Spot 1 lies at the center. It is a long private sandy beach with a width of more than 800 meters. You have enough space to start and land your kite or to leave it on the beach. The shallow lagoon of several square kilometers in size is situated at our private beach and makes it easy and safe to start in the water.

Spot 2: The second beach lies 800 meters north of our famous KBC center. We do our KBC events here but more advanced kiters are also more than welcome to join us for a bit of practice as there is enough space for everyone. The lagoon is around 800 meters wide and knee deep. You can barely find stones or reef here. You can reach the spot by making a small upwinder (about 10 minutes for an advanced kiter).

We are happy to show you both spots on site.

Since plastic is not fantastic

KBC El Gouna is participating in the KBC 4 Clean Oceans initiative: Disposable bottles cause a huge amount of plastic waste. At a kite center such as KBC El Gouna (with an average of 150 guests and 40 employees), around 200 empty plastic bottles arrive every day. That's 73,000 a year! The plastic bottles end up in the garbage, when loading garbage disposal unfortunately often on the road and then blow in the worst case into the sea. We want to solve this problem and dispense with disposable plastic bottles.

Therefore, we offer clean, filtered, healthy drinking water from decanters or the KBC drinking bottle at the center. The bottle is a beautiful reusable stainless steel bottle from mizu, which can be refilled again and again and has a very long life.

Wind, Weather & Tides

Wind & Weather

The wind almost always blows side-onshore (direction north- northwest) and comes directly from the Red Sea, which makes it very stable and not turbulent. Mostly we have more wind than predicted in most weather forecasts. Our experience tells us that Windguru gives the most accurate forecasts for our spot. The ´modified wind´ or ´wind gusts´ forecasts the real wind here in our spot.

In winter (December to February) the wind is not as stable as the rest of the year. During that time there are more light and strong windy days. The air temperatures are still mild during the day, but as soon as the sun goes down it gets fresh. So better bring warm long clothes and a beanie.

In spring and fall we advise a shorty. Temperatures in that time of year are still enjoyable – around 22 degrees – comparable to European summers.

In summertime you only need a lycra and boardshorts. But certainly do not forget to bring good protective sunblock all year round!


Wind statistic El Gouna Kiteboarding Club measurements kite wind

High and low tide in our lagoon

The water difference in our shallow lagoon is dependable on the tides, between 20-70cm. Generally, the water level is a little higher in winter so you can safely kite in the lagoon. In summer however, and especially around full moon, the lagoon can be completely drained for several hours. During that time, you can only kitesurf behind our reef. But don´t you worry, our rescue boat is always available in case you need help.
