In Sardinia the dominant winds are the Maestrale (North West), the Ponente (West) and the Scirocco (South East).

Mistral blows violently between October and April, especially on the northern coast of the island. In summer it is often a relief because it affects the lowering of temperatures and humidity. The Scirocco, on the other hand, blows more in the summer months because of the increase in heat, and affects the south of Sardinia more.

The Grecale, a strong north-easterly wind, is also to be taken into consideration, as it mainly strikes the north-eastern part of the island. It is one of the most violent winds of the Italian peninsula and Sardinia.

The wind can blow from 6-7 to more than 50 knots.


In Sardinia the four seasons are well marked.

In summer, between June and August, the climate is quite hot with temperatures ranging between 17 ° – 32 °.

In autumn (September-October) and spring (April-May) temperatures drop a few degrees but remain mild, between 8 ° – 24 °.

In winter, between November and March, temperatures can drop dramatically and reach 0°. November and March are the two months that can reserve good surprises with not particularly cold days.

The water temperature is quite warm from July to September (23° – 25°), in June and October the sea is chilly (20°), and during the rest of the year cold (14° – 17°).


In Sardinia the wind is suitable for hydrofoil as well as big air. You have to check the forecasts before you go and adapt the material as a consequence. On days of strong mistral or grecale, especially in winter, the wind can easily exceed 30 knots forcing you to use smaller sails, from 7m down.

In summer, however, the wind can be more moderate, and a kite above 9m-10m is more appropriate.


The rains are not heavy in Sardinia.

The rainiest period is in autumn and winter, decreasing in spring and reaching the lowest in summer, when it hardly ever rains.
