Organized by the Association “Mer et Désert du ”, this transcultural event will present various artists on stage to more than 30,000 people in exotic Morocco. The 2008 festival will also feature Kitesurfing, Windsurfing and Surfing events, including a 40 km downwind race organized by Philippe Bru of Defi Wind fame.
Team Naish will be well represented by Sjoukje Bredenkamp and Manu Taub for Kitesurfing and Gerald Pelleau, Pascal Tosseli and Marion Raisi for Windsurfing. They will be taking on the challenging conditions with ‘08 production gear.
Naish France is playing a major role, serving as partner for the event and working to introduce Windsurfing and Stand Up Paddling to the local Morrocan population. There is no question that the Dakhla Festival is fast becoming a “must go” event for international water players.
