As riders awoke this morning after a grueling previous two days of competition at the El Gouna Kiteboarding Grand Slam, most were quite happy to see an unusually still Egyptian day. Day three would be a lay day and a chance for most to get some well deserved rest.

For others it was a great day for the local Cable Park (Sliders) or a chance to ride quad bikes or take a trip to the reefs on a Boat. El Gouna is a great destination even without wind as there’s just so much to see and do, you can be sure no one was bored today!

So far the forecast for tomorrow looks like more of the same with a chance for wind possibly later in the week. Hopefully we then see more of the wind we had on the first day of the competition to let the guys in Big Air really show us what it’s all about!
