Who’s This Trip For:

The minimum level required to join this trip is to be riding consistently in both directions. You do not need to be riding upwind, however it’s essential that you can ride in both directions and perform an upwind body drag to retrieve your board independently. (If unsure just ask, we can always do an intense lesson program prior to the holiday, in order to get your riding to the required level)

This trip is suitable for students with a variety of different goals, whether that’s improving your upwind riding, riding toe-side, popping, jumping, grabs, back-rolls, front-rolls, aerial transitions, dark slides, one footers, riding blind, riding a surfboard, hydro-foiling etc, etc… Whatever your goal, Brad will be able to take your riding to the next level!

Why Come With Us To Dakhla:

Dakhla, Morocco, situated in the heart of the Western Sahara, is without doubt a kitesurfing mecca! Here you’ll find a vast lagoon, shallow in some spots and deeper in others. It’s a great place for learning to ride upwind, learning your first tricks/rotations, and even learning to hydrofoil.

There are a variety of spots offering everything from butter flat water, to chop, and even wave spots on the outside of the lagoon. The wind stats are fantastics for May and this is a great time to visit, avoiding the mass crowds in the middle of summer. It’s a very user friendly spot, should you drift downwind, you can simply walk upwind along the perimeter of the lagoon.

Accommodation:

The price is based on a shared bungalow between two people. Each bungalow is a twin room with two single beds, en suite with toilet, shower and basin, plus daily housekeeping services.

It is possible to upgrade to a single occupancy room for an addition charge. Please enquire for details should you wish.

Bear in mind, it is a kitesurfing holiday after-all, meaning you’ll spend very little time in the room. The majority of the time will be spent on the water or at the beach bar! Plus, there are plenty of cool hang out spots within the hotel complex allowing you to get some peace and quiet should you want some down time or work time. From previous trips, we found the WIFI to be great.

The bungalows are situated directly at the kitesurf spot and offer a unique experience. You’ll sleep surrounded by huge sand dunes, under a clear sky full of stars and wake up a few meters away from the water.

Food:

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner all included (Full board) meaning all costs are covered, you’ll be provided with a great spread of fresh and healthy food on a daily basis. There is plenty of choice!

Travel Information:

Return flights from London Gatwick to Dakhla cost about £350-£400 with Royal Air Maroc. The flights are amazing value for money. They include a 23kg hold bag, a 23kg kitesurf board bag, and a 10kg hand luggage! Plus you get a meal and drink included on each leg of the flight. You don’t need to select seats as this is an additional cost.

Once your trip deposit has been received we’ll send through our flight details so you can match them when booking your flight. Ensure you book a flight from Gatwick to Dakhla, this will automatically split the flights into two legs. They offer a number of flights, and some have extremely long layovers, so don’t get caught out on this. We all need to arrive together. Website: www.royalairmaroc.com

Kitesurfing Equipment:

  • You will need to bring your own kitesurf equipment and board bag. (Should you require any kitesurf equipment such as board bags, kites, harnesses etc, get in touch as we can order these for you)
  • Recommended kite sizes 12m, 9m, 7m or 12m, 10m, 8m
  • If you have more kite sizes available, bring them or at least check the forecast the day before we travel. It’s better to have the kites with you than sitting at home
  • You can rent kitesurf equipment from Be-Rad Watersports, drop us an email for rental details

How To Reserve Your Space:

To reserve your space on this trip, email info@be-rad.co.uk confirming you’d like to join our 2024 trip. There are only a handful of spaces available. Spaces are reserved on a first come first serve basis.

We’ll reply with a booking invoice. A deposit of £500 will be taken to secure your place. Please be aware the deposit is non refundable unless we are able to find a replacement to fill your space.

Coaching Included:

Prior to departure, you will be emailed a goal sheet to complete. As your coach, Brad will create a personalised route to develop your kitesurfing based on your current level and what you wish to achieve by the end of the week.

Each morning we’ll conduct the video analysis sessions as a group. There will also be a number of group land based lessons that we’ll fit around the wind.

When it’s time to hit the water, we’ll be splitting you into pairs to create a buddy system. You will be paired with another rider of a similar ability. You’ll be given individual goals to work on and Brad’s time will be spread between the pairs offering personalised coaching. The group coaching will last for 4 hours per day.

We will ride on the spacious lagoon outside the bungalows or at the speed spot a tiny tractor drive away. The aim of this trip is to give you a serious element of one to one attention and then leave you space to absorb, free ride and practise the techniques suggested.

Additional Tuition & Excursions:

  • Where available, additional private 1:1 tuition is available upon request. This will be charged at the Be-Rad Watersports standard private kite tuition rate (£65 Per Hour)
  • We’ll plan a few speed spot sessions and even a downwinder. These excursions are organised by Dakhla Attitude kite school and therefore incur a small additional fee. (Minimum level required)

Photos & Videos Included For Free:

At the end of the week, you’ll get free access to our log of photos & videos captured though the week
