Windfoil on Lake Garda at Malcesine

Windfoil is a sport which differs from windsurfing thanks a new innovation: a foil, a special fin under the board with hydrodynamic attachments.

This addition causes the board to rise out of the water, reducing friction and allowing surfers to pick up speed more quickly, giving the feeling of “flying” over the water.
