The Dakhla Downwind Challenge 2019 The epic adventure is now underway!
The 5th edition of the Dakhla Downwind Challenge, a sporting event that is a true adventure; a 500 km downwind kitesurf expedition, commenced this Wednesday in Dakhla, Morocco. The celebration of this event marks the 40th anniversary of the recuperation of the province of Oued Eddahab.
