In Egypt’s first World Cup debut, the Red Sea Kitesurf World Cup 2014 is scheduled to take place at Soma Bay, Egypt from May 28 – June 1 of this year, welcoming some of the best freestylers in the world to compete.
Blue skies, beautiful beaches, and crystal clear water characterize Soma Bay, where the Hotel Palm Royale will present the first-ever PKRA World Tour stop in Egypt. Roughly 60 athletes from 20 nations will be present to compete with breathtaking maneuvers and tricks. It’s not just about important world ranking points, but also a cash prize of 57,000 U.S. dollars, the most ever distributed on the World Series for one discipline.
Conditions at Soma Bay are perfect for an event of this type. The flat water areas are known for their high and constant wind speeds, almost guaranteeing spectacular competition. Visitors will have excellent access to viewing, as the event will be held in the bay divided by a sandbar, in front of the Hotel Palm Royale. Event radio will keep audiences up to date with information on results and entertains.
On the beach between competition, there’ll be volleyball, slacklines, access to stand up paddling, and skimboards, with plenty of room for recreational kitesurfers. Evening activities will include dancing, beach parties, and DJ’s into the early hours of morning.
