@ Nacho Granada!
Welcome to EB & KSA!
Unfortunately I also have no idea about your question. I am sure someone else will help you out..

welcome to the blog and surfing wow i haven't try to have one of these kind in years , I miss Gold cost T,T
look you can have this kind of equipment im sure in ABHUR in Jiddah , but im not sure if our weather have that kind of waves ?
any ways best of luck bro . . .

you can. I saw many people doing it when we go out for scuba charters in the waterway that opens to the red sea. Where to get the equipment i am not sure.  But they were using jetski and boat wakes as waves.

the guy in jeddah that posted is a rip off.

to get equipment talk to this place
they ship to saudi for SOOOOO cheap (relatively compared to everyone else) and its 3-4 days to get here

they have everything you need, and they have a skype username as well so you dont have to pay to contact.

Tom is who i dealt with to get my kite and landboard.  just take it slow, do your research and have fun

welcome Nacho Granada, before you do those surfing are you ready to face the type of weather here in ksa i mean the heat temperature? Mostly i see people doing that near beaches or side sea cause the wind is stronger on that area.


Hello kitesurfing community in Jeddah! I have plans to move there  in aprox one month, I have inquire about kitesurfing over there, but all the feedback would be appreciated, two specific questions to the community:
What is THE size kite mostly use over there according to the predominant winds? , I am planning to bring my equip, (almost sold all of it except one kite 10 m ) so the question is, how easy is to get new equip over there? Any stores, dealership or so? Or buying on internet, the stuff arrives without any problem thru customs? This would help me a lot since I could leave my ok equip over here and get new over there.

Offshore winds at the beach?
Any dangers I should be aware? Stingrays, medusas, sharks ? Or PIRATES!
Any restrictions ( no kite n beach, reef limits etc? )

Well thank you guys if anyone answer and hope To meet you soon
