In the summer of 1976, the Stickl Surfcamp in the Val di Sogno bay in Malcesine was the starting point for windsurfing in Italy. The Val di Sogno bay is recognized as the best beginner spot on Lake Garda.
In Torbole, the surfing fun for children and beginners ends already after a few hours of surfing in the morning with unfavorable, gusty and offshore winds. Then in the afternoon the famous Ora forces them to watch with 4-5 wind forces. In the sheltered Val di Sogno bay our 'beginners' and intermediates surf in the morning and afternoon!
Malcesine and the sports camp in the "Stickl Bay" are definitely on Lake Garda the best choice to start windsurfing !
The kids from the age of 6 also feel much safer in the manageable bay than on the open lake and the lessons are also much safer and more effective for the surf instructors. The equipment, boards, sails, wetsuits and life jackets are adapted for children's courses for children from 6-12 years.
