I took two classes of windsurfing in surf segnana and on both times the stuff were very welcoming and friendly and helped me a lot to get started with windsurfing. For a beginner like I was the location is good and easy to start surfing even though there are many classes going on at the same time.

Excellent location with pleasant lawn, fantastic views, and cafe selling tasty food and snacks.

But it is all about the windsurfing. At this main Segnana site everything is best organised for beginners. If all you want is more advanced windsurfing then probably you are better going to somewhere like Pier. Beginners have multilingual instructors who really know their stuff, teaching small classes. Everyone will progress. The quality of the rental and instruction equipment is good.

In the afternoon intermediates and advanced sailors are taken in a minivan to a better launch location for them in Torbole (Hotel Paradiso). This location is fantastic, but only available for 3 hours in the afternoon, and everything has to be carried through a courtyard, down narrow steps, and across the Torbole/Malcesine road near a blind corner. If Segnana could sort out better rental situation for intermediates and advanced off the Paradiso beach that would be perfect because the Paradiso beach is a very good place to sail from for anyone with planing skills who can stay upwind without assistance.

Dear Heinz,

First of all, thank you very much for your great feedback. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your holiday.
We are aware of the problem with the main road at the Hotel Paradiso, which is exactly between the school and the beach.
It is a topic that cannot be solved neither by our school nor by the communityof Torbole, but only by the state of Italy.
We very much hope that the planned, and already running actions, of the circumvention of Torbole will resolve this problem. As we know very well the traffic situation at the Hotel Paradiso, we don't have any rental of windsurf equipment over there. Therefore, we only go there with a windsurf instructor who blocks the traffic in order to let you cross the road.

We hope to see you soon again,
Sabine and the team from Surf Segnana, Torbole

In 3 days, I learned everything I needed to go kiting. Both the general skills, and even jumping. The wind was stabile and predictable, so we got value for money. The instructors were experienced and great teachers. I could recommend the VIP private-course without hesitation.

Garda lake is the heaven of all sailing classes. We rented a Topcat catamaran with my friend and had a great fun in very good weather conditions. Segnana has good equipment and good staff. Location of the school is also very nice.
