Windsurfing and kitesurfing: an adventure between sea and wind
In addition to the surfboard, you will also need some wind, which in these parts blows constantly enough to allow you to do jumps and stunts in the water, follow the force of the wind on the sail and have fun without ever losing sight of your safety and that of the others. We advise you to be followed by qualified instructors, there are several sports clubs that offer courses and equipment rental.
For both windsurfing and kitesurfing, you can experience the thrill of detaching yourself from the water, gliding pushed by the wind, challenging yourself in exciting acrobatics, performing jumps and tricks, all you need is good balance, the rest is pure fun.
Sports suitable for all ages and all levels of physical preparation, all you have to do is take the right size table and go wide. Small tip: prefer the beaches that offer a launch channel for getting in and out of the water in total safety.
Have you ever tried wing foiling? In Maremma you can!
If you are already familiar with windsurfing, then you absolutely must try wing foiling. The difference is that to stand up on the board you will need to maneuver an inflatable wing or sail and the force of the wind on the wing will allow you to glide or fly over the water. An alternative for those who want to try a new way of having fun in the water.
The principles are those of windsurfing and kitesurfing, you will only have to become familiar with the wing to be maneuvered directly with your hands, it is not tied to a rope as in kitesurfing and you can move it freely, it is not fixed to the board as in surfing, the rest it’s pure fun. Equipment easy to use and to assemble, no particular physical skills are required, it will only be a question of balance and wind, come and experience this new adventure in Maremma.
