500KM KITE SURFING IN THE DESERT

Tom Court shreds it in Dakhla…


In this episode of #courtintheact I am in Morocco’s Deep South, in Dakhla and we are shredding the Dakhla down wind challenge, a 500km down wind kitesurfing challenge that spans from the Dakhla lagoon down to the boarder of Mauritania. As far south in the Sahara desert as you can go.

It is a once in a lifetime trip, that holds a special place for any adventurer to be able to achieve this, is something special. Unfortunately we didn’t get that much wind in the later days of the trip so we had to make do with some good vibes and fireside banter.

A good kiteboarding trip is always made by the people that you are with and this down winder was no different… good times had by all and some great moments on the water!!
