Safaga Hotel Shams , Egypt

This spot is good for beginners or advanced people who would like to practice freestyle tricks. No real waves. Tides are irregular but shallow, only difference is whether you can use the shallow water area in the kite zone of Hotel Shams. The shallow area gets very crowded with beginners. Some big stones in the water, watch your legs. The beach is about 300m wide and about 30m deep. On the beach, the wind is slightly gusty, but you can stand in the water (maximum up to your knees) and your assistant at the edge of the water when you launch. Makes safe launching very easy. Unfortunately, if you are not living in the Hotel Shams, you have to pay to get onto the beach. Kite sizes usually 10-16. Wind is almost always N or NW to N more constant, NW slightly offshore and more gusty (rescue boat available). The wind is most reliable in the summer (very reliable), autumn is also great, winter is ok. Gusty winds near shore when it it (slightly) offshore. The hot, dry wind means that you need a slightly bigger kite for the same wind force (the air is less dense).
