Seahorse Bay kite spot in Al-Bahr al-ahmar

Africa kitesurf spot in Egypt

Seahorse Bay is one of those dreamy flat water kitesurfing spots in Egypt that have had kite schools from the very beginning, and remain popular to this day. Several of the big German companies call this their home in Egypt and for good reason, with stunning crystal clear water, wind for most of the year and perfect kitesurfing conditions from total beginners up to professional freestyle kitesurfers. The local area doesn’t offer much in the way of traditional Egyptian history, but you can fly cheap from most European countries, it’s warmer than Europe, and Seahorse Bay offers great flat water kitesurfing without the crowds that you’ll normally find at some spots in Hurghada itself.

Kitesurfing wind conditions in Seahorse Bay

Kitesurfing is possible in Egypt year round, but the main kitesurfing season is from March/April until the end of October. Generally there are two peaks in the wind, once in about June, and the other in September when you can almost guarantee wind. During August it gets very hot and the thermal wind dies off a little, so it can leave you without wind if you are unlucky, but you can still normally kitesurf the majority of days through the whole season. The winter months from November until March are less of a sure thing, but you can still get good conditions, and it can make for a nice break from a dreary European winter.

The water is flat to choppy here depending on the wind strength and the tide. Advanced kitesurfers will love it at low tide when the pools appear and the water is at its absolute flattest, but should watch out for really shallow patches! You can kitesurf at any tidal state, but the best bet is to ask the local schools for any dangers when arriving at any new spot.
