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.
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.
