Full description
Choose to make your own way to the center or and optional transfer from El Gouna or Hurghada. When you arrive at the center you’ll be greeted, signed in, and personally shown around all of the facilities before starting your journey to becoming a certified kitesurfer on a 2-hour group kitesurfing lesson.  Before you get started with the equipment, you will go through all you need to know about wind theory. Then you'll head to the equipment room to be kitted out before following your instructor to the beach to learn how to safely set up your equipment.   Once your equipment is ready to go, it’s time for the fun to begin. Head straight out into the water and get your first experience of piloting a kite and learn some basic kite-control skills. After completing your session, you’ll be shown how to pack away the equipment.   Once you’ve completed your full introduction to kite boarding, you may choose to have your riding level certified as a Level 1 Discovery Kiteboarder. You will then have the rest of the day to enjoy and to make use of the center’s facilities. Relax on the beach, eat and drink in the bar and restaurant, play some beach volleyball, table tennis, or hang around and get social with some of the other kitesurfers.

I had a 4 hour session by Taha, Nomad. He was very knowledgable and affable. He took me through in detail every aspect of the gear, safe attachment of the kite and safety features of the kit. It kis far more technical than you may think and its very important to learn these aspects. We went out into the water. He was very patient with me as I struggled to control the kite, however with his guidance managed to safely move the kite from 9 o'clock to 3 o'clock and get a feel for the wind! Unfortunately we ran out of time as I had a prior appointment. I realsied then that I should have booked this earlier in my stay to allow for at least 3 more lessons to master kite surfing. Taha is excellent and I highly recommend him and the Nomad Team [Gogo being the head]. The whole facility is amazing with areas to eat, drink and chill. Be sure to take plenty of water as you will need it half way through the lesson as gets very hot with the wet suit on. Will definitely book again when next in Gouna!!

Nice guide, found him to be professional, understandable English, cheerful, well organized. It was a good start for further courses. We wanted to see if kiting was fun for us. Pack bathing shoes. stones and shells in the water. Water is clean as usual and shallow. course is recommended
