Weather and Windforecast in Punta Trettu

Now, for sure, you are wondering where you can check the weather and wind forecasts for Punta Trettu. Here below you can find the best weather and wind forecasts websites.
Anyway, you should keep in mind that often, thanks to the local thermal winds, not predicted by the weather forecasts, the wind can be even between 5 and 10 knots stronger than what is expected by Windguru and Windfinder forecasts.
The models of weather forecasts have approximatly 50 km resolution so they can’t predict wind conditions on exact spot. In a weather forecast website / model you can see a forecast “in that area” but real wind conditions on a specific spot can be determined by local effects. Locals effect are determined by many factors and just the locals know how are working the thermal winds.

So, our suggestion is to get a service from a local kiteschool in order don’t miss any day of Kitesurfing.

Kitesurfing Punta Trettu Sardinia, my Zero to Hero Kite Course
Kitesurfing Punta Trettu Sardinia, my Zero to Hero Kite Course

First of all, after I have learned to kitesurf, I can say that Learning to kitesurf is not so hard how it seems.
After long time I would like to start with kitesurfing,  I have attended a Kite Course just this year. As I was a completely beginner, I had a look on internet to find a easy and good spot for kitesurfing in one beautiful place in order to learn to kitesurf during my holidays. Punta Trettu Kite Center & Cafè in Sardinia, here I went! In Punta Trettu I decided for the super Kite Center Punta Trettu Kite Center & Cafè, part of KiteGeneration.

My Course in Punta Trettu: from Zero to Hero

After having a look at the proposed Beginner Kitesurfing Courses  I decided for the Zero to Hero Kite Course.
To be an independent kitesurfer it takes, for most of people, between 12 and 20 hours of kite lessons. But, a motivated person could go from zero to hero in less time.
The kite lessons I had in Punta Trettu were always great and easy, and I go up on the board in a very short time. I had lessons every day, the wind was blowing all the time (Punta Trettu have super wind statistics) and the sun shining every day.

The instructors

I changed instructor every day of lesson: Lucas, Mauro, Giorgio, Riccardo and Matias brought me to be an individual kitesurfer through the following steps learning to kitesurf.

My kite course


First I had to learn the proper kite theory and terminology so that your instructor could give me clear instructions. I learned how to set up the kite (it  is used to harness the power of the wind to glide on the water) and how to make it fly on the space. While kitesurfing, we always stand with our back to the wind facing the same direction as the wind and we stay in the center of the space where the kite can fly and get power : this space is called wind window.  Position of the kite in the wind window determines the power of the kite. The most powered position is when the kite is at 12:00 (directly in front of you), while the less powered positions are at 9 o’clock and 15 o’clock, exactly on our left or right.
The understanding of the wind window is the most important to know before to start to learn and practicing to control the kite, that takes more or less 5 hours.
After I got a good kite control, I moved up to the simulation of the water starts that means moving the kite through wind window to get the required power to let the kite lift us. This exercise were so important to understand where the power really is and how ito get the power, required for the water start.
After the simulation of the water start, I learned the Body Dragging, required in the water for safety reason and, when kite surfing,  to recover the board in case we lost it.
I completed all the above steps in more or less 7 hours. After that I started the real water start on the water with the board: sitting in the water with the board on, keeping the board near the water surface, moving the kite in the correct position into the power zone, I tried and tried until I was gliding on the water.

All was great: The spot of Punta Trettu, The instructors, the services and obviously the fabulous sport of kitesurfing!
