We are an independent water sports center in lovely Safaga on the Red Sea (Egypt). In a warm and friendly atmosphere you can enjoy your holidays to the fullest – much cosier and more sociable than you would find it in big centers. Whether you come for kitesurfing, wingfoiling, windsurfing, stand up paddling or you simply want to relax.
Our Center is located at the beach of the Paradies Abu Soma Resort. You might go Windsurfing, Wingsurfing/foiling, or Stand Up Paddling straight from the beach. From here you can also join our kite/wing trips and safaris. With our boats called Kite Adventure and Legends, our mobile kite/wing stations, we bring you to one of the best spots in the world: Soma Bay. The area is suitable for all skill levels: beginners will find ideal conditions for learning in the huge lagoon. Advanced riders can enjoy endless space in the turquoise waters of Soma Bay, regardless of the tides. The surface is mostly flat to choppy.
In addition to the water sports activities, you can enjoy the complete boat life in booking one of the cabins – either for a safari with the overnight stay on the spot or on the daily boat which goes back to the jetty in front of the Center.
