Sun, turquoise water, constant wind and a several-square-mile lagoon with shallow water offer kitesurfers of all skill levels the best conditions to enjoy an unforgettable vacation and to improve quickly. Novices, in particular, will benefit from our beginner courses with professional instructors and from the largest shallow area of all the kite centers in ​​El Gouna, which makes it much easier to get started with kite and board. The Kiteboarding Club at El Gouna (Egypt) is our largest kitesurfing center. We are open all year and we have more than 100 kites and 60 boards for rental. We also offer a restaurant right on the spot, a superbly trained team of instructors, helpful beach staff, a rescue boat, a compressor to inflate the kites, a kite repair workshop and much more.

Second visit to this center and already planning a third. Had not kitesurfed since my previous visit in November, however, the staff offered a number of alternatives of which the one-to-one sessions proved an ideal fit.

I have kitesurfed in many places but never have I experienced such a fantastic set up as KBC in El Gouna. To have everything on site - management office, bookings, sales, rentals, repairs, storage, lessons, showers, drying racks, bar, restaurant, beach kite attendants, even massage - in such a well run and relaxed beach club was a revelation! I would... More

Just returned from seven days kitesurfing at this centre. The centre is very clean, the equipment in better condition than my own with more than enough to cater for all with a full range of kites for the majority of winds. The office staff are friendly and efficient. The beach staff were fantastic and the rescue boat quick to respond... More

We took the Diamond Rental package for half a day plus the insurance premium. Cost around £100 for us both (£50 each). This included all gear rental, a free drink each and use of sun beds plus no pumping up kites etc. All done for you and if you don't like the size of kite/board etc then the beach boys... More

I had an amazing stay at KBC and really can recommend the center to everyone, from absolute beginner to pro. The staff is really professional, friendly and helpful, renting equipment in a perfect condition and you really get a lot for you money. I will surely kite with KBC again! :)

Good flat water spot for kiteboarding, but bring your own stuff, rental equipment is pretty outdated, wornout kites and gear, had to change 5 times the board but all board had complete wornout footstraps, after 5 weeks wounds @ my feet are stil not healed, a shame, as it is a perfect spot with decent facilities, crew was not that...

Hi Hans, Sorry to hear that you weren't happy with our rental gear. After your feedback we investigated and found an issue with the food straps: If you wear big neoprene shoes they open sometimes because of a too short food strap on the top. We extended all food straps with 10cm extra Velcro and also bought 100 pairs of... More

As a 60 year old looking to learn kite-surfing this could not have been a better experience. The staff and facilities were excellent, languages skill of the staff was first class. If you require an instructor with patience and an excellent teaching ability then Vanni is the instructor of choice. The complex was relaxing a easily accessed from the Fanadir... More

We have been coming to KBC for the past 5 years and will keep coming back. It's one of the best places to kite, no matter what your level is. As for KBC, I think guys have done an incredible job with the level of service and making the place feel cosy. Everyone at the station is very helpful in... More

I recently spent 8 days at KBC, El Gouna. A good spot for improving your kitesurfing, with pretty reliable wind during my stay and excellent service from the staff. A key factor behind this review was my booking of the diamond service at KBC. This meant that my kite was set up and deflated, etc... for me with nothing other... More
