Safaga, Egypt » spot info

the spot in safaga

Safaga is perfectly suitable for all skill levels. In Safaga you will definitely enjoy windsurfing, no matter whether you are beginner, intermediate or expert. Tuition takes place in a shallow water area in ideal conditions for practicing water starts.

The beginner lagoon is perfect for all novices, as the water is very flat and the wind considerably lighter than anywhere else at the spot. The beach section in front of the center is located on a headland so that you can launch easily and directly from the center. The varied spot offers ideal slalom, freeride and freestyle conditions.

wind and waves

The wind blows side-offshore from the left in the morning and then turns to side shore at around 11am. The wind conditions in the morning favour an excursion to Toubia Island, a sandy island surrounded by turquoise water only 3.8 kilometers away – don't miss it! In the afternoon the steady wind normally blows sideshore. This wind direction dominates from 11am until the afternoon. The stronger the wind blows, the longer it stays in the afternoon. The kitesurfing spot is about 300 meters downwind. The areas for windsurfing and kitesurfing tuition are separate from each other.

the center

The ION CLUB windsurfing center is located on the beautiful and wide beach of Shams Safaga Resort and Shams Lodge, where you find by far the best spot in Safaga. The ION CLUB kitesurfing center is situated separately from the windsurfing center just in front of the 5 star Hotel Shams Prestige about 300 metres further north. The Imperial Shams Abu Soma is located between the Shams Safaga and the Shams Prestige.
 The walking distance between both ION CLUB is about 10 minutes.


Our windsurfing spot in Safaga has a big lagoon with shallow water (depending on the tide). The lagoon has a bit less wind than the rest of the bay. We offer children lesson for all levels and have a big choice of kids equipment at the center.
