Windsurfing on Lake Garda
Garda Lake is the golden triangle for windsurfers thanks to its mild almost Mediterranean microclimate, with good temperatures the whole year round: the water in October is at least 18 degrees.
Lake Garda is also very windy like all Lakes and this makes it a paradise for surfers.
Torbole at the extreme north point of the lake is a famous resort for windsurfers. Beginners who wish to try for the fist time can rent the equipment and also take lessons here.
Torbole still preserves its old fisherman-village aspect that once was visited by Goethe and after the Second World War by many writers and poets. At those times it was commoner to find sailors than windsurfers.
The SurFestival is a good occasion to spend some days in Torbole. The festival is part of the biggest manifestation Outdoors Days, dedicated to out-door sports: mountain bike, canoeing and windsurf.
