If you don't know the wind conditions, it's easy to get in at the wrong spot and then wonder where the unique reputation of this dream spot comes from.
The windy northern part of the lake offers completely different winds and conditions at different times. An example: In Torbole, the Vento blows offshore in the morning, dangerous for novice surfers, and increases in strength on its way towards Malcesine.
That means: in the morning funboardsurfing in Malcesine with perfect conditions until approx. 10.00-12.00 o'clock.
From about 12 o'clock the Ora, the south wind starts and blows in Malcesine with a maximum of 3-4 Beaufort. In Torbole, however, with 5 Beaufort, too much for surf beginners, but optimal for funboard surfers.
The "Stickl Bay", the location of the sports camp since 1976, is a quiet protected "harbour" at Vento, ideal for children's surf courses, novice surfers and SUP paddlers!
At noon the ORA slowly sets in and creates perfect conditions for learning! In the afternoon the wind increases continuously up to force 3-4, ideal for all sailing and cat courses. If you sail only 3 km to the opposite side of the lake, it freshens up to a good 4 Beaufort and cat sailing in the double harness is even more fun.
The uniquely safe wind conditions and the perfect location in the protected bay make it possible to successfully conduct courses for all skill levels at any time! From the Opti beginner with 6 years to the kitesurfer or cat sailor in the perfection course, everyone will get their money's worth!
