Wind, Weather & Tides
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.
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!
