UK Instructors offering Professional Kiteboarding Lessons in Hurghada, Egypt.
Come and learn with us.
Originally from the UK, we moved to our favourite location to Kite and teach in the world (Hurghada). Our aim is to offer a personalised service to our students, so after collecting you from the airport on arrival and taking you to your hotel, we'll arrange to pick you up every morning and bring you to our Kitesurfing spot and at the end of each day, return you to your hotel . If you'd prefer to stay in more cost-effective accommodation though, we can put you in touch with a UK based company called Rivermead Global who offer great self-catering apartments at fantastic rates.
Hurghada offers so many options when you aren't Kiteboarding from dessert quad safari, to scuba diving, a word-class Wakeboarding park, stand up paddle boarding, go-carting and motocross track to name a few. If you'd like, we can arrange any of these activities for you, usually at discounted rates too.
FlyHigh Kiteboarding only works with companies that have the same passion for quality and customer experience as we do, which is why we have discount agreements with some companies and not others.
We're on-hand 24/7 to assist with anything on or off the water!
Leon has 9 years Kiting experience and is a certified IKO instructor.
Max has 4 years of Kiting experience (will be IKO certified soon!)
Our teaching lagoon is simply massive at 150m wide by 300m long which provides the ideal conditions to learn, with shallow warm water and consistent wind. Our lessons are run in groups of two students to one instructor as this offers maximum time on the water and provides an excellent environment so you can get the most out of your lessons and learn quickly.
The Kite Beach
We have a large beach area where there's a restaurant, free WiFi, showers, toilets, chill-out area, shop, repair service, Kite storage, equipment rental, air compressor & Kite cleaning area.
Free Riding Area
For independent riders this area is perfect for you. Just outside the teaching lagoon is the free ride playground - a simply massive area made up of deep channels and shallow lagoons, which is a brilliant place to land those new tricks and foil any tide conditions.
