Sharm El Sheikh – Egypt

General information

Nabq, a good spot the months from March to October. Easy to find great prices for hotels even at 4 or 5 star hotels and flights, especially outside the season peaks . Easy to hire equipment and excellent beaches in which to Kite. In Sharm, beyond of your 4/6 hours a day of kite, you will find a lovely touristic city.

For who?

If you got family, girlfriend/boyfriend or you do a vacation with No-Kiter-Friends, Nabq is a fair compromise. There are good Resort with all prices and services such as Aqua park and entertainment for children. For adults, other types of sports activities and evening “cheap multibrand shopping”. This location is well suited for beginners which I recommend staying at least 7 to 9 days.


Spots

The only really good spot is the lagoon in Nabq .
– The best place to go out is the beach of the Regency Plaza Resort or Sea Beach , no rocks or coral and a super wide output… ” hazard free ” if not for the cloud of kiters that animate the spot when the wind blows. Here is one of the top schools for the Kite “Kite Junkies ” an institution in Sharm:  for Triadvisor 7th best activitie in Sharm .
-800 Meters to the south you’ll find the ” Zouara BEACH ” a free beach ” is not tied to a resort where you will find the Candy Kite School, a former Italian school now in the hands of Abdul . Here it is easier to negotiate a better price for both: school and for the storage of your equipment . Less crowded with kiters but everyway present. Beware : the output is closer even if accessible , there are rocks / corals , both right and left of the large output channel and there are usually two motorboats moored slightly downwind and sometimes they are moved for doing Parasailing which takes place quite near the coast .

Wind

50% – 60% of windy days and when there is wind, it’s mostly thermal, slightly puffy. Usually starts at night where it reaches its maximum and must be degraded down to 6 knots in the afternoon. Usually in  the same day  you use two kite (9 sqm and 13 sqm), or even three kite (7mq, 9 sqm and 13 sqm) with 82 kg and standard board. P.S. the predictions of the various specialized sites there always guessed and usually underestimate the actual wind, someone  told me , because the mathematical models they use do not properly estimate the thermal wind.

Advice

Use winter  entire suit  (5/6 mm) from October to March, April to September entire summer suit (3 mm), believe me, that it will protect you, especially if you go out from Zoura Beach. Initially, also use kite shoes to protect your feet against coral and rocks. Better if you buy the shoes with very reinforced slab that you find for few Euros on the spot. Once you are sure of the spot, you can kite without the shoes. Be careful not to lose the table (bind them to you) because,  or some other kiters  retrieves it or the current will not help you. (If you miss the board raise your hand … it’s the signal  of help requesting)
