Why do I have to pay the whole course upon arrival?

– If you want the packages price, you pay the pachage and you get the package.

– If you want to pay day by day. You can, the day before we will ask you to make a downpayment for the next day and than before we go on the water you will pay the rest. Only this way you do not pay the discounted package, but you pay the day price.

 

What happens if you still have credit but you are leaving?

What happens if you still have credit but you are leaving?

Your credit stays valid also for the complete next season. You can give your credit as a gift voucher to anyone else. (just inform us). You can use your credit in our kiteshop or our online web kiteshop.

Why do I have to make a downpayment?

Why do I have to make a downpayment?

Because it is difficult for us if we reserve you an instructor and a place in the boat and than you do not show up. In high season we are often fully booked and we have send no to other people. It is not fair that we tell no to someone and than because you do not show up the boat goes on the water with one empty place.

No, you are not allowed to use a leash for securing your board. Too many accidents happen because of the use of boardleashes.Your board can hit ur head after a crash wenn it is coming back towards you!

We offer you Go-Joes that act like a sail on your board. You gonna find ur board easy without a leash!

Which boardsizes do you use?

Which sizes boards do you use?

 

Lake Garda has no waves. Just small chop. In general a slightly bigger twintip is used. 135 cm is standard. In the afternoons with lighter with also bigger boards are used. The kiteschool always gives boards for free to use incase your own is to small for the conditions.

Which kitesizes do I need to bring?

Which kites sizes do I need to bring?

For a person of 70 kilo’s we recommend the following sizes. 7,8 or 9 for the mornings and a 11,12, 13 or 14 for the afternoons.

In general you can say that if you are 10 kilo’s heavier you need a meter more. If you are lighter you need a meter less.

The kites size you use will also depend on which size board you use. The smaller the board the more power you need in your kite.

Sometimes the wind is to strong for a 7 and than you will have to use a 5 or 6. Sometimes an 11m is not enough in the afternoon and you will have to use a 13 or 14.

We have all sizes available for rent.

If you do not want to use your lift because you do not have the right kitesize we see it as a late cancellation.

For situation in which you bring all your kites, but you do not have a 5 m. We will offer a very low and friendly rental price.

If you expect to use your 14 m in the morning and you need to rent a 7. Than you will pay the normal renting price.
