Freeride spot with divine upwind sandbanks
Ever since 1999, Harry Nass Centres have stood for high quality and service that goes beyond..
Having received an honorary award by the Egyptian Ministry of Tourism in 2011 as the best windsurfing and kite centre, we continue to offer our guests the latest equipment, professional training, personal service and support for unlimited fun on the water.
The Harry Nass Centres sport the largest selection of JP/ NP in Egypt.
In Hurghada, our centre is equipped with as many as 145 JP boards and 130 NP riggs.
We never book our centres to maximum capacity to ensure you always have plenty of boards and sails to choose from.
Each guest receives a “fixed board” – however, you are free to switch to a smaller or larger board or sail depending on the wind conditions. It goes without saying that a rigging team is there for you.
Our centre is located in a small bay with a large freeride area and a little windblown chop right ahead.
The Caribbean-like sandbanks lie 700m to windward and with an offshore wind in the morning you can reach these in one tack. Around noon the wind usually shifts cross shore from the left so it may take around 4 to 5 tacks.
Depending on the tide and the resulting different water levels, surfing conditions on the sandbanks can vary. At low tide and when the sandbanks are dry, you can find the finest flatwater to the lee of the sandbanks.

The Harry Nass centers are world-famous for their extensive and professional windsurf training. We offer windsurfing lessons every day, in several languages and for all levels. Our windsurfing instructors are VDWS trained. The Vdws is an international training association that stands for compliance with European safety and quality standards.
The windsurfing courses take place within, but also outside of the small bay in front of the centre. Intermediate to advanced courses are taught at the sandbanks. A shuttle-boat service is included in our courses. A rescue boat is always on standby.
For many years now we are the only centre in Egypt to offer a complimentary walkie-talkie system. The walkie-talkies make it possible for our guests to contact the centre directly. Precise directions enable us to assist (and rescue) windsurfers and kiters faster and safer.
We offer this radio rescue service for free at all Harry Nass Centres during our opening hours.
On windless days our guests are free to use our complimentary SUP boards.
