Here we will report whatthey experience during their trip and what their impressions are.

Day 4

Miriam and her brother Manuel enjoyed watching the Prince Moulay El Hassan GKA Kite-Surf World
Tour Dakhla 2017. It`s fascinating to watch the Pro`s during their rides. Afterwards of course they
were also part of the medal ceremony….

Day 3

Day 3 started for Miriam and Manuel with a nice breakfast in front of the pool of Hotel Westpoint. Really relaxing to enjoy the nice breeze of the ocean only some meters far away from you….

Of course afterwards the pool also had to be tested by Miriam and Manuel themselves. Surrounded by very cosy sunloungers you can chill there the whole day long if you want….

Next stop Dakhla Attitude fort he next kitesurfing session!

The Dragon Camp is directly build into a dune which looks very impressive!

Miriam and Manuel always found their way because many signs will helped them to find everything…

And again, super nice conditions for enjoing a great kitesurfing day! No wonder that Miriam and Manuel first returned after some hours on the water…..

After watching some of the competitions of the GKA, it was time to go kiting for Miriam and Manuel themselves. They took the shuttle service that is offered from Hotel Westpoint to the sister hotel Dakhla Attitude which is directly situated at the lagoon.

In between they had time to meet Heather which gives yoga classes at both resorts. Of course Miriam and Manuel also tried a unity afterwards.

At the watersports center of Dakhla Attitude both prepared themselves to enjoy a good kitesurfing session. Manuel and Miriam brought their own equipment, so it`s no probelm to store it at the watersports center and for guests who don`t have their own equipment it`s possible to rent the newest equipment that is on the market.

No words needed…

Next to the watersportscenter there is the super nice and cosy beach bar where Miriam and  Manuel enjoyed very nice refreshments after their kitesurfing session. Here are offered smoothis, softdrinks, alcoholic drinks, little snacks… everything to get fit again for a second 2. kitesurfing session 😊

In the evening it was time to drive home to Hotel Westpoint which is ca. 20 minutes far away from Dakhla Attitude. Time for a nice moroccan dinner….

The beauty of the nature and the whole experience makes tired…so let`s go to bed to see what day 3 will offer us 😉

Arrival:

The dream trip started in Frankfurt (Germany). After a ca. 7 hours trip via Casablanca both arrived happy and of course also tired at Dakhla.

With the plane of Royal Air Maroc Miriam and Manuel flew via Casablanca to Dakhla

Day 1:

At the next day Miriam and Manuel woke up in their eco-friendly bungalow on cause of the swoosh of the sea. Afterwards they enjoyed a delicious moroccan breakfast at the main restaurant of Hotel Westpoint.

Afterwards Miriam and Manuel explored the whole resort. The 40 eco-friendly build bungalows are directly next to the sea and offer a direct view to the famous surf spot Foum Lambouir. You can`t wake up in a better way….

Of course both were also able to watch the riders of the Prince Moulay El Hassan GKA Kite-Surf World Tour during their training. Completely motivated they went kitesurfing as well afterwards.

Happy and satisfied our winners returned to their cosy bungalow after their first kitesurfing session, where they were able to chill a little bit before the official opening ceremony of the Prince Moulay El Hassan GKA Kite-Surf World Tour Dakhla 2017 startet. An all around successful first day ended and they are already excited what awaits them in the next days….stay tuned!
