El Gouna Kiteboarding Grand Slam - Day 6

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

16-03-26-RAW-EGY-FS-CHRISTIANBLACK-0208Day six saw a continuation of the previous placid wind conditions, and with little chance for competition most took the time to relax and pack their gear in preparation for the prize giving ceremony.

The ceremony was a great show with Lewis Crathern announcing the results to a crowd of riders, fans and Egyptian delegates. The top three riders for both Men and Women had a chance to speak on the microphone, with all giving unanimous praise to the organisers and the Egyptian government for supporting Kiteboarding and running a world class event.

The Egyptian government was no doubt impressed, with news announced at the ceremony of a Junior World Championship event now scheduled to take place in Egypt in July this year.

We would like to thank all riders, sponsors and fans for supporting this first event of the year and no doubt helping make it a great success! Thank you all!

El Gouna Kiteboarding Grand Slam – Day Five

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

Day Five – Groundhog day! With almost no chance for wind today riders once again took the opportunity to explore Elgouna and it’s surroundings. For most that meant another leisurely day at the cable park or snorkeling on the reefs.

The forecast for tomorrow isn’t looking amazing, but we will stay optimistic in the hope that some late wind may materialize! If you know a good wind dance now’s the time!

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!
