Description of Dakhla (Morocco)

Dakhla after a few visiting pioneers in the early years of the sport has become one of the most iconic travel destinations in the kitesurfing landscape. The spot consists of a large lagoon kissing the amazing Sahara dunes, offering visually flat water all over it or a very small chop. It is a great place to start learning to kitesurf and it can be fun for all rider levels. Outside the lagoon, on the ocean side of the peninsula, can be found great conditions for wave riding, making this spot one of the most complete and diversified spots in the world.
