Full description

Imagine your gaze caught by a colourful'kite' flying in the sky above a body of water. You then realise that it is tied by a thread not to a simple person, but to a person standing on a board. You watch how it moves, how it keeps control of the glider, and you think: I want to do that too!

With us you can, or rather, with our VDWS-qualified kite instructor: take a basic kitesurfing lesson on Lake Como. Between theoretical and practical part, within 1 hour you will be able to master water and wind!

What we will do

I will be waiting for you at 11 a.m. at the meeting point in Dervio (LC). To find me, just follow the 'kites', the sails of my kitesurfs that colour the sky above Lake Como!

To welcome you there will be me, your VDWS qualified kite instructor. We will start our lesson on land, with a 10 minute part of basic kite theory . At 12 noon we will pick up our equipment and board the boat, reaching the centre of the lake in just 2 minutes.

Ready to put into practice in the water what you have learnt in the classroom: Initially you will be attached to me, and then you will attach yourself to the sail and let me pull you into the water. Throughout the whole experience you will communicate with me via transceiver, through which I will show you positions to hold and movements to make in order to control the kite. Thanks to my advice you will soon become a boarding and sailing champion!

When all participants on board have finished their activities, we will return to the meeting point. The basic kitesurfing experience lasts a total of 1 hour but the time spent on board may vary depending on the number of participants, so we recommend you consider the whole afternoon.

Who it is aimed at

The lesson is suitable for everyone from the age of 10.

Is this your first time kitesurfing? This lesson is designed just for you: you do not need to know how to swim or have previous experience to take part.

Other information
