We are IKO Kite Center (International Kiteboarding Organization) with certified instructors dedicated to the guests of the structure and we can offer a personalized service to everyone.
KITE COURSES & LESSONS
We offer kitesurf courses in Punta Trettu, which is our home spot for the kitesurf school. The courses are for all levels, in particular we have instructors with further specialization for teaching children. All our students wear radio helmets during lessons and rental; at the end of the course they receive the IKO certification which certifies the level reached.
We collaborate with the best kitesurf schools in Sardinia. We can guarantee our guests the best welcome in every South Sardinia kite spot and we offer students the opportunity to move if the wind conditions are better in other spots in the area.

"Kite House Sardinia is the perfect place to learn @ Punte Trettu. Perfect setting, good instructors, very secure and safety and fun first ! We will be back for sure and it is a great spot and school and place to stay at Kitehouse Sardina with Daniele and his instructors as a very committed, patient and professional teacher, having fun at the same time. Our twins (10 years) had lessons with Daniele and loved it. They hardly speak English but understood him very very well. He made sure the keep the fun, learn fast, guide them by safety rules and made big steps. Full kite control, body drag and waterstart...ready to practice themselves now. Thanks!!"
KITE SPOTS SOUTH SARDINIA
In the South West Sardinia there are great spots for kitesurfing with wind blowing for twelve months a year with an impressive frequency.
A few kilometers from the Kite House there are some of the best flat water spots in Europe such as Punta Trettu and Porto Botte with constant wind from mid of March to mid of November and ideal conditions for kitesurfing and freestyle training.
Here are some good wave riding spots that work mainly from October to May such as Funtanamare, Porto Pino and Calasetta.
Moving further South we find the beautiful Chia (nice waves with East wind in Autumn) and Maddalena Beach in Capoterra, a great alternative in summer with high-pressure condition and South wind.
Do not forget Is Solinas beach and Punta S'Aliga within a twenty minutes driving from the Kite House.
Note that in Sardinia from mid of September to end of June you can kite in every beach respecting the rules of common good sense, while during the “swimming season" (especially in July and August) the "authorized areas" are not many, laws are more restrictive and authorities tend to make checks.
WIND FORECAST SARDINIA
In the South West of Sardinia there are good wind conditions for kitesurfing practically all year round, with many spots including the best flat water spots in Europe where water is never too cold even during the few "winter months": Punta Trettu and Porto Botte or between the waves of Funtanamare, Calasetta, Chia and Mari Ermi.
At Kite House Sardinia, in collaboration with the kite schools in Sardinia, we are committed to give up-to-date information of all the spots in South Sardinia, providing live suggestions about wind and best weather conditions for your kitesurfing day.
Note that the wind forecast websites don't consider the thermal wind and the "Venturi effect" that work a lot especially in Punta Trettu and Porto Botte. The real wind here is always 5/10 kn more than the forecast say!
WIND SEASONS SARDINIA
Living near the spot for many years and throughout the year, while aware that the conditions may vary every year, we try to give some useful information on the "windy seasons in Sardinia".
