Kitesurfing Chia, Sardinia

In Chia (Domus de Maria, Cagliari, Sardinia), KiteGeration kiteschool offers Kitesurfing Lessons in partnership with Chia Wind Club of Mirco Babini. When the Chia Wind Club of Mirco Babini is closed, KiteGeneration, that is based in Cagliari, offer lessons:

  • Just if there are two or more course (to come in Chia for just one course for us in antieconomical as we are based in Cagliari)
  • in particular wind and sea conditions (wind should be onshore and sea should be not wave).

In particular during the summer season, from May to September due to the Police Restrictions (Kitesurfing is not allowed) due to the large number of bathers and the absence of kite lanes, there is a need to use a lift service (boat) for kitesurfing ad kitesurfing lessons in the sea. For this reason, when is necessary to use a boat for kitesurfing lessons, prices of kite courses in Chia are higher than what is shown in the price list. In this period, lessons can be provided just by Chia Wind Club of Mirco Babini.
