How many workouts can you do for five hours straight as whales breach the water alongside you? Welcome to the world of windsurfing, where challenging sessions in the sun lead to the perfectly sculpted beach body.
A Middle Eastern nucleus for water sports, the Red Sea is a haven for windsurfers, thanks in no small part to the wind tunnel created by the mountains flanking the Gulf of Suez. The powerful gusts that funnel through to the Red Sea every afternoon gives the area more than 300 days a year of windsurf-friendly weather. On average, the farther north you’re willing to go, the better the conditions you’ll find.
