Full description

If you're a kitesurfer, you know that light wind days make sailing difficult. But today, thanks to the use of thehydrofoil, you can overcome all limitations and enjoy speeding across the water even in light winds.

The hydrofoil board, thanks to its special 'fin', allows you to sail above the surface of the water, greatly reducing friction, increasing speed and giving you the feeling of flying through the waves.

With a hydrofoil session on Lake Garda you can experience this new way of surfing and try out for yourself what seems to be the new frontier of kiteboarding!

What we will do

The meeting point for the activity is the port of Tignale, on the Brescia side of Lake Garda. You will meet the instructor who will hand you the hydrofoil board and provide you with the main notions for using it. After that, you will reach by dinghy the spot on the lake with the best winds for the activity. The instructor will help you get started and follow you as you experiment with the new kitefoil feel.

If this is your first time withhydrofoil, it is likely to take you a while to learn how to balance your weight well so that the fin does not come out of the water and to avoid falls. But once you get the hang of it, sailing will be smooth and fast.

Thehydrofoil is the next step up from traditional kitesurfing. Born with the aim of helping kiters on days with little wind, it is now increasingly used for its greater speed, regardless of wind conditions. It is therefore reserved for experienced kiters.

Hydrofoil is not recommended for those without good sail and board control and good sailing technique, even with directional boards.

The total duration of the activity is approximately 1 hour.

Who it is aimed at

This activity is at an advanced level and is reserved for those who already have a good sailing technique and mastery of kiteboarding.
