Wind Sardinia

Shoot the breeze and stay in the loop with the unhinged and unhooked word on the street.

Wind Sardinia

Post by bri »

Just looking at the forecast for the next week in the north and it looks fairly pants. Does anyone know if the thermal registers on windguru or if it's something that just comes through.

I was wondering the same thing as going to Porto Pollo tomorrow. Is that where you are.

I am heading out in september to porto pollo too...

I think the forecasts under-predict quite a bit (like mauritius if you have been there), there's both thermal and venturi driving the winds

looking forward to hearing your reviews / recommendations

I'm aware Porto Pollo is the place to Kitesurf but are you allowed to Kitesurf along the southern coast lines towards San Teodoro???

I was in Corsica a few years back and most days there was no wind but one day it did kick in. Will report back next week.

Pretty much another windless week 2nd to 9th July. A couple of days where guys were just about going on their Foil Kites (10 knots wind) and 1 day at the end with over 20 knts. I was ok in the morning on my 12 and still hanging onto it in the afternoon when everybody was on their 8s. Windguru forecast was pretty much spot on. Locals reckoned there should be more wind < but then again I have heard that before!! Chris
