Learn windsurfing-foiling on Lake Garda the Eldorado of the Foilers in Malcesine

Stickl Sports Camp

"Windsurfers go airborne while foilsurfing on Starboard Foilboards at our Lake Garda Foiling Camp!"

Learn windsurfing on Lake Garda

Windsurfing foils, hovering above the water surface and silently racing over the water with only 3 wind forces-this impresses more and more windsurfers. A new challenge, a new technique that has to be learned. The fascination of the efficiency that foiling offers brings more and more windsurfers into the air. Especially at spots with light to medium winds, this offers a completely new possibility to have a lot of fun while windsurfing or better flying on the windsurfing board again. To take off with less sail area at almost 8 knots is no witchcraft. On the contrary, foiling is relatively easy to learn, provided that you are an "old hand" on the "normal funboard" and master your windsurfing board with all relevant manoeuvres in gliding mode. Foiling is nothing for beginners and swordboard pilots.
On Lake Garda the best conditions are in the middle part of the lake in Malcesine, where the Ora blows with 2-4 Beaufort. We have already started windsurfing foiling in 2015 and have gained valuable experience in training.
Since May 2018 we now offer several weekend camps with STARBORD. Test board and foils and train with professionals is the concept. In addition to the camp program, there is the possibility to book courses and private lessons or to rent the foil board.

Learn2Fly is our motto at the FOILING CAMP!

Windfoiling or windsurfing foiling with Starboard

After a test season in 2017, we have also been going full throttle with windsurfing foiling since the summer of 2018! With the Starboard 147 Carbon we provide the best equipment.

Here's what Surf Magazine has to say about it:

The mother ship of the foilers is undoubtedly the Starboard Foil 147, which not only offers incredible stability already during planing, but in combination with the Starboard Foil also the smoothest flight attitude and easiest jibing characteristics!

  • Foil Physics & Safety
  • Material handling on land
  • Passive anfoil
  • Active approach with "Kick" pumping & approaching
  • Control of flight altitude - weight trim, mast position, sail pressure, luffing/dropping
  • Altitude running, turning, space wind driving
  • Jibes in 3 variations: classic power jibe without flight, initiate in flight & touch down.
  • Airial-Jibe

Theory and dry training and intensive training with radio helmets are part of the program. A trainer boat is always on the water and all participants get their photos and videos at the end of the course.

Schedule of the Weekend Course:

  • Approximately 3 hours of training time daily, with dryland training and water session. 
  • Two participants take turns on one board. This is a necessary methodical decision, because the " pilots" get tired after about 20-30 minutes, the concentration decreases and makes a break necessary.
  • On the trainer boat, each student gets up close and personal with the trainer's radio inputs, sees the effects in the drivers, and learns a lot by observing.
  • This system has also proven its worth in training courses on "flying sailboats".
  • The maximum number of participants is 4 people on two foil boards. 

Course times:

The course times will be determined by the coach at short notice according to the wind situation and communicated via Whatsapp. Ready for take-off at the weekend course from Saturday 8.30 a.m. to Sunday 4.00 p.m.

Equipment:
We provide wetsuits, harness and life jackets free of charge. Shoes should be brought along. Or you can purchase the ideal neoprene slippers for only 30€ on site.
