Learn to Kitesurf Sardinia - Beginners Kitesurf Camp

If you are new to kiting or if you only have tested a few times, this is your perfect option. The conditions in Sardinia are perfect to learn kiting!

A normal day IN SARDINIA

Wake up to a lovely breakfast with homemade bread, cheese, Italian ham, cake, marmalade and tomatoes from the garden, and more. The wind normally kicks in at 11, so you have time to enjoy the morning, the food and the view. We will take you to the kitespot, ten minutes by car. You will meet up with your instructor and start the kite course. There are only two participants on each instructor, so you are guaranteed that you learn a lot during the time you have. We return to the camp when the sun goes down (around 19:00). A delicious dinner and wine will be served at 21:00 (price 20 EUR). We will take you to our favourite restaurants in Sant Antioco and Carbonia two nights during the camp week.

Who is it for?

This package is for complete beginners, or for people who only have tried kiting few times. Our professional instructors will closely monitor you, and they will make sure that you develop your skills in line with your level. We want you to have fun with kiting, feel safe, be hooked on the sport and meet new fun people you can travel with later. The conditions for learning are perfect: You have a plenty of space, flat and shallow water and consistent wind. What makes Porto Botte unique is that the kite course area is regulated ONLY for teaching, so you don’t have to think about other kiters or swimmers when you are already putting all your focus into the kite.

HOW TO GET THERE

Arrival- and departure day is Wednesday. Cagliari is the nearest airport, approximately one-hour drive from the camp. We recommend you to book your flight with SAS/Norwegian, Alitalia or KLM, depending on which city you depart from. Some of the small Lufthansa flights do not accept kite luggage onboard, but this is a great option if you are not bringing kite gear. There are direct flights from Munich (Lufthansa), Zurich (Swiss Airlines), Amsterdam (KLM), London (Easy Jet) and Frankfurt (Condor).

 

The cheapest option from Scandinavia is to fly to Alghero and rent a car for the week. There are direct flights to Alghero every Wednesday from Oslo, Stavanger, Gothenburg and Copenhagen. The flight time is 3,5 hours and the flights are usually cheap. It takes 3 hours to drive from Alghero to the camp, and you can find affordable car rentals at the airport. Check out www.tui.no, www.tui.se or www.tui.dk

 

Another cheap option from Scandinavia is to fly directly to Olbia and rent a car for the week. There are direct cheap flights with charter companies (Apollo, ving), SAS and Norwegian. Olbia is 4 hours driving from the camp.

  • Remember to add the “transfer package” to your booking if you don´t plan to rent your own car. The transfer package includes transfer to/from the kite spot, supermarkets, restaurants and a daytrip to beautiful Porto Pino. Price: 130 euro.

    The taxi to and from the airport in Cagliari is not included in the transfer package. Lapoint can organize this for you. Send us an email with your flight number and arrival time if you want to be picked up. The price depends on the amount of people sharing (35-80 euro per person).

    The cheapest option is to take a train from the airport to train stop Carbonia. Check the train hours at http://www.trenitalia.com/ Type what time you want to depart from “Cagliari-Elmas”. Your arrival destination is “Carbonia Serbariu”. The transfer from the train station in Carbonia to the camp is 10 euro. Note that the last train leaves from Cagliari Elmas (Airport) at 20:45.

The lesson system

How your 12 hours are used depends on the wind. There are only two students on each instructor and each hour is very effective. You normally do two sessions of 1-2 hours each day. You need a rest with food and water in between the lessons 😉 They are intense, and you are going to learn a lot each time you are on the water. The students can expect to finish the lessons after 3 or 4 days, and you have the option to rent gear if you are independent and the instructor consider this to be safe. If you are on a different level than the other students (or if there is only one student per instructor), then you get private lessons. Each lesson is 1 hour, and you have 6 lessons in total.

 

What goal is realistic to have after 12 hours of kite lessons? (The summer camps)

This depends on each student, but normally you should know the safety and theory to continue practicing on your own. You have kited your first meters on the board. Some of you are already riding back and forward; some are practicing to ride upwind, while others might need a few more lessons to be independent enough to continue on their own. This is very individual.
 
Can I use the kite gear when there are no lessons?
No, kite gear is only included during the lessons. You can rent gear after you are done with your hours, and continue practicing by your own. Your instructor needs to approve that this is safe and ok. If you are not independent enough yet to be practicing by yourself, you have the option to buy more private lessons.
