The nearby Red Sea Mountains add to the winds but even in the strongest of winds, the water always stays calm, thereby creating nature’s ideal training and practice conditions.

The bay offers enormous space for all and has classified areas for both training and advanced surfers; pros can free their energy and practice their jumps and tricks, while beginners are able to do their first or second steps safely and in undisturbed waters. If the wind (rarely) becomes too unsupportive, Soma Bay offers a variety of activities that will distract you from a few hours away from kitesurfing! Kitesurfing courses and daily free intro offered to all Soma Bay guests.
