  • The lift service is carried out, weather conditions permitting, twice a day. In the morning the meeting is set at 7.30 am with departure at 8 am and in the afternoon from 1.30 pm to 2.00 pm. Upon boarding, each member must have the equipment ready for use and prepared as indicated below.
  • Each member is responsible for their own material, all the equipment must be carefully prepared well in advance of the lift’s departure time, should an inconvenience occur due to the kiter’s negligence at the time of the “launch” of the wing ( crossed lines, damaged material, etc.) and consequently it will not be possible to fly the wing, the lift will still be considered carried out.

How to set up the kite:

  • Check the proper functioning of the security system
  • Unroll the lines, connect your kite lines and check again that they are not crossed
  • Wrap up the kite lines around the bar and secure them so that they are tense and they cannot untie
  • Roll the kite from the two extremities to the center
  • Insert the previously prepared bar into the center of the kite
  • Use the kite leash to tie it so that it will not unroll

NB: Our school will help you for a correct setting up of the kite on your first tryout

  • The use of life jacket marked CE (minimum 50) is mandatory. Board leashes are not an covered!!!
  • Each kiter has to have a mobile phone in a watertight for contingent problems or emergencies.
  • Weather conditions and wind speed will determine the timings of trips and the possibility of carrying out the service
  • Kiters have to comply with the rules in force for the Italian Navigation Code and local requirements.
  • The Lift Service is considered done once the kiter decides to get down to the water considering weather conditions and his abilities.
