A unique adventure

The fourth edition of the Dakhla Downwind, a unique event in Morocco, is to register Dakhla and the region of Dakhla-Oued Eddahab as a major destination for water sports and to create a dynamic event for Dakhla and the active partners.

Throughout this kite journey,the riders will discover and enjoy the scenery, sand dunes and beautiful beaches of the South Coast of Morocco. They will participate in a great adventure thanks to the opening of the "sea" exclusively for Dakhla Downwind and free of any kitesurfing navigation exceptionally for this event.

Beyond the dimension of sporting challenge, charitable and environmental actions will be conducted.


Pearl of the South

The southern region has an immense potential for tourism. With over three hundred days of sunshine per year, with wind and endless white sandy beaches, the "Pearl of the South" has everything for a great tourist destination.

With a fragile ecological heritage that must be preserved, a niche tourism based on  nature and water sports, the region of Dakhla-Oued Eddahab has all the assets to become a key destination for kitesurfing.


30 kitesurfers will participate in this unprecedented event.

They will navigate the Moroccan Coast from Dakhla to Lagouira powered only by the wind.

The departure will be at Dakhla. Bring your kite or your boat and follow them to the White Dune.

From August 13th to the 21st. The departure will be the August 14th at 11:00.






Perseverance, respect, 

solidarity and tolerance

The Dakhla Downwind is not a speed race but an endurance journey
of which the goal is to reach port by cruising only along pristine beaches
for a return to sources of Adventure while being  supervised by professionals.
With moments conducive to meetings and sharing experiences between nationalities worldwide.
All continents are represented with an atmosphere that is decidedly cosmopolitan.

It wouldn't be possible without:
