The new sport of the millennium is kitesurfing, a mixture of windsurfing and parascending. This sport originated on the sea and in the last two years has become very popular in the north of Lake Garda where, thanks to the steadily increasing winds, kite surfers can try the sensation of planning maneuvers and jumping.
At Lake Garda in the Commune of Malcesine, you can find the only beaches especially dedicated to this sport where it is possible to rent equipment and learn and understand the sport thanks to the availability of qualified instructors. Kite Center Garda Lake is a kite school with 16 years of experience, not only giving kitesurf lessons but also providing a ‘supervision’ service and renting-out kitesurfing equipment too. Every day they check out the conditions and evaluating the equipment in order to provide the best conditions to teach kitesurfing safely, easily, and quickly.
Termical wind is available to kitesurf every day of the year and Kite Center Garda Lake is a unique spot for kitesurfing at Lake Garda. Beginners find stable wind, deep water, and lots of space to learn in full safety from qualified instructors. They will become independent kitesurfers in no time. Advanced kitesurfers enjoy the strong North wind ‘Peler’ in the morning to make sky-high jumps and cruise around in the afternoon between the steep mountains.
If the beach is too crowded, the wind too light or too gusty, you don’t feel comfortable with starting from the beach or you just simply want to surf in the area with the best wind conditions, Kite Center Garda Lake provides a lift service that takes you there in a really short time. Their boats will be always available to assist you and to re-launch you and your kite if the wind’s condition changes.
You will reach the kitesurfing point of the lake with more wind as quick as possible. Your kite will be inflated by a compressor and you will be ready to surf. If the wind stops or changes during your surf session one of Kite Center Garda Lake boats will pick you up and brings you to the new point where the wind shifted. Once the wind stops you will get another lift to the beach.
In this lake you can surf with two different winds, both in a different hour of the day. The ‘Pelèr’ blows from the North during the first twelve hours of the day, involving a large part of the Garda Lake. It usually starts blowing from 02:00 or 03:00 until 11:00 or 12:00. First, it affects the northern and central part of the lake and afterward the entire surface until sunset time. It is a strong wind that forms waves and increases its intensity during the summer. This wind can reach the speed of 13 meters per second, and even more!
The wind ‘Ora’ blows from the South. It is well-known within surfers and sailors from all over the world. It usually starts blowing around 12:00 or 13:00 until sunset. The Ora achieves its maximum intensity in Malcesine Garda Lake thanks to the geographic conformation of the territory which causes the venturi effect. This particular condition guarantees a higher wind speed and perfect condition for kitesurfing.
The two part of the day when you can surf are one in the morning, between 07:30 until 09:00 to 10:00. The particular geological position of this lake guarantees that every day has almost the same condition and wind schedule. By the way, their staff is ready to interpret the wind’s condition daily, so you will always know in advance if the day is gonna be weather windy or not.
At the Garda Lake you can find many others activities that you can do when the wind is not enough to surf such as biking, climbing, canyoning, paragliding, hiking and many others. In other words, it is the paradise for sports lover. Together with these activities, the nice views and the Italian food can make your vacation at the Garda Lake unforgettable.
Malcesine is a town on the east shore of the Lake of Garda. It is surrounded by steep cliffs and gifted only with narrow beaches, kitesurfing is possible only in few spots on the lake. Malcesine’s kitesurfing is possible due to a few local kite schools that offer boat lift service right to the middle of the lake, bringing kiters where the wind blows at its best condition. Once in the water, the boats assist riders for the whole wind session (usually three to five hours depending on the conditions). The riding area is 15 kilometers long and four kilometers large. This makes the spot a good choice for beginners and intermediates who can ride safe and assisted by the guide, without worrying about losing kite equipment or risk to get hurt anyhow on the beach. Great downwinders are also possible.
