"We consistently focus on quality when it comes to kiteboarding instruction. In the following we would like to give you important information about our kitesurfing school, the training conditions, the equipment and our program."
Everyone knows that there are only a few beaches on Lake Garda. So kiting is not the right sport for Lake Garda after all?
We think so, because first and foremost the wind conditions are important!
And there is certainly not much to discuss about the wind conditions. Hardly any other spot offers more wind safety !
On Lake Garda you can kite almost every day!
A fair question. We already made a virtue out of necessity in our first year and in 2001 the Boat training developed! Launching from the trainer boat has become an optimal solution:
Our kitesurfing school has evolved from the sports camp with 40 years of experience in surfing, sailing and cat sailing and is based on this experience and routine and the existing infrastructure.
Since 2001 we are the first VDWS approved kitesurfing school on the lake of Garda.
Perfect logistics and organization is cool too!
100 % wind guarantee can't be found anywhere!
If water sessions are cancelled due to lack of wind, they will first be replaced by sessions such as waterstart simulator, wakeboarding or theory if required. If more than 50 % of water sessions are cancelled, they will be reimbursed by voucher.
In combination with hotels of different categories and price ranges near the Sportstation, we offer a package of services that is crucial for holiday fun and a sense of achievement.
The course participants and the coaching team meet at the sports office for a welcome drink and briefing.
The dry training and the preparation in theory take place in the hotel area or training tent.
After the practice "session" you look forward to a hot shower, a decent changing room and, depending on the temperature, a warm-up with capuccino and latte macchiato or a refreshing drink at the bar.
As you can see, we offer more than an internet presence and a mobile phone number, like many a "savage" on Lake Garda, without a fixed location, legal permits and therefore without insurance cover.
The weekly programme
The Weekend Program
The lesson in the morning starts either early in the morning with water training or in case of bad wind conditions in the morning at about 10.00. with a theory lesson for the VDWS kite license material knowledge and information about kites and boards. Safety systems and all questions about the kite material, dry training with videos and demos, chute setup and preparation for the water training. In addition, there are training sessions on the water even without wind - with launching exercises on the outrigger of the simulator boat. Launching with engine power without kite to develop the driving feeling for the first launch with kite.
The afternoon program starts after a common lunch with the team on the terrace of the restaurant ROSA, right next to the sports camp. As soon as the famous Ora, the thermal wind announces itself, the kite boats leave for the afternoon session. Depending on the wind and weather, the start time varies as well as the return of the kite boats after the session. The course times will be published online on the Stickl website in time!
