Sardinia, as well as being a beautiful country, rich in natural, cultural, culinary traditions and landscapes, has 1,897 km of coastline and is one of the windiest regions in Europe. Because of its location, in the center of the western Mediterranean, Sardinia is a very wind island where the most frequent winds are Mistral (NW) and Scirocco (SE). it is rich in great beaches, of which many are  away from the bustle of the crowds of swimmers. With this conditions, Sardinia can be considered a paradise for kitesurfing: Kitesurf Sardinia, one word!

The main beach of Cagliari, Poetto, is perhaps the best known by tourists. It is between the Sella del Diavolo (Devil’s Saddle) and Quartu Sant’Elena. Besides being famous for its nightlife, it is also a great spot for kitesurfing: there is a lot of space, since Poetto is long approximately 10 km where Mistral, Scirocco and Levante blow almost every day. The beach is sandy and is easily accessible both by car and by public transport. At Poetto beach every year take place some kite events, as the Kite Foil World Championships 2017. To understand in which weather conditions and which kite lessons and courses are proposed in this Kite Spot of Sardinia, you can have a look at the Sardinia Kitesurfing Lessons page.

La Maddalena Spiaggia better knows as Petrol Beach in Capoterra, blown in the summer months by Scirocco, Ostro and Thermic winds. On the hot days of summer it is an ideal spot for kite surfing, even for beginners. To understand in which weather conditions and which kite lessons and courses are proposed in this Kite Spot of Sardinia, you can have a look at the Sardinia Kitesurfing Lessons page.

Another beach for kitesurfing, always in the south-west of Sardinia, is certainly the beach of Chia: white beach and crystal clear waters exposed to the Mistral and the south winds. Chia is a Kite spot for expert and for this reason kite lessons and courses are proposed just in some cases.

Also the bay of Porto Botte is another ideal place for kitesurfing, suitable both for beginners and experts. It is a long bay about 2 km where there are 3 sensational kite spots: Il Fortino, Porto Botte, Is Solinas.

Among others, Punta Trettu, considered one of the best Kite spots in Sardinia.

As seen above, in Sardinia there are many spots for kitesurfing. Many people will wonder: but which is the best spot for kite surfing in Sardinia, the most beautiful, the one where the wind always blows?

Well, there is not!

In Sardinia the wind direction changes very often. It may be that Mistral wind (north west, the best with Mistral are spots Porto Botte and Punta Trettu) or sSrocco (south east, the best spots with Sirocco are Poetto, Petrol Beach, Chia) for a whole week. Or it may be that the Mistral blows for a day, the day after will blow the thermic wind and then scirocco, Grecale or Libeccio (the best place with Libeccio are Geremeas and Villasimius).

So what to do? The suggestion is to contact a school as KiteGeneration, based in Cagliari and Punta Trettu that every day follow the wind in different Kite Spots.

In all cases, it is strongly recommended to have a car to move in the different spots when wind changes direction. However, eye that, if you are not an expert on weather conditions of Sardinia, find the wind often can not be so simple.

Day 4 – Formula Kite Foil World Championship 2017 in Muscat, Oman

It was another day full of drama and excitement at the Oman Formula Kite World Championships. The favored racers were, again, at the front of the pack. Find out more, below, with news provided by Oman Sailing.

With the top fleet stacked with the world’s fastest kite racers the battles at the Formula Kite World Championships in Oman just got a lot fiercer in awesome conditions that provided a perfect stage for the riders’ supreme athleticism.

France’s Nico Parlier dominated in breezes that freshened and hovered between 9 and 11 knots for much of the day off Muscat’s Al Mouj Beach on the Gulf of Oman, framed by a dramatic mountain backdrop.

On smooth waters, Parlier was pushed all the way by his friend and countryman Axel Mazella – who managed to overhaul his rival in race one – and Britain’s Olly Bridge. Often with just metres between them, the three had thrillingly-close finishes after high-speed sub-eight minute laps of the race track.

