Dr.Tuba Does Sardinia

With its wild coastline with steep cliffs, wonderful landscapes and unspoilt nature Sardinia offers a variety of treasures for you to discover during your journey. Looking for Farniente? Sardinia has countless fine sandy beaches and is full of sunshine.

Sardinia

The Mediterranean landscape of Sardinia is magnificent. Rocky coastlines covered with Macchia, mountains and valleys were you can hike.
You will be surprised to meet the animals still living here in unison with nature. Wild boar, white donkeys, pink flamingos, vultures with a wingspan of 2 meters ...

While hiking you will certainly find 'Nuraghi', megalith monuments which were used in past times as watchtower or dwellings.
Are you in the mood already? You will be charmed by the Sardinian culture and the hospitality of the people. Feasts, one after the other, try the traditional dishes based on local pork, lamb or goat seasoned with thyme, rosemary and other wild herbs.

Sardinia Kiting

And there is kiting. We have been on Sardegna many times all around the island. Every day is a kite day they say and usually that's true - at least from our experiences. All you have to do is travel around a bit... :) So, our team will be demoing our new kites from 6.7.2015 till 17.7.2015. Main base is BADESI on the northern coast, where we expect good thermal winds, every day. You will be able to talk with our head of R&D, Gigi, and the rest of the team!


The team will travel to some other spots:

- Porto Pollo

- Valledoria

- San Teodoro (La Caletta)

- Maddalena (Petrol Beach)

- Punta Trettu

 

The location and the date is weather prognose dependant so pls check our FACEBOOK pages from time to time!

Force Kite 2015

I have been designing kites for more than a decade now. Starting on 3m & 5m double strutted kites back in early 2000, learning to sew on a small Toyota plastic fantastic sewing machine, giving me a lot of headaches when tearing the thread every few decimeters, then progressing to second hand old industrial machines.
