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 advantageous 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 perfectly the following winds:

  1. Mistral, wind from North-West), that is the prevailing wind during the year,
  2. Ponente, wind from West,
  3. Scirocco, wind from South-East,
  4. Ostro, wind from South,
  5. Levante, wind from South-East.

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 particular 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.
