EGYPT TRAVEL MICRO GUIDE | DAHAB WITH HARRY NASS

EGYPT TRAVEL MICRO GUIDE | DAHAB WITH HARRY NASS

AFRICA | DAHAB, EGYPT WITH HARRY NASS

Dahab is well established as a World Class windsurfing area. The number of windsurfers that have learnt, improved or just had a great time blasting in the warm, turquoise waters is huge. It is the only location in the world with such a diversity of conditions in one spot. The safe lagoon, enclosed by a sand bar, on the other side of which is a speed strip (A.K.A ‘the speedie’) with amazingly flat water. It all sits in a large bay protected in the North by Napoleon Reef. There are the waves outside of this and, to cap it all, 300 windy days a year.

But what else makes Dahab so special?
The first Harry Nass Dahab centre was established in 1999 and since then Nass centres have have stood for quality and stability. The Egyptian revolution caused some of the other centres in the bay to fail, but Harry Nass kept going. Two years ago Egypt’s Ministry of Tourism declared the Harry Nass Centres as the best windsurf and kitesurf centres in the country.

Twice a year the boards and rigs at all four centres are replaced by the latest from JPAustralia/NeilPryde  and in fact the four Harry Nass Centres are the biggest concentration of JP/Pryde boards and rigs in the world.

LOCATIONS:
Harry Nass Dahab offers the best launching locations in the bay.

Harry Nass Centre 1 at the Ibis Style (was the Coralia)

200 JPAustralia boards and Neil Pryde sails
Here the wind comes cleanly from the North and East – it’s the only centre where it is possible to get a true measurement of wind-strength. Located directly in front of  the centre is a sheltered lagoon, protected from the main bay by a long sandy spit. With its large, shallow, standing area it is a ideal location for all levels, especially beginners and intermediates.

For the more advanced, area 2 (speedie)  and 3 (the waves) are easily accessible from here.

Shallow water ensures you can walk back to the centre if required. This is an ideal location for large groups of windsurfers of different levels. There is a bar right next to the centre and the view as the sun sets behind the mountains makes it a great place for Sundowners

Harry Nass Centre 2 at the Iberotel Dahabeya

150 JP boards and Pryde sails
The only centre in the bay where you can windsurf directly to speedie and the wave area on a beam reach. Area 2 has amazing flat water conditions, perfect for freestyle, speed sailing and improving your skills.

Beyond the reef in Area 3 you enter the open sea where you will find swell up to 3 metres high, providing a great introduction to wave sailing and a good place for advanced windsurfers to have some real fun. The unique Harry Nass walkie talkie system ensures you are in constant contact with their rescue boats which are always on stand-by.

Harry Nass Centre 3 at the Swiss Inn

80 JP boards and 100 Pryde sails
This centre is located in the middle of the bay. The free boat shuttle service between all Harry Nass centres can ferry beginners and Intermediates to Centre 1 into the safe lagoon if required.

Harry Nass Centre 4 at the Mercure Kitecentre Harry Nass Centre 4 is the only deep water kitesurfing location in Dahab. It’s useable at any state of the tide and the prevailing wind is cross shore. There is a safe sandy downwind landing beach.

Other Infos:
With Harry Nass Dahab you will find everything you need for your perfect windsurf holiday with 4 centres, the latest equipment, professional courses and helpful staff for unlimited action on the water. For no wind days free SUP boards are available.
