Kitefoiling Coaching Camps
Soma Bay, Egypt 28th Apr - 5th May 2022
We’re back after a two year break due to covid restrictions which stopped the majority of our international coaching but what a way to kick it all off again, with a trip to Soma Bay, Egypt.
Soma Bay is the perfect way to kick start your kiting season. Here’s why;
- Warm water, consistent winds and butter flat seas makes this spot an ideal location for really accelerating your kitefoiling progression at the start of the season. Perfectly suited to the intermediate kitefoiler looking to work with us to polish existing techniques and master new skills without the distraction of waves and choppy waters.
- Based in The Breakers, a newly built kite and diving focused hotel, offering lovely half-board, air-conditioned rooms, with an extensive daily themed buffet dinner. Price is for two people sharing, though an inexpensive single occupancy is also available as is optional sea views.
- Full day kiting options that will ensure maximum progression. Thermal winds blow strongest in the mornings so we start early on the water, but as the wind moderates into the afternoon, the twin tip riders disperse and we often end the day with the whole bay to ourselves.
- Unique filming and photography opportunities to maximise your kite foiling development, a cornerstone of our daily personalised coaching plans.
