Full description

Learn to kitesurf and enjoy gliding over the surface of the water pulled by the wind inflating the kite.

A complete and adrenaline sport that, thrill after thrill, will allow you to experience the lake or the sea from a unique perspective!

With a basic course of 2 lessons on Lake Garda, you will learn the basic techniques of kiteboarding and , together with an experienced instructor, you will take your first steps with board and kite. Are you ready?

What we will do

The course will take place at the kitesurfing school in Tignale, on the Brescia side of Lake Garda. Each of the 2 lessons will last 2 hours and will take place in mini groups of a maximum of 4 participants on days to be agreed with the instructor.

Day 1

The first day will begin with ageneral introduction to the world of kitesurfing: the use ofequipment, safety rules, the concept of the flight window, and other notions for recognising the winds and , consequently, identifying suitable areas for sailing will be explained.

Then you will move on to a fundamental part: kite control. Before you even set foot on the board, you will have to master manoeuvring the bar attached to the kite. You will perform preparatory exercises in piloting technique and body control, and then move on to the water phase, where you will begin to get a feel for the waves and practise body drag.

Day 2

The second day you will focus onusing the board, the correct positions to maintain while in the water, and starting techniques. The start, in fact, is the most problematic part for a beginner and can become frustrating if you find yourself falling many times. To avoid this, the instructor will get you into the best set-up and reveal tricks that will help you succeed from the very first attempts.

Once you have surmounted the starting hurdle, you will begin to practise sailing on the water, experimenting with different gaits depending on the wind and your skills. It will only be the beginning of a journey that will see one improvement after another and a lot of training!
