Porto Pino is one of the most beautiful beaches in Sardinia, with white sand beaches and turquoise waters. The wind is best when it blows from the NW (Mistral) or SW. The conditions are calm with small waves or chop though after 2-3 days of strong winds glassy waves can build to 1-1.5m perfect for your surf board. Is Solinas is the perfect spot for freestyle riders with flat, shallow for 80-120m offshore with no waves or sea current. Lessons are held in Porto Pino from June-September and in Is Solinas in April, May and October. Both spots are great for beginners, we always teach in deep water for our students safety. The wind most commonly blows from the North bringing 15-25 knots from around 11am until late afternoon. A 3/2mm wetsuit is recommended in early/later summer and a 2mm or just board shorts in mid summer.
With amazing wind, delicious food and some of the best wine in the world, Sardinia is one of the best destinations for a kite holiday.
