Family windsurf holiday on Lake Garda
Windsurf holiday on Lake Garda
– something for everyone
Staying at one of our recommended hotels, apartments or campsites for your family windsurf holiday, or single or group holiday, you’ll be 5 minutes walk from our beach and able to windsurf from early morning until the evening. Using modern equipment and with access to formal instruction and coaching you’ll benefit from Lake Garda, its clear, wide open waters and dependable winds.
Non-windsurfers or occasional windsurfers will find plenty of other things to do, on or off the water, or just relaxing.
RYA windsurfing courses
We offer RYA courses in windsurfing or private lessons and our own short courses for those wanting to experience windsurfing but who don’t want a certificate. All of our courses have the emphasis on practical windsurfing experience with the minimum time spent on land studying theory. Personal coaching can be organised on an hourly basis for those who wish to perfect a specific skill.
On a windsurf holiday sometimes you just want to blast but if you want instruction, we have a wide range of boards and sails and great instructors that can take you from beginner to expert.
Our location means that we can teach you during both the light and the strong wind periods of the day and you can learn close to shore until you are confident to venture out into the middle of the lake and beyond.
We are also a registered VDWS training centre for anyone wanting to receive a certificate widely recognised in Europe. The courses are similar but the RYA course material is only in English. VDWS courses can be taken in Italian, German or English.
Major international sailing centre
Full toilet, changing and showering facilities are available in the stunning club house of the Malcesine Sailing Club (Fraglia Vela Malcesine). We have a grassed sunbathing area and a seating and tuition area.
Food and drink is available at the ‘via col Vento’ restaurant which serves snacks or full Italian meals, lunchtime and evenings and has a beautiful outdoor area fronting the lake. We can make your windsurf holiday so much more than just windsurfing.
Relaxing times can also be had at the many small bars and restaurants within 5 minutes walk of our beach, by walking to nearby villages of Navene (300m) or Campagnola (400m) along the lakeside path.
