My Salty Sisters are finally going to Egypt! Our first Empowerment & Kite Retreat in Africa and we are taking you to one of the best kite spots at the Red Sea: Flat water, constant wind and great vibes are waiting for you.
El Gouna is the perfect place for an amazing kitesurfing holiday. It provides warm temperatures, constant side-on shore wind and a wonderful flat water playground for kitesurfers of all levels. The lagoon in front of our partner station Makani Beach Club offers a wide, sandy beach for safe launching and landing, beautiful crystal blue water as well as all the facilities and services you need to have a great time on and off the water.
It doesn't matter if you are into freestyle, learning your first tricks or you want just to start kiteboarding - El Gouna is definitely the right spot for you!
El Gouna is just a 30-minute drive away from the airport in Hurghada. We will organize your pickup and the transfer to our accommodation, the relaxing Three Corners Rihana Resort, built along the banks of a breathtaking lagoon.
Beside tasty breakfast choices, the hotel offers several pool areas and super cozy and modern rooms.
Daily shuttles are running between the hotel and the kite station - and within a 10-minute ride you and your Salty Sisters are on the beach, ready for a kite session!
Kite, kite, kite - of course this is the main focus of our trip. Depending on the conditions we have one to two daily kitesurfing sessions during which we will support you to gain more confidence on the water, learn new tricks and boost your kitesurfing skills to the next level. We provide coaching, support and fun - on and off the water - for our group of salty sisters.
Besides kitesurfing our retreats offer daily body & mind workouts (yoga, fascial muscle relaxation, breathing exercises, etc.), a simple guide to an active and healthy way of living as well as empowerment activities and personal development workshops.
More than a kite camp: Our retreats focus on empowering women on and off the water. Together we celebrate every day, session and progression, share thoughts and experiences to be able to grow. During the past years we found a very special energy unlocked in a group of like-minded women with the same passion – an energy that is supportive and just unstoppable. Our mission is to build a strong sisterhood of kite girls (and those, who want to become one) and to show the world how much women rock on the water!
As always, we offer limited spots for the most personal experience. Feel free to send us a message regarding information about the spot, transfer, kite lessons, rental – or anything else, that’s on your mind.
What kite level do I need?
At our retreats, all kitesurfing levels are welcome! Please note that due to safety reasons you have to take kiteboarding lessons or assistance until you are able to go upwind in any kind of condition (light wind, strong wind, gusts, wavy spots, etc.) and be completely confident with the self-rescue maneuver. We are happy to help you arrange everything with our partner school Makani Beach Club prior the trip. Even if you are a beginner or need some refreshment lessons, we will still make sure to ride together and share amazing experiences on the water. Of course, our team will provide coaching and share tipps with all the participants - no matter the level.
What is the difference between a My Salty Sisters Empowerment & Kite Retreat and a kite camp?
We want to shift the focus to the one thing that matters most: Having fun on the water. We truly believe that progression comes with the feeling of safety, support and pure joy – and that’s what we want to provide to our Salty Sisters. Empowering each other is a big part of this process, which means we will be there for every little step you do towards reaching your personal (kitesurfing) goal.
Are you ready for a kitesurfing trip you will never forget?
