Kitesurfing Basics

Kitesurfing is a wind powered surface watersport using a kite and a board to move across the water.

Kitesurfing harnesses the power of the wind through a large kite to propel a rider across the water on a small surfboard or a kiteboard (similar to a wakeboard).

Although the name includes surfing, kitesurfing does not need waves, the wind is the only force needed to power you along.

Yes, if you are reasonably fit and you are keen enough to persist and learn.  Like skiing, technique is a lot more important that brute strength.

No.  Around 5 lessons should get you going with basic skills and another 5 to 10 sessions should see you going upwind.

There is really no difference.  The terms are used interchangeable.

Yes.  You fly the kite to the front of the wind window in your direction of travel (like reefing a mainsail in), edge your board to create a “keel”, and steer with your feet to create a “rudder”.  Kitesurfers are actually classified as sailing vessels.

No.  Most kitesurfers use leading edge inflatable kites. The leading edge spanning the length of the kite, and several struts spanning the width of the kite are inflated before launching.  If the kite falls into the water whilst kiting, it will nicely float on top of the water, enabling you to relaunch it.   Having said this, never attempt kitesurfing if you cannot swim.  As a beginner, you will spend a lot of time in the water, and basic swimming skills are necessary.

No. But it does help to be fit.  With good technique, you can kitesurf without needing great strength.   However, you will burn approximately 900 calories (3,765 joules) per hour during an average kitesurfing session, and get an intense abs/arms/back and leg workout, so kitesurfing is a great way to get fit!

Whilst there is nothing wrong with learning at a kite centre in a group environment, we understand that our clients want to make the most out of their time and advantages of private lessons structured specifically for your needs enable you to progress quickly, safely and with the full focus of your instructor without the constraints of lesson times and limits with a dedicated personal service.

Why Dakhla?

Dakhla is a huge lagoon in the middle of the desert in southern Morocco. The scenery is epic, the wind is constant, the flights from Europe are reasonable and it is one of the best places for a group to go and immerse themselves in kitesurf culture and desert living allowing them to focus on their riding and improvement.

Accommodation

There are two main accommodation options in Dakhla, the Spirit Camp (bedouin tents and small bungalows on the side of the lagoon) or the Spirit Surf House (a 4 floor luxury house a short drive away from the lagoon with everything you need). We recommend the camp, because it is part of the Dakhla desert experience to sleep next to the lagoon and only have to walk out of your room to kite and make the most of your time. However we realise that for those with children and group members who do not kite, the house may be a more suitable option.

Other things to do in Dakhla

  • surfing trips
  • Stand Up Paddle boarding (SUP)
  • desert dune trips
  • oyster farms
  • local markets
