RIHFLY DAKHLA WATERSPORTS CENTERKitesurf lessons, material rental, surf shop, repair workshop, wake boarding, excursions and much more.
RIHFLY DAKHLA Water Sports Center is placed at the Dragon Beach at what is called the Point of the Dragon in Dakhla’s lagoon. Our main spot is a small lagoon inside of Dakhla’s bay that ends at the Dragon Island, big enough for everybody to have fun, learn, try some new tricks and in case something goes wrong, there is always going to be a safe way out of the water. The spot has no specific danger zones to be aware of and offers all kinds of conditions for various activities.
Dakhla is known as the wind paradise with over 330 days of wind per year. Wind normally blows from the north, this means side shore on the Dragon Beach. Sometimes the wind blows from the northeast and ends up being onshore to the Dragon Beach. This wind gives the spot a completely new perspective offering long rides from the Dragon Island till the end of the lagoon. For those few no wind days there will always be an alternative activity!
Every 2 days the wind, tide & wave forecast is posted on all info-boxes around the hotel.

YELLOW FLAGUp means the conditions are not recommended to kite of windsurf. Weather conditions might be changing or not enough / to strong wind. Security boat is available but going into the water is under each riders responsbility.
BLUE FLAGUp means the conditions that conditions are perfect for practicing the sport and that security service is available.
