El Gouna Water Sports Festival: Your Summertime Adrenaline Rush and the Highlight of the Season
As soon as summer starts in Egypt, we begin to remember our love and enthusiasm about the beach and its fun activities. Almost all of us wait for summer all year long, to enjoy the water activities by the beach that we can only do during summer. And, one of our favorite places to enjoy summer is definitely El Gouna! This year, El Gouna Water Sports Festival is combining Kitesurfing, Cable Wakeboarding, Windsurfing, and Sailing, over the course of four days. The four-day event will witness intense action between the riders battling out in three separate water sports.
From the 17th to 20th of June, prepare yourself for an event that is guaranteed to be the highlight of your summer. With the support of the Egyptian Sailing and Waterski Federation (ESWF), international riders from different sports will be attending the event to participate and join the judging panels. However, on the 18th of June, a special sunset party will be taking place at Makani Beach Club El Gouna, featuring the exquisite sounds of CLIAO, DOU and A-SQUARED, blessing us with exciting dancing vibes.
The program includes Kitemania, Wakemania, and Windmania, each with its own competition and accordingly, its prize. Kitemania is a big air and racing kitesurfing event at Makani Beach Club El Gouna, where the riders will push their limits and boost Big Air tricks in a 7-min heat format, and the winners will receive a 120K EGP cash prize. This tournament will be for the following levels: Advanced Men-Expert, Men-Women-Racing-Youth Under 16.
As for Wakemania, a Cable Wakeboarding event will be held at Sliders Cable Park El Gouna. During this, riders will shred the park east and west, throwing their best moves off the kickers, obstacles, and flats, for an unmatched 5000 € cash prize. Lastly, Windmania! As the name suggests, this will be a windsurfing and sailing racing event at Makani Beach Club El Gouna. Windsurfers, and Laser and Optimist sailors will race neck to neck in multiple racing courses that will pump everyone’s adrenaline up for a 58K EGP cash prize.
Depending on the weather, especially the status of the wind, the dates for each competition will be decided and announced. To book your accommodation, visit http://flyeventseg.com/accomodation/. This is an event you wouldn’t want to miss!
