Where the Kite Lessons and Courses take place
KiteGeneration Kitesurf Center is based in Sardinia, both in Cagliari and Punta Trettu.
Usually we teach Kitesurf in the spot around Cagliari and in Punta Trettu, by choosing the spot depending on weather forecast and wind direction. Between these two kite spots, most of the times, we can find the best conditions for kite lessons). Sometimes we could give kite lessons also in other kite spots of Southern Sardinia (e.g. Villasimius and Porto Botte), but only in particular cases and favorable weather conditions. So, definitely, we can guarantee our services only in Cagliari and in Punta Trettu.. In fact, even if Sardinia is a very windy island (for more info on weather conditions in Sardinia have a look at this article), it is impossible guarantee the availability of wind always in the same kite spot. But, moving between Cagliari and Punta Trettu and sometimes other kite spots, we can almost always reach a windy kite beach with proper windy conditions for Kite Lessons! Moving to different kite beaches, obviously, we cannot be 100% sure there will be wind all days, but we have a really high chance to offer kite lessons everyday.
Depending on the blowing wind, most of the times,kite classes will take place in the following kite spots:
Kite Lessons and Courses usually start after 12 pm (due to the wind that usually blows well after 12 pm). Sometimes the Kite Lessons can start early (at 9-10 am) or in the late afternoon (4-5 pm) when particular weather / wind conditions are present (planning and timing of kite lessons usually can be fixed only 1-2 days before the lessons, when the weather forecast is more clear).

We always choose the kite spot for lessons on daily basis depending on weather conditions in order to find the best conditions for kitesurfing! Usually, most of the times, we could advise you about the time and the best kite spot for kite lessons, only the day before the lessons.
So, depending on the blowing wind, usually our kite classes could be taken in:
Punta Trettu in the south-west-east coast of Sardinia (approximately 1 hour by car from the center of Cagliari), where we have our Kite Center, the Punta Trettu Kite House & Bar.
the spots around Cagliari (approximately 20 minutes by car from the city center), that are Poetto Beach of Cagliari, Petrol Beach.
Sometimes we could give kite lessons also in other kite spots of Southern Sardinia (e.g. Villasimius and Porto Botte), but only in particular cases and favorable weather conditions. So, definitely, we can guarantee our services only in Cagliari and in Punta Trettu.
During the summer season, because many beaches are crowded, the most of times our Kitesurfing lessons take place at Petrol Beach or Punta Trettu.
Obviously we cannot be sure that it will be windy all days. But moving between Cagliari and Punta Trettu, we could offer kite classes almost everyday.
In case it will be impossible to complete your course because of lack of wind, you will be refunded in proportion to the taken hours. No refund is provided for other reasons no depending by us or by weather conditions.
if you have paid for 10 hours kite lessons and have taken just 8 hours of kite lessons because of the lack of wind (lack of wind have to be verified with the instructor) you will be refunded in proportion to not taken hours (all prices for kite lessons can be found at our price list page, here).
if you have paid for 10 hours kite lessons and you have taken just 8 hours of kite lessons because of other reasons different by weather conditions or for some reason not depending by us (i.e: student headache, problems with transportation, delay, etc.), you will not be refunded.

Note on the Best Sardinia Kitesurfing Spots: Many people will wonder: which is the best kite spot in Sardinia, the most beautiful, the one where the wind always blows? Well, there is no. In Sardinia the wind direction changes very often and when the wind changes direction, the kite spot will change too. Anyway, the Kite Spot of Sardinia considered among the best kite spot in the world is Punta Trettu.
What time the Kitesurfing Lessons start
Kite Lessons and Courses usually start after 12 pm (in fact, the wind, usually blows after 12 pm). Sometimes Kite Lessons and Courses can start early in the morning (at 9-10 am) or late in the afternoon (4-5 pm) when particular weather / wind conditions are present (planning and timing of kite lessons / courses usually can be fixed only 1-2 days before the lessons, when the weather forecast is more clear). For this reason, most of the times, we could advise you about the time and the kite spot where the kite lessons will take place, only the day before the lessons.
General notes on Kitesurfing Lessons and Kite Camp
Kitesurfing Courses and Lessons include all the technical equipment (wetsuit, helmet, bar and lines, kite, harness, board, etc.);
Shuttle Service to the Kitesurfing spots could be offered from Cagliari, with a daily fee. People that like to take this service, will move with the instructors. Expecially during the summer season, the instructors could have several courses: in this case, the students that got the shuttle service, should wait the instructors will finish their lessons before to go back. People that would like to go back immediately after their kite lessons, could ask for a private driver/shuttle service by paying an extra cost (depending on the spot distance from Cagliari the price may vary from 30 to 100 euros: e.g 30 euro from Giorgino, 80 euro from Punta Trettu, 100 euro from Porto Botte; the taxi costs more or less twice than the private shuttle service). Kite Camp Packages includes the normal shuttle service (shuttle service with the instructor).
The Kitesurf is suitable for everyone who has a good health and that is capable to swim; only the Mini Kite Course for Beginners could be suitable for people with good health but not capable to swim.
We strongly recommend to avoid the “do it yourself” on kitesurf in order do not be dangerous for yourself and the others people;
The individual attitudes for learning kitesurf can be very different from student to student: they can depend on age, practiced sports, athletic and mental conditions, etc; therefore the time required for learning kitesurf can be different for each student. With the Beginner Kite Course the instructors of Kitegeneration bring the students to control the kite and to have at least the first water-start and glide on the water.
