WINDSURFING EGYPT

SPOT DAHAB

What’s unique worldwide about Dahab is the diversity of the different areas: a protected lagoon for beginners, a flat speed track and groundswell waves outside the headland are perfectly combined at one spot. In addition to an amazing mountain scenery, turquoise water and 300 days of wind over 4 Bft a year.

With 250 JP Boards and NP Riggs, the Harry Nass Centre in Dahab are the largest JP/NP Centre in Egypt and received an award by the Egyptian Ministry of Tourism in 2011 as the best windsurfing and kite centre.

The two centres are located at the most wind-favourable launch sites in the Bay of Dahab. Our Centre 1 at the Tirana Hotel, within the protected windsurf lagoon and with the kite lagoon right next to it, as well as our Centre 2 at the Jaz Dahabeya, with a beam- reach course to the speed track and the wave.

Thanks to the complimentary boat shuttle service between the centres, every guest can make use of all the services available at any of the Harry Nass Centre. Our windsurf and kite training takes place at Centre 1. Due to the protective headland and the direct access to the lagoon, even less experienced windsurfers are safe from drifting off.

Because of the diversity of the spot each surfer, from beginner to pro, gets his money’s worth.

The spot impresses with its all-round qualities, cross shore wind from the left without turbulence, shallow water and standing area on the sandbanks.

Windsurfers and kitesurfers alike will get the most out of this area.

The islands are 700m upwind and can easily be reached with a few tacksdepending on the wind direction. In winter and spring the morning wind is more likely to be cross-offshore so that one can get to the islands directly in one run.
