Dakhla Water Sports Center is open all year long offering Kitesurfing Lessons for beginners, intermediate riders looking to progress and advanced riders looking for some specific training. We also offer Kitesurf lessons for kids and people with special needs.

All our instructors are IKO or VDWS certified instructors and Dakhla Waters Sports Center is the only IKO affiliated Kitesurfing Center in Dakhla.

Our Kitesurf lessons are mainly taught in English and French. Our instructors can also teach lessons in German, Spanish, Polish and Arabic.


With our experience and specific teaching plans, we make the kitesurfing learning process very easy, providing an intensive teaching that always leads to success. It does not matter if customers just want to discover the sport, are complete beginners, in need to refresh their knowledge or wish to get to the next level with their kiting. We are here to give you the best advice and help!


All our kitesurf lessons are scheduled depending on the wind and weather forecast and we try to get everyone in the water for as long as possible. Kitesurf Lessons are taught in front of the sports center on the so-called Dragon Beach.

DAKHLA Water Sports Center works with the latest CABRINHA kiteboarding equipment. All of our accessories (wetsuits, helmets, life vests, harnesses) are from the NP catalogue and all the items are checked and registered on a daily basis.

We use the latest technology available to provide the best possible experience.


Kids (under 15) and people with specific needs must book private lessons. For kids, parents must sign a responsibility statement allowing us to teach them and they have to find themselves inside the Dakhla Attitude premises and be available whilst their kids are training. If you have specific needs or questions, please contact Rihfly from Dakhla Sport Center.