In the women’s fleet, the reigning International Kiteboarding Association (IKA) Formula Kite World Champion Daniela Moroz, from the US, showed she is human after all when she missed out on winning two of today’s five races. The 16-year-old’s superiority on the leaderboard is so dominant however, that a second and third place, plus a hat-trick of wins, was enough to cement her top spot.

The epic day at the 2017 IKA Formula Kite World Championships, hosted by Oman Sail with associate sponsor Al Mouj Muscat, was marked by fractious drama on the water when reigning IKA Formula Kite World Champion Maxime Nocher, from Monaco, collided with a number of other riders while on port tack.

The incident, the subject of a number of protest hearings in the jury room, forced the USA’s Riley Gibbs and France’s Theo Lhostis, to withdraw from racing for the rest of the day. Nocher also changed out of his wetsuit and pulled out of the fray for the remainder of the day.

Day three of the championship saw the leading riders divided into gold, silver and bronze fleets for the two-day finals series, seeded on the basis of the opening exchanges in the qualifiers. Day five of the competition, dedicated to a medal series, will pit the top 10 men against one another for the crown and the spoils.

the basis of Parlier’s near-peerless day, riding on his biggest 19m kite, he would appear to be in the box seat for the title. At one time, Parlier struggled in lighter breezes that perhaps favoured lighter rivals, but he now appears to have mastery of all conditions.

“It’s definitely been a little bit tighter today,” said Parlier. “It’s mostly between me and Axel Mazella as usual, but now that we’re competing with Olly Bridge and some other good riders, it changes everything.”

As overnight leader, Bridge, who had been competing in a different fleet in the opening qualifying series, knew he would have his work cut out for him with the French duo in the mix. He finished in second place on the leaderboard, splitting the pair.

“It’s definitely been more difficult today,” he said. “But I’m getting better. Nico Parlier is just very, very fast. Upwind, downwind, everywhere. But with Axel Mazella, I’m quite close, so I am happy with things.”

Kite Foil World Championship 2017 in Cagliari, Sardinia

Cagliari, Poetto Beach, 8 october 2017 – Parlier Takes KiteFoil World Title While Mazella Grabs GoldCup Crown

France’s Nico Parlier put on an imperious display to seize the International Kiteboarding Association (IKA) KiteFoil World Championship on the final day of racing on the Italian resort island of Sardinia.

Even before the last race of the Sardinia Kiteboard Grand Slam, Parlier’s haul of bullets during the four days of competition meant he had the championship in the bag because of his vastly superior score.

But after adding two more bullets to his tally in the opening two races on the flat waters of the Gulf of Angels of Cagliari’s Poetto Beach, Parlier looked like he would make it a perfect hat-trick in the day’s final race after rounding the first top mark in the lead once again.

Uncharacteristically, he fell when he missed a gybe in the light, shifty breezes and had to watch much of head of the fleet ride past as he tried to restart. Yet by the bottom mark Parlier was back up to sixth position and with his raw pace and finesse he managed to claw his way back to finish second, just behind countryman Axel Mazella.

“I could have stayed on the beach for that last race because I knew I had it won already,” said Parlier. “Still, I had to stay concentrated for the whole regatta. As I expected, the level of competition was very high. So I’m really delighted to  win.”

Mazella’s stellar performance earned him the second spot on the podium for the World title, but as the regatta doubled as the fourth stop of the 2017 IKA KiteFoil GoldCup series it was also enough to secure him the overall tour title.
The 20-year-old Frenchman had been peerless at the GoldCup’s previous back-to-back stops at Weifang and Pingtan, China, last month, when he won race after race in light conditions that left rivals awed by his speed and precision.

“I’m really, really happy to win the tour title,” said a beaming Mazella. “But it’s slightly bitter-sweet. I’d loved to have taken the World Championship title too. We’ve had all the top guys here, so it was very tight and very interesting. I hope it will be the same at the Formula Kite Worlds in Oman next month.”
The intense competition at the top of the fleet left reigning IKA Formula Kite world champion and KiteFoil GoldCup title holder, Maxime Nocher (MON), in an unfamiliar third spot on the podium. But after a four-month layoff and little training for the event, Nocher was pleased with his showing after a consistent series of top place finishes in the regatta’s 12 races that have left him hungry to get back on top in the increasingly competitive environment.

