Water sports on Lombardy’s lakes from Lake Garda to Lake Maggiore are gaining in popularity and are being practiced by adventure lovers looking for thrills and fun.

New water sports are becoming extremely popular in the summer months, with wakeboard, flyboard, kitesurfing and SUP (stand up paddle) being the most common, though there are also subwing, wingfoil and fliteboard. Lombardy, with its five major and many minor lakes, is the ideal natural gym in which to practice these water sports, surrounded by splendid Alpine landscapes.

The adrenaline-pumping wakeboard and contemplative SUP

From the adrenaline-pumping wakeboard to the contemplative SUP the new water sports all promise an exciting mix of fatigue and fun. On the flyboard the jumps in the air become even more spectacular with or without the jet ski as the thrust produced by the propulsion system and transmitted to the boots and technical jacket will literally lift you off the ground! Kitesurfing too promises the adrenaline thrill of surfing in the clouds and doing acrobatics on the surface of the water. What do you need? Wind, a board, and a kite to hold onto using a trapeze with a handle.

Subwing, wingfoil and fliteboard

In addition to the more well-known sports, other trendy water sports are becoming popular in Lombardy, from subwing, a sort of underwater motorized snorkeling pulled by a boat, to wingfoil which involves flying over the waves on a board with a hydrofoil fin equipped with an inflatable wing with which to catch the wind. And for those who could be termed  lazy there is the fliteboard, an electric surfboard with remote control for navigating the waves.

Lombardy’s surfing lakes

With natural currents, beaches and winds such as the Pelér and the Ora on Lake Garda, or the Magiuur on Lake Maggiore, Lombardy’s lakes are perfect for indulging in the new range of exciting water sports. And there is no shortage of centres that rent out equipment and provide professional instructors.
