El Gouna Kiteboarding Grand Slam - Day Four

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

dolphins 1Day four was to be another lay day with calm conditions prevailing throughout the Red Sea zone. Many riders once again utilised the Sliders cable park whilst others took the opportunity to go on a once in a lifetime trip to the reef to meet with the Dolphins! If you're in El Gouna this is definitely something you must experience, upwards of 50 dolphins often swimming so close around you that you can touch them isn't an uncommon sight. This is a trip that most will remember for years to come!

The forecast for tomorrow still isn't looking particularly good with very light winds prevailing once again. The forecast for the weekend shows especially windy conditions for Sunday, lets hope some of that wind moves forward a bit into Saturday for the Big Air competition!
