Land sailing  El Gouna where Go-karts meet windsurfing – looks like an awesome way to spend the day…

Strapping yourself to a sail and board to tear up the waves is an age old pastime in Gouna. A wind and adrenaline powered exercise in exhilaration is almost a tradition for some people this time of year. Now all the hydrophobes among you can get in on the sailing action with the arrival of Land Sailing Egypt.

Taking the same basic eco-friendly concept of wind-powered locomotion and applying it to wheels on land instead of a board on water, this land sailing thing looks totally nuts.

Speaking to the man behind the next big thing in Egyptian vehicular sporting, Ahmad El Shal, he described his plans for Eid, “on Sunday and Monday we’ll be doing free trials followed by a competition on Tuesday. We’ll have trophies and prizes for top three finishers.” He goes on to explain that there’s no need to worry if you haven’t done anything like this before, “It’s so easy to pick up. You really only need 4 or 5 minutes before you have the hang of it. You don’t need to be a pro to win.”
