records from WRF 9Km june 2007 - december 2009

As you can see PORTO BOTTE with 57% of profits days is among the windiest spot of southern Sardinia.

Moreover, while for other spots sometimes the wind can be so strong, but with not optimal direction (ex. side-off or off), in Porto Botte every day is good. Thanks to the conformation of the Golfo Palmas coast and the nearby Sant'Antioco island, you can kitesurf with any wind direction at the maximum distance of 15 Km from the base. Beyond that it should be noted that the record data don't include summer thermal winds, especially with the mistral and sirocco, that in Porto Botte reinforces the expected wind around 5 knots, turning a day to 10 knots in a 15! (Note also that Porto Botte records only 12% days without wind). Finally, by averaging out all the southern Sardinia spots, you get 54% of useful days of wind, more than a day yes and one not for whole year!
