Meet the team

Our school is our family, we’ve been kiting since 2005 and we started teaching in 2006. Kitesurfsardinia was one of the first schools in southern Sardinia. It started with a couple of kites and boards, now we are a big international professional team.

The “Boss”, my mother use to say that I’m “A dreamer with an endless imagination”.

Degree in computer science: I was a software engineer for 8 years, I worked for Siemens and Atos Origin. I was responsible on design and developement of compex web applications like: TimBusiness Portal, Snam Rete Gas, Web Portal di etc. But one day I threw my tie, my suit and keyboard and i start to work as kitesurf instructor. On 2005 i got the authorization from Sardnia central goverment to set up the kitezone of Porto Botte, the first official kitezone in south Sardinia.

On 2006 i start my adventure as kitesurf instructor with the italian certification FKI. On April 2010 I joined to IKO and I did the IKO L1 Water instructor course in the school newKitezone leaded by Agostino Martino, another legend as IKO instructor. On September 2010 I went to Egypt to follow one instructor stage of 2 months in the Pro-KiteAcademy kite school, owned by the IKO Examiner Massimiliano “Max” Piona. The experience that I did working with Max is great. October 2012-April 2013 I was Head Instructor in a kitesurf school Mui Ne-Sardinia, and I came back home with a contract to open my kite school in the pocket!

On July 2013 I reached the highest certification as kitesurf instructor in the IKO:

Hello, I’m Lelya. I’m the mother of William and Alex’s wife. Kiteschool is the first child in our family. I tried kite in Russia in 2004 and fall in love with this sport. In 2009 I did my first trip to Vietnam and there I became kite instructor. In 2014 I discovered Sardinia.

I love this sport and I love this great feeling when you on the water. To teach forme¬† it’s always a pleasure, I’m very passionate and I got long experience teaching.

So I’m always saying – Everyone can kite just TRY IT!
