    Windsurfing in Sharm El-Sheikh


    Windsurfing is a well established surface water sport in Egypt and combines aspects of both sailing and surfing, along with certain athletic aspects shared with other board sports like skateboarding, snowboarding or waterskiing. The Red Sea offers plenty of fantastic places for both beginners who wish to learn the basic skills of windsurfing with easy surface conditions as well as for experienced windsurfers, aiming to perfect their jumps and spinning manoeuvres. Learning to use the board and the wind is not as difficult as you might think, but it is best to take lessons with one of the professional schools. With coaching and favorable conditions, the basic skills of sailing, steering, and turning can be learned within a few hours. Beginners usually start with the two most common windsailing manoeuvres: turns and jibes, this means basic man oeuvres to change direction and they consist of quickly moving the sail towards the bow or stern of the board. Beginners also learn the different ‘take offs’ like the beach start or the water start; the surfer first steps on the board and pulls the sail towards the body. Alternatively, you use the wind to keep the rig in the direction of navigation and then step onto the board in shallow water “beach start” or in the sea “water start”. Advanced windsurfers might look for some waves outside sheltered lagoons and bays to perform jumps, inverted loops, spinning manoeuvres, and other “freestyle” moves and will find plenty of opportunities along the beautiful coasts of the Red Sea. Keep in mind, however, that competence in the sport and mastery of more advanced manoeuvres such as planning, carve gibing “turning downwind at speed)”, jumping, and more advanced moves can require lengthy practice.
