The price of camp is based on one kitesurfer in a shared double cabin. If you’d like to have your own room, you can check that box below. We’ll try to accommodate you as you wish, but please bear in mind that the catamaran has a limited number of spaces and we cannot guarantee your selected cabin’s availability. If you don’t check any boxes, we’ll assume you want to stay in a shared double cabin.

Your guide can provide all necessary equipment for an additional fee. Gear is available for experienced kitesurfers only. You can read more about the rental and the prices in our FAQ.

    • In order to join kitesurfing adventures in Sardinia, you need to be at an intermediate or advanced level of kitesurfing. Kitesurfers need to be able to ride upwind consistently in every wind condition, control the kite on the land, body drag upwind, relaunch the kite from water, body drag to their lost board, and self-land the kite with chicken loop quick release.

    • Even though this camp is for intermediate and advanced kitesurfers, one beginner per date 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. Beginner, intermediate, advanced and foil lessons are €100 per hour, while wing beginner lessons are set at €80.

    • The ideal time to go kitesurfing in Sardinia is spring and fall. The mistral wind is the dominant one in the area, blowing from the northwest with an intensity between 15 and 35 knots. Mistral is strong and reliable, providing endless days of kitesurfing opportunities. If mistral is off, east and southeast winds will step up and open up other secret spots. A 3-4 mm wetsuit is advised for colder days.

    • While you’re cruising the waters of North Sardinia and South Corsica, your home for the week will be the Nautitech 46 Fly, a 46-foot long catamaran. Built in 2019, the flybridge offers a 360° view of your surroundings and can accommodate up to 7 kiters and 3 crew members. This is a true liveaboard catamaran, whose comfort and modern design make it the perfect place for longer journeys.

      You have a choice between two cabins: the small single one and the double cabin. The double cabins are cozy with enough space for two people and an ensuite bathroom.

      As for the single cabin, keep in mind that it’s well-ventilated with 2 windows, but it doesn’t have much storage space nor a private bathroom. Regarding the storage space, you’ll keep some of your things in your cabin as well as in the living area. There’s also no floor space—when you enter, you will step in directly onto the mattress.

      The rate is based on sharing the double cabin, but there’s also an option of being by yourself in the single or the double cabin. You can tell us your preferences upon booking.

    • Group sizes and prices:

        • The max. number of participants for the sailing and kitesurfing camp is 7 people.
        • The cabins on offer 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 in a shared double cabin. Contact us prior if you’d like another type of accommodation.

      Min. age requirements:

      • If you are older than 18, you’re good to go.
      • While there is not necessarily a minimum age to kitesurf, there are minimum requirements, such as height and weight. Prior to booking, let us know the youngest ages in your party and we will let you know if it’s safe for them to get on the water. 

      If your group has minors under the age of 18, contact us prior to booking to make arrangements.

    • 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.

      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.

    • 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.
