Hi, If you wanna go north between porto pollo and la caletta (thermal winds) could be right the place. I'd rather prefer the south west. Crazy thermals at la maddalena spiaggia (aka petrol beach) which is a ugly beach too Otherwise Chia, Porto Botte with NW and if you like waves you can go to Capu Mannu.
Hi guys, On the South-West coast of Sardinia you can find the best conditions for kitesurfing. Especially In the summer with the Mistral which is the dominant wind in Punta Trettu and Porto Botte and thanks to the thermal wind you can have 5/10kn more than the forecast says, super flat water and no swimmers. If you prefer waves (rare in the summer) you can kite in Funtanamare and Porto Pino. The South is also cheaper and less crowded than the North of the Island (for restaurants, accommodations, etc.). Wishing good wind to everybody, Dan
Most beautiful spot is La Cinta (San Teodoro) though, NE, beautiful ride!
I really love kitesurfing in La Cinta, but as you said it works only with NE winds which in summertime do not blow as often as NW-W-SW winds (the same for La Caletta-Siniscola). That is why many people advise to go to Porto Pollo (frequent wind but gusty), or to the SouthWest: Porto Botte (best wind, but not the best beach around), Porto Pino (amazing beach, but you can kite only from september to May), Punta Trettu (very beatiful and perfect for beginners), Chia (amazing beach but there are waves), the so-called Petrol beach near Cagliari (not a beatiful beach, but it's the only spot that works with local thermal winds - i.e. when no general circulation winds are blowing). For wave experts there are also plenty of spots along the West coast of Sardinia (google Capo Mannu "Capo del Capo" surf contest https://www.google.it/search?q=%22capo+del+capo%22+capo+mannu&biw=1467&bih=677&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=nWrLVN7CMsLoaoGIgeAE&ved=0CCcQsAQ)
Personally, my favourite spots are in the Southwest, my advise is to rent a car wherever you go
