South Sardinia offers good wind conditions for kitesurfing all year round, with many kite spots including the best flat water spots in Europe where water is never too cold even during the winter months: Punta Trettu and Porto Botte or between the spots for wave riding of Funtanamare, Calasetta, Chia and Mari Ermi.
We are based close to all the above spots and we have collected some useful information about the wind seasons in Sardinia.
From March the weather becomes warmer and the temperatures increase with more constant winds. April is the month that officially opens the season with rare cloudy days and rising temperatures.
