Sultan Kite School

kite surfing

Lessons

It usually takes around 3-4 days to learn the basics of kitesurfing and ride your first few meters. In the beginning, you’ll get acquainted with wind theory and the first moves in kite-school. Then our instructor will show you kite equipment and how to prepare the equipment for use.

Kiteboarding is an extreme sport so it’s important to conduct thorough safety training. After these stages you’ll be ready for your first kite launch, where you’ll feel the real power of kitesurfing & immediately understand why it’s so much fun!

pricing

The cost of each course includes the Instructor’s work, equipment rental, trapezoid, hydro-taps, insurance for the period of the training, helmet, and, of course, the entire service of the center. If you plan to visit us in the winter (December – February), we recommend you take a long wetsuit (5 mm thick) with you. On request, you can rent waterproof radio helmets from us, which are very useful in the last hours of the training, during a body dredge, or when you’re already on the board. Even at a considerable distance from your instructor, you’ll still clearly hear him speaking to you!

Best kite spot in Hurghada I have been to many spots in Hurghada and I can rightfully call this spot the best. Advantages: + a lot of shallows - and of any depth - if you want to learn new tricks, you go a little further (subject to low tide) + the depth is also close and you can safely ride on the foil + a huge amount of space - no one bothers anyone + small number of students - it’s very easy to leave and not interfere with their studies + there are few corals - there are a lot of places where there are none at all, you choose a place and jump and are not afraid to fall - you can skate without slippers + sunbeds on the spot + shower, stored, desalination + sincere guys - station workers - there is no feeling that they want to deceive you and all they need from you is only money, as in all of Egypt. They will always help if something is wrong with the equipment, launch and landing always see you, launch safely, always wait if someone else with a raised kite comes out or comes in. For 10 days there was not a single trash talk at the station. I found only 1 minor drawback - there were pebbles entering the water. I had to wear slippers, and I don’t like riding in them. Although, when the tide is high, most of the entrance is under water and only a small strip with stones remains, you can go in anyway. We will definitely come again! Sultan and team - hello everyone!

Tripkite Thanks to the entire Sultan Kites School team, I had a great week and rented the school's equipment for 5 days. First kitetrip without my equipment and I really appreciated (a real luxury) not having to worry about the gear. What a pleasure to ride. The spot is magnificent, at the foot of the AMC hotel. The team is friendly and full of services. Good and quick organization for rigging, takeoff/landing of the wings. The wind drops you ask and in 5 minutes your wing has changed. Eleveight and cabrinha materials Used 9/12/14m during the week.

Best Kitesurfing School Great people, very professional and always smiling. Instructors were able to make us surf after 3 days only starting from zero. Whatever your level is, you would find the adequate equipments. The lagoon is the perfect place to surf! Highly recommend
