Individual lessons Level 2 - Sardinia

Level 2 is for kiters who have taken lessons before and want to learn better technique and gain confidence on the water. Whether you are dreaming about your first boardstart, upwind riding or jumping, this is the course for you. In level 2, you will have a personal coach, who will safely guide your progression.

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 usually kicks in at 11, so you have plenty of time to enjoy the morning, the food and the view. We will take you to the kite spot, only ten minutes away by car, where you will meet up with your instructor and start the kite course. There are only two participants per instructor, so you are guaranteed extensive follow-up and individual feedback. We return to the camp at sunset before a delicious, home-made dinner. Two nights per week we go out as a group to our favourite restaurants in Sant’Antioco and Carbonia.

 

Who is it for?

Level 2 is designed for you who want to learn your first water-start, ride upwind or start jumping. Your coach will tailor the course to your level and goals and support your progression. We will kite at our home spot with plenty of space and flat water to best boost your development. We think the most important thing is for you to have fun in the water, feel safe, get a thrill from kiting and meet loads of great people.

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.nowww.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”.
