Known for the aquamarine-hued sea, verdant vegetation, and sun-drenched beaches, Corsica and Sardinia are among the most gorgeous destinations in the Mediterranean. Since the two islands are separated by less than 10 miles and boast epic kitesurfing opportunities, water sport lovers are usually on the fence about which one to choose. Luckily, you’ll get to visit both! Head on a week-long sailing and kitesurfing camp on board a comfy catamaran, learn about route planning, anchoring, mooring, and safety on board, and master some new tricks such as toeside, downloop, jibe, hooked jumps with rotations, and more. Your expert guide will show you both secluded spots and some more popular areas like the world-famous Porto Pollo on Sardinia’s north coast, the La Maddalena area, the Strait of Bonifacio, and many others. Let the constant mistral wind propel you into an unforgettable adventure in the heart of the Mediterranean and watch your kitesurfing skills improve in no time!

  • Ideal kitesurfing conditions due to the constant mistral wind

  • Revel in the views of the turquoise waters and white, sandy beaches

  • Master the basics of sailing navigation and develop your existing kitesurfing skills

Clea M. about The Action Cruise on Google Reviews

Amazing crew, spectacular spots (wave/flat/no one else in the water, incredible colors), awesome atmosphere, great boat, great food.. it’s such an experience. Great professionalism mixed with great people. It’s a tightly-run ship, Fede and Giulio know what they’re doing. I felt very safe kiting & sailing, including in rough sea. It’s a great opportunity to improve your kiting skills in different set-ups. And I had so much fun. And I ate so well thanks to Jordane. I come out of the cruise reloaded for months. Recommend 100% !!!

Edoardo A. about The Action Cruise on Google Reviews

Second year enjoying the Action cruise and my feedback is more than positive! Very professional crew, super chef on board, they make you feel at home and make a big effort to let you spend most of the time in the water kiting! They know beautiful and secret spot where is possible to kite alone! I will definitely recommend this experience! Thanks Fede, Giulio and Jordane for being always so kind with us!

Things to know

  • 57hours is committed to providing safe outdoor adventure experiences. We require all guides using our platform to have a COVID-19 safety plan and to make the details of that plan accessible to travelers. In most cases, group sizes will be reduced, guides will avoid overcrowded locations, and other safety measures will be met depending on the location and activity. 

    We also expect clients to respect local regulations and take measures to protect themselves, guides and the communities they’re travelling to. For more information on COVID-19 measures in Sardinia, Italy and Corsica, France, please refer to Italy’s Ministry of Health Website, Italian National Tourist Board Website,  and France Diplomacy’s advice for travelers and foreign nationals.

    Please contact us if you have any questions or require further information. We are happy to provide you with the most up-to-date information!

      • Alcoholic beverages
      • Technical kitesurfing gear (can be rented from your guide)
      • Wetsuits 
      • Booties 

    NOTE: Private kiting lessons for beginners, intermediate, and advanced kiters, as well as the North KB 2022 kite gear can be demanded and purchased on request. The Assistance Plus package is for independent riders who need help to start from onshore beaches or to come back to offshore beaches, or who want to feel safer during days with demanding conditions or in technical spots. It consists of 3 lifts per day.

  • The only thing your instructor will expect from you is that you know how to swim, but of course, being in good shape helps. Strength isn’t a necessary component to successful kiteboarding; it’s all about the technique.

  • In order to participate in this sail and kite camp in Sardinia and Corsica, you need to be an intermediate or advanced kitesurfer. You are expected to be able to ride upwind consistently in all wind conditions, control the kite on land, body drag upwind, relaunch the kite from the water, body drag to your lost board, and self-land the kite with chicken loop quick release. 

    NOTE: If you’re not comfortable with these skills, you must declare your ability and take a leson for beginners or the Assistance Plus package during the camp.

    Even though this camp is for intermediate and advanced kitesurfers, 1 beginner can join as well. The lessons for beginners are carried out by IKO instructors and the student is assisted and followed by a tender (safety boat) with radio communication. The lessons last for a maximum of 1h per day. More lessons for beginners are possible in case of groups of kiters requesting a camp with the entire catamaran. If you have a beginner in your team,  contact us prior to booking to make arrangements.

  • The complete kite gear set (kite set, bar, twintip board, and harness) can be rented from your guiding service for an additional fee on request and is available only for experienced kiters. 

    When it comes to the equipment you need to bring, here’s what you’ll need:

      • Day pack large enough to carry all the items listed
      • Water bottle
      • Clothing for 7 days
      • Wetsuit
      • Booties
      • Food you can eat on-the-go
      • Toiletries (sunscreen, bug spray, toilet paper, etc.)
      • Sunglasses
      • Swimsuits
      • Towels
      • Sweater
      • Camera — optional

    Wetsuit and booties can be rented for an additional fee. Let us know if you need this gear as it is mandatory equipment for the camp.

      • Twintip board for $170/camp
      • Surfboard for $225/camp
      • Foil board for $275/camp
      • Kite set for $330/camp
      • One kite size for $170/camp

  • Group sizes and prices:

      • The max. number of participants for the sailing and kitesurfing camp is 7 for group tours and 8 for private tours.
      • The cabins on offer (single cabin, double cabin shared with another kiter, or a double dedicated cabin) can be selected according to availability. The tour price is based on a Shared Double Cabin. 
      • Cost is per person.
      • If joining alone, you’ll be placed with peers that share a similar level of experience.

    There are three available cabin sizes:

      • Small Single cabin — $1,800 per person
      • Shared Double Cabin (double occupancy) — $2,100 per person
      • Dedicated Double Cabin — $4,100 per person

    As for the Small Single Cabin, keep in mind the following:

      • It is well ventilated with 2 windows and has a little shelter to store personal items and clothes
      • It doesn’t have a private bathroom, you will share the toilet of the crew’s or other kiters’ cabin
      • The access is only from the external deck throughout the hatch on the bow of the boat
      • The cabin has no floor, when you will enter you will step in directly on the mattress
      • There is very little space to store clothes, you will have to keep them partly in the small cabin partly in a small bag in the living area

      • After 75 days before the date of beginning of the camp, the refund is not possible 
      • The Action Cruise will make a reasonable effort to find a substitute member and provide a partial refund voucher. The amount of the voucher is established by The Action Cruise. No voucher will be given if your guiding service is unsuccessful in finding a substitute kiter. 
      • A voucher in the value of the amount paid will be provided in case the guide has to cancel the entire Kite and Sail Camp Sardinia & Corsica 2022, due to impossibility to enter Italy and perform activities due to restrictive measures imposed by Italy as a consequence of Covid-19 epidemic
      • The voucher is not provided if impossibility and cancellation occur after May 10 for periods May 15 – May 21; May 22-28; May 29-June 4, 2022 or September 20 for periods September 25-October 1 or October 2-8, 2022.
  • To get to your meeting point in Cannigione, Olbia in Sardinia, most people fly into Olbia Costa Smeralda Airport (OLB) about 35 minutes away from Cannigione. From there, you can rent a car, or take a bus or taxi to get to Cannigione.

    Once you and your guide agree on the details of your itinerary, you will meet your guide in Cannigione in Sardinia at a predetermined location, where your sailing and kitesurfing camp will start. The catamaran will depart from Cannigione after the first briefing and when you check in at 9.30 am. On the last day, you’ll check out between 9 am and 10 am, and the catamaran will arrive in the marina either the evening before the last day or the morning of the last day.
