location
Seperator

The Somabay peninsula is reached from Central Europe in only 4 hours by plane. It is situated 45 km south of Hurghada and it’s just 30 minutes by car from Hurghada International Airport. The spot is a true gem of nature, embedded between the heavenly Red Sea and the impressive Red Sea Mountains.

wind
Seperator

The location and the difference in temperature between mountains and sea provide the side offshore winds of Somabay; thermic winds getting stronger the higher the temperatures. Thanks to the constant early winds, the all year wind statistic is fantastic. For more information, check out our wind&weather graphic.

right of way rules
Seperator

For more fun and fairness on the water, some rules have to be observed. 1) Wind from port gives way to wind from starboard = right hand leading means priority. 2) Windward gives way to leeward 3) Keep clear while overtaking. 4) The rider entering the water has right of way. Check out the video for more information!

Rosy on duty!

Dear Rosi takes her task as guard dog of the KiteHouse very seriously. But even if she looks at you with her big brown eyes as if she was not fed in 10 days: don’t fall for it! She gets enough food! But we have to admit, once it comes to food, Rosi is an excellent actress and melts the hearts of even the toughest guys! Still: please don’t feed her!
