Hurghada must be one of the best places to learn to kitesurf. There are three bays with the downwind one popular with windsurfers, leaving the two upwind ones with large shallow areas free for kitesurfers. There is plenty of space to practice flying the kite, bodydragging and waterstarting in shallow areas. This extends far enough from the beach to allow 100m runs before getting into deeper water. Once your skill and confidence has built up, you will be able to blast out to a sandbar approximately 1km offshore. From there you can walk up wind a little and head back to the beach. Even on the first runs you should be able to get back to the downwind end of the 2nd bay. It's no problem if you drift further downwind as there is another km of beach to land on.
