Itinerary of the day trip


Departs from the Tornado Surf Center

It starts in the morning between 8 and 8:15 o’clock: Every day we drive you from the center to the kite and wing spot in Soma Bay. You either go to the spot with the Kite Adventure Boat or with a transfer boat, depending on whether the Kite Adventure Boat stayed at the spot overnight. The half-hour drive takes you along the coast - with a bit of luck you might even see a dolphin. If you are not in Safaga, we will pick you up with a transfer boat from one of the surrounding marinas.



Arrival at the spot

As soon as the boat is anchored at our spot, or you have arrived at the spot with a transfer boat, you can repare for your first kite or wing session of the day.


1st session

Check the wind strength, grab your equipment, pump with the compressor and off you go: Let's have fun!




What could be nicer after an extensive kite or wing session than dedicating yourself to lunch? Help yourself to the lovingly prepared buffet with various dishes, freshly prepared every day in the on-board kitchen. Recharge your batteries for the next round in the water.


Relaxe & Chill

Use the time for a relax in the on the sun deck or chill in the hammocks and bean bags under the shade roof.



2nd session

In the afternoon, Soma Bay awaits you in beautiful light. The perfect conditions for another session. Practice a new trick. The Soma Bay is available to you as a playground. Should something go wrong: Our rescue team keeps a constant eye on the area and will come to your aid with the Zodiac.



If the wind is good in the late afternoon, you can cover the five-kilometer route back to the center as a downwinder. Enjoy this end of the day along the coast accompanied by boat and land with the kite directly at the center in Safaga.



return trip

Now, it's "Apéro-Time", "Beer-o'clock" or just time for a cool drink: Because now we're going back to the Tornado Surf Center. Meanwhile, you can speak with others at the large table about the day's experiences or simply stretch your tired legs on the sun deck.

Our goal is:

…to give you a perfect holiday.
On our boat you spend the whole day with kiters - far away from the tourist hustle and bustle of the big hotel complexes. We anchor at the edge of the lagoon where you can jump straight into the water and get started. It doesn't matter whether you, as a student, do kite training with one of our experienced instructors, rent kite equipment or bring your own material, you are always welcome with us.

Our spot

Wind statistics

Spot description

Soma Bay not only offers a lot of wind and warm temperatures all year round but it is also one of the most beautiful kite spots on the Red Sea. The area is suitable for all skill levels: beginners will find ideal conditions for learning in the approx. 2 km² large lagoon, which is mostly knee to waist deep. Advanced riders, whether freeriders or freestylers, can enjoy endless space in the turquoise waters of Soma Bay, regardless of the tides. The surface is mostly flat to choppy. In the morning, the wind usually starts off-shore from the north-west – often around 5 to 10 knots stronger than the wind forecast predicts. At noon the wind turns to "sideshore" from the north. Depending on the time of year, the wind slowly dies down in the afternoon, but can also blow through until just before sunset.
