The Spot by Beekite

Our Kiteschool “BeeKite” is located in Castelletto di Brenzone directly on the sea. The kite gets started directly by the boat in the middle of the lake. That´s why there is no risk to hurt anyhow on the beach. We drive you then to where there are the best wind conditions and where you have enough space. Our training area is 15 km long and 4 km large.

The Wind by Beekite

There are two main winds on the Garda Lake. The “Peler” and the “Ora”. The “Peler” comes from the north and begins already soon in the morning by 6 am o´clock. It can be gusty and and achieve up to 30 knots. Around 11 am the “Peler” eases off  and the “Ora” comes up. So the best time to be on the water is from 2 pm to 6 pm. The “Ora” offers perfect conditions for beginners as it´s a quite stabil wind and achieves around 16 knots.

Description of the classes by Beekite

Every participant gets teached individually and in order to his level. The classes adhere to the guidelines of the VDWS and IKO. After long year experience we use the different teaching-systems well directed. As there is no “standing area” it is much easier for beginners who want to learn this type of sport. You can see that already at the first flying exercises. Faults like tighten the “Bar” and flying the power-area are not a problem thanks to the deep water and the huge space we have available. Due to that we can save up until 3 hours of time,  besides there is no running back in case of loss of height until 15 km because we drive you back by boat.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Garda Lake – The New Kitesurfing mecca

Posted by kite2012 On June - 8 - 2012

Garda Lake is certainly famous for its favorable climate , and even more for its constant and regular thermal winds.

More precisely the “Peler”, a north wind, blows during the morning , from 7.00 am to 11.00 am; instead the afternoon is characterized by the “Ora”, a south wind, which blows  from  1.30 pm until 6.00 pm.

While sailing is practiced all over the lake and the area around Torbole is famous since the ’80s for windsurfing, in the recent years Brenzone has become a Mecca for kitesurfers.

The increasing popularity of Brenzone  among kitesurfers is justified by the peculiarity of its thermal winds. In fact, the “Ora” having an intensity of 12 – 17 knots is particularly suitable for beginners, while the “Peler”, with an intensity ranging from 14 to 25 knots  is typically appreciated by more experienced kiters.

Another distinctive feature of the Garda Lake is represented by the absence of adequately spacious beaches. This natural obstacle has been overcome by the kite centers in Brenzone thanks to an innovative approach:  the use of boats, commonly referred to as shuttle service, for the launching and landing phases.

In addition this system has generated undoubted advantages for kiters, the most appreciated being: increased support and assistance, the possibility to try out maneuvers without worrying about going back upwind, the unique opportunity to be taken by  boat on the best spots and last but not least a huge space to ride with a breathtaking view surrounded by magnificent mountains.

The Centro Kite Marniga offers all of this, together with a variety of courses tailored for all different levels and ages. The teaching methodology we have developed in this center, based on the use of boats and radio helmets, significantly reduces the learning time and improves the quality of the courses.
