Dakhla - Morocco, Africa

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, lagoon which stretches into the Atlantic Ocean, creating a huge space to enjoy your sports. 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. This is also the location of Kirsty Jones Kitesurf Camps.

Sailing Spot & Conditions
The huge sandy lagoon provides predominantly flat water conditions with excellent wind conditions. As an added bonus, the other side of the peninsula offers perfect wave conditions which can be reached within a short 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 flat and thus offers amazing 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 is the wave spot, perfect for wave riding and surfing.

Wind & Waves
The wind blows throughout the year, on average of 320 days with 12 knots+ - 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.
