Anybody knows DAKHLA - MOROCCO ???

Postby mikylut » Mon Sep 26, 2005 7:40 pm

Hello everybody!
Have you ever heard about DAKHLA in Morocco?

I'm looking for wind conditions there above all since December, till March.

I know about an Italian "school" there but I DON'T CARE, I'm looking for something GOOD but International.

Is there any kite center?
A kite beach?

Anything?

Thank you all!

Mike

Kitesurfing Dahkla in November

Postby chris_wenger » Wed Sep 28, 2005 12:53 pm

Will be there with my wife from the 13. - 25th of november. As far as I know, it will be good wind. As long as it is hot enough, the wind will warm up over land and bring a nice steady wind in the bay.....hmmmm....that's what I was promised, but maybe it is just marketing ;)

We will see, only 4 weeks until the trip :)

Cheapest way to get to Dahkla

Postby chris_wenger » Fri Sep 30, 2005 8:25 am

Hi E_S

Cheapest way is by car and ferry => to Tanger. I heard that there is a one leaving from Sete (France). Takes some time, but if you do have time, you will be able to bring your own surfmobile ;)

I have only 2 weeks, so there is no choice. There is no flights from Finland, so I first fly in to Frankfurt (around 200 Euro) and then over Casablanca to Dahkla (around 450 Euro) => so from Helsinki 650 Euro.

We are staying at the camp of Rachid => 40 Euros per day (all inclusive). Not really fancy but confortable => big tents with small tents inside for more privacy...hmmmm....a bit more at least. Shower, very good food and electricity in the evenings => you can load your cameras :)

PS: I ordered at a German travel agency => around 1000 Euros for 10 days incl. flights from Frankfurt. I heard that Air Marokko has no weight limit, so you can take all your gear without any worries of having to pay extra. From Helsinki to Frankfurt I will have hope for a checkin lady in good mood ;)

Maybe see you there in November

Cheers

Chris

YOU're wrong, RAM will make you pay your extra baggage( over 23 kg) trough your nose, at 20 Euros per kilo. once when you go and once when you'll come back.
So be carefull when you prepare your gear.
They are really Bastards!!!
