For this windsurfing course we are thinking of those who like water, sun and wind and we recommend that you recharge your batteries by trying a new sport.
You will follow a 12 hour course learning the basics of windsurfing.
By the time you head home you will have learnt enough windsurfing to be able to go out by yourself. You will have had the fantastic experience of speeding over the water as if you were flying.
4 days introduction to windsurfing course
The Wind Square instructors use the VDWS teaching scheme and will teach you all the basics in the easiest way possible.
They use equipment that has been chosen as the best teaching material. Your lesson will start with some theory and on-land practise using a simulator which helps you understand the most important things about windsurfing before you get on the water.
By the end of the course you will be able to windsurf by yourself in light winds, and to understand about winds and equipment so that you can judge what to use in which conditions.

Lake Garda is a lake set about by mountains that stretches down to the Padana plains. This means that Lake Garda benefits from thermal winds which vary from zone to zone in the morning and the afternoon.
This gives a great range of winds which are suitable for beginners, improvers and experts.
On a normal day, Malcesine enjoys the northern morning wind known as the Peler which dies down in the late morning and is replaced by the southern wind Ora in the afternoon which is a lighter wind and less gusty.
