You just need to learn how to control the kite and the wind.
If you have started to learn kite surfing somewhere else, but did not achieve the results you wanted, this course is exactly what you need. We will evaluate your level and tailor the lessons to your needs.
This course lasts for 3-4 days. Each day, you will have a morning session with an instructor for 1.5 hours, followed by a short rest and independent practice on the water. The lagoon is very safe and ideal for learning. We use walkie-talkies for better communication with beginners.
If you overestimate your ability to learn kite surfing quickly, you can pay the difference up to a 10-hour course and continue learning.

EASY KITE BEGINNER
5-6 days course - 490 USD
Ten hours of kiteboarding lessons with a personal instructor
You will get a full set of necessary equipment (kite, board, wetsuit, helmet, harness) for the duration of the course, which is 5-6 days. It is suitable for beginners who have no experience in kiteboarding. You will learn how to kite safely and confidently in various conditions.
The course consists of three main stages:
• First, you will learn how to control a kite.
• Second, you will learn how to generate power with the kite and how to use it to move across the water.
• Third, you will combine these skills with board control and start making your first rides.
Each stage usually takes one day or two hours of instructor-led training. You will also have unlimited access to the equipment on the days of the course so that you can practice on your own after the sessions with the instructor.
The uniqueness of our offer is that, unlike other kite schools, we give you the opportunity to practice without time limits. Approximately on the second or third day (after you have mastered the basics), you will be able to use unlimited rental on the days of classes to practice the acquired skills on your own, after sessions with a kite instructor.
After completing the course, you will receive a 50% discount on equipment rental and IKO registration.

Kite spot diagram
Playkite Watersports has been helping people to learn kite surfing safely since 2003. Many kite schools in Vietnam, Thailand, Sri Lanka, and Europe were founded by our former students.
We are not chasing the wind around the world. The wind blows here all year round. The station, during its work in Egypt, never went on vacation or weekends.
Beginner-friendly atmosphere rules at Playkite. You will dive into the kite surf culture and meet the pioneers of the sport. An evening chill-out in the company of experienced riders and travellers will replace months of training or searching.
Our water area is a natural phenomenon that features two square kilometers of shallow water with a clean bottom. Wind statistics - 270 windy days a year. The coastline location relative to the wind rose is so that the wind can not carry you away to the open sea.
Unlike other shallow lagoons in Egypt, ours does not have a coral edge at the border of deep water. The lagoon is safe and suitable for kiting even at low tide.
Egypt’s record for high jump with a kite (Woosports) is set here. It is the perfect kite spot. Beginners learn quickly and experienced kiteboarders progress rapidly in kiteboarding.
The second location is inside the residential area of Hurghada at a compound called “Royal Beach Hurghada”.
