Welcome to Kite Junkies
Welcome to Kite Junkies
Kite Junkies was born on the 1st of July 2007. Kev, Diane and Pedro are your hosts at Sharm El Sheikh’s first and only Kitesurfing Centre. The centre is located in Nabq, a newly developed area on the north side of Sharm el Sheikh.
Only 10 minutes from the airport and on the doorstep of many new low-rise 5 star resorts the spot remains picturesque and unspoilt.
We believe that your time spent here should be more of an experience and not just a kitesurfing holiday. Whether you’re a total beginner or an advanced rider the Kite Junkies team will do their best to attend to your every kitesurfing need.
For beginners we offer certified IKO training courses so you’re assured that you’re in safe hands with one of our instructors. As well as IKO level I, II and III beginner courses which cover everything from basic kite skills to your first rides, we can put together a tailor made package of instruction to help your skills development.
For advanced riders the minimum requirement to kite at our location is that you get a service package and you’ll be equally looked after. Whether it’s having your kit packed away at the end of the day because that cold beer just somehow seems more appealing or simply having your board brought back to you that’s what we’re here for.
For those lazy kiters amongst us (nothing wrong with that) we have compressor stations to pump your kite, and our beach staff will lay out your lines ready for your first session of the day. If you can’t leave home without your laptop then you can take advantage of the free Wi-Fi at the centre.
If it’s not just a pure kitesurfing holiday and you’re in Sharm El Sheikh with the family it doesn’t get better than this. Being located along a public promenade which runs along the front of the local hotels, the access to shops, bars and restaurants makes it ideal for the non kiters. Whether you take a leisurely walk or rent one of the many available electric scooters the promenade offers plenty. Alternatively you can just chill out on one of the sun loungers and enjoy the entertainment. Food and drinks are available all day long from the nearby beach bar.
Our centre is located directly on the beach within the grounds of the Regency Plaza Resort. The Resort is only 10 minutes from Sharm el Sheikh Airport.
The riding area is fringed by a reef creating a huge flat water lagoon with most areas knee to chest deep, the riding areas are never affected by the tides. The wind is predominately cross to cross-onshore. Sharm El Sheikh shares the same wind as Dahab with a high percentage of days blowing 20 knots or more.
With over 3 square kilometres of flat water to play on it’s the perfect playground for the complete beginner or the more advanced rider learning new tricks. With most of the kitesurfing riding area being shallow it’s pretty difficult to get into trouble.
