Amazing place to learn to kite surf. After 8 years of watching the other half enjoy the sport, I decided to take the plunge and have lessons. The staff were so welcoming and made me feel so safe that I really enjoyed the whole of the learning experience. It really is the most wonderful kite surfing venue.

I can also say if you are a more experienced kite surfer then this place also caters for you. The impromptu tips and knowledge from the instructors, and the array of equipment there, makes for a pleasurable trip for the other half. We barely left kite junkies for the entire fortnight we were there. I happily swapped diving, to continue learning to kite surf with Tony from kite junkies.

We enjoyed it so much that we will be returning this year with a larger group of us.

In summary, great staff, great site, excellent instructors and carefree kite surfing. They even ensured my left behind iPad made it safely back to the UK!

The guys from the Junkies were very professional & friendly. Kite spot was very comfortable for kitesurfing. Frederick and Tony were always ready to help. The beach staff was always there when we need them.
The wind was not strong enough, but it's just a matter of our luck.
Thank you guys.

An excellent time as usual. The beach staff did a superb job as always, being attentive and really looking after you and your equipment. Frederik is as ever the congenial host. The wind blew consistently 12 days out of 14. What more could you need. See you all again soon.

Another fantastic visit to Kite Junkies always feels like we are back home, catching up with old friends & new. Even with the tragic events that took place during our stay & the uncertainty of our return flight, Fredrik Aafke & the Team kept us all relaxed.
Great kiting, Excellent service, Great location

Looking forward to our next trip to see our extended family

Just returned from a fantastic week in Sharm (Nabq) where we decided to make use of The Junkies' storage and kite services based on the other very positive TripAdvisor reviews (we were very happy to find that they were all true!)
From the outset, Frederik and the guys made us feel very welcome and did everything to get us set-up and out on the water really quickly each day. A big thanks to Sherif and Abdul who were both skilled and patient in equal measure in setting the kites up and keeping a watchful eye on us returning back to the beach. The instructors were really friendly and always willing to give plenty of hints and tips to help you scale the learning curve. We very much look forward to returning to Nabq and Kite Junkies as soon as we can!
Couple of watch-outs for that spot: advisable to wear surf shoes when out on the water - and watch out for shallow water at low tide further out as there are some rocks and sea urchins (although both are very visible and easily avoided). Apart from that - a top spot for learning, improving and having fun. You'll love it.

As a complete beginer I booked a course to learn IKO 1 & 2.
After 3 days I had reached the level I wanted.
The staff were great, very profesional & friendly.
I would definately recomend this school to others.

A fantastic week with the guys, plenty of sound advice, excellent facilities and as I brought my own kit the guys looked after it as if it was there own. Would highly recommend and I hope the current issues in sharm soon subside so that business as normal can resume.
