Kitesurfing red sea

Kite Safari in Egypt

In Egypt there are many  hotels with affordable prices, excellent weather, warm sea water, modern water parks. Among active types of recreation (diving Egypt, etc.) hurgada kitesurfing is very popular in this fabulous country. This sport involves the use of a special sail and kiteboard (board). The speed of movement depends on the strength of the wind. Most students manage the kite already in the first week.

WHAT KITE SAFARI INCLUDES

Guest accommodation on the yacht is carried out in the port city of Hurghada. Then follows the five-hour transition to the islands of Tawilla or Qeizum, which are characterized by shallow water and sandy bottom, which is ideal for kite safaris and surfing. 

 First, the instructor explains the technique of kite management. Next, a trapeze and a helmet are selected – in the Red Sea you can get injured on numerous corals, so the helmet is useful. Trapezium is used in two types: belt and sessile. For complex stunts are suitable belt, and for beginners the best option – sedentary trapezium. Management is quite simple – the main thing is to understand the mechanism of interaction with the kite.

Those who first get lost on the board are recommended to simply swim with the kite, directing it in different directions. This method of movement is called a bodidrag. Further it is suggested during the control of the kite to try to stand on it – it is important to keep the balance so that at the first attempts not to fall back into water. Many students quickly make progress and begin to perform various complex tricks. In any case, when choosing a kitesurfing red sea  usually everyone is happy! In combination with active recreation, customers receive delicious food and excellent living conditions.
