Nice to hear that somebody is kitesurfing in Jeddah. I had been in Jeddah at 2008 and at jully 2009 i will come back to Jeddah again. I was seaeching this sport in Jeddah, and nothing i found till this topic.
I had been addicted to do this sport. I am even not a beginner, but by the way i will do this with the correct way of education.
It will be perfect for me to learn if there is someone teaches kitesurfing in Jeddah or if there is some kind of school or something.

(I am a PADI divemaster and UW Photographer as a hobby and as my profisiency i am civil engineer.)

omg finally i find ppl who kiteboard in jeddah...

i have been looking for ppl in jeddah for like 6 months and i was losing hope.

i have tried to kite over at the open sea area's after the north private beaches otherwise known as "kabayen" but it was very bad ... the beach was dirty with glass and junk and tonz of rocks which are totally kite unfriendly... the winds were weak in the morining but pick up at around 3pm.

im still looking for better spots and it seems this post is perfect .. i will try the locations u guys posted after my exams.

im using a nemsis HP 14m with a noble T5 board... still a beginner though seeing how there are no schools or trainers here.. all i know i had to learn myself.

if anyone would like to kiteboard with me sometimes let me know !!

I will be in Jeddah from July 23 to 27 for business (I'm also a civil engineer). I won't be bringing my gear because I will not likely have a chance to ride. However if I get a break I would love to go kiteboarding near Jeddah. I'm happy to pay to rent or borrow gear. I am solid intermediate, ride non-directionals and prefer bow kites. I weigh 180 pounds. If anyone is around to help me, that would be great.

hallo thomas,

habe eben gerade deine mail in meinem spam ordner gefunden....und auch dort geantwortet.

kiten kann man in jeddah. wind gibt es nicht so viel wie in aegypten aber als einheimischer kannst sicherlich 40% des Jahres kiten oder surfen!
auf dem offenem meer nur mit stress mit der kuestenwache also lieber vermeiden. ca 130km noerdlich von jeddah liegt rabigh mit einer sehr gut kitebaren lagune udn landschafftlich angenehm da etwas gruen. 120km suedlich von jeddah liegt shwaibe. oberhalb der power plant station gibt es eine ca 2mal 5 km grosse lagune. diese wird nie tiefer als huefttief und bei flachwasser oft nur 30-40cm flach.
zusaetzlich gibt es noch im sueden di ebeiden so genannten beaches kilo 70 und kilo 90. oft stress mit der kuestenwache udn bei 90 formt sich eine riesige tiefwasser lagune aber im noerdlichen teil ist es dort "am besten" aber "ablandige" winde da fast immer von nord nord west.
beid lagunen (auch kilo 70 und 90)sind mit etwas vorsichtiger fahrweise sogar mit einem nicht 4x4 fahrzeug erreichbar! selber wohne ich in jeddah nahe der british int. school jeddah. melde dich einfach wieder. es gibt hier nicht viele kiter und ich bin eigentlich auch mehr windsurfer.....kann aber mittlerweile gerade aus fahren und wenden.

im gesamten arabischen raum gibt es keinen einzigen windsurf oder kitehandel! also mitbringen! alles! wir sind dabei eine kleine selbsthilfe gruppe mit Materialvermietung nebst surf schule und event kite schule (vorerst nichts allzu offizielles da dies mit der regierung hier immer schwierig ist als nicht saudi) zu gruenden und haben die firma gaastra fuer uns gewinnen koennen!!
wir werden einig etabou boards bestellen und etliche gaastra riggs. da gaastra auch kiten abdeckt ist die Fa idealer partner fuer uns! wenn es denn klappt!
der jeckyl II ist vielleicht nicht mehr dauerbrenner unter den kite test mannschaften der welt aber er wird schon gut fliegen und was das windsurfen angeht sind die produkte spitze.

lg christian
