This is the first time that KPWT will surf the free-riders paradise in Dakhla and will be the 8th stage of the KPWT year 2009. Prize money for this 6 star event is set at 35 000 euros.
The riders are excited to make an impact and to take the opportunity to show off their skills and freedom at this spectacular kitesurfing paradise!
The four disciplines being held will be Freestyle, Wave Masters, Course racing, and the new and exciting Kiteloop!
Dakhla is situated on the Western Sahara coast of Morocco, boasting consistently strong winds and a vast range of kitesurfing conditions.
It is a huge sandy basin with a lagoon stretching over 50kms and a North Westerly wind, which is prevalent all year round.
There are natural thermals that accelerate down the peninsular that meet the cold Atlantic, offering a strong constant wind for the riders.
It offers a unique kitesurfing adventure for riders and travelers alike, with your accommodation under canvas and your travels off the beaten track, what better way to experience the KPWT with Dakhla attitude!!
Keep in the loop for more updates and press releases to come on this exciting adventure!
