Kitesurfing in Umbria

 

Kitesurfing is a sailing sport born in 1999 as a variant of surfing. Unlike windsurfing, it can also be practiced with weak winds, allowing tricks, accelerations and speed.
You can practice this thrilling sport on Lake Trasimeno thanks to the school Kitemaniak Lago Trasimeno, born in 2009 and recognized both at national level by FIV (Italian Sailing Federation) and internationally by IKO. Several courses are offered by this school:
Discovery – introduction to traction kite, piloting on the ground with kite, equipment set up, safety rules and wind strength and effects.
Intermediate – self-rescue, real kite piloting, body dragging, starts with board.
Independent – navigation and further improvements.
Private tuition – safety and regulations, first jumps, freestyle, physical training, kite camp in Italy, Europe and Kenya.
