STUFF TO BRING
For sure the wetsuit is the most important thing you need to have in Lake Garda. During the whole year you need to wear a wetsuit as the water temperature is always cold. During the winter time you need to have at least a 5 mm wetsuit, boots and hood. During the summer time you need to have a 3/2 or ‘shorty’ wetsuit. Don’t forget your sun cream, as the sun can be very strong as you are in the mountains.
NO WIND ALTERNATIVES
In case of no wind you can do many other things in Lake Garda. You can rent a bike in all the cities and cruise the trails around the lake. If you like climbing, close to Lake Garda there are many famous mountains and for hiking there is plenty of nice lake view pathways to choose from.
If you have a camper or a van and a tight budget then a great option is taking advantage of the many campsites along the lakeshore. For hotel type accommodation then Torbole is the most popular spot for windsurfers to stay at with a wide range of choices available.
