The safest spot for the first weeks on the board! On Lake Garda in the protected Val di Sogno bay in Malcesine.

“Nowhere on Lake Garda is it easier for beginners to get on the board! Val di Sogno, the recognized best spot on the lake to start windsurfing! Surf cracks take off while windfoiling!”

Beginner Course

Anyone can learn to windsurf! In the beginner course with perfect wind conditions in our “dream bay” Val Di Sogno the learning success is guaranteed! With the right board and sail and a professional trainer everything works out easily.

Advanced Course 1

Didn’t gain any further riding experience after the beginner course? Not surfed for a long time? Do I book again in a beginner course or do I already manage the next step in the F-course?

For this target group we have added a refresher course Advanced 1 to the program. The basic knowledge after the beginner course will be deepened. You start right away in favorable light wind conditions in the first practice unit and improve the maneuvers. After 5 days with 3 hours of instruction each, the stand-up sailor has become a windsurfer, albeit still in light winds, but already ready for the next step to trapeze surfing in the F 2 course.

Advanced Course 2

Who has got the desire for more after the beginner’s course should tackle the step from stand-up sailing to windsurfing in the F1 course in the next course. Use the right hanging technique in stronger winds.

Then it’s straight on to trapeze sailing and the beachstart-technique that must be learned before you can think of funboard surfing and gliding in the footstraps. With medium winds in Malcesine we have the ideal conditions for this level of course.

Who is your instructor

portrait of heinz stickl

Since 1976, one team has been passing on its experience to the next. New employees are trained into a proven team in good time so that they are then fit for the “changing of the guard”. In this way, each team grows with the experience of the “old ones”.

The technical skills in surfing, kitesurfing and sailing are of course constantly improved by the possibility to train in optimal wind conditions. Team training sessions and daily briefings guarantee a uniform system and contents of the courses.

Beach Hotel Rosa Malcesine

The “Stickl Hotel” on the lake, right next to the sports camp station on the beach is the best choice for our course participants. The Beach Hotel Rosa in absolute 5-star top location directly on the beach next to the sports camp offers Watersport & Relax at 3 star prices. The public is active in sports and appreciates the comfort of living directly on the water – from bed to board. With restaurant, pizzeria and bar, the Rosa Beach is also the meeting place after the sports session.

Meeting Point



I took the two day, weekend beginner wind surfing course.

They’re well organised, the equipment seemed good and everything worked just fine.
Best of all, they have a mobile friendly website where they give you regular updates for your course, so you don’t have to stay at the school and wait for the weather – you can go elsewhere (within 30 minutes) and keep an eye on the website and just come back to the camp when they notify you on the website.


Tolle Segelschule mit perfekter Organisation. Hier kann jung und alt alles rund um den Wassersport lernen. Wir kommen gerne nächstes Jahr wieder.
