Dakhla Kitesurf Centre (Duotone/North) - Dakhla - Western Sahara, Africa

Kitesurfing Icon SUP/Surfing Icon

The Dakhla kitesurfing centre in Morocco is situated in the same location as the Dakhla windsurfing centre and offers the latest North kiteboarding equipment for rental and full IKO I, II and III level training programme.

Open All year.

The kitesurf centre is situated to the north-eastern coast of the Dakhla peninsular with a 40km long and 13km wide lagoon which stretches into the Atlantic Ocean. The side-shore winds from the north, mean that the water is completely flat inside the lagoon and therefore offers perfect conditions for practicing and learning. Outside the lagoon it gets a little bit choppier where it is good for 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 centre. After a 5 minutes drive to the other side of the peninsula of Dakhla you reach fantastic wave spots, perfect for wave riding and surfing. The wind blows constantly throughout the whole year. More than 320 days with more than 12 knots make Dakhla a pure pleasure.

The centre includes a shop, a nice chill-out corner and plenty of equipment. It is located just in front of the Ocean Vagabond restaurant, with an amazing view over the whole lagoon. From the centre it is only a few steps to the water. The terrace of the centre is protected from the wind, so that families and partners who don´t sail can comfortably stay on the beach and watch the action on the water from there. Showers, WC’s and changing rooms can also be found in the centre. Accessories available include ION wetsuits, life vests and helmets. WiFi is available at the centre.

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. Excursions to the wave spot are by 4x4 vehicle, which is booked and paid for locally. Limited storage space is available for those with their own equipment at an additional charge. (This is required to be booked in advance to guarantee availability.) Activities available from the centre include windsurfing, kitesurfing, SUP, surfing, kayaking and catamaran sailing. There are also SUP excursions available.
