The Malcesine Kite Club

The Navene beach area for kitesurfing in Malcesine

The Beach that has been given permission for Kitesurfing since the end of the 1990's, the first kitesurfers on the Lake, is on the north-east shores of Lake Garda and since 2009 a group of kitesurfers have worked with the Malcesine Council to make an area where this sport can take place.

This area is known as Navene Beach, being granted its concession as the A.S.D. KiteClubMalcesine of Garda who now run this zone.

About 400 locals and tourists use this area which has become the centre of kitesurfing in Malcesine.

To kitesurf here, and to use the Club's services, you have to join the Club and follow the rules that are published at its base.

Given the turbulent wind conditions in this area, the ban on going out of or downwind of this space allocated for kitesurfing requires that you have a licence for your ability given by a competent school or body.

For the only emergency services, the kiteclub makes available a RIB so that kitesurfing can be undertaken in safety in this area.

The afternoon wind with which you go out from Navene is the Ora, a thermal south wind, which blows with an average 12-18 knots.

From Navene, you can't go out with the Pelèr, the morning north wind, because this wind doesn't blow all the way into this coast.

For more information, have a look at the Kite Club Malcesine site or come to the Club and speak to the people that work here who are always in the area between 11am and 6pm.
