The first time in Capo Mannu is never forgotten ... Sardinia gave us a week of wind and waves in the height of summer, and so I had the opportunity to finally try what is probably the best wave spot of the Mediterranean sea.

 

WINDSURFING, REPORT: CAPO MANNU, SARDINIA, 13 JULY 2021

I have to thank Alessio Pears Negrelli for this trip, since the bad boy from Modena, with his enthusiasm, dragged me, busy planting umbrellas in Stintino ...., in this beautiful trip to the Sinis peninsula, to take the swell and the wind of this anomalous disturbance in the height of summer.

Needless to say, it was love at first sight ...

The Oristano area is always very beautiful, with its gentle, green countryside, dotted with ponds, and its wild coast. Two hours drive through Sardinia, and from Stintino I reach Funtana Meiga. But in Funtana, the wind, side / side-off from the North, is gusty and there was no wave.

Meanwhile, Mr Negrelli updates me on the conditions in Putzu Idu. Wind around 20-25 knots, perfectly side, with the first riders already planing in the bay. And a couple of meters waves at the Capo .... Optimal conditions to leave directly and comfortably from the beach of Putzu Idu, without complicating your life from Mini Capo, or from the small beach at the Capo, which remain more covered, and receive only weak wind.

20 minutes by car, and I'm in Putzu Idu too. I park the car comfortably at the Lepori Restaurant. The beach is not crowded (unlike in Stintino ....). Wonderful sunny day, like those that, in general, the mistral gives. I rig the Ezzy Wave 4.7 2021, and prepare the Tabou 3s 106 LTD 2015, with MFC freewave 25 fin. Supposing only light winds, and zero waves, during my summer holiday here, I made the mistake of bringing only the freestylewave 106 board, and the 93-liter freestyle board, with me. Having discarded the hypothesis of entering the water with freestyle, with which making a bottom would be complicated, I choose the most wave board I have behind .... Shorty wetsuit and go, I enter the water at Putzu Idu; I let myself drift a bit with the wind behind me, and I chase Alessio, who is already flying with his Quatro Pyramid 77.

Before leaving, I walk the dirt road that leads to the Capo cliff, and take some photos of the riders still in the water. I meet Nemo, globetrotter, surfboard shaper, who "lives" in Portugal, and who, like me, is enthusiastic about the conditions that Capo Mannu is offering today.

I leave the Oristano area with a bit of melancholy, and with the desire to return as soon as possible: a touch of real Sardinia (at least for me), in the middle of summer.

Hang loose. Fabio
