The Sportif kitesurfing centre in Safaga, Egypt sits on the beach in front of the Hotel Imperial Shams. A modern, spacious centre provide a full facility for renting the latest North kiteboarding equipment and ION wetsuits with flexible instruction packages.

Open  All Year.

The dedicated Kitesurf Centre on the beach in front of Hotel Imperial Shams. New, spacious centre. The kite zone is upwind from the windsurfing area and specifically a  zone for kitesurfers. There is a sandy, shallow bay with two large training areas with flatwater. The wind is side offshore/side shore from the left and the off shore chop conditions are ideal for tricks and jumps. The kite-zone infront of the center offers enough space for all kinds of tuition. Advanced kiters will find perfect freeride conditions to play and kite the whole day. There are a few small stones and coral, so it is recommended to wear boots.

Accessories available include new ION wetsuits, life vests and helmet. Kitesurf lessons from beginner up to expert level are available and can be booked in either groups or private lessons. For qualified kiters, minimum IKO level 3 standard, the full range of North kites and boards can be rented. There are 2 rescue boats on stand by if needed. SUP boards are available to voucher clients at no extra charge on windless days.
