The most spectacular cycle path in Europe

October 24, 2017 | Category: Mountainbike

Hello everybody, 

We have a very nice surprise for you. Next season there will be a really beautiful cycle path suspended from the rock surrounding the Lake with amazing and unrivaled panoramic views, the most spectacular in Europe.

This is very special because you are not next to a main street so it is very safe, peaceful and you can really enjoy the perspective and take unique pictures. There are no motors, only E-bikes, bikes, mountain bikes and  you can go also walking to enjoy all the details of the environment  

Cycle path from Riva to Limone

Cycle path from Limone to Riva

So if you’re with anyone who wants to go kitesurfing but you don’t, you can go walking to there and look to the kite session from this beautiful spot or….. You can rent an E-bike with us. Next season we’re going to start a bicycle rental with E-bikes, so you can go on an E-bike from us to explore the whole Garda Lake.

From this cycle path you can admire the watersports; sailing, windsurf and specially kitesurf. So if you’re a girlfriend, wife or just a friend and you don’t believe that your partner is riding on the board 🙂 just walk to there and be the spectator of the kite session. Close to the Trentino line there is the best wind of Lake Garda in the morning, with the peler, but also in the afternoon with the Ora. You can take some nice videos and pictures.

They started in Limone with building the cycle path.

This part leads from Capo Reamol in Limone sul Garda, on the western side of Lake Garda, to the Trentino’s border, towards Riva del Garda, on the north side. It’s almost 2 km long and offers many cyclists breathtaking surrounding scenery. This cycle path should be completed in April 2018. The other part from the cycle path is completed in 2021 and in total it will be 190 km long and also involves 3 regions; Lombardy, Trentino, Veneto.

Before and After

 

Every time we’re on the water for the kite session we can see them building the new cycle path. We also see a helicopter working on it. They have build lanterns on the whole path, so it’s very beautiful in the night.

Work in progress new cycle path Limone

The project, which has cost 7.6 million (!!) euros, will definitely be an attraction for people who love to cycle and already arrive on the shore of the lake and dream of a beautiful route around Lake Garda.

The cycle path become real

We’re looking forward ride the bicycle with you along this beautiful new path, but of course also to do kitesurf with you!

When we arrived here we have been warmly welcomed, with prosecco at the station, from Robbie, Monica and Team Wind Riders. and the same evening we discovered that in Limone there was the yellow night, a special event  that is only once a year with music and fireworks . We went by boat with also some guest to watch fireworks from the water, it was a very special and above all a beautiful experience. 

Fireworks in Lake Garda

The first day of our internship at the beach:

We started early morning in our new Wind Riders clothes. All looking the same color, very nice and fashion, and of course with our smiling, to welcome all the clients of different nationality. Specially from German, Austrian , Swiss but also English…and Dutch :).  

We had sun and 30 degree so a lot of people ask to rent stand up paddle board. 

We were  assistant when the the boats came back from the  kite sessions  and take care about the organisation, the stuff, and the equipment: kite, boards,  wetsuits, harness and radiohelmet… 

but we went also to do our first kite surf experience. Even if it was the first time for us, the kite was fly in the amazing area between beautiful mountain. We finish with  wakeboarding , after a few mistakes everyone could stand on the board and riding.

Models for one day at the Wind Riders kite school, Limone Lake of Garda.

MAMBA BEACH kitesurf

While we were waiting for the afternoon Wind called “Ora” to start our kitesession we had a little photoshoot…

It all started out as fun.  How many photos or selfies do we make every day or every week? We send a photo to a friend, to a relative as a special way to show our mood in a little more original way then writing it. So why not show the new North collection with the logo of Wind Riders with some pictures? Exactly in the way that we use every day . So the photoshoot started and It’ has been a very fun experience. A smile is a simple thing but beautiful and has so much value. Everything looks more shining if there is one smile. A smile can not only bring something positive for a moment but can sometimes last forever. With our photos full of smiles we want to give you a moment of happiness and give you all the positive energy that the Garda Lake has.

