The Critical Slide kite school brings together kitesurf enthusiasts but, more generally, those who love to slide on water and beyond: it makes no difference if pushed by the wind, the force of the waves, the propulsion of a paddle or the force of natural elements!
Critical Slide is a new way of experiencing the sea: passion, continuous training and constant improvement have led our school to be, in a few years, the reference point for kitesurfing for all of Southern Sardinia.
Teaching and doing business has never been our only mantra, but with balance we have dedicated the right time both to teaching and to keeping the flame of passion for this sport alive and this allows us to be a different school!
The school was born in 2008 from the idea of Marco Orrù, an IVF instructor with twenty years of experience
The philosophy of our kite school is to excel in the quality of teaching: to transmit to our students, in addition to the basic information of theory and practice, the added value that only those who have reached a high individual level can give.
Nuances concerning the technique and the approach to a training that only those who know how to do can explain!
Kitesurfing is our main sport, where we excel in teaching and services, from basic to advanced courses. We also offer a new teaching version with the innovative Exclusive project!
Our carefully chosen instructors are not only excellent teachers but also excellent kiters. Our thinking can be summed up: “whoever knows how to practice this wonderful sport can teach at a higher level”.
The very young and reigning Italian champion Alessio Pintus chose Critical Slide who found in our school the support and training he needs to achieve his goals.
It has always been thought that a kitesurfing course was necessary because it is a dangerous sport to practice alone. In reality the kitesurf course is the method, the experience that you will never forget in your life and that above all will define the type of kiter you will be in the future.
People are important to us! After each season we like to remember names, we like to know that we have had the time necessary to transmit our passion and our experience, have had the time to observe and understand their natural qualities, have created a personalized educational path for each one.
Nati con in mente le persone non i numeri
Born with people in mind, not numbers
After years of “traveling” on the South West coast we have found “home” in Porto Botte in the Gulf of Palmas between Sant’Antioco and Porto Pino. Our spot offers the most favorable wind and water conditions, with an infinite space available compared to other locations in Sardinia.
We can confidently say that it is one of the best spots in Europe.
We are one of the most important schools on the national territory,
one of the few Italian companies that, in addition to basic and advanced teaching,
train the champions of tomorrow!

Scegliamo i migliori professionisti qualificati FIV e IKO che ti seguiranno nella pratica di questo sport.
Ogni istruttore ti guiderà nel raggiungimento dei tuoi obiettivi sportivi.
Non importa qual è il tuo livello di partenza ma quali risultati vuoi ottenere
Over time, our passion for sport and for the sea has led us to find other sports to practice especially in the days (in the few days) of no wind and from this premise our second great passion is born: the stand up paddle sup.
Courses, single lessons, camps and tours are our offers to learn a sport and experience an active holiday in Sardinia
