West Point Surfing and Kitesurfing Centre - Dakhla - Western Sahara, Africa

Kitesurfing Icon SUP/Surfing Icon


Located just steps away from the Atlantic Ocean, the centre will provide both surf and kitesurf courses for every experience level, as well as equipment for rental. Due to its location, you’ll be able to enjoy perfect waves in the Atlantic which will suit more advanced riders, however, you can also take advantage of the conditions in the lagoon, which will suit beginners and intermediates. 

Situated on the west coast of Dakhla’s peninsula and only a few steps away from the Atlantic ocean, this centre provides you with waves right on your doorstep, making it the ideal location if you are a surfer or an advanced kitesurfer. However, if you are a beginner or intermediate looking for flat waters, you can take advantage of the nearby lagoon and our twin centre.


The sports centre sells various products which you might need for your holiday, such as sun screen or t-shits. Just outside the centre you can find a relaxing area with sun beds as well as a tennis table and a trampoline. Right next door you will find a restaurant with an asian inspired cuisine, where you can also enjoy cocktails and other drinks after a day spent in the water.

The West Point Surfing and Kitesurfing centre offers both kitesurf and surf equipment to rent, as well as courses for both watersports which cover every experience level and can be either private, semi-private or group lessons. These courses are run by IKO or VDWS certified instructors and a rescue and assistance service is available for your safety. If you are not comfortable riding waves, the centre will offer you a free shuttle service to its twin centre, where you can ride in the flat waters of Dakhla’s lagoon, and you can also enjoy trips to other popular spots or practice other activities, all of which will be booked locally at the centre.

Please Note: You may be required to pay a damage waiver fee, locally at the centre, or leave a credit card deposit against potential damage, before rental equipment can be taken. 
Sportif recommend you take insurance to cover third party liability, as well as medical and general travel insurance, which is required as part of our terms and conditions of booking. However, your insurance may not provide cover for damage to equipment that is rented, so worth checking in advance of travel.
