Dakhla - Morocco, Africa

Dakhla in Morocco offers kitesurfing and windsurfing holidays and camps with outstanding flat water & wave conditions. Join a Kirsty Jones Kitesurfing Camp, multsport or wave courses which are suitable for all levels.

Dakhla is a superb multi sport location, good for singles, friends or groups with outstanding windsurf & kitesurf conditions year round. Situated just 1000km south of Essaouira, located on a 48km long and 4km wide peninsula which stretches into the Atlantic Ocean, creating a huge lagoon to enjoy your sports with plenty of space. This active desert adventure holiday location has luxury camp accommodation and top quality windsurf centre and kitesurf centre on the spot providing instruction, rental and resident kite camps.

Sailing Spot & Conditions

The huge sandy lagoon provides fantastic conditions with constant winds throughout the whole year as well as flat water. From beginners to professionals everybody will find kitesurfing at its best here. As an added bonus the other side of the peninsula offers perfect wave conditions which can be reached within no time by car. The spot is a 40km long and 13 km wide lagoon, created by the peninsula of Dakhla which stretches into the Atlantic Ocean.

Due to the side-shore winds from the north, the water is completely flat and thus offers perfect conditions for practicing and learning, as well as freestyle and racing. Depending on high and low tide there is an up to 300 meter long shallow water area right in front of the center. After 5 minutes drive to the other side of the peninsula of Dakhla you reach fantastic wave spots, perfect for wave riding and surfing.

Shorty or steamer wetsuit and shoes recommended.

Wind & Waves

The wind blows constantly throughout the year. More than 320 days with 12 knots+ gives Dakhla some of the most consistent wind stats year round. The wind direction is north-easterly and blows side-shore from the right.

This makes the water inside the lagoon super flat close to the beach and gets choppier the further away you get. The wave spots are on the other side of the peninsular where the wind blows slightly side-onshore and is normally a few knots weaker than inside the lagoon.
