Punta Trettu is a tip (“Punta”) that faces straight ahead (“Trettu” in Sardinian, “Dritta” in Italian) to the island of Sant’Antioco,  where the wind almost always blows during the year.

By adding the perfect wind conditions to the other great characteristic of this beach, the shallow and flat water, we can understand why Punta Trettu is considered a paradise for kitesurfing.

The position of Punta Trettu along the channel between Sardinia and the small Island of Sant’Antioco, guarantees great wind conditions for Kitesurfing.

In Punta Trettu are working the following winds:

  1. Mistral, wind from North-West), that is the main wind during the year,
  2. Ponente, wind from West,
  3. Scirocco, wind from South-East,
  4. Ostro, wind from South (works well if strong),
  5. Levante, wind from South-East (it works well if strong),
  6. Libeccio, wind from South-West (it works well if strong).

As said before, the above winds wind blow constantly during the year, and thanks to the “natural channel” between Sardinia and the island of Sant’Antioco, the winds are always constant and direct. In addition, during the summer and spring season, the peculiar morphology of Punta Trettu creates a local thermal wind which often boosts the wind of Mistral: for this reason this wind is often 5 or 10 knots stronger than what is forecast by Windguru and Windfinder.

Considering that the models to forecast the weather have an accuracy of approximately 50 km, they could not predict exactly the wind conditions in a exact place. In fact the wind conditions on a specific spot can be affected by local effects and the real wind conditions can be really different from what is forecasted. In Punta Trettu the local effects often increase the wind intensity.Considering that the weather and wind statistics of the various weather services (like windguru.cz) do not take into account the thermal winds generated by morphology of local territory, the following wind statistics have been calculated considering the useful days in which we have been kitesurfing and doing kite lessons, since 2011. Those weather and wind statistics refer to the overall kite spots of southern Sardinia. Statistics for Punta Trettu are very similar to these statistics.

Anyway, you should keep in mind that often, especially with the wind of Mistral, 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. In fact, the models of wind and weather forecasts have approximatly 50 km of resolution, so for this reason they can’t predict the real wind conditions in a spot. In a weather forecast website / model you can see the forecast “in a spot” but the real wind and weather conditions can be determined by local effects (not forecasted / predicted by the model). Those local effects (e.g. thermal winds) are determined by many factors and, usually, just the local people know how are working.

So, our suggestion is to refer to the local kiteschools in order don’t miss any day of Kitesurfing.