“It was very tight and I’m quite happy for my comeback,” said Nocher. “For sure I will go to Oman now. The level in foiling is really going up. Before, I was just leading. Now there’s very little between the top 10 guys. The technology is advancing like crazy and I’m working on my own foil. So let’s see.”

With virtually all the leading men among the 39-strong fleet from 14 nations at the Sardinia Kiteboard Grand Slam—sponsored by the City of Cagliari and Tourism Sardinia, supported by Yacht Club Cagliari—the five-day event produced some of the fastest, tightest racing of the year.
But straight out of the gate, Team Enata’s Mazella racked up two bullets on the first day of racing in light conditions that upset the form books that saw Parlier as the firm favourite after he had won nearly race this year.
True to form, though, the wheels of the Parlier machine began to grind on the second day when the gusty Mistral winds hit 40kts. On his Mike’s Lab foil and board, and Ozone R1V2 kites, he began racking up bullets and continued to do so right to close of racing, only faltering occasionally when he placed second, a record that made him untouchable.
For a time Britain’s Guy Bridge, 18, on his Levitaz Bionic foil and Flysurfer Sonic Race kites, looked as if he could challenge for a podium spot. But despite his searing pace, a chequered last two days left him in fourth spot overall.
His mother, multiple world champion, Steph Bridge, among the three women racing in the competitive mixed fleet, won the women’s title, but was nonetheless dismayed with her final day’s outing that took the gloss of things a little.

“I had a bit of a disaster,” said Bridge. “I don’t think I’ve ever in my life been out in such tricky, gusty conditions. But it’s the same for everyone. It’s just that it’s just not good to end a great event on sad note. I felt I should have done better.”
French 16-year-old Anaïs Mai Desjardins, undoubtedly a rising star, took the second podium spot behind Bridge. But her win at the KiteFoil GoldCup in Korea and a third in Weifang, China, were enough for her to take the overall tour crown.

 

Cagliari, Poetto Beach, 7 october 2017 – 

 

 

Cagliari, Poetto Beach, 6 october 2017 – Second day of races at the Kite Foil World Champioship 2017 at the Poetto Beach of Cagliari, Sardinia.

The day was signed by a really strong mistral wind, that reached over 40 knots.

These conditions enhance the technical and physical skills of the 39 international top riders here at Poetto.

French Nico Parlier has been the absolut dominator of the day with three consecutive first place. This allowed him to pass French country man Axel Mazella on the lead.

Another great comeback was from the world champion Maxime Nocher that jumped in third place after the three third places today.

British Guy Bridge is now in 4th  Overall, whil Italian Mario Calbucci is in sixth.

Tomorrow morning skippers meeting at 10.00 h. with first possible start at 11.00.

The wind is expected from NE rotating to east in the second part of the day.

 

Cagliari, poetto Beach, 5 october 2017 – None of the favourites to take the International Kiteboarding Association (IKA) KiteFoil World Championship title had it all their own in the opening exchanges on sparkling blue Mediterranean waters off the Italian island of Sardinia.

In a surprise upset to the form books, France’s Axel Mazella scored bullets in the first two races, holding countryman Nico Parlier at bay and pushing him into unfamiliar second spots on each occasion as the shifty breezes vexed the entire fleet.

Yet in the opening day’s third and final race both Frenchmen—arguably the fastest racers in the fleet—came unstuck. Each separately tangled with other riders and had to fight their back way into contention but finished slightly down the order. That left the door open for reigning IKA KiteFoil GoldCup title holder and Formula Kite World Champion Maxime Nocher (MON) to take the win on his comeback at the Sardinia Kiteboarding Grand Slam after a four-month layoff.

