Dakhla Lagoon, Morocco » spot info

The spot in Dakhla

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.
 Any questions?

Wind and waves

The wind blows constantly throughout the whole year. More than 320 days with more than 12 knots make Dakhla a pure pleasure. The main wind direction is north-easterly, so the wind blows side-shore from the right. Thanks to this the water inside the lagoon is flat close to the beach and gets a little bit choppier the farther you are away from the shore. At the wave spots on the other side of the peninsula the wind blows slightly side-onshore, and is normally a few knots weaker than inside the lagoon.



The center

The 300m² ION CLUB center includes a shop, a nice chill-out corner and plenty of equipment. It is located right next to the Ocean Vagabond restaurant, with an amazing view over the whole lagoon. From the center it is only a few steps to the water. The terrace of the center is protected from the wind, so that families and partners who don´t sail can comfortably stay on the beach and watch the action on the water from there. Showers, toilets and changing rooms can also be found in the center.

Kids

Dakhla offers some of the most perfect conditions for children to learn and improve their windsurfing. Flat water and lighter winds in the early morning and later in the afternoon makes it easy for them to practice. The combination of great conditions, special equipment and experienced friendly instructors ensures both fun and success. They get the feeling of this amazing sport. The groups are very small so we can ensure safety and fun.
