KITESPOT
AND RULES

SPOT


The spot of Campione del Garda is the only beach dedicated to the practice of kitesurfing on Garda Lake that offers the possibility to practice both with Ora and Peler, the two main winds of the Benaco.
The spot is managed by ASD Kitecampione, which provides its members with assistance in the water and on land.

Campione del Garda is the lakeside fraction of the municipality of Tremosine in the province of Brescia, perfectly inserted in the coastal strip of the Alto Garda Bresciano Regional Park.
It offers scenery of particular beauty passing from the Riviera, with its climatic characteristics and Mediterranean footprint, to the mountainous hinterland where in a short time you can reach through spectacular trails, altitudes above 1800 meters.
The climate is temperate sub-Mediterranean, with average temperatures of 30 C° in summer and 10 C° in winter, which differentiate it from the other more humid and cold pre-alpine lakes.
Sporting activities in Campione are linked to sailing, thanks to the winds that blow intensely from dawn to dusk, making it a paradise for kitesurfing and sailing.
