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.

return trip


If the Kite Adventure Boat doesn't stay overnight at the spot, it's time to enjoy "Apéro-Time", "Beer-o'clock" or simply a cool soft 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. If the Kite Adventure stays at the spot overnight, we will bring you back with a transfer boat.

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.
