Kiteboarding Club El Gouna is situated at the biggest lagoon of the Red Sea. We have two spots, two ideal lagoons to practice, which are only reserved for kitesurfers:
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).Complete packages & book
Kitesurfing at the Red Sea.Book your holiday!
The legendary boat trip takes you to a dream kite spot on Tawila Island. The strong wind at the open sea makes Tawila a kite paradise for flat water lovers. Behind the very flat island („tawila“ is the Arabic word for „flat“) you find a kilometer long speedtrack. At this side of the island the wind is offshore. There will be a rescue boat on the island to guarantee your safety but nevertheless, each customer needs to have at least a VDWS-level 5. We organize the boat trip upon request.
When you are ready for this unforgettable experience, inform the office asap and we will do our best to find a group of minimum 10 participants.
On windy days, our professional photographer takes photos out on the water for 1-2 hours. She can be seen walking around the huge shallow lagoon snapping shots of your first waterstarts or document your best tricks. Every afternoon the photos are uploaded to our photo computer at the reception. You can create your own folder and choose your favorite shots. We then can burn the photos on a DVD for you at the end of your holiday. You rather have the photographer an hour to yourself for a private photo shooting? Then book your private session directly in our office.Book on site.
You can book our babysitter service per hour. Contact us before your departure when you want to book a babysitter during your stay at KBC El Gouna.Mail us!

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.
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!
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.
