Our Kitesurf Center is based both in Punta Trettu and in Cagliari, in Sardinia.
Depending on the blowing wind, usually our kite classes could be taken in:

- in the kite spots around Cagliari (approximately 20 minutes by car from the city center), that are Poetto Beach of Cagliari, and Petrol Beach.
Sometimes we could use 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 Punta Trettu.