Only Britain’s increasingly quick teenager, Guy Bridge, could split the order with three consistent finishes in the thermal breezes that built to around 12kts and left him third on the leaderboard. His mother, multiple world champion Steph Bridge (GBR), had a slightly chequered outing missing one start by several minutes after suffering a tangle launching her foil kite on the beach. But racing in the mixed fleet, she managed to keep her nose in front of 16-year-old Anaïs Mai Desjardins (FRA) to give her the edge on the leaderboard.

Still, for all the drama of mixed fortunes on the water, the opening day of the IKA KiteFoil World Championship, which is also the concluding contest of the four-stop KiteFoil GoldCup series that began in May in Korea before proceeding to China for back-to-back events last month, lived up to the hype. With virtually all the world’s top men on the startline for the first time this year on the first day of the four-day regatta, sponsored by Cagliari city and the Sardinia region, the showdown was bound to produce fireworks.

That Mazella opened his account taking two comfortable victories, leaving Parlier in his wake, was slightly unexpected. On the two laps of the windward-leeward track Mazella took early leads from where he barley looked back using his favoured 15m Enata foil kite. “I got good starts just in front of Nico Parlier,” said Mazella. “But I needed to control the races all the time. I was just in front of him, so when he took a slightly higher angle, I did the same. If he went deeper, I followed suit. I’m really confident on my 15m kite.”

Parlier had also started the day on a 15m Ozone R1V2 kite that had been big enough for the early winds. But for the racer who favours heavier conditions, the tricky breezes proved slightly troublesome. “It was pretty light wind,” said Parlier. “But the biggest problem was that I had no idea which part of the course was favoured. In the last race I had a crash into another rider and that really didn’t help, though I managed to get back into it at the end.”

With the two Frenchmen fighting to get back on terms in the final race Nocher, who had switched to a second prototype foil, found another gear that gave him his first cherished victory, just ahead of Théo L’hostis (FRA), Italy’s Mario Calbucci and Guy Bridge, who were hot on his heels. “After the first two races I changed the foil,” said Nocher. “It had been giving me a lot of trouble, and the third race was way better and I managed to win, so I’m happy. It’s my comeback after four months off, and I’ve only been training for two weeks, so it’s a good start.”

1. Kitesurfing and Kite Foil: what are they?

Let us now explain to the less experienced, what are the kitesurfing and the kitefoil.

Kitesurfing

Barack Obama Kitesurfing
Barack Obama Kitesurfing

Kitesurfing is a surface water sport that consists of gliding on the water suface  with a board thanks to the power transmitted by a kite used as a sail. It is an adrenaline and beautiful sport, which is becoming always more popular even among famous people, including Barak Obama.

KiteFoil

Kite Foil World Championship 2017 in Cagliari, Sardinia
Kite Foil World Championship 2017 in Cagliari, Sardinia

Kite foil is a special kitesurfing discipline in which a particular board is used: this board, Hydro Foil board, has a long fin with wings that allow the rider to escape completely from the water and reach incredible speeds (even over 60 km / h ) thanks to the very little resistance that this fin reaches in the water. Kite Foil is the Formula One of Kitesurf, a show not to be missed!

2. Format of the Kite Foil World Championship 2017 in Cagliari, Sardinia

The format of the World Championship of Kite Foil 2017 will be Fleet Racing.

Fleet Racing is a series of races where the riders challenge each other. At the end of each racing, the first ranked rider gets a point, the second ranked gets two points, the third ranked gets 3 points and so on.

At the end of all races, the rider who has scored the smallest total of points will be the 2017 Kite Foil World Champion.

The rankings can change up to the last race for two reasons:

  1. because each race is different from the others and any result is always possible;
  2. because every 5 races , the riders could discard the worst result obtained in the previous races.

Separate rankings will be drawn for women, men, Youth and Masters (over 35) and Grand Master (over 45).

Stay tuned! Do not miss the Kite Foil World Champioship 2017!

Strapless Kite Surf Course: Details

Who can attend the Strapless Kite Course?

Strapless Kite Course is designed to people who already know how to kitesurf up-wind and confidently with a twin-tip (a standard kite board). Strapless Kite Surf Course is best suited to those who can already kitesurf confidently with a normal board, because in strapless kitesurfing you won’t be attached to the board, being harder to stay on, keep balanced and control the kite at the same time.

