The best beach to kitesurf in Chia is Su Giudeu beach.

The beaches of Chia statistically have a very high number of windy days. The best winds for kitesurfing Chia are the Grecale (NE), the Levante (E) and the Scirocco (SE), that usually create great waves.

During the summer, in the sunny and warm days, it blows a thermal wind that  is gusty near the beach but enjoyable 50 meters far from the coast. In this season, usually from May to September, Chia is very crowded. That is why for kitesurfing in Chia during the Summer, a boat to launch the kite 200 m away from the beach is needed.

During the winter season, Ponente can give waves of almost 3 meters. Those waves are good for surfers but not for kiters, giving that this wind is offshore.

For all the above reasons, Chia is a Wave Kite Spot for medium or advanced riders, not for beginners.

When the Chia Wind Club is closed, KiteGeneration, that is based in Cagliari, offers lessons:

  • Just if there are two or more kite courses (to come in Chia from Cagliari for just one course is anti-economic);
  • in particular wind and sea conditions (wind should be onshore / side-onshore and they should be no waves).

During the Summer season, from May to September, due to Guard Coast Restrictions, Kitesurfing from the beach is not allowed because the large number of bathers and the lack of kite launch lanes. That is why in the Summer, for Kitesurfing and for Kite Lessons, a boat to lunch the Kite 200 m far from the coast is needed.
