KITECAMP DEAF KITESURFING

Kitecamp for the deaf in Egypt

The deaf kite community migrates to Egypt in autumn. The perfect opportunity to escape the beginning of winter and soak up a little sun.

For one week, our kitecamp in Egypt is all about learning to kitesurf, improving skills and spending as much time as possible on the water.

Hamata is located relatively far south in Egypt. Especially in November the temperatures there are pleasant and provide the basis for extensive kite sessions. The lagoon right in front of the kite beach offers the finest sandy bottom with a huge standing area. Constant sideshore winds in connection with reliable thermals make Hamata an exceptionally windproof spot. 

During this week, both deaf and hearing kite instructors will accompany you so that you can make as much progress as possible. In general, we do not count strictly in training hours at our kite camps, but pay special attention to your individual progress.

A huge standing area, turquoise water and a very high wind yield await you. Hamata offers the perfect conditions - regardless of whether you are kiting for the first time or working on your jumps.

Powder and constant wind

Spot & Wind in Hamata

Laboratory conditions in the KiteVillage - Hamata. It's almost too easy. There is nothing like it. This huge lagoon with a sandy bottom is ideal for our camps. You won't find any places where you can't stand in the water. We'd be lying if we said, "It's hard to teach there."

The huge standing area and a constant sideshore wind make the job almost too easy for us. We can concentrate entirely on you and your goals and then celebrate your success together.

Even when the weather forecast was not the best, Hamata surprised us again and again - the thermal, especially in Egypt, is just something nice.

From bed to board

Accomodation in the KiteVillage

The KiteVillage Bungalows are spacious rooms with a large bathroom and a nice terrace, which are inviting for debriefings of the day. You will find everything you need. Except for a hair dryer, there is none. According to the meaning: “There is everything you need here. You don't need what doesn't exist! ”

Our offer includes half board and we all eat together, not just with our group. The kitesurfers from Hamata meet at a table and enjoy breakfast and dinner together. We love that, it's just part of it.

fun even for non-kiters

Activities in Hamata

We offer plenty of additional activities for non-kiters and kite-lazy people. Or simply as an alternative if the sore muscles are too intense or if there is a lull after all. However, we are pretty good with the Egyptian wind godess. 

Kitecamp for the deaf in Hamata - Detailed information

We have been traveling to Hamata ourselves and with groups for years and are very familiar with both traveling to and in the country and kiting at the spot.

We have briefly summarized all the useful information for you.

In the lagoon with sandy bottom, standing area and constant sideshore wind you can take your first steps or your first experiences on the kite or improve your level.

As soon as the air starts to move, we start towards the water, because practice is a very important factor to us. As long as you have energy and are not afraid of a sunstroke, you can stay on the water and work on your kite skills.

Of course, there are also various workshops with LakeUnited within a week that give you a comprehensive insight into the world of kitesurfing.

We cannot list the number of hours here, because you get full support from us this week. We design our program according to the circumstances. Since our goal is your maximum progress, you can look forward to a brilliant time with many successes.

LakeUnited's events are always educational. Because our goal is that you can take as much as possible with you.

We place great value on practice and can now look back on more than 15 years of training experience in kitesurfing. Nevertheless, we are constantly evolving by continuously revising our concepts.

After all, there is not just one way, because everyone learns differently and needs different inputs. In addition, one or the other may already have made mistakes that need to be specifically corrected 

We use different approaches to improve your skills on the water and on the kite. We will hold several workshops and also offer video analyzes - if everything goes well, even with a projector in the evening. This has already proven itself many times! Because we love detailed work, we can draw your attention to little things that others don't even see. Often, just a few small changes lead to the desired success and you enjoy more fun and safety on the water. 

In our high-quality kite lessons, we clearly see our strength in empathy and in working on a personal level. With empathy and a lot of fun, we will pick you up right where you are. This applies to beginners as well as professionals, after all, we have already trained some kite instructors in our academy.

Yes, kitesurfing is strength training! So that you don't just build up your muscles while towing your kite and otherwise sit around waiting for better wind, we offer you our equipment for rent. 

Whether land or water kite, a lot or little wind - we always have the right equipment for you! So you travel much more carefree, use new kites from top brands such as Flysurfer and Duotone and have more time on the water overall.

The KiteVillage bungalows are located directly opposite the kite school. You have a spacious room and a large bathroom. In the room you will find everything except coat hooks, at least they weren't there the last time we stayed. And we haven't discovered the hair dryer either. Everything else needed, including a television set is available.

Around these bungalows, you may have to be patient with the green areas, the pool and the grounds - all of this is not yet complete. But it doesn't have to, because we spend most of our time on the beach or on the water.

The rooms are comfortable and very spacious. Especially in the bathroom you have lots of space - just no hair dryer. In front of the room there is a nice terrace, inviting for one or the other debriefing.

Rooms can be booked as double rooms (DBL) or single rooms (SGL). We are also happy to connect single travelers within the group, so that as a single person you are not forced to book a single room. Double rooms are offered with separate beds. 

We eat breakfast and dinner together in the KiteVillage Camp. The chef 'George' cooks, who definitely knows his craft.

After an extensive kite session you need enough energy in the evening for the next day, this will get you a delicious buffet without any problems.

There are also plenty of vegan or vegetarian dishes. You can always find something - even the salad is excellent and the soups are a dream. 

The nice thing about eating at the Kitevillage Camp - there are two large tables where all kiters come together, eat together and then relax and have a beer or two.

The mood is extremely pleasant. And if you can play chess, the head chef will be happy if you challenge him.

The plane takes you to Marsa Alam / Egypt with a flight time of around 4 ½ hours from Germany, Austria or Switzerland. After you have bought the visa in the arrival hall on the left and maybe make a detour in the DutyFree, we organize the transfer from the airport to Hamata to the KiteVillage. This is the destination of our joint kite trip. This trip takes about 2½ hours, but it is definitely worth the journey. The lagoon - a dream. Your progress in kitesurfing - assured. 

Flight cost: app. 300 – 400 Euro

Visa: 25.- Das Visum erhält man in der Geldwechselstube auf der linken Seite der Ankunftshalle.

Catering while getting there: You should pack some food. Food is now rare on the planes and mostly not sufficient.

Money exchange: You don't need to change money into Egyption Pounds. In the KiteVillage you can pay everything in Euro. If you pay with credit card in the KiteVillage, e.g. at the beach bar or the kite station, an additional 3% will be added.

Passport: Of course you need a valid passport. It must be valid for at least 6 months upon departure.

Internet: You can pick it up at the airport (Vodafon), but be careful, the sellers are slit ears who know how to come to a conclusion with “lure offers”. We have already bought 12 GB and received 4 - now we know better.

There is also a shop at the kite station. A little more expensive, but there you get what you ordered.

Travel insurance: We are no insurance agents, but we are obliged to offer you comprehensive travel insurance. And in truth, cancellation and travel insurance somehow makes sense. Just let us know and we will send you an offer from 'Europäische Reiseversicherung'. 

Information about CoVid-19

Since we always strive for your complete satisfaction, CoVid-19 is not a problem for us. If we are not able to carry out a camp or a trip or should not be allowed to travel to or enter a country due to restrictions, we will notify you in good time and you will get your money back.