Have a look at our photos

We took the pictures at our kite centre, located at Limone between Camping Garda and the 2 fantastic bars: “ Mamba Beach” and “Cherenguito,” where the young people come for aperitivo spritz, to talk and have fun just hanging out sitting by the swimming pool watching the view of the Lake turn from green to blue. Wonderful colours just like our north t-shirts! Thanks a lot to all the friends kite instructor: Elena, Max, Simona & Bianca. Thanks to our manager instructor Robbie who has been our official photographer and director during this photoshoot. Not bad if somebody can teach you Kitesurf and also can make a professional photo, right?

See you soon in Limone,

Monica

 

super spring kitesession on the 2nd of April

April 8, 2016 | Category: Uncategorized

Nice spring afternoon kite session with a good ora blowing.

Yesterday we had a nice session. The ora blows when the temperature difference between day and night is big. Which happens at lake Garda from mid march until mid november. (the other months it stays sometimes to cold to get this temperature difference). We had 23 degrees and where kiting with 12 meter fully powered with our small freestyle boards.

Only one other kitesurf school was on the water and that is exacty the beauty of kiting in the spring on Lake Garda. You have the whole lake almost to yourself! We went out with 4 lifters. Me (Robbie) went out on the new North Hydrofoil, Monica was jumping around with North Soleil girls board and our two lifters kited with there own equipment. After the session we went to Mamba beach for a nice hot drink and enjoy the last sunshine of the day.

Do you want to have a great kitesession on an almost empty lake Garda? Then come kite with us in April. Are you scared of the cold? Even if you lift with your own equipment we give you a neo racer jacket to stay warm during the boat ride.

Sailing and Kitesurfing in October !

October 8, 2015 | Category: Uncategorized

Even there is no summer temperature anymore the October is still perfect for sailing lessons with the catamaran and for kitesurf lessons. There is always wind so lake garda is a nice spot for kitesurfing and other water activities. Especially in October we have most of the time strong north wind. So the people enjoy the kitesurfing and the sailing. We provide you with wetsuits, life jackets and shoes ( for gloves it´s not yet cold enough 😉 ) so you feel still comfortable if it´s getting colder while having long sessions in the water. We bring you with the power boat directly to the kitesurf spot. You follow the wind and there is a lot of space around you. You learn immediately how to react in deep water and advanced riders are lucky to have the wind shuttle. You can choose between SUP, Catamaran, Dinghy, Kayak or Kitesurfing – there is something for everyone.

Even there´s only time for a long weekend or a few days, next to our surf and sailing school Limone Watersports at lake garda, Italy is the nice Hotel Villa Romantica which have great offers for this month. We have a lot of different courses you can choose. Just contact us if you want a tailored offer.

We are looking forward to welcoming you !

Catamaran sailing lessons on lake garda with limone Watersports

July 12, 2015 | Category: Uncategorized

IT IS JULY: HOT, SUNNY AND WINDY!

Perfect conditions for some catamaran sailing on Lake Garda.

Today in the morning at 6:45 all the kitesurfers met at the Limone Watersport center. They are the early birds, catching the wind further up North. At around 7:00 the RIBs leave who bring the kiters to the best wind Spot of Lake Garda.

10982365_717376838388615_8385548723060689370_n.jpgWhen the catamaran my lesson today was schedule at 8:00, for me that is late but we still got some amazing wind! After 5 minutes gearing up the 9 year old, 30 kilo Alberto was ready. Yesterday late afternoon we already practised how to put on the harness and how to stand in the trapeze. 11028031_717376788388620_353994160600796927_n.jpg

Now it was time for the real deal. As soon as we floated out towards the wind area the waves where building up. Strong wind and big waves are a hard combination to start learning trapeze sailing. So we tacked upwind (using the main sail only_) until we got at the northern kitespot. Always nice to wave at my collega’s and here you have the most stabile wind and the least waves.

Here Alberto managed to get out in trapeze and keep standing! After a little while he went hands free and even manage to touch the water.

For 5 minutes he also steered the boat but today he preferred to have fun hanging in the trapeze. 11267371_717376868388612_1532684637853402096_n.jpg

Around 10 am the wind got less so we unrolled the jib and Alberto moved the jib with every tack and gyb we made on the topcat.

10;30 we where back on the land. It was a great morning sailing the topcat with Alberto. The good news, he likes his catamaran test lesson and is going to continue learning to sail the top cat!
