COURSE ORGANISATION AND SAFETY

We understand that besides professional tuition, the most important thing when it comes to learning to kitesurf is time to practice. This is why we organize all of our lessons in a way to maximize your time with the kite, without sacrificing your safety of course.

Whenever the conditions allow it, our instructors will make sure you have your own kite to practice, train, and make mistakes in a safe and protected environment. 

In order to provide you with instant feedback especially during our advanced lesson program, our instructors use Radio Headsets enabling them to communicate with you while riding.

FLEXBILITY

We understand that choosing a kitesurf lesson package from home might be difficult. Don´t worry! No matter which package you choose, if during the lesson the instructor realizes that another package would be more suitable for you, you can always change that on site. You will never have to join a lesson, which actually doesn´t suit your expectations or level.

After every session your instructor will give you detailed feedback and recommendation on how to continue – no matter which course you initially booked. Your success and progress is all that matters to us!

              A word about

              ION CLUB Safaga

              Located about 50 kilometers south of Hurghada, the Egyptian destination of Safaga is home to many scuba diving clubs, and is also one of the best wingsurfing and kitesurfing spots in Egypt. The contrast between the deep blue and turquoise colours of the Red Sea, and the arid mountains of the hinterland makes Safaga a fantastic setting for your kitesurfing or wingfoiling trip in this particularly windy desert. Since 1991, the ION CLUB Safaga center, close to the Shams hotels, has been one of the best addresses among the kitesurfing centers in Egypt. ION CLUB Safaga has offered kitesurfing since 2003, with courses and rentals on offer. Recently we offer wingfoiling courses and rental. One of the highlights of the spot for all kitesurfers and wingfoilers are the organized trips to the paradise island of Tobia, a small sandy island located close by.

              BEST PERIODS

              March, April, May, June, September, October, November

              WIND

              In the morning, the wind blows side-offshore, coming from the left when looking at the sea, turning side-shore around noon. The wind conditions in the morning favour kitesurfing and windsurfing beginners. It is also a perfect opportunity for independent kiters to take advantage of an excursion to Tobia Island, a sandy island surrounded by turquoise water less than 4 kilometers from the ION CLUB center ... not to be missed! In the afternoon, the wind turns to side-shore and often becomes stronger, around 20-25 knots, sometimes a little more until the end of the day. In order to limit incidents between kitesurfers and windsurfers, two separate areas are set up, and the few coral areas are clearly marked. You can relax and sail without risk … the Safaga kitesurfing and windsurfing center has thought of everything!

              WAVES

              Spot without waves, sometimes a little choppy if the wind is strong

              HOW TO GET THERE ?

              From Hurghada Airport

              After leaving Hurghada airport, take the new highway south to Safaga. Follow the highway for about 45 minutes (60 km), then take the first exit before Safaga. After about 200 meters, turn left in front of the Amarina Hotel and drive to the end of the road, where you will find the Shams Hotels and the ION CLUB center.
