Kiteboarding in Tunisia

Kiteboarding is said to be one of the fastest growing water sports in the world.  If you want to experience what all the hype is about, check out Kiteboarding in Tunisia especially on Djerba Island!!!

Djerba Island is a great place to experience this water sport in a safe way, with excellent instruction.  There are a few places that offer English instruction.  There is one school on the South East side of the Island, and one on the North shore beside the capital, Houmt Souk.  After taking lessons at both places, I would definitely recommend Global Kite on the North shore.  It offers great English instruction.  They have excellent kites and other gear rentals, as well as one-on-one training for every level. It is an easy location to get to with restaurants close by and the atmosphere is relaxed.   What makes Global Kite a great place to learn kiting is the 20 square mile lagoon.  The water in the lagoon does not get deeper than about 5 feet and is separated from the open Mediterranean by a peninsula where tourists come to explore the beautiful beach.  You can go kiting here all year-round, however, winters can be a little cold.  Spring, summer, and fall are excellent times to come as well.

So, as you are planning to go kiteboarding in Tunisia, you can consider Djerba Island as your destination to take introductory lessons, or to learn new kite-boarding tricks.  Stay a week and watch yourself progress in your kiteboarding skills.  Mosaic North Africa can help make this kiteboarding trip a success.
