It has to be Windwise in Porto Pollo, Sardinia 2019  

 

We are returning to Porto Pollo in Northern Sardinia in Sept 2019. It's a gorgeous location offering freeride windsurfing in truly beautiful surroundings, one of the most beautiful places we go to. Porto Pollo gets a local thermal effect through the Bonifacio Straights and offers a unique location for Freeride windsurfing with a fabulous Italian vibe. For this trip, it is less of a full on 'clinic' and more of a mix of windsurfing coaching, plus various adventure tours, be that on a windsurfer, SUP, bike or e-bike. Plus we take you to some great eateries with local 'Blue Zone' food! What's not to like. If you fancy a windsurfing focused multi sport adventure that's also great for non-windsurfing partners too, this is it!  

What Level Do I Need To Be?
Ideally you need to be able to waterstart to get the most out of Sardinia, but if you're unsure about your level then let us know and we can talk you through it - we are here to help you info@windwise.net.  

 

 

Porto Pollo Windsurfing

Porto Pollo is a gorgeous area on the Northern tip of Sardinia. Famous for being a breezy and popular windsurfing location! The bay offers flat crystal clear turquoise water and a gybe area to crank turns after a fast blast across the bay - Bellissimo! The windsurfing centre is packed full of gear. It's ideal for intermediate to advanced intermediates. Porto Pollo is a chilled, enjoyable location for non-windsurfing partners too! Loads to do, see and taste!

 

Blue Zone Living & Food

Sardinia is known as a 'Blue Zone', which rates incredibly highly for levels of happiness, good food and a massively high number of centenarians. So, we're looking forward to sailing better, eating better, living longer and increasing our happiness! We will sample some fabulous local eateries and take in the ambience and taste of Sardinia! Magnifico!    

 

Easy windsurfing, beautiful surroundings, Blue Zone food and Windwise adventures!

Who's it for?

 

Sardinia offers easy Freeride sailing for all levels, but ideally suits those who are water starting and looking to get more comfortable blasting, cornering or just wanting a play ground to have a really great time on the water. Our WINDWISE Sardinia windsurfing clinic is aimed at intermediate-advanced windsurfers looking to move their short board windsurfing onto another level. Whether that is moving onto even smaller boards, blasting faster in more control or really wanting to speed up those turns, it's an exciting place to sail. It's great place to get inspired, try new moves and, with WINDWISE, give your windsurfing a boost!.

WINDWISE will do their best to ensure your safety and enjoyment on the water. There will be times when you're being coached individually and in a group. There will also be times when you are freesailng by yourself. Windsurfing is, potentially, a dangerous sport and you must agree to sail in a responsible manner and in the designated areas outlined to you in resort.

In the event that Simon Bornhoft is not able to make the clinic due to illness or unforseen circumstances, your WINDWISE booking and holiday are still valid and the course/holiday and adventure will still definitely go ahead and another Windwise coach will be provided for you.

**It is essential that you have thrid party windsurfing insurance!** So check your holiday insurance!