Instead, if you are a surfer who wants to enjoy more days in the waves, you should start with a regular kite course to learn how to maneuver the kite.

Kitesurfing in Cagliari, Giorgino Kite Beach

Kitesurfing at Giorgino Kite Beach Cagliari
Kitesurf at Giorgino Kite Beach Cagliari Sardinia
Kitesurf at Giorgino Kite Beach Cagliari Sardinia

The Cagliari Kite Beach of Giorgino is the first and, at the moment, the only kite area in the district of Cagliari, in Sardinia, where is possible to Kitesurf during the summer season. The Kite Area of Giorgino has been created and is managed, during the summer season, by KiteGeneration Kiteschool.

Giorgino is a free Kite Beach open to all Kitesurfers: No fees are required. The only obligations for kiters that like to kitesurf at Giorgino kite beach are:

  1. All Kiters must have an insurance specific for kitesurfing. If you are a Kiteboarding FIV affiliated, if you have a VDWS card for Kiteboarding or if you have any other card suitable for kitesurfing with insurance, that is fine. If you do not have a kite card with the above requirements, you need to do it. If you wish, you can subscribe to our Kiteschool and Sport Association with a fee of 25 euro: the fee will includes a Kite card with insurance (you can find the insurance coverage at this page) that can be used all over the world.
  2. The kiters that like to kitesurf at Giorgino Kite Beach must use the launch lane, both to get away from and to return to the beach. Once you will be at of the beach bu using the kite lane, you will have all the sea available for kitesurfing. In case the return to the beach can not be done by using the lane, because physical or technical problems or because no winds, to return to the beach must be done by using the body drag.
  3. Kiters not yet independents (ie: kiters that do not have good kite control, still unable to relaunch the kite from the water, that do not have a good body drag level, that do not know all the safety rules) must take kitesurf lessons until a proper kite level will be reached. Safety First of all!
  4. Kites shall be armed and landed in the proper area.

Cagliari Kite Beach of Giorgino: Description of the Kite Spot

Kite Lessons in Cagliari, Giorgino Kite Beach
Kite Lessons in Cagliari, Giorgino Kite Beach

The Giorgino Kite Spot, called by the Kiters also Little George, is a kite spot located 5 minuter by car from the center of Cagliari, heading towards Capoterra, right after the new Canal Harbor.

It is a perfect place for kitesurfing, especially with the thermal wind (which usually blows from March / April to October), because of shallow water and sandy bottom, because there are no bathers and because, during the summer season, there is a dedicated Kite Area.

Kite Beach Cagliari
Kite Beach Cagliari

Giorgino is actually the only kitesurfing area in Cagliari where you can practice kite surfing in safety during the summer season without risking to have problems with bathers and authorities.

The area is accessible to everyone free of charge. However, we must comply with some of the common sense and security rules that follow:

The wind at Giorgino, Cagliari

Giorgino Kite Beach Cagliari
Giorgino Kite Beach Cagliari

The best wind is thermal wind that blows in absence of perturbations. Theaml wind usually blows constantly with an intensity between 12 to 18 knots.

Other winds good for kitesurfing at Giorgino are all eastern and southern winds that sometimes could give even small waves.

The mistral comes side off. During the summer season, with the open Kite Area and a boat rescue, it could be possible to kite even with the mistral

How to get to Giorgino’s Kite Area

From Cagliari, take the “Strada Statale” SS 195 towards Pula – Chia.

Immediately after the Scafa bridge (in Italian, Ponte della Scafa), there is the entrance to the first part of Giorgino, where is located the small and old “Fishermen Village“, famous for the fish Festival that takes place every September. To get to the Giorgino Kite Area, you do not have to turn to the Fishermen Village but you should continue along the SS 195 until the road passes from 4 to 2 lanes. Right here, on the left you could find the Giorgino Kite Area.

For those who have a navigator / Mobile with GPS, the coordinates of the spot are:
