 or during kitesurfing trips.
