Overview

Lake Garda is the biggest lake in Italy, halfway between Milan and Venice, on the edge of Dolomites – views there are definitely scenic! Lake is more than 50 km long and almost 17 km wide and has 5 islands. Lake is deep – more than 100 m in the average and the deepest point reaches 346 m. There are many kite spots around the lake, some of them reachable only by boat. Most of the kite spots are located in the northern part (both sides of the lake), Brenzone sul Garda, Porto, Campione, Limone sur Garda, Navene. Not every spot is beginner friendly, some spots constantly reach 30 knts. Mostly thermal wind so statistics might not be really accurate

Wind

Stable wind, two different thermal wind (from the north until the mid-day and south in the afternoon), stronger in the afternoon.

Dangers

Rocks on the beach, small space to launch.

It is your responsability to check whether kitesurfing is allowed at the spot; you might need a 'special permit' or membership from a local kite organization, etc. Local rules can change. Respect others - kiters or not; kite safely and enjoy the wind!
